On February 25 2020 the friends of Peter Green gathered to honor the legendary Fleetwood Mac guitarist. 

The February show would become the last great nod to Peter Green. The show featured Neil FinnNoel GallagherBilly GibbonsDavid GilmourKirk HammettJohn MayallChristine McVieJeremy SpencerZak StarkeyPete TownshendSteven Tyler and Bill Wyman

Legendary producer Glyn Johns joined as the executive sound producer and the house band featured Mick Fleetwood along with Dave BronzeJonny LangAndy Fairweather LowRicky Peterson and Rick Vito.

The show happened just in time, just days before the first Covid case in the UK.

Peter Green was a founding member of Fleetwood Mac and the main songwriter in the day. His songs included ‘Black Magic Woman’ (a hit later for Santana), ‘Albatross’ and ‘Oh Well’. 

Green had been a member of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers but left in 1967 to start his own band. He took along fellow Bluesbreakers Mick Fleetwood and Jeremy Spencer and initially called the band Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac featuring Jeremy Spencer. Just months after forming this new band original bass player Bob Brunning left and was replaced by John McVie. 

Green left Fleetwood Mac after his final performance with the band on 20 May 1970.

It was just a few years later when Peter Green was diagnosed with schizophrenia and underwent therapy. In 1979 he returned to music with a solo album, a guest appearance on Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Tusk’ and a contribution to Mick Fleetwood’s solo album ‘The Visitor’. 

Green died on 25 July 2020.

Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac will be released on 30 April 2021.

Available as a deluxe 44 page hardbound bookpack, which includes :
Sleevenotes by Anthony Bozza in conjunction with Mick Fleetwood.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
