Peter Green
« on: October 14, 2013, 07:57:26 PM »
I think I have touched on the guitarist who just made me pick up the guitar and ten really want to play, and that was going to see Peter Green when Feetwood Mac  were still a Brit/blues band .
              It was at the Civic Hall Wolverhampton 1967/8, it really was and has been the best gigI have ever been to and that?s taking in some of the big Rock bands of the late 1960s/1970s I had the privilege of seeing.
                 I was totally mesmerized by his playing, it was the ease and relaxed way he seemed to push out his remarkable playing ...... Oh, and on the night he was playing a Fender Stratocaster

My older brother was seriously into the British blues scene and Fleetwood Mac could often be heard blasting out in out house when I was maybe ten or so!  Peter Green's sound must have wormed its way into my thoughts and when I first heard BB King live at Cooke county Jail I understood why BB quoted PG as being one of his favourites.

I saw one of his first gigs with the splinter group - he was cautious, but he'd still got it.

Great choice! :thumb:

Ps Peter Green and Mick Green made few (weird) recordings together.
I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

I thought I'd have a problem with Mr Greenbaum. He had the temerity to replace another of my heroes in The Bluesbreakers. However, as soon as "Hard Road" hit the turntable I knew that he was a worthy successor to Eric Clapton. A very different player, but every bit as good whilst different. I still defy anyone to listen to "The Supernatural" and not fall under its spell. :thumb:

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

Great choice Mr English. A sublime player - one of my all time favourites.
