Fleetwood Mac Co-Founding Guitarist Peter Green Has Died (1946-2020)

Family Statement:
“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep.”

Speaking personally, my musical education on the works of Peter Green are very limited and quite honestly I know two of his most noted works from the bands that covered them and practically made them their own songs.

These are magnificent tunes and ones that should be rallied behind time and time again. In 1967 I can’t claim to listening to much Fleetwood Mac or any music unless it was a lullabye since I was two years old. I would get my education on the band from the “Rumors” album that my father owned and played as much as I played my KISS records. True story.
