He also produced the group's Tusk, Mirage, and Live albums, as well as their box set, The Chain. He has worked on albums with everyone from George Carlin, engineering his epochal Class Clown, to the London Symphony Orchestra. He is the father of Grammy-winning singer Colbie Caillat, and he produced her number one album, Breakthrough. Steven Stiefel has written several books, including contributions to two by LL Cool J. He also works as a magazine writer and editor. His fiction has appeared in the Georgia Review and McSweeney's.
'A compelling insider's account that should ensure you never again listen to Rumours in quite the same way.' (Q Magazine, February 2013)
