Another " great " has sadly passed away.

News is only just breaking so not much info at present.

Green was a truly great guitar player who influenced many others.

Here is just a small sample of his work.

R.I.P.

He truly was a inspaertion for other guitarist to bad he went off the deepend along with Jeremy Spencer. The 2nd manifestation of the band was a mirror shadow of the original. Should of been named Fleetwood Crap. Greens iconic 59
Gibson was bought and played by Scotty Moore then by Kirk Hammett of Metallica, To bad that Eric Clapton traded in his Gibson which he liked the tone because of Greens Gibson which had the picups wired backwards for a Fender for his woman tone the Gibson Les Pauls had balls just listen to the Beno album where his Fender didn't when he joined cream to thin in tone. IMHO. Jimmy Pages Gibson was the iconic sound of Led Zeppelin.

Magical music…

BB King famously said of Peter Green "He's the only white guy to ever make me sweat."
Same song a little older

I loved Peter Green and the original Fleetwood Mac. So many people don’t realize all the great music they made during the Peter Green era.

The original Fleetwood Mac did make great music.

Here is one of my fave Peter Green compositions which was later covered by Santana.

There was a gap in the action with Mayall's Bluesbreakers, when
Clapton took four dates off for a Greek holiday. Peter filled in--
and when Eric left for good, Peter took the guitar spot.

There was an insider I read from just today that mentioned Green
(right after Clapton left) to a reporter... including "he's even better."
Met with gobsmackage , "Better? Better than Clapton??"

"Not quite yet, but..." I believe it took only those four fill-in dates of
what was reported as incendiary level performance for the local fans to
begin calling him 'the Green God'.
And with that, I'm back to lurking and mourning the End of the Game.
To one of a handful of the greatest British Blues men ever, RIP Peter.
PS fastest damned tremolo I've ever heard from a wiggle-stickless Paul.

Today on Kjazz (onine) Phat Tracks with Gordon Goodwin did a bit of a tribune today (7/25/20). It will be in the archive for two week.

RIP

Supernatural is such a haunting song, he definitely had his demons

"The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Prong Crown)

Now, when the day goes to sleep
And the full moon looks
The night is so black that the darkness cooks

Don't you come creepin' around
Makin' me do things I don't wanna do
Can't believe that you need my love so bad

Come sneakin' around tryin' to drive me mad
Bustin' in on my dreams
Makin' me see things I don't wanna see

'Cause you're da Green Manalishi
With the two prong crown
All my tryin' is up all your bringin' is down

Just takin' my love then slippin' away
Leavin' me here just tryin' to keep from followin' you

Blues players often mention him as one of their influences. Green didn't want to be a "star" and wanted to give all his money away, and suggested the rest of the band do that as well. But from the interviews I've read it sounds like Green just wanted out. Nevertheless he left a huge impact on guitar players for decades.

He was a rock & roll pioneer. An absolutely fantastic player. I still have this 45 vinyl.
It was Green and Fleetwood Mac recording under the name Earl Vince And The Valiants.
His solo on this is killer
