In early 2020, Mick Fleetwood gathered a number of musicians in London for a tribute concert to former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green. Green, a key figure in the British blues explosion of the late ‘60s, named the band after its rhythm section of Fleetwood and John McVie, asserting that he would eventually leave the band but that the group would still have a recognizable name. The 2020 tribute concert featured appearances from Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Kirk Hammett of Metallica and others. We’ll hear selections from the newly-released concert as well as music from Pink Floyd’s new Live at Knebworth, 1990 release, which finds the David Gilmour-led version of the band revisiting a number of songs from the band’s 1970s output.
