Fleetwood Mac Co-Founder And Influential Blues Rock Guitarist Peter Green Has Died Aged 73.
“It is with immense sadness that the Peter Green family takes this time to make the public and fans aware of his peaceful death in his sleep” said Lawyers on behalf of his aggrieved family in a statement.
“Further details will be given in the few coming days.” Fleetwood was formed by Green, from Bethal Green in East London, together with drummer Mick Fleetwood in 1967. They came together after Green’s stint filling certain Eric Clapton in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. Green and Fleetwood then convinced John McVie to hitch the band as bass guitarist, partially by naming the band Fleetwood Mac.
He wrote the instantly recognisable instrumental track Albatross, which remains the band’s only favorite hit, plus two other early hits, sorcery Woman and Oh Well. And it had been under Green’s direction that they produced their first three albums. The band’s debut album was released in 1968. Simply called Fleetwood Mac, but also referred to as Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, it gained widespread acclaim and reached number four within the charts. Green left the band after a final performance in 1970 as he struggled together with his psychological state.
Peter Green spent time in hospital in the middle of 70s after he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.
He married Jane Samuels in January 1978. They divorced in 1979 and share a daughter. The eight members band consisted of Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Steve Nicks and Fleetwood – in 1998 all of them were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The news of his death comes days after Fleetwood Mac announced they might release a retrospective box set documenting the band’s early years between 1969 and 1974. Musicians have led tributes to Green.
“An artist I truly adored and idolized” said the lead singer of Whitesnake, David Coverdale. He further tweeted to say: “Peter Green was an all-encompassing singer, composer and guitarist. I helped by supporting the first Fleetwood Mac at Redcar Jazz Club. I know who i will be able to be taking note of today. RIP”
A tweet tweeted by Mumford and Sons guitarist Winston Marshall reads as follows “RIP Peter Green. Some of my beloved tracks by Peter Green were oh well , albatross , need your love so bad , and man of the planet. What a great performance of all time.”
In one of the tweets tweeted by Scottish artist Midge Ure : “ one of the great musicians is gone. You trained me well”. Actor David Morrissey expressed his gratitude for Peter Green music and praised him for his wonderful voice.

He suffered two heart attacks today and could not be saved. He was admitted to hospital on Sunday, after testing positive for COVID-19. He had 60% pneumonia” reads the tweet. He had taken to Twitter Tuesday morning to share the news of being Covid-19 positive.
He had further added that he was admitted in the hospital and concluded with a request to not speculate and wait for him to provide update regarding his health. Earlier this year, the poet’s words had transformed into a rallying cry as anti-CAA protests erupted across the country. The line, “Kisi ke baap ka Hindustan thodi hai”, taken from ghazal ‘Agar khilaaf hain hone do” gave a voice and purpose to dissent.
“I wrote this ghazal some 30-35 years ago, though I don’t remember the precise year or the context during which it had been written.I have recited this ghazal at many mushaiaras and had even forgotten about it, but I don’t know what’s happened within the last three to four years that like a crop spring up again, these very words have spring up again.Now, wherever I go , people ask me to recite this however it’s unfortunate that it’s often taken as a sher by a Muslim. Yeh kisi ek mazhab ka sher nahi hai (these lines aren’t for any particular religion). They are for everyone,”
he had said while speaking to The Indian Express last year.
