Regardless of your age, you’ve no doubt heard much of Rumors over the years, the great Fleetwood Mac album from 70s. The songs from that record are still heard everywhere today, and a tribute to the contributions to the project (as well as 3 others by Fleetwood Mac) by my guest on this week’s podcast – producer/engineer Ken Caillat.
Ken has a long list superstar credits including The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Pat Benetar, Herbie Hancock and many more. He’s also the father and producer of singer/songwriter Colby Caillat.
During the interview we talk about how he first connected with Fleetwood Mac, the recording of Rumors (including an interesting tape loop story), as well as what it’s like to produce your daughter.
In the intro I’ll take a look at how EDM has peaked and its popularity is slowing, and the implications of SoundCloud’s new Go paid tier.
