Storms Book by Carol Ann Harris
 
Is it coincidental that LB will end his touring on June 30 and this book comes out on July1?

My Life with Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac

Illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, the parties, fights, drug use, shenanigans, and sex lives of Fleetwood Mac are presented in intimate detail. With the exception of one brief interview, Carol Ann Harris has never before spoken about her time with Fleetwood Mac.

Oh rats!! He won't be able to sign the odd copy on tour now.
Bet he'd be sorry to miss those. ;)
(would have made a nice change from all those OOTC and GI, BN Cd's and LPs, he probabaly signs)

I admit...I pre-ordered it from Amazon. (Inquiring minds want to know, and I am one of them.) :nod: Be it fact or fiction... :nod:

The ho part was a figure of speech I'll say that. But here is a person who is using SOMEONE ELSES fame for their own gain. I find that repulsive. Now haveing said that, it's just my opinion, and if other people find what she has to say interesting, so be it.:nod:

Here is a review I found in Publishers Weekly. Looks like it is quite a page turner

Storms: My Life with Lindsay Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac
Carol Ann Harris. Chicago Review, $24.95 (400p) ISBN 978-1-55652-660-2

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. (July)

Lovely.

This book is going to suck. Poor Lindsey.

It will suck, as whatever she says will go down as fact in FM history. (among some fans) No one will look at her motivations. The fact she would even write a book about LB is lame but it is pretty obvious that the more smut and sex she includes, the better it will sell. Pathetic and I won't buy it.

Lindsey never assaulted Carol. He was just spreading his intense genius in a manner more physically assertive than a stupid prole like Ms. Harris could ever understand. Duh. :rolleyes:

You do not want to get into a discussion with me about this, I promise you that.

Let Ms. Harris earn a few quick bucks and 15 minutes of fame. Whatever.

She is not the only one to allege LB is violent :shrug: Moreover, if she were saying whollly untrue things, LB's people and, likely more so, La Nicks' people or FM's people (they are still a major money maker touring wise) would have stopped the publication of those lies. So, I think that while she may stretch it here and there, the book is based in truth.

In the end though, no one really gives a rat's a$$ in the big popular culture picture about LB. So, IMO, the less attention drawn to this book the better as it likely will sell poorly beased on LB's relative complete lack of significant relevance in the pop culture world.

As for her writing the book - they were her experiences and are a commodity. So, I do not fault her for that.

You certainly realize that LB has exihibited violent behaviour before :shrug:

I just do not get why people are loathe to admit that. I like LB and think he is a genius. He also was a helluva nice guy when I met him. His temper to others does not take away from that :shrug:

Gimme a break. She was even more of a coke head than Stevie Nicks was, I doubt anything that comes out of her mouth is based on clear memories and objective reasoning. It's her right to share this with the world in order to make a few bucks? If people want to write biographies, that's fine by me, but don't do it solely to drag other people through the mud. Which is clearly the case here, because nobody even knows who the hell Carol Ann Harris is.

I don't even care if what she says is true or not, I am not arguing that here, I am just saying it's tacky.
