When the rest of the band didn’t agree with the idea, Peter Green decided to leave Fleetwood Mac and the music business altogether.

While Fleetwood Mac carried on, to become one of the biggest bands in the world, Green was diagnosed with schizophrenia, a mental illness commonly characterised by hallucinations and paranoia, and spent time in psychiatric hospitals undergoing electroconvulsive therapy in the mid-1970s.

Peter Green first claim to fame was in 1966, when he had the tough job of replacing Eric Clapton in John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers.

Not to say that back then Fleetwood Mac weren’t successful – their self-titled debut album was a huge success in the UK and reached #4 in the charts.

It also featured hit single “Black Magic Woman”, written by Green.
