Thread Name: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
Subject: RE: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
For me it has been about encountering someone I missed back in the day.
During my youth in the US, I had no clue who Peter Green was. The first I heard of Peter Green was when I was reading an Eric Clapton interview in Melody Maker; then I quickly confirmed that Green had followed Clapton into John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. For years I listened to Fleetwood Mac on the radio, and had no idea that Peter Green was a founding member.
It was tremendous to hear Green's Fleetwood Mac songs for the first time, and frustrating to think how completely I missed him at the time.
