I’ve needed one of these


For fifty years!

  1. One guitar player I would never turn down Peter Green who’s birthday is today. his was the real Fleetwood Mac in my in my humble opinion.

  2. Ah yes. It those days I reckon the best of all British blues players and singers. He had a very fine voice – eg on the first album

  3. Does Pete remember the police siren pedal he made and lent to me back in Bennetts days ? I used it with a dance band I played bass guitar with for a summer season over at the old Coronation Holiday Camp in Hayling. I never told the band members I had it and during the appropriate tune, I hit the button…..dropped jaws (and pints) like I’d never seen before, priceless !

    • Hey Rod I wish I still had one. Those were great fun. Scared the crap out of the punters at Warners for years. Used to use it when we played “Indiana Wants Me” by Lobo.

  4. Funnily, I have a similar picture, labelled ‘Band’s Dream Stompbox’. I don’t know how to post pictures here, but the pedals are:-

    1. Turn down singer’s ego
    2. Get singer in same key as band
    3. Improve singer’s dress sense

    You’d need a lot of batteries to run it!

    Of course, none of the pedals would be pressed for Peter Green, or to be fair, for Lindsey Buckingham either; well maybe a touch of the first one.
