Green, like Clapton, only recorded one album with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, “A Hard Road”, which didn’t achieve the legendary status of Clapton’s album but is still something of a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.Peter Green didn’t want to be just a hired guitarist, he wanted his own band. Yes…one thing that not everyone seems to know, is that Fleetwood Mac, one of the biggest “Middle-Of-the-Road” bands of the 70s was originally not only a cutting-edge blues rock band, but also to Peter Green, and was initially called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, eventually shortened to Fleetwood Mac.
Back then, when Jimmy Page was barely out of his session musician days and first achieving fame with the soon-to-be-over Yardbirds, Peter Green was the ace, ripping heavy blues player in London, adored by his fans, who saw in Feetwood Mac a band that was more edgy and faithful to the blues than bigger names such as The Rolling Stones.
Then again, Fleetwood Mac were never exactly a conventional band…
By immersing himself in classical music, African music and jazz, Green was deliberately attempting to distance himself from the blues.
One day, in the late 60s, a weekly music paper coined the term “guitar hero” and, amongst the handful of players deemed worthy the accolade (Hendrix, Clapton, Page…) there was Peter Green, who never achieved the same level of fame of those other guitarists…Peter Green and his Les Paul " data-medium-file="https://guitarplayer.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/58peter.jpg?

Not to say that back then Fleetwood Mac weren’t successful – their self-titled debut album was a huge success in the UK and reached #4 in the charts.
It also featured hit single “Black Magic Woman”, written by Green.In fact, in July 1969 Fleetwood Mac were the headliners of a festival in Central Park, New York, playing above Chuck Berry, The Byrds and Led Zeppelin!Even The Beatles wanted a piece of Fleetwood Mac, and invited them to sign to their Apple label, but it was not to be. Peter Green was very uncomfortable with all the acclaim, and as his mental stability deteriorated, he wanted to give all of the band’s money to charity!But he left John Mayall’s band to form Cream, and a replacement guitarist was needed…but how to follow that!?Enter unknown Peter Green, who quickly earned fans of his own, thanks to his class and style as a player, and unique sound – his playing was marked with a distinctive vibrato and economy of notes, as well as a unique tone from his 1959 Gibson Les Paul – a result of the guitar’s neck pickup magnet being reversed to produce an ‘out of phase’ sound.The amp section of this combination formed the basis of what would later become the Bluesbreaker 2X12″ combo. Peter admitted that the credit for this tune really should go to session producer Mike Vernon(of the famous Blue Horizon label). We were in the studio and I was playing this chord sequence on the organ which was really good.
