In this behind-the-scenes look at the making of Fleetwood Mac's epic; platinum-selling double album; Tusk; producers and engineers Ken Caillat and Hernan Rojas tell their stories of spending a year with the band in their new million-dollar studio trying to follow up Rumours; the biggest rock album of the time.
Following their massive success; the band continued its infamous soap opera when its musical leader and guitarist; Lindsey Buckingham; threatened to quit if he didn't get things his way; resulting in clashes not only with his band but especially Caillat; who had been essential to the band's Grammy-winning sound.
Hernan Rojas' story recounts a young man who leaves Chile after General Pinochet's coup to seek his future in the music industry of Los Angeles; where he finds success at one of the hottest studios in town. When Fleetwood Mac arrives; Rojas falls in love with its star singer; Stevie Nicks; and the two of them become romantically involved.
Throughout the book; both Caillat and Rojas detail not only the trials and sacrifices they made to finish the album; but also triumphs of musical inspiration and technical innovation that have made Tusk the darling of music critics and indie rockers today.
