Fleetwood Mac blues guitarist Peter Green is dead at 73- Associated Press

Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green has died at age 73, the Associated Press reported on Saturday (July 25), citing a statement from Green’s lawyers.

The law firm Swan Turton said in a statement that Green had died in his sleep this weekend, AP reported. The firm did not immediately return Reuters’ request for comment.

Born in Bethnal Green, London, Green formed Fleetwood Mac in 1967 with drummer Mick Fleetwood, guitarist Jeremy Spencer, and bassist John McVie, The Independent reported.

Regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Green was the songwriter behind classic Fleetwood Mac hits including “Albatross”, “Black Magic Woman”, and “Oh Well,” The Independent reported.

He left the band after a final show in 1970 amid disillusionment with the music industry and his struggles with mental health, which were exacerbated by his involvement with psychedelic drugs, The Independent reported.
