RIP Peter Green - founder of Fleetwood Mac

Peter Green died at age 73 overnight.

Although he is often mentioned as a co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, he really was the motive force behind the band for the first few years. Without him, it's unlikely that there ever would have been a Fleetwood Mac. Listed in the Rolling Stones Top 100 Guitarists at #58, IIRC.

See him play Black Magic Woman with Santana here:

RIP to a great guitarist - The Green Manalishi is one of my personal favourites - I still get goosebumps listening to it (especially the live 1970 version, recorded at the Boston Tea Party):

Wow. Every time I learn about the death of an artist or popular figure from my youth, it hits me like a gut punch reminding me that youth is pretty far behind me. First time I recall being exposed to Fleetwood Mac was at Runway 66 in Mississauga watching one of the ladies "dance" to Tusk.
