AUSTRALIAN MUSICIAN ANNOUNCES PETER GREEN TRIBUTE LIVESTREAM. WIN A VOX CAMBRIDGE 50 AMP

On Saturday September 19 at 1pm AEST, Australian Musician presents a special two and a half hour livestream tribute to guitar great and founding member of Fleetwood Mac, the enigmatic Peter Green, who sadly passed away in late July this year.

Peter Green, was one of the world’s greatest blues rock guitarists, and as a songwriter will long be remembered for his hit songs Alabatross, Black Magic Woman and Oh Well. Musicians around the world also rate his lesser known tunes such as The Supernatural and Green Manalishi as examples of his wonderful touch as a guitar player.

Fittingly, our livestream on September 19 marks 51 years since the release of Fleetwood Mac’s acclaimed 3rd studio album Then Play On

In the tribute we chat with artists all over the world who were either influenced by Peter Green or personally knew him. The tribute presents feature interviews, a few riffs and licks and some never before told tales of the life of the elusive Peter Green.

Artists involved in our tribute include: Rick Vito (Fleetwood Mac), Leo Sayer, Midge Ure, Pete Stroud (Peter Green’s Splinter Group), Dennis Dunstan (Fleetwood Mac management 1978-1995), Orianthi, Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash), Dave Mason (Traffic), Brent Mason (US session player), and a host of respected Australian musicians including: Diesel, Geoff Achison, Shannon Bourne, Jeff Lang, Jimi Hocking, Hamish Anderson, Anne McCue, Gwyn Ashton & Chris Finnen, and Nathan Cavaleri. There’s also a special message sent from Peter’s Fleetwood Mac bandmate Jeremy Spencer.

Plus Australian audiences only have the opportunity to win a fabulous Vox Cambridge 50 watt amp by watching the feature and answering a question, which we will ask during the tribute.
