When most people hear the name Fleetwood Mac, they tend to think of the vocals of Stevie Nicks, and the guitar of Lindsay Buckingham. And the songs from the album ‘Rumours’, one of the best-selling records of all-time.
But I think of Peter Green, and Fleetwood Mac as primarily a Blues band, formed in 1967. In 1969, they released a song that I thought was outstanding, even though it wasn’t in a genre that I would have usually listened to at the time. Peter Green left the band in 1970, suffering from serious mental illness. He did return to the music scene at various times in later life, and died in 2020, aged 73.
