Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, Pete Townshend and Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher joined forces for an all-star tribute to legendary Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green last night (February 25).
The show, at the London Palladium, was organised by Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood and featured appearances from Mac keyboard player Christine McVie and original guitarist Jeremy Spencer.
Gibbons appeared on Green-era Mac tracks Dr Brown, All Your Love, Rattlesnake Shake and Oh Well. He was joined on the latter two songs by Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler.
David Gilmour made a rare live appearance, adding guitar to Oh Well and lap steel to the band’s 1968 instrumental hit Albatross, which Fleetwood dedicated to late Beatles guitarist George Harrison, while Kirk Hammett appeared on The Green Manalishi (WIth The Two Prong Crown).
Fleetwood Mac themselves were represented by Christine McVie, who sang and played keyboards on Stop Messin‘ Around and Looking For Somebody, while current Fleetwood Mac guitarist/vocalist Neil Finn performed Green‘s 1969 showcase Man Of The World.
While Green himself didn’t appear, original guitarist Jeremy Spencer joined the band for The Sky Is Crying and I Can’t Hold On.
The set ended with an all-star version of Elmore James’ Shake Your Moneymaker, which Fleetwood Mac covered on their self-titled 1968 debut album.
