Farewell Peter Green(baum)
« on: July 25, 2020, 02:04:10 PM »
Blues legend Peter Green has passed away peacefully at the age of 73 ,it was just announced .
I got the chance to see him live twice , once with Splinter Group and in more recent years a solo gig ,
on both occasions I got the chance to meet the man himself and shake hands.
He really wasnt right for many years due to being heavily medicated , in more times years he had made a return to form though , I feel priviledged to have seen him playing his own material after he got his mojo back .

I was so sad to read the news, I absolutely love his work in the early Fleetwood Mac years - always felt his playing had a deep lyrical beauty to it. And what a songwriter! I was also lucky enough to see him play, at a festival on the Isle of Wight about a decade ago, hearing "Albatross" in person really was something else.

Rest in peace.

Sad news to hear, RIP Peter Green, a player of great touch. However, I am glad to hear that he kept playing and got some mojo back. I had always believed that he had drifted off into the never never like Syd Barrett.

Yeah, an excellent and very touching programme that is. I think it was also called "Man Of The World".

 RIP

However, I am glad to hear that he kept playing and got some mojo back.

I saw him play at a  very small blues festival in the UK about twenty years ago.  He didn't seem like he was in a great place to be honest, so it's good to hear that he got back some of the old spirit since then.

I saw him once in the second half of the 60s at a local blues club. Once seen never forgotten. RIP.

Cheers

Peter Green was second only to Clapton in my opinion and he had a beautiful style where every note had to mean something rather than how fast he played the notes,  A wonderful blues guitarist.

One of the greats.  Very special writer and blues player.  Those early Fleetwood Mac albums are some of the best British Blues Rock of the era.   I never got to see him live.  I use to dream of going to London and seeing him play in a pub.   RIP Peter so many great songs.

Those records and extant film and TV appearances are so great, as is the documentary.  RIP. 
Best,
