That's basically what's going on now: Everything is propaganda. ---->>>

Confounding people's expectations was a way to maintain integrity. ---->>>

When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow. ---->>>

I just find things that work and embellish them. ---->>>

Even though I had pushed through the Tango album, it was just not a very good environment to be in on a daily basis. In many ways, this is the best time of my life. ---->>>

This time, there were no drugs involved. The hours were completely normal daytime hours. I think we were able to appreciate the interplay, where before we had taken it for granted. ---->>>

When Stevie and I joined the band, we were in the midst of breaking up, as were John and Christine. By the time Rumours was being recorded, things got worse in terms of psychology and drug use. It was a large exercise in denial - in order for me to get work done. ---->>>

All of my style came from listening to records. ---->>>

Years on, Christine and John still have a deep love for each other, as do Stevie and I - we've been working together since I was 17. ---->>>

Another thing that was unique about working on this stuff was that I was engineering it. I used many of the things I had learned while I was away from the band. It sort of vindicated my decision to leave in '87. ---->>>

When I work alone, my process is like painting. With Fleetwood Mac, it's more like movie making. ---->>>

I didn't take lessons, and I don't know my scales. ---->>>

Ironically, that was quite a bit of the appeal of Rumours. It's equally interesting on a musical level and as a soap opera. ---->>>

After a couple of failed attempts, I came up with a weird tuning where I was dropping the G string down a step so that it became a seventh, and it got me to a place where I could play all these figures fairly easily. It was not an easy thing to work out. ---->>>

You know, I was never totally thrilled with being a Fleetwood Mac member, but surprisingly, I was having such a good time reuniting with John, Mick, and Stevie. ---->>>

It's really touching that we can come back after so long and care about making an album that says as much as this one does. And after all this time, we really do care about each other. ---->>>

Some days I would be there at ten in the morning and wouldn't leave till ten at night, and the others would waltz in for a couple of hours and then leave, because I was doing that painting thing. And they were happy to see that being done. ---->>>

That's one strength that Stevie has. She's really not a strong instrumentalist in any way. Her instrument is her voice and her words. And it keeps her focused on the very center of that. ---->>>

They tried to get me to use a pick when I first joined the band. They had certain things they thought were appropriate. I tried to adapt as much as I could. ---->>>

I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined. ---->>>

Those 12 years, they were ambiguous at best. ---->>>

I had to seal off my feelings about Stevie while seeing her every day and having to help her, too. But you get on with it. What was happening to the band was much bigger than any of that. ---->>>

The 12 years I was in Fleetwood Mac before were not particularly happy years. I was not in a very good place, psychologically, when I left. I didn't have a lot of confidence in what I was doing. ---->>>

The writing is all done, so it's all about verbalizing everything from point A to point B, and certainly there's a bit of politics involved, so it's a different thing. ---->>>
