New 'Fleetwood Mac FAQ' Book Offers Deep Dive Into The Band's Life And Work
Out now is one of the best books on Fleetwood Mac with the new Fleetwood Mac FAQ: All That's Left To Know About The Iconic Rock Survivors. The 376-page tome by author Ryan Reed chronicles over 50 years of the band with in-depth and previous unpublished interviews with key players throughout all the eras, with every album, side project, and member being dissected and celebrated. In addition to new testimonials from the band's musical and technical support teams over the years, Fleetwood Mac FAQ features interviews with former Mac members guitarists Rick Vito and Billy Burnette, their producers Ken Caillat, Richard Dashut, John Shanks, and Mike Vernon, studio crew members Rich Feldman, Ray Lindsey, and Ken Perry, "along with others who've been privileged to join the band's inner circle." As the press release for FAQ states: "Sure, the book touches on the band's notorious drug use, romantic affairs, and brutal in-fighting -- more importantly, it also sheds fascinating new light on the band's innovative, ever-evolving music." Lindsey Buckingham told us that the recording of both Rumours and Tusk forced the band to consistently bury their emotions for the sake of art: "If there was one worst thing it was probably just that it was difficult for all four of us as two couples to have broken up, to be alienated -- probably to have not gotten anything close to closure. And to still kind of have to move forward. And in order to do that you had to kind of compartmentalize your emotions a little bit. You had to seal one thing off here and get on with the rest of it there. It was probably an exercise in denial." in Fresno, California at Save Mart Center.
