One of England’s greatest blues guitarists, Peter Green was the founder of Fleetwood Mac. Considered an enigma as well as a brilliant musician. Green quit the band in 1970.
After a stint in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers Green quickly established his new band as a popular live act in addition to a successful recording act, before departing in 1970. Green’s songs, such as “Albatross”, “Black Magic Woman”, “Oh Well”, “The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)” and “Man of the World”, all appeared on the UK singles charts.
Written by Green’s close associate, this fourth edition of the biography first published in 1995 challenges the accepted narrative about why he left Fleetwood Mac and what happened next.
Revised and updated, the book also includes unseen photographs.
