From Back Cover:
"...an up-close-and-personal look...this documentary is one of the most honest ever on the business of rock 'n' roll." - NY Post
"...a remarkable special...the clash and sythesis between commercial and artistic impulses...a squirmily raw look t the inner life of a rock group." - Entertainment Weekly
Fleetwood Mac: Destiny Rules captures the ups and downs of this legendary band and proves that time doesn't always heal all wounds.
Starting in the fall of 2001, filmmakers Matt Baumann and Kyle Einhorn follow Fleetwood Mac's every move as they reunite to record their first new studio album in 15 years.. Cameras, including a few hidden ones, rolled almost non-stop for a year and a half.
Culled from over 500 hours of footage, this documentary follows the band members as they record SAY YOU WILL and prepare for a world tour. From Stevie Nicks's first day in the studio until the band walks onstage, you are a fly-on-the-wall to the 30 year saga that is Fleetwood Mac.
You really have to be hard-core into Fleetwood Mac to have any appreciation for this sort of "making of" documentary - featuring plenty of fighting, whining and shit talking from all involved.
