Ken Caillat is an active record producer nominated for two Grammy's and his Daughter, Colbie Caillat is a 2 time Grammy nominee and has just released her 5th album this week, a Christmas album titled Christmas in the Sand. Ken has studio's in Santa Monica and Westlake Village, California. This might be the best rock and roll biography I have ever read; perhaps one of the best books period I have read in a long time.
Maybe its Caillat's easy manner, his perfect recall, the way he completely opens up about the mid 70s in California & brings the reader along for the journey.I have just finished reading your book, thank you for taking me on a journey behind the making of my all-time favourite album. Of all the books I have read over the years this stands out in my top five music books of all time.Thanks again and I am off to play the album one more time :) But Making Rumours is also about creating the music & here is where Caillat shines as he lovingly illustrates in detail how the songs of this seminal Grammy-winning album were birthed.
Making Rumours is a insightful and thorough read about a pivotal time...in one man's life.~ Ralph Greco, VINTAGE ROCK
editor: Johnny Cash-The Man in Black"Producer-engineer Ken Calliat tells the story behind "Rumours" like a taut Hollywood screenplay, rich with crisis, conflict and confrontation in possibly the best book yet about the recording studio. One of the best-selling albums of all time is now one of the greatest rock stories of all time."Joel Selvin
San Francisco Chronicle, Senior Pop Music Correspondent The best book I've read. I was a little sad to finish it. It seems that making that album was everything I hoped it would have been, plus some. You obviously had a lot to do with the magic of it, but it is definitely the telling of that story from your point of view that is the true magic of the book. I found myself "helping" you fine tune and press down the 2 buttons of the 24 track several times. I had Rumours on lightly in the background while I read much of the book. The album sounds just a bit different now...and somehow even better than before. Thanks Ken :) Bob Barger
From the Author
"Rumours by Fleetwood Mac - the album absolutely changed my life, and yours, too. Containing brilliant songs byLindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, it's a classic among classics. Producer Ken Caillat has a brilliant book coming out on the making of Rumours, but ahead of its release, he spoke to me about how he tracked the mega disc cut-by-cut."Joe Bosso
