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.
