Peter Green, one of the founders of Fleetwood Mac, died at 74. This was announced on Saturday, July 25, by the British portal Leeds Live with reference to the guitarist’s family lawyers.
” With great sadness Peter Green’s family reports that he died this weekend, it happened peacefully, in a dream,” – said in a statement.
The Fleetwood Mac, formed in London in 1967 by Green and drummer Mick Fleetwood, has changed not only the line-up, but also the musical style from blues rock to art pop. The guitarist himself left the band in 1970 due to mental health problems.
In 1988 Green entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together with seven other musicians of the band – Fleetwood, American singer Stevie Nicks, guitarist and vocalist Lindsay Buckingham, British bassist Johnny McVe, his ex-wife British singer and keyboardist Christine McVe, British guitarist Danny Kiruen, who died in 2018, and British guitarist Jeremy Spencer.
