How Fleetwood Mac wrote 'The Chain'

So it was my job to sit with her and cut them down to three or four minutes. And there were tears: And I loved the name. With vinyl only able to hold approximately 22 minutes per side, edits were a practical necessity. By the time the sessions wrapped in late , Caillat faced a problem of mathematics and aesthetics. We were concerned that we might have too slow an album. Buckingham finally broke the news when it was time to record the vocals. This new version earned the band a Grammy, and earned Nicks some serious gratification.

So for it to come back around like this has really been, really special to me.

While humor played a major role in the unorthodox sartorial choice, Fleetwood felt it was an appropriate nod to his musical lineage. The whole ethic of a lot of blues music is slightly suggestive, might I say. And suitably, I walked out on stage with these two lavatory chains with these wooden balls hanging down, and after that it just stuck. This was not his only tribute to virility. Fleetwood went through a lengthy period of placing a dildo on top of his bass drum. Sadly, the original set were lost on the road, but he makes due with a replica.

The band considered thanking their coke dealer on the album credits. Fleetwood famously worked out that if he laid all of the cocaine he had ever snorted into a single line, it was stretch for seven miles.

Coke was less of a pleasure and more of a necessity, helping combat fatigue during the grueling multi-hour sessions — and tortuous emotions. Cocaine played such a major role in the production of Rumours that the band seriously considered thanking their drug dealer in the album credits, until gangland violence apparently put a premature end to the idea. My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac. Annie Leibovitz, already a bona fide rock-photography icon, played the role of the conscientious host when the quintet arrived at her studio for the shoot. I took it out, and they looked a little freaked out at first, but then consumed it in, like, 30 seconds.

So they were all a little jittery and tense. Nicks ended up putting her foot down.

Although they attempted to keep a respectful distance, the session sparked a brief romantic reunion between Nicks and Buckingham. And we lay there for about two hours talking and making out. Finally, Annie had to tell us to leave, because she had rented the room for only so long. Perhaps more surprising, the hours Nicks spent snuggling with Fleetwood made a deep impression on them both.

The relationship was not to last, but Fleetwood carries something of a torch for his bandmate. I will take my love for her as a person to my grave, because Stevie Nicks is the kind of woman who inspires that devotion. Newswire Powered by. Close the menu.

My Interpretation I feel this song is more about a relationship or friendship on the verge of collapse and someone's attempts to stop it as opposed to a hateful goodbye. Things are going bad and they tell their partner that they must work to keep their bond. I think the end lines are actually " Chains keep us together, running through the shadows" the shadows are dark times when they are running blindly through struggles, the chain may be oppressive but they need each other.

They've argued "listen to the wind blow" and are tired of it but the chorus reminds them that this could be the end so keep this anger smothered. They may be at odds but they know that the chain keeping them together is important. Persevere and they may rebuild their relationship or friendship back to its former glory.

Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’: 10 Things You Didn’t Know

Woke up today with my brain riding one of the storms - some synaptic movement played me this song. I'm in this exact situation - just had the comforting epiphany I'm perpetually linking 'the chain' with this man - tired by going in circles - but getting a little further down the road every time round - we always have the potential to get somewhere. It's some sort of madness I can't deny but I would rather have it than not.

The man is damn beautiful. I came looking for this interpretation. My confirmation bias centres are all shiny: I don't think it's a "complicated" song in terms of lyrics - though the song itself was spliced together from 2 possibly 3 different songs! But that's the great strength of 'Rumours' and the songs nearby it. So much they were able to 'outlet' through their song s , and so much feeling.

General Comment The way this song came about is pretty interesting. John McVie had created the famous bass line which you hear the second half of the song.

But that was all they had. Stevie Nicks added the lyrics, which she had written while she and Lyndsey Buckingham performed together before they came to Fleetwood Mac. From there, everybody contributed.
