Peter Green is a British blues rock guitarist and the founder of the band Fleetwood Mac. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 for his work with the group. Legendary blues guitarist BB King named Peter Green as one of the greatest exponents of the blues, and the ‘only guitar player to make me cold sweats’.
Guitar hero Peter Green founded Fleetwood Mac as a blues band in London in 1967. Peter Green is far from the lean, furry-faced rock star who fronted the original incarnation of Fleetwood Mac and wrote such insanely great blues-infused classics as “Black Magic Woman” and “Oh Well.”
He will always be remembered as one of the great Sixties musical talents cut off in his prime by drugs.
