Peter Green is widely regarded as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. His virtuoso blues playing was an integral part of the sound of the original Fleetwood Mac, which he founded in 1967, and his tortured lead placed him on a par with legends such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. In the early '70s Green left the band and spent much of the next three decades in the wilderness, battling a number of health issues. He re-emerged in the late-90s performing with the Peter Green Splinter Group, and the second album of his remarkable revival, The Robert Johnson Songbook, was the first British album to win the prestigious WC Handy Award. It features 16 exquisitely heart-breaking performances of the best Johnson originals, with Green on lead guitar, harmonica and vocals, plus support from Nigel Watson, Roger Cotton, Larry Tolfree, Neil Murray and guest Paul Rodgers.
