Description

A consummate insider as the girlfriend of Lindsey Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac singer and guitarist, Carol Ann Harris leads fans into the very heart of the band’s storms between 1976 and 1984. From interactions between the band and other stars—Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, and Dennis Wilson—to the chaotic animosity between band members, this memoir combines the sensational account of some of the world’s most famous musicians with a thrilling love story. The parties, fights, drug use, shenanigans, and sex lives of Fleetwood Mac are presented in intimate detail and illustrated with never-before-seen photographs. With the exception of one brief interview, Carol Ann Harris has never before spoken about her time with Fleetwood Mac. 

Publishers Weekly Review

May 07, 2007 – This is a fascinating if overlong look at the megasuccess of Fleetwood Mac in the mid-1970s, after the former British blues band recorded the laid-back rock songs of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and singer Stevie Nicks that made the album Rumours one of the most popular of its era. While working at the band's recording studio, Harris, currently a music business costume designer, became Buckingham's girlfriend and constant companion from 1976 through 1984, and she gives a detailed look—more so than drummer and original member Mick Fleetwood's biography—at this already well-chronicled story of how the success of Rumours provided the income for extravagant cocaine-fueled excesses before, during and after performances. Harris too often uses clichés, such as her view of the band's “beautiful insanity.” But she does candidly recount Buckingham's rage and his repeated physical assaults on her. Along the way, she offers great descriptions of the band's recording sessions, especially her account of Buckingham's desire to “create something new, something completely” different for Tusk, the more experimental (and less profitable) follow-up to Rumours.

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.

Loved It!!!!!
