one of the GREAT british guitarists, singers, and songwriters, the remarkable Peter Green went to sleep on July 25th and forgot to wake up. he was 73 years old.
everybody knows Fleetwood Mac. but not many know that the band was created by Green back in ’67, along with drummer mick FLEETWOOD and bassist john MACvie. and many of us don’t know that that first version of the Mac was EXTREMELY popular, at least in the UK. they were STARS, mainly because of Green, who was really good. the author of Black Magic Woman (yep, that’s a fleetwood mac song covered by santana) and a revered guitarist (none other than B.B. King once said Peter was the only guitarist who could give him chills), it’s obvious we need to pay tribute to his memory and legacy. ~BVD
