Warner Music on Peter Green's passing27 July 2020 - Press release
"The Warner Music family is incredibly saddened to hear the news of Peter Green's passing. The influential guitar virtuoso, gifted singer-songwriter, and co-founder of Fleetwood Mac made an indelible contribution to the evolution of rock music. Legions of artists have been inspired by his signature musicianship and such Green-penned, revolutionary classics as 'Albatross,' 'Black Magic Woman,' 'Oh Well,' and 'The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown)'. His Rock & Roll Hall of Fame career included a fruitful time with Reprise Records that yielded both the landmark Fleetwood Mac album, Then Play On, and Green's first solo album, the experimental masterpiece, The End Of The Game. We offer his family, bandmates, and fans our deepest condolences in this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Peter."
