Peter Green is best remembered as the original impresario behind Fleetwood Mac. He founded the band and then left, reportedly because they refused to donate all of the proceeds from their records to charity. Green was immediately deemed insane and encouraged to make other arrangements. During his brief tenure with the Mac, however, he delivered some of the finest blues guitar work in rock 'n' roll. His fluid playing style was smooth enough to charm a snake right out of its skin. Green's almost mythical status as an electric guitar demi-god has been heightened by his reclusiveness and his aura of deranged genius.
