Before Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974, ‘Oh Well’ was the only Fleetwood Mac song that created a ripple in the U.S. Penned by the late great Peter Green, it was one of his last contributions to the band before he became another casualty of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. Well actually, it wasn’t so much the sex and rock’n’roll that caused his breakdown in 1970. Until then, he’d had a great run as a revered guitarist with impeccable credentials, having replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers before forming Fleetwood Mac in 1967. The stop and start technique of ‘Oh Well’ inspired Jimmy Page to do the same thing on ‘Black Dog’. Now that’s influence. R.I.P. Peter Green, who died on Saturday. Have a great weekend.
