Did Peter ever play it live with FM? I've never heard a boot of it..
Sheffield 18th March and Helsinki 24th September 1969 apparently.
Nice to hear them play it. Mike Campbell's tone doesn't approach the piercing feel of Peter Green's recorded version though.

It’s a great song with great lyrics and Peters voice is so sad and meaningful.
I love this song so much. It's one of Christine's favs.

I think you are right. I remember hearing him do it, too.

God, you are right about that.

Literally no idea why this happened, but a former Texas Longhorn (HOOK'EM!) and current Indiana Pacers basketball player Myles Turner handed Mike Campbell his guitar at their Sydney show today/last night. He's currently on the U.S. National Team, which is playing in the 2019 FIBA World Cup tournament in Sydney. That's about all I know at this point, just passing it along:

https://twitter.com/Original_Turner/...31769567744000

UPDATE: It looks like he's genuinely a fan. Here's an excerpt from an April Indy Star story:

To punctuate the back-to-school lesson, Cousins issued a taunt after Turner complained about a whistle against him: “You a baby.”

It was like old times. Now Turner flips insults about his toughness into motivation. He's not the high-schooler who'd go back to suburbia in tears after being psyched out to believe that he wasn't good enough.

He knew to earn their respect, he had to kill it. The same went for Cousins. They don't actually care that he listens to Fleetwood Mac, how well he enunciates or if he sleeps in silk pajamas.

All of that ribbing took his mind away from where it belonged: On the basketball court.

He earned their respect despite listening to FM. Imagine that.
