Peter Green

Peter Green (born Oct. 29, 1946) is an English blues-rock guitarist from Bethnal Green who served as Eric Clapton’s successor in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, recording one album with the band in 1967 before departing with bassist John McVie to co-found Fleetwood Mac that same year. The band recorded four proper albums and several standalone singles over the ensuing three-year period before Green’s departure in 1970. That same year, he issued his debut solo album on Reprise. After a pair of 1971/72 singles, he resigned from the music scene for a number of years, reemerging at decade’s end with In the Skies on PVK Records. Between 1980 and 1983, he released four albums on Creole Records, followed by a seventh with backing combo Katmandu in 1985.
