Rumours is not only super-group Fleetwood Mac’s best-selling albums but it is also one of the best-selling albums of all time. It boasts many Fleetwood Mac favourites such as ‘Dreams’, ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘The Chain’ amongst others. However, despite the uplifting feeling of many of the tunes, times were tough in the studio as all of the bandmembers were going through a relationship break-up, some of which were with one another. There is a reason the album has been hailed as Rock’s Greatest Soap Opera.
