    Yep. Anyone who wants to dismiss Lindsay as a pretty face and a pretty voice needs to try and learn "Big Love" or "Never Goin' Back Again."

    Another Green gusher here.

    Case in point the instrumental "Greeny", sounds very simple but Green's tone and melodic phrasing really turns the corner.

    Also a member of the Clapton, Green, Taylor triumvirate.

    Least fav is the "For Your Love" bit and the pop monster just too overexposed for me to ever listen again.

    Buckingham is certainly one of my favorite guitarists. I love his playing.

    Mark down the date, place, and time: I find myself in full agreement with a 2HB post.

    Isn't "For Your Love" a Yardbirds song?

    To me, the following clips represent EXACTLY what this band was about.....
    Live in Boston 1970....
    I wish the name "Fleetwood Mac" was changed to anything else after this....

    I'd do the same as you, brother, except I think he ignores me :(

    If I am remembering correctly the Bob Welsh led version was the FM which had a hit with it. That version was solid musically but beginning the move to pop.

    Yep, here you go. Christine Perfect (later McVie) in there too. I heard her band Chicken Shack open for Steve Miller in early seventies.

    I was a fan early on, so the original is the real Fleetwood Mac to me, although I've pretty much liked everything with John McVie and Mick Fleetwood in the band. I didn't like the Buckingham/Nicks version for a long time, but that has changed with time.

    Me too. I just want to pay homage to someone whose music and attitude I really loved.

    I feel like such a dumbass. I almost bought tickets to see him a few months back and then passed because i thought he'd definitely be back again in a year or 2.

    I have probably listened to Rumours more than any album, ever. It was a favorite of my parents, and mine as well.

    I love a lot of the Jeremy Spencer stuff. And quite a bit of the Danny Kirwan stuff. But when Peter Green is at his best, he is in a class with few members, IMO. I don't care if people think its not technically hard to play. His tone and phrasing is just so damn good.

    No doubt. I like both versions of the band, though very different. Rumors was 70's pop at its best, with plenty of fine guitar work.

    He has that undefinable quality in his playing that can make you feel. Well at least he does to me.

    Like it all but for me the Kirwan and Welch era(s) are my fave. Mystery To Me is a damn fine album.

    I'm not a "fan" of any of their iterations but one thing I know and respect is FM has been filled with superior talent and ability throughout the decades since they started in the 60's. The closest I come to liking their music is Judas Priest's version of Green Manilishi. Doesn't mean they weren't an awesome band just not my cup of tea.

    I can't believe people like the Peter Green era. Boring blooze wankery. I'm glad they rarely play it on any station, digital or otherwise.

    Not how I would describe some of the greatest electric blues playing of all time . . .
