Peter Green Passed Away

Recommended Posts

Just heard Peter Green has gone.  He was still hugely talented despite all the damage when I met and worked with him and the fabulous @mybass late 90s early 2000s. Died peacefully in his sleep aged 73.

Sad, but not surprised. When I saw him at the Union Chapel about 10 years ago he was then the same age that I am now, i.e. 63. I like to think that I can pass for mid-50s. Peter could have passed even then for mid-70s, barely able to stand up, quite unable to solo.

An enormous loss. I'll raise a glass to him this evening.

Yes, wasn't in the best of physical health when I worked with him.

Very sad to hear this. At his peak his playing was sublime and he was a very humble man.

RIP Peter.

One of the greats, for me. Playing, singing, tremendous songs too. And that tone.......

Very sad news.

In various bands Peter Green was a major part of the sound track to my youth.

He sadly wasn't a well man for a very long time. McVie always said he wasn't the same person after being spiked with LSD back in the 60s.

I saw him not long after he first resurfaced after being away a long long time. He was rusty and a little confused but could still deliver that distinctive tone. His rhythm section that night in a tiny club was Cozy Powell and Neil Murray. Slightly surreal.

RIP Man of the World.

A sad loss, although as noted above the real loss was a long time ago. Such a distinctive and influential sound. "Loved Another Woman" is one of our band standards and will be even more poignant now. RIP.

So sorry to hear this. His playing and his atmospheric instrumentals made me shiver. What a sound he had. RIP Peter.

Sad news.

I live a few roads away from him and he could often be seen walking about locally just down by the sea front. According to others, although he was a person of few words, he seemed to be happy and enjoying a quite life. Also, I believe some of his family and children live in the area as well, so he wasn't living a secluded life.

 

R.I.P

With any luck he'll be sitting down having a jam with Danny Kirwin right now.

With the first Fleetwood Mac bass player, Bob Brunning too.

When I heard this yesterday it really upset me and I didn't really know why !!, maybe because of the his musical life panned out, love his guitar playing, singing and songwriting, such a loss, been playing his early Fleetwood Mac stuff since I heard the news.

 

RIP Peter Green :(

That his guitar playing was superlative is pretty much a given.  But for me half the pleasure of listening to him was his voice.  He really seemed to have sadness oozing out of every pore when playing and singing.

One of my favourite songs to noodle over in a quiet moment is Peter Green's Need Your Love So Bad. I just find it one of the most relaxing tunes to play and listen too. Sad times RIP Mr Green.
