Sad day for rock and blues fans.
FLEETWOOD MAC co-founder Peter Green has died at the age of 73.
His family confirmed his death in a statement released by solicitors Swan Turton, who is acting on their behalf.
“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” the statement reads. “A further statement will be provided in the coming days.”
Green co-founded FLEETWOOD MAC with Mick Fleetwood and Jeremy Spencer in 1967 and wrote one of the band’s biggest hits, “Albatross”.
He left FLEETWOOD MAC in 1970 and was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia.
