    No! That is a huge loss - one of my very few heroes. Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac had a Tuesday residency at my local pub.

    Simlly the best of his generation.

    At their peak Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green outsold The Beatles and The Stones combined.

    And as someone else pointed out on the DT website which guitarist can't respect a guy who pointed a 12-gauge at his own accountant and accused him of ripping them off?

    It might be a controversial opinion, but in my eyes he was the greatest British guitarist of all time

    Maybe. Part of the problem, though, is that a great deal of the playing he was credited for was in fact played by Danny Kirwan. Between the two of them though, right up there.
