    My wife loves the newer Fleetwood Mac, but I love the older version. Oh well.

    I love all of Fleetwood Mac, but Peter was the best guitarist and had the best voice. Hard to believe he was only with Fleetwood Mac for two years and nine months.

    fleetwood mac was a totally different band when mister green was a member. but of course there are several versions of the mac I do enjoy and greens is one and bob welchs is the other. I like the current version but I don't enjoy them as much.. see em about 2 times a year on avg now and the last crowd took a long time to leave bec we didnt have enough wheelchairs

    And that's the thing-was Pete faster or did he have better technique? Was his knowledge of music theory better? How do you explain it? I've tried to figure out why I like him better that anyone else from that era for 40 years. All I know is that he gets great tones, rarely overplays and manages to avoid most of the cliches.

    First time I heard this I thought that is what a Les Paul is supposed to sound like.

    A big part of his style is bending, volume and dynamic variation as opposed to running up and down the fretboard. He knew what to leave out and that makes his licks still sound fresh after all this time.

    And we haven't even mentioned what a great singer he was!
