All That's Left to Know About the Iconic Rock Survivors

Book Description

Offering a fresh perspective on one of the most prolific and well-loved catalogs of songs in the rock 'n' roll canon ÊFleetwood Mac FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Iconic Rock SurvivorsÊ digs deeper than your average music compendium and sidesteps the tediousness of most generalized band histories.ÞProfessional yet playful the book's most unique feature is its structure: a hybrid of historical breakdowns Q&As music criticism and best of lists chronicling the band's influence and legacy. No Fleetwood Mac book would be complete without addressing the sensationalism of ÊRumoursÊ or the mythic psychological breakdown of Peter Green. But ÊFleetwood Mac FAQÊ casts a wide net ä avoiding monotony for longtime fans by presenting new criticism and reporting and engaging with newcomers by addressing the most essential chapters in the band's story.ÞIncluded are interviews with former Fleetwood Mac members (guitarists Rick Vito and Billy Burnette) producers (Ken Caillat Richard Dashut John Shanks and Mike Vernon) studio crew members (Rich Feldman Ray Lindsey and Ken Perry) rock critics who've covered the group (Anthony DeCurtis) and others who've been privileged to join the band's inner circle. Sure the book touches on the band's notorious drug use romantic affairs and brutal in-fighting ä more importantly it also sheds fascinating new light on the band's innovative ever-evolving music.
