Tributes pour out for Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green
The co-founder of Fleetwood Mac has died at the age of 73. His family have confirmed his death in a statement released by solicitors Swan Turton, who are acting on their behalf. “It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” the statement read. “A further statement will be provided in the coming days.”
The guitarist played in several bands after beginning to play professionally at the age of 15, including Bobby Dennis And The Dominoes, and The Muskrats. In 1965, he met the drummer Mick Fleetwood who he would go on to form Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac alongside guitarist Jeremy Spencer. John McVie later replaced Bob Brunning on bass and the band released their self-titled debut album in February 1968.
A number of tributes have come out from the likes of Sleaford Mods, The Coral & Johnny Marr. Above is a link to our favourite song he was involved in. Oh Well by Fleetwood Mac.
