UK Singer And Blues Guitarist Peter Green Dies At 73


News Of UK singer Peter Green Dies:


UK singer Peter Green and Blues guitarist Peter Green, the co-founder of the band Fleetwood Mac, has died at the age of 73.


Representatives of the agency Swan Turton released a statement from Green's family on Saturday, saying, "Peter Green's family has announced his death in peace in this sleep.


It is with great sadness. Another statement will be issued in the coming days." Green Fleetwood was known for its blues guitar sounds long before the Mac was formed.


He replaces Eric Clapton in John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers in 1965. 


Just a few years later, in 1967, Peter Green and co-Bluebreaker members formed the Fleetwood Mac with drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVee, guitarist Jeremy Spencer.


Mick Fleetwood released a statement on Saturday noting Green's fundamental place in the band's history.


Peter Green's direction was heard on the group's first albums, including his self-titled debut in 1968. He wrote the group's only No. 1 hit "Albatross" on the UK singles chart.


Peter Green was behind "Oh Well," "Man of the World," and "Black Magic Woman," the last of which Santana popularized with a cover version. Green left the band in the 1970s after green behaviour and drug use.


His behaviour was later identified as schizophrenia and he was hospitalized for some time. Peter Green returned to music in the late 70s and composed and recorded albums of his own.


In 1999, Peter Green was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with seven other members of the Fleetwood Mac.


In February, Mick Fleetwood hosted a tribute concert for Green in London before the coronavirus closed the large-scale rally, which featured a lineup of artists influenced by Green's work.


Fleetwood told Rolling Stone that he did the tribute concert together because "I wanted people to know I didn't make this band - Peter Green did.


And I wanted to celebrate the early years of Fleetwood Mac, where this huge ball started that started." Roads over the last 50 years ".
