    Very sad news. We only saw him live once, in 2002, when he supported John Mayall. Green was the best thing about the evening.

    Me too - he was supporting Mayall at the time.

    I expect this to be placed elsewhere, but the back in the day, as the rumour goes, he was living in a tent in the mid/late 60's in one of the posh areas of Hemel Hempstead.

    Terrible illness he suffered, incredible he bounced back.

    There is a report in The Guardian, which includes an inital statement from the family's solicitors who say Peter Green passed away peacefully in his sleep. https://www.theguardian.PeterGreen

    "In a testament to his influence on the British blues movement, legendary guitarist BB King once said of Green: “He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.”"

    He was headlining in a Parisian theatre when I saw him. Obviously still fragile, but with flashes of genius.

    Right - my next play is that 1970 live set from the Boston Tea Party club, with the 8min + take of the Green Manalishi.
