    Somebody posted a link to this a few years ago, and it was soon taken down. I have to admit I knew little about Peter Green. After watching this documentary I wondered how it was that I went this long without knowing about him.

    This is a great watch - enjoy!

    There are a lot of musicians who fell by the wayside over the years.
    Chances are you don't know who Danny Kirwin is as well...............

    Just think. If Peter didn't fall off the bus, we may never have heard Stevie & Lindsay!
    Peter was a major contender. He's be playing crossroads festivals and made a lot of beautiful music. To bad Peter Jimi ,Janis, and Jim couldn't have made music together.

    It was really depressing at the end.

    Not just Mr Buckingham. There are quite a few other musicians that were part of the ever moving wax in the lava lamp known as "Fleetwood Mac".
    We would likely never have heard of Bob Welch, for example.
    And we would never have had the fantastic FM album that has Bonnie Bramletts daughter and Dave Mason on it.
    There is a hell of a lot more to FM than just Peter Green and Rumours.

    Fleetwood Mac was a completely different band with Peter Green. Sure they had the same rhythm section (Mick Fleetwood/John McVie), but the original band was an outgrowth of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. During this period (before mental illness took hold) Peter had the finest touch of any British Blues Guitarist IMHO. This includes Clapton and Taylor boith of who I consider to be absolute masters of the genre. Peter Green was really something special...

    Check out "Hot Foot Powder" (2001 IIRC).
    It's a collection of Robert Johnson songs by Peter with Buddy Guy & David Honeyboy Edwards among others.
    It's been in my car's CD Player since August.

    It's that good.

    I still remember very clearly standing in a friend's lounge and hearing "The Supernatural" for the first time. We were all excited about John Mayall's new album and hearing the guy who replaced Clapton. That particular track made my hair stand on end. Greenie was simply one of the finest of that time. B.B. King rated him as the best of the young Brit blues guys.

    Yes, he said Green was the only one that "made him sweat a little." :)

    His touch and tone really stand out to this day. FM's "Then Play On" remains one of my top ten to this day.

    I pulled out the vinyl of "Then Play On" last night. Unfortunately it is scratched to pieces and unlistenable. Guess I'm on the hunt for a new copy.
