Such sad news! Many UK news outlets are reporting this and all confirm that a more comprehensive statement is forthcoming.

Apparently, he passed away peacefully in his sleep:

Oh no.
Died peacefully in his sleep. That's good to know.
RIP Peter; great man and legend.

Farewell, Peter, and thank you.

It's hard not to feel utterly bereft at this news.

The very reason I listened to Fleetwood mac all those years ago...Peter Green
and his fabulous guitar playing,
Listened to them since 1967.
RIP Peter.

RIP and God speed. I hope he has found peace and beauty.

Also my heart goes out to Mick. I can only imagine the pain he is feeling.

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.

I hope he’s finally at peace.

I’m also glad he got to see how much he meant to so many earlier this year. Whether or not he got anything out of it is another matter.

Thank you for the music.

Default Sea Of Tranquility Tribute

Pete Pardo, Sea Of Tranquility – "Tribute To Peter Green" (10 min): https://www.amazon.com/Most-Dangerou.../dp/145075063X

I know he's off with some minor details such as calling Danny an original member, but still a nice tribute. I'm surprised he didn't mention Live At The Boston Tea Party (my introduction to Green), but he does cover the remainder of Green's work with FM as well as his work with John Mayall and on his solo album The End Of The Game. He also covers some of the technical aspects of his guitar work and really gets into what makes it so great.

Pete recently did a "Deep Cut Dive" show on Fleetwood Mac that covers some of his (and his co-host's) favorite lesser-known FM songs; including from the Green, Welch, and Buckingham-Nicks eras. As it covers most of the FM catalog I don't know in what forum to post it (perhaps both Early Years and Rumours), but fow now I'll post it here (skip first 3:34 and after 23:45 to skip the more or less generic intro and the closing plug for the music of co-host Jeff Young; skip 11:45-14:10 to skip the tangent about Bob Welch's band Paris): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKjsCnvzZI0
