Peter Green Mac was radically different than Stevie Nicks Mac, he left way before. Green is one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time and Fleetwood was a pure blues band, but quite underground. When he left they started making songs like The Chain, Go Your Own Way, Make Lovin' Fun, Gold Dust Woman, etc. I also prefer Green Fleetwood Mac. Black Magic Woman was also originally a Fleetwood Mac song by Peter Green. I do however, love The Chain. Go Your Own Way sucks, so overrated.


Green's version of Black Magic Woman was way better than Santana's.
Ariel, if you heard the version from the Boston Tea Party, you'd piss yourself.


So wait Santana actually covered it in his famous version? Wow, that's rich

I think The Chain is one of the best songs ever, but Go Your Own Way is legitimately embarrassing.

Who played bass in the 'Mac during their good period? Cheers.


Yup, Santana's is a cover. None of his versions top any version with Green.

The Chain is great, but Go Your Own Way isn't THAT bad. I'm not the biggest fan of that type of 'easy-listening' rock, but there's always exceptions.

John McVie has been the bass player for Mac throughout ALL lineups.
Although it was Peter Green who did that live bass solo I showed you. That was actually better than anything McVie could've done, more than likely.

Such a shame that Santana is identified so closely with that song then :sad:

Is McVie any good, generally speaking? Cheers

From what I've heard, he's not bad at all. He actually started out in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (with Clapton).
Capable player, nothing extraordinary, imo.

YES. Oh Christ those duelling lead guitars at the end... :eek: :eek: :eek:

That album is devastating. Any fan of killer blues-rock needs it in their collection.
I have the first two volumes, still need the third.

Ariel should check that out. :smile:

Also,
Yours Is No Disgrace > Heart Of The Sunrise, for Squire.

The bass throughout the whole thing is just utterly jaw-dropping.

Did Green era Mac release any studio stuff? The guitar was indeed on fire there

It really is epic, I was thinking about YIND recently and its bass, it's definitely one of his best. I think Close to the Edge title track is easily his best performance ever btw, and the best performance ever of bass in rock history

They released about three or four studio albums before Green left.
Nothing beats Live At The Boston Tea Party though.

It blows my mind, the bass stays fresh and exciting throughout the whole 8/9 minutes.
His tone sounds so much like Entwistle too...

Speaking of Entwistle, shouldn't My Generation be his highest?
I mean, that was one of the very first examples of rock bass guitar being a 'lead instrument', much like Keith did with his drumming.

Squire has said Entwistle and Macca were his two huge influences.

I'm not really worrying about fixing this list right now tbh. Main list needs to get finished first. Feel free to discuss performances here at will though

He does. Listen to Entwistle's tone on Live At Leeds.
Nearly indistinguishable from Squire.

Squire's tone is a bit warmer I think, but they are similar.
