Peter made his debut in 1966 with the Peter B’s Looners, with which he recorded a single. Green then played guitar in the band of John Mayall, but in 1967 left John Mayall and founded Fleetwood Mac with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. From 1967 to 1970, Fleetwood Mac was one of the major groups of the rock scene, during which period Green became an inspired composer, notably with the piece “Black Magic Woman” in 1969, certainly establishing his net worth.

However, while Fleetwood Mac was at its peak in early 1970, the mental health of Peter Green became a concern. A complex and tortured personality, he does not see his status as a super star. He sought comfort in religion, but also in artificial paradises, which only further caused deterioration in his condition. Peter Green would have a vision of an angel who would ask him to devote the group’s income to peace in the world. It was as a result of this vision that he wrote “Green Manalishi” in 1970. In May 1970, he left the group suddenly, to record a solo instrumental album with the premonition title: “The End of the Game”, after which Peter Green abandoned music.

Caught up in a mystical spiral, he sold his belongings and ended up in a psychiatric hospital. He accumulated odd jobs for several years, including that of gravedigger. He got back to the entertainment industry in 1979 with the album “In The Skies”, very warmly welcomed by the critics, but after a few other releases, he sank again into a long depression, and schizophrenia. It took more than ten years for Peter Green to emerge from his silence, in the middle 1990s. Pushed by Nigel Watson, he founded the Splinter Group, which has since recorded many albums, and continues to perform regularly on stage. Fans have criticized the group, because Green did not sing, was not a solo guitarist, and apparently had just a minor role, although he seemed to have recovered both psychologically and physically. The Splinter Group continued to live in relative undeserving anonymity until 2005. A compilation of the work of Peter Green was published in 2008: it is group on four CDs, the essential part of this guitarist, a bible for the lovers of this legendary bluesman and instrumentalist. Some promotional concerts were organized in 2009 with a new formation, Peter Green and Friends, with which Green found himself a soloist, but had lost a lot of his technique.

Finally, in the personal life of the musician, he married Jane Samuels in 1978, but the two divorced in 1979, after having one child. He has apparently remained single since then.
