Peter Green RIP
« on: July 25, 2020, 17:07 »
Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green has died aged 73.

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

"A further statement will be provided in the coming days."

Blues rock guitarist Green, from Bethnal Green in east London, formed Fleetwood Mac with drummer Mick Fleetwood in 1967.

I can't say they were ever really on my wavelength, but some of the early stuff they did with him was very good.  I've never liked Stevie Nicks as a vocalist.

I remember DJs playing ĎAlbatrossí to death.  It put me off Fleetwood Mac for years but I like some of their hits now.

At one time it was Mrs Clive's favourite record but she denies that now.  ::)

I think Stevie Nicks is amazing with her range, just superb.  8-)
Fourth in the 2018 Quiz of the Year but at least I beat Clive.

Gotta say, I like Stevie Nicks gravelly voice too.
