Fleetwood Mac was formed in 1967 and became one of the most successful bands in history. But after just three years co-founder and guitarist Peter Green left the band. Now, 50 years later, drummer Mick Fleetwood has honoured his former bandmate at a star-studded tribute concert at the London Palladium this week.
The gig was in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and featured performances from big stars.
They included Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
Also, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, The Who’s Pete Townshend, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Fleetwood Mac’s Neil Finn and Christine McVie.
John Mayall, who let Green replace Eric Clapton in the Bluesbreakers was also in attendance.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Fleetwood said: “The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began.
“And it’s important to recognise the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music.
“Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent.
“I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician."
