KEN CAILLAT BOOK SIGNING BARNES AND NOBLE WESTLAKE- “MAKING RUMOURS”

Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorite albums of all time. I was very interested to hear Ken Caillat speak of his experiences with the album. I missed his appearance at the Grammy Museum, so I jumped at the chance to watch him speak locally. I got to Barnes and Noble in Westlake very early and had some coffee and did the WiFi thing for a bit before it was announced that they were seating for the event. I then settled in upstairs with my coffee and he showed up a few minutes later.

I am quite familiar with the album and know the general story behind it very well.  Once this album made Fleetwood Mac huge, a friend of my family worked for them (this was right around the Tusk album time, if I remember correctly) and told all kinds of interesting stories that I was way too young at the time to hear, but hey sure were interesting.

Ken is an impressive guy. He still has very good hearing- I could barely hear the questions being asked of him and he didn’t even seem to strain a bit in hearing and then responding to them. He also has a great memory and described in detail the unique situation he was in with recording this album and making one of the best records of all time. His daughter is a Grammy Award winning artist (Colbie Caillat- she’s extremely popular right now) and during his talk, he relayed the story where he encouraged her to take up a musical instrument in addition to her singing as a child. It was kind of fitting that this took place the day before Father’s Day.

The executive producer of Rumours was also on-hand for the event. 

He’s to the right of Ken in this picture:

And prior to the book signing with Ken, Martin Sheen was there signing books…..  He has that very distinguished voice.   I kind of browsed through the books for a minute just to hear him speak.     I then snagged a pic of him with a fan…..
