Original Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green will be honored with an all-star concerto organized by Mick Fleetwood, one of the band's remaining founding members. (John McVie is the other.)
On February 25th at the London Palladium, Fleetwood will be joined by Christine McVie, David Gilmour, Bill Wyman, Billy Gibbons, Steven Tyler, Jonny Lang, Andy Fairweather Low, John Mayall, Zak Starkey and others.
Fleetwood says, "The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor, and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honored to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician."
Green organized Fleetwood Mac in 1967 and left in 1970 after suffering a mental breakdown. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
Last week, Green visited with longtime Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, who tweeted about it Sunday.
