    Default R.I.P. Peter Green

    Just read about the sad death of Peter Green, original co-founder of Fleetwood Mac.
    Only 73, but after a inspirational start with the band became a bit of a recluse.
    I saw him perform in Edinburgh with his Splinter Group and none of the magic had gone!
    RIP Peter, you gave us much pleasure.

    OMG what a sad loss! I saw the original Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac a couple of times in the late '60s, and always thought Green had a better understanding and 'feel' for the Blues than most of his contemporaries.

    After frying out his brain in Germany with a powerful psychedelic 'cocktail', he wasn't the same afterwards - being on an even stranger mixture of prescription drugs, which caused him to become a recluse incapable of even playing his guitar. However he was pursuaded to stop taking them, and recovered sufficiently to start playing and touring again as The Splinter Group. And what a wonderful 'come back' that was!

    Yes, Peter Green gave so many of us much pleasure. Rest in Peace Peter.
