....at 73.....peacefully in his sleep....


Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green, blues guitarist and songwriter, dies at 73

Green, considered by some as one of the best British blues guitarists of the 1960s, also composed hit songs like "Albatross" and "Black Magic Woman."

....Peter Green, co-founder of rock band Fleetwood Mac, has died at age of 73, according to a law firm acting on behalf of his family.

"It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep," Swan Turton LLP, solicitors acting on behalf of his family, said in a statement.

The blues guitarist and singer-songwriter started the band alongside drummer Mick Fleetwood in London in 1967. He left the group a few years later, in the early 1970s, after struggling with mental illness.

Fleetwood told The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves the lion’s share of the credit for the band’s success.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout musician in an era of great guitarists.

Green was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, the co-founder added.

Green became an influential blues rock guitarist. Rolling Stone said he's considered one of the best 100 greatest guitarists ever.

He also made his mark as a composer, with “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.”



RIP..............?!

Sad. Saw the original (sort of) lineup in 1969 at The Marquee in London. A few years ago I was hoping to see him again as he was touring with John Mayall but the local to me concert was cancelled.

When I die, I want to go like my grandfather did;

peacefully, in his sleep.








Not screaming and panicked,

like the passengers in his car......... eye rolling smiley

Peter Allen Greenbaum was born in Bethnal Green, London, on 29 October 1946, into a Jewish family.
