Fleetwood Mac

some band info might not apply to Peter Green,
a member from 1967 thru 1970

Although Fleetwood Mac is today recognized as one of the most successful pop/rock bands in contemporary music - selling more than 70 million albums worldwide - they originally began as a strict blues outfit. Guitarist Peter Green, bassist John McVie, and drummer Mick Fleetwood were all alumni of Englishman John Mayall's Bluesbreakers when they first appeared on August 12, 1967, as Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac at the British National Jazz & Blues Festival. Jeremy Spencer added his Elmore James-flavored licks to the band which “in that early incarnation, evolved into a fantastic blues band - sharp-edged without rawness, steady in the Chicago blues mold, impressive and direct,” according to The Guitar: The Music, The History, The Players. ~ Musicianguide: Fleetwood Mac ~ retrieved October 23, 2013 © Musicianguide
