Why Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac changed American music
Posted by Dan O'Brien on 2/26/2013 5:18:00 PM.
The original Fleetwood Mac was first and foremost, a super charged blues outfit that boasted three world class guitar slingers.Peter Green,a legend for many players was arguably  Britains finest blues players ever(sorry EC),Danny Kirwan,who was nearly Green's equal and Jeremy Spencer who played slide with the fury of the great Elmore James.This high octane blues unit was so good that after their first American tour,Duane Allman decided to leave session work and put a band together...That band was the Allman Brothers Band,calling in brother Gregg,from the west coast to handle vocals and keys. Carlos Santana was so into Green's guitar work that he emulated his stylings..Carlos' favorite Green song was a riveting instrumental called "The Supernatural"....Sound familiar?!One could even stretch a bit to make a case that the "Southern Rock" thang was nothing more than "The Mac" with a twang and a cowboy hat...........More later...Dan O Brien..
