The Carol Ann story, with glimpses of Lindsey Buckingham & Fleetwood Mac
Although the writer, Carol Ann, gives harsh portrayals of everyone else she came in contact with, she makes herself out to be a perfect angel. In her writing, Carol is an innocent, giving waif surrounded by egotistical, self-serving people. Since no human is that perfect, it makes her story seem biased and unbelievable.
After nine chapters, I had enough. It is unlike me to not finish a book I start reading, but I didn't buy the book to learn all about her and how cruel the world was to her. I had hoped for an insider's view of Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac.
Thankfully, I found and enjoyed reading another book about Fleetwood Mac. To gain a better insight to the band, I suggest reading "Making Rumours" by Ken Caillat and Steven Stiefel. This book is what I was looking for when I purchased Carol Ann's book, "Storms."
"Making Rumours" gave a detailed account of the people who created that amazing album. I appreciate that the author provided an honest portrayal of himself and others, even when it was not flattering. It made me feel as though I were getting the real story of Fleetwood Mac. It was humorous, entertaining and enlightening to see what the band and those behind the scenes went through. I highly recommend it.
"Storms" was an eye opener!
Lindsey Buckingham is still one of my favorite rock artists - but "Storms" was definitely an "eye opener".
I love the music of Fleetwood Mac and Lindsey Buckingham is clearly a genius. If you've ever heard "I'm So Afraid" played live in concert then you know exactly what I am talking about. The Buckingham Nicks album is one of my all time favorite rock albums.
"Storms" tells a story I never knew - it describes the genius and violence of this genuine "guitar hero". Carol Ann Harris is an amazing woman. I hope Lindsey Buckingham realizes how lucky he is for having loved her once - and I pray he is a better man today.
Great book.....loved every page
