Synopsis:
After replacing the legendary Eric Clapton in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Peter went on to form Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, one of the most successful bands to come out of Britain in the 60's. Peter's genius on the guitar was matched by the songs he wrote including Black Magic Woman, later a huge debut hit for Santana and the supernatural and sublime instrumental Albatross, as well as the classic Oh Well. The film also examines how the treatment he received (electroconvulsive therapy) prolonged his illness and his extended absence from the music scene.
The story continues with Peter's fragile mental and artistic recovery and his return to the recording studio and the live music scene in the mid-1990's. This was when his most positive creative output for many years was seen and an artist is portrayed who has come to express his feelings, not just through the guitar music he still loves, but also through his art and photography. The film contains extensive and rare archive footage of live and studio performances, stills and original in-depth interviews with Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Mike Vernon (legendary producer of the original Fleetwood Mac Blue Horizons albums), Noel Gallagher, John Mayall, Dennis Keane (road manager), Carlos Santana, Jeremy Spencer (the original Fleetwood Mac guitarist) and of course Peter himself, as well as many others who have been fortunate to work with or know his extraordinary Man of the World.
