Born in 1946 Peter Allen Greenbaum, made his mark with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers following in the footsteps of Eric Clapton. He quickly shifted up a gear from his days with Peter B's Looners and provided some incredible guitar work on the Hard Road album.
Soon becoming restless he took up with drummer Mick Fleetwood and slide guitar wizard Jeremy Spencer. Bob Brunning helped out on bass until John McVie became available, and so Fleetwood Mac hit the road.
Peter gave the rock/blues world some real highs and none other than the great BB King remarked about this amazing talent.
After the glory days Peter passed into a depressive state and dark days followed with the odd recording in various forms. However he reemerged in the 90's with The Splinter Group.
Peter Green is one of my favourite guitar players ever, the tone he had in the 60's is just the best.
