Share your love for one hell of a bluesman. Hes definitely a not so talked about bluesman, but if you ask me he has the magic touch.

A few days or weeks before his mind went out for lunch he did a few cosmic LSD trips. Probably has burned a few neurone connections.
Never heard of him trying to kill someone though.

There was a lot more about Peter Green than his touch.
It was his assurance and command as band leader and assertiveness in his singing and playing at such a young age (20-24 years old), qualities you'd find in a +40y BB King that floored everyone then.

BTW, thanks for putting up a thread about "Greeney".

deadlydunc - good deal on the re-wiring, sounds real good, ive heard other guys who did the same thing, and it sounds right on. enjoy that.

I have this LP in my vinyl collection "the original fleetwood mac" some of the tracks on that blow me away. Peter's take of BB's "worried dream" is a prime example.

Anybody ever catch the Splinter group live? Curious to see how peter is playing these days!

His old Fleetwood Mac stuff is pretty killer. I think my favourite Green song is "A Fool No More".. The Splinter Group isn't that great TBH.. It's basically Peter Green, 2 pro hired hands on drums and bass and then Peter's highschool friend playing guitar with him. His friend is nothing too amazing and PG's playing isn't what it used to be.

I will give it some credit in that his voice is even better now but apart from that I like his old stuff better.

I have a documentary thing I downloaded from soulseek about how they met up and PG started playing guitar again and they formed the Splinter Group but IMO it seems like he was really pushed into it.

Like his friend started him playing again, then his friend's sister is their manager and she speaks for him a lot of the time and seems really pushy towards him.

Still, great guitar player and bluesman.

i saw splinter group a few years back, the performance was sadly shambolic in the main but there were flashes that reminded me of how good he used to be. i saw him many times with john mayall and then the early fleetwood mac, he was a stunning player in those days, and an incredibly nice guy as well.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

excellent player, good singer, good songwriter
need some more of his albums though, all i have is Then Play On and The Early Years (a live collection with a lot of great songs. it's rather sweet) I mainly want the other Mac albums and Green's album with John Mayall, A Hard Road

ColdGin, you are awesome for posting those videos. THANK YOU!!!
