About the Book: “Making Rumours” tells the fascinating, behind-the-music story of the making of Fleetwood Mac’s classic 1977 “Rumours,” written by the producer who saw it all happen. The album topped the Billboard 200 for 31 weeks and won the Album of the Year Grammy. More recently, Rolling Stone named it the 25th greatest album of all time and the hit TV series “Glee” devoted an entire episode to songs from Rumours, introducing it to a new generation. Now, for the first time, Ken Caillat, the album’s co-producer, tells the full story of what really went into making “Rumours”—from the endless partying and relationship dramas to the creative struggles to write and record “You Make Loving Fun,” “Don’t Stop,” “Go Your Own Way,” “The Chain,” and other timeless tracks.
