Fleetwood Mac Legend Peter Green To Play First UK Gig In 4 Years

Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green is to play his first UK show in over four years at this year's Cornbury Festival, it has just been announced.

The legendary blues guitarist, performing with 'friends' will play the Cornbury main stage on Saturday July 11 on a bill that includes The Damned, Teddy Thompson and Magic Numbers.

The second day of the festival will see artists like The Pretenders, Sugababes and Eddi Reader perform.

After replacing the legendary Eric Clapton in John Mayall's Blues Breakers for the classic 'A Hard Road' album in 1967, Peter went on to form Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, one of the most successful bands to come out of Britain in the 60's. Green's genius on the guitar was matched by the songs he wrote including "Black Magic Woman", later a huge debut hit for Santana, "The Green Manalishi (With The Two Pronged Crown)", later covered by Judas Priest, the supernatural and sublime instrumental "Albatross", as well as the classic 'Oh Well'.
