RIP Peter Allen Greenbaum

We know him as Peter Green. He died in his sleep.

In my youth I really appreciated his music and especially the single Oh Well part one with part two on the B-side was a favorite. How happy I was in the seventies, when I was able to record both sides of the 45 rpm single with one of the first cassette recorders and then listen to it without interruption …..

I think that hardly anyone nowadays hears the entire song … on the radio you only hear the first part.

B.B. King once said that Peter Green was the only guitarist that gave him the cold sweats.

He wrote another song that keeps me thinking about Amy Winehouse … (feeling good, 2001) … I think they’re rehearsing that song now, Amy doing the vocals …

The following video is a good example of the blues I often listened to as an adolescent … timeless.

I’m sure he will rest in peace … he deserves it.
