The Definite Peter Green Documentary
15 January 2014 | by motionpicturevideoSee all my reviews

Like most Americans, I grew up hearing the music of Fleetwood Mac from "Rumors" on. I thought that Fleetwood and McVie started the band because their names are right in the title. Before the Internet, the only way to learn anything about your favorite band was to read something in a music magazine or newspaper, look at the album cover or listen to the music.

Artists in the 60's and 70's had a more mythical quality due to, in part, the lack of information 'out there' about them. We didn't know every little detail about your favorite band's lives unless something big happened. To a large chunk of America, Peter Green was relatively unknown. The overwhelming bombardment of the 1976 Fleetwood Mac had overshadowed anything that came before "Rumors". The perception was THAT was the beginning of the band.

The BBC's Peter Green: "Man of the World" reveals the real beginnings of one of Rock's biggest bands in the most honest way. Almost every key player in the early life of Fleetwood Mac is featured in very direct interviews. There is nothing fancy in this documentary. It is a straight forward story told by everyone who was there. The only missing players are fellow guitarist Eric Clapton and B.B. King, who both play a major role in Green's life.

Most of the story is told by Peter Green himself. He comes across as a modest, yet talented artist, who tells his story in a low-key very real way. Most of the early members of the Mac also contribute engaging stories that gives a new understanding to the founder of Fleetwood Mac.

Peter Green: "Man of the World" is an emotional reveal like very few Rock documentaries have achieved before. This documentary will stick with you and make you think about your own life thanks to the heart of it all, Peter Green's music.

It will also give you a truthful understanding of a unique under appreciated artist. The great music, the demons, the regrets…they're all here in a captivating package.
