Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green passes away
Washington: Noted guitarist and co founder of Fleetwood Mac — Peter green — passed away “peacefully in his sleep”. He was 73.
“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep. A further statement will be provided in the coming days”, Peter’s family said in a statement.
Green, from Bethnal Green in east London, formed Fleetwood Mac with drummer Mick Fleetwood in 1967.
They came together after Green’s stint filling in for Eric Clapton in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. Green and Fleetwood then convinced John McVie to join the band as bass guitarist, in part by naming the band Fleetwood Mac.
