Peter Green, a most talented guitarist, who played with John Mayall, as a very worthy replacement for Clapton, and who founded Fleetwood Mac, has passed.

Before someone beats me to it, according the the Legend BB King:

"He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats."

Oh, and for all those who think Carlos Santana wrote, Black Magic Women . . . it was Mr. Green who composed the song.

Just saw that. We lost another great talent and contributor to the music we love.

RIP

Very sad, I still have a couple of his albums, "Back in the Day" and "In the Skies"...

I even saw Fleetwood Mac back in 1974, with the Climax Blues band, but he had already departed...

RIP, Mr. Greenbaum...

Jamming now with Jimi, Rory, Roy B., and Stevie...

You can read about his rather sad life here:

You know Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac recorded Black Magic Woman before Santana had a huge hit with it, and both of them played it together at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, pretty much playing the Santana version:

I put him up there with Rory Gallagher and Paul Kossoff as far as truly underrated guitar players from that era.

He always had that sweet, creamy Les Paul sound to go with an endless array of tasty blues licks.

RIP

What a loss, and the consensus here is that he was very underrated, and I totally agree.
His version of Freddie King's The Stumble on the Bluesbreakers album A Hard Road was amazing:

A ribbit or two:

In the UK, Fleetwood Mac had five top 5 songs, three written by Peter Green (Albatross their only #1) and two by Christine McVie. Like Roxy Music, and early Bowie, they were HUGE in the UK, while they were less appreciated in the US.

In the US, typically with a much more pop and bubblegum oriented market, they had five in the top 5: One by Nicks (Dreams their only #1 here), three by McVie, and one by Buckingham (Tusk by Buckinham just missing at #6).

Another note, Rhino will be releasing a box set of eight CD's (as well as a four LP vinyl one) titled Fleetwood Mac 1969-1974, that begins with Then Play On, on through to Heroes Are Hard to Find. It is unfortunate that the early LP's on Blue Horizon and other labels are not included as these contains all their early bluesy stuff.

I seem to be in a minority in that I like all incarnations of the band, less the brief period after Welch and before Buckingham and Nicks.
