Subject: RE: PETER GREEN at Hull City Hall
To add to alanabit's excellent resume, Peter was talked back into going on the road and recording by friend Nigel Watson and they formed the current excellent Peter Green Splinter Group who have now released about 5 albums (I have all of them) including an acoustic album of Robert Johnson songs (more about him on Mudcat's front page!) which an old musician mate of mine, Brian Bull, gets a slot on. I am one of those Mudcat fans of the original Fleetwood Mac band alanabit talked about and saw them live several times and have a couple of vinyl albums from that period.
When I helped run a session in Richmond, SW London from the late 70s till the beginning of the 90s, Peter was a regular listener (he lived just a few yards away) and I remember a few interesting chats with him. This was during his non-playing reclusive phase.
The Californian version of FM with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks was a very different band indeed as alanabit describes although not bad at all in their own genre. If my memory serves me right, Christine Perfect was also in the later incarnations of the original FM.
You've started something here now jOhn I hope you realise!
