Man Of the World - The Peter Green Story
coming to home video on November 18th

The incredible story of the man who formed Fleetwood Mac

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 traces that early success, explores Peter's drug use and his eternal spiral into schizophrenia. The film also examines how the treatment he received (Electroconvulsive therapy or ECT) prolonged his illness and extended absence from the music scene. 

The story continues with Peter's fragile mental and artistic recovery, his return to the recording studio and live music scene in the mid 1990's that saw his most positive creative output for many years. It portrays an artist who has now come to express his feelings, not just through the guitar music he still loves, but also his art and photography. 

The film contains extensive and rare archive footage of live and studio performances, stills and original in-depth interviews with Peter GreenMick FleetwoodJohn McVieMike Vernon, (legendary producer of the original Fleetwood Mac "Blue Horizons" albums), Noel GallagherJohn MayallDennis Keane (road manager), Martin Celmins, (Peter's official biographer), Carlos SantanaJeremy Spencer, (the original Fleetwood Mac guitarist) and many others who were fortunate to work with or know this extraordinary Man Of the World.
