Default Remembering Peter Green: Fans and friends tell their stories

I came across this youtube video;

Remembering Peter Green: Fans and friends tell their stories

an Aussie guy (AustralianMusician) honouring Peter with interviews with a range musicians.
Got to admit, I haven't bothered with the interviews with all the Aussie musicians but there are interesting bits with Dennis Dunstan, Rick Vito, Dave Mason, Midge Ure and of all people, Leo Sayer.

The part with Dennis Dunstan is at (35 mins). Interesting, but I think Dustan has gotten himself totally confused about the bands involvement with The Children of God. Seems adamant he took TCoG to court over back royalties for Peter. Not sure who they were in litigation with, but it wasn't TCoG. Interesting to hear from him though.

The most interesting part was the interview with Leo Sayer (1 hr 24 min). He's a real fan of the band and admired Peter greatly. Great to hear him talking.

Also interesting hearing about Rick speak about the tribute show (1 hr 53 min). Rick was so happy to have taken the lead creative role in the tribute show.

Thank you FuzzyPlum!

Rick said in 2016, he and Mick went a little bit different ways and didn't keep in touch. In 2019, Mick called Rick and told him he wanted Rick for the London tribute show and he wanted to mend some fences...

Chatting in dressing room with Peter Green:

- You perform some songs that you played with Fleetwood Mac, do you try to play them like you used to, or do you have a different approach?

"I know I can't play them like I used to, but I'd rather copy myself than somebody else. I am not satisfied with my playing yet, but I am getting better".
