Peter Green RIP. 1946-2020

Post by Everso Biggyballies » 8 months ago

Sad to read that Peter Green, one of the founders of Fleetwood Mack has passed away peacefully aged 73.
A huge talent.... I remember the first time I heard Albatross. Very different at the time.

RIP Peter Green.
Fleetwood Mac co-founder and influential blues rock guitarist Peter Green has died aged 73.

Solicitors acting on behalf of his family said in a statement: "It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep.

"A further statement will be provided in the coming days."

Green, from Bethnal Green in east London, formed Fleetwood Mac with drummer Mick Fleetwood in 1967.

They formed the group after Green's stint in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, where he filled in for Eric Clapton.

Green and Fleetwood convinced John McVie to join the band as bass guitarist, in part by naming the band Fleetwood Mac.

Under Green's direction, they produced three albums and a series of well-loved tracks including Albatross, Black Magic Woman and Oh Well.

Green left the band after a last performance in 1970, as he struggled with his mental health. He was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia and spent time in hospital in the mid-70s.

Here are three of the best of early Fleetwood Mac that bear his influence.. There are many more.

Saw this too late to be able to determine whether the bottom [YT] video posted by you, was in fact this:



I think that was his masterpiece.
If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

Im sure it would have been...I cant imagine I would have done a Mac related Green tribute without it as it was a big fave of mine back in the day.... I was a bit of a two pronged crown man. :mrgreen: :wink:

Thanks for reposting it. :thumbsup:

From the iconic "Garbage Can" album.

Made me remember this random funny thing from somewhere back in this topic. Didn't bother look it up.

"I've got a gal, and she's not on the pill,

I've got a gal, and she's not on the pill...

I said I wanna love her,

but I don't believe she will..." :haha:

Old nonsense, but long live Peter Green and Elmore James.
