R.I.P. Peter Green.
Incredible player. Would have been a Rock casualty had he not redeemed his standing and his Robert Johnson tribute album deserves every award.

I can see how this influenced great guitarists like Jeff Beck and Robin Trower.

Anybody ready to compare and contrast what LSD did to both Green and Syd?

I had the pleasure of seeing him in the 90's. For me, his playing lacked what it had and much of that emotive playing had gone. Maybe that was just how it was on the night I don't know but back in the day, he had it all.
