    I'd be very surprised if there are many people on this forum who aren't familiar with Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Guy's a legend.

    What rhythm section could’ve slayed on all those different eras and styles. And Werewolves of London! Fleetwood and McVie are the backbone that kept it all together through all that diversity. Incredible really.

    Cheers,

    Starting in about 1969, Clapton was king in my childhood home, until one day in 1974 my Dad brought home a British blues anthology that had this song:

    I absolutely love Greeny's playing. And I've tried to analyze it but the only thing I can come up with is that he plays the right notes at the right time (with killer tone). At the two minute mark....whew!



    Peter has that BB King thing going on...but on steroids.



    And they were often better live than on their albums.

    John Mcvie and Mick Fleetwood were fired from John Mayall , and Peter Green quit to join them with Jeremy Spencer

    Fleetwood Mac are an English-American rock band, originally formed in London. After leaving John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, guitarist and vocalist Peter Green and drummer Mick Fleetwood formed Fleetwood Mac in July 1967 with slide guitarist Jeremy Spencer and bassist Bob Brunning, the latter of whom was soon replaced by John McVie – Green and Fleetwood's original choice for the role – in September.[1][2] Danny Kirwan was added as a third guitarist following the release of Mr. Wonderful in August 1968.[3] Green suddenly left the band in 1970 due to problems with drug abuse and mental health issues, playing his last show with the band on 20 May.[3][4] McVie's wife Christine – who had collaborated with the band multiple times – joined on keyboards and vocals shortly after Green's departure, officially becoming a member in August.[5]

    The first I ever heard of them was the song Albatross on an old Solid Gold Hits record. Then I heard Oh Well, and thought it was totally bad a$$ at the time. Then the saturation of the Buckingham/Nicks era kicked in. I did like it, and FM was my first ever concert - thought Lindsay was so cool - loved his weird looking guitar and remember him rolling around on the stage, legs kicking in the air playing the hell out of that thing. Was the first time I heard I’m So Afraid as well - thought that was epic!

    Anyways, they did a fantastic rendition of Oh Well, so after that concert I delved back not their past catalogue (particularly with Green), and loved every bit of it.

    Guitar music rulez!! :cool::cool:

    Danny Kirwan and Bob Welsch phase is my current favorite iteration of the band.

    That's the Bob Welch era, which I liked a lot.

    Yes, normally I can. But something weird is happening atm, and editing posts for me is one of them. I noticed it a few days ago when I wanted to edit another post. Not sure what’s wrong. Incidentally, I generally do all my stuff on here on the iPad.

    What an amazingly brilliant, consistently interesting, and incredibly resilient “brand”.
    FM rolls with the punches, and keeps on keepin’ on.
    Thry never had a bad era.
    Love em’!

    through all of the incarnations , there have been some monumentous writters in that band great matterial well exicuted and recorded and even though some matterial may seem dated now, they were always apprpriate for the relase time of the music, no matter what era it was done.

    A guitar buddy of mine gave me a 5 disc FM set for Christmas that goes from Then Play On ( with Peter, Jeremy, Danny K, this one I have owned for years) to Mystery To Me ( Bob Welch/Danny)
    and I am really digging Kiln House and Bare Trees
    These guys really came up with some creative pop rock, melodic!

    " Station Man" is almost like Little Feat meets Exile on Main Street- badass song!
    * according to Wikipedia, Christine Perfect/ McVie played or sang on EVERY FM album ( uncredited at times) except the 1st! She's the secret weapon , very solid keys, and beautiful voice

    Got Rumours right when it came out - love that album. Later on got their first album - great blues album. Some serious talent in that band from 1968 to present day.

    Ive posted this before, I believe. I saw FM @the Boston Tea Party (next to Fenway Park ) in late Dec.1969 with Green,Spencer and Kirwan ,they were the headliners..Joe Cocker &Grease Band were the openers..each band alternated 2 sets, I believe there was a live album made from those shows , they played there a few times..I remember FM encored with Twist & Shout . Green was playing the famous '59 LP (didn't know it at the time, the guitar was only 10 years old) and Spencer was playing a Flying V, I believe ...I went with my late brother, it was a great show.
