Praise For Making Rumours

"If you've ever wondered what it's like to cut an album with a legendary band who made one of the most popular rock albums in sales and airplay history, then this is the book for you. It's just an incredible story about how songs like 'Dreams' or 'You Make Loving Fun' were created, and the talented musicians who made them, with the help of the producers and engineers who put them down on tape and brought them to life."
Tom Johnston, the Doobie Brothers

"It's hard to imagine the tensions and freak-outs that go on behind studio doors when a band is making a follow-up to a number one album. But throw in broken relationships between band members and an endless supply of cocaine, and for me as a producer, the next step would be to light the fuse and walk away. Ken Caillat, though, ran the course, and you get to read how he survived (well, almost)."
Dave Stewart, award-winning songwriter/producer and founder of Eurythmics

For one year in the studio there were massive quantities of drugs, alcohol, tempers, jealousy, doubts, and insecurities. Three couples separated and three couples cheated. But that's just the backdrop.

The real story is how the five talented but troubled young musicians of Fleetwood Mac managed to make one of the greatest albums ever recorded. In Making Rumours, coproducer Ken Caillat takes you behind the scenes to witness the personal, creative, and technical challenges he and the band overcame to make music history.
