Before Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, there was Peter Green!
Long before Fleetwood Mac took the world by storm with the incredible album Rumours, featuring Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham on vocals, the band was led by Peter Green.
Green actually founded the band with drummer Mick Fleetwood, before John McVie joined.
Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, as they were known, had blues hits with the three tunes Need Your Love So Bad, Elmore James Shake Your Money Maker and perhaps most known, the instrumental Albatross.
They did receive some recognition, although this clearly pales in comparison to the later version of the band that made Rumours, one of the best-known albums of all time.
Peter Green’s guitar playing has been hailed by his peers as one of the best around. Need Your Love So Bad captures this perfectly.
You will do yourself a great service by looking into how to play this song, especially if you study Peter Green’s delicious licks in great detail.
