The Fleetwood Mac co-founder recently passed away age 73, and Stevie – who joined the band in 1975, after Peter had already left – has paid a glowing tribute to him.
She said in a statement posted on her Twitter account: “I am sorry to hear about the passing of Peter Green. My biggest regret is that I never got to share the stage with him. I always hoped in my heart of hearts that that would happen.

“My biggest regret is that I never got to share the stage with him. I always hoped in my heart of hearts that that would happen,” singer says of Fleetwood Mac co-founder
“When I first listened to all the Fleetwood Mac records, I was very taken with his guitar playing. It was one of the reasons I was excited to join the band.
“His legacy will live on forever in the history books of Rock n Roll. It was in the beginning, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac and I thank you, Peter Green, for that. You changed our lives. (sic)”
Meanwhile, Mumford and Sons guitarist Winston Marshall has also paid tribute to the music star, whose death was announced on Saturday (25.07.20).
He wrote on Twitter: “RIP Peter Green. #GOAT . Man of the world, oh well, albatross, need your love so bad. Some of my favourites songs and performances of all time. Thank you for the music (sic)”
David Coverdale, the lead singer of Whitesnake, also hailed the late star, describing him as a “loved and admired” artist.
In Stevie Nicks’ latest Instagram dispatch from home, the rock legend befriends a dove and reveals the inspiration behind the opening lyrics to her hit song “Edge of Seventeen.”
According to Rolling Stone, Nicks posted a video of a dove sitting atop a branch in front of a bright blue sky, cooing as it stares at her — then delved into the story behind the song in the caption: “In 1980 I was flying home from Phoenix, Arizona, and I was handed a menu that said, ‘The white wing dove sings a song that sounds like she’s singing ooh, ooh, ooh. She makes her home here in the great Saguaro cactus that provides shelter and protection for her…’ As you well know, I was very taken with that whole picture and went on to write ‘Edge of Seventeen.’”
Nick went on to reveal that she had never actually heard dove song until very recently. “Several days ago, outside my room, I started to hear the sound of a bird singing the same thing over and over. One little Ahhh~ and then three OOH’s~ over and over again. I thought it was an owl, but a friend said, ‘No, that’s a dove!’ I started to cry. This dove had come here to watch over me.”
