RIP Peter Green. Peter was one of the first musicians in London to welcome Rory and Taste and Rory had huge admiration for Peter. The last recordings Rory ever made were for a Peter Green Tribute album, covering Peter’s ‘Leaving Town Blues’ and ‘Showbiz Blues’.

“With Rory, I first meet the lovely Peter Green and the other members of his Fleetwood Mac in Belfast, in ’68. They were making a visit to play at Club Rado, with Taste. Later, the bands giggled to together in Denmark. My brother was very fond and an admirer of Peter and they enjoyed each other’s company, I remember going with Rory to see the Doors, at the Camden Roundhouse, bumping into a lone Peter and the two guitarists headed to the bar, engaging into conversation for the night.
