Peter Green: Five Essential 'Live' Solos - Guitar Player Magazine

I've written an article...a small labour of love about Five Essential 'Live' Solos by Peter Green for Guitar Player Magazine. Original photo by George Wilkes Archive.
I also want to add a public statement to my article: I love Claptons early work and his role w/Bluesbreakers is key to PG's history. To clarify regarding my comments about Clapton. I am only stating in article that Peter Green's work was On Par/Equal to Clapton's best. Peter Green's work deserves to been celebrated along with Clapton. It's unfortunate that when I was growing up, I never even heard of Peter Green..cause nobody was talking about him...while Clapton was everywhere, I am Grateful for both musicians.
