Both Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and Metallica's Kirk Hammett have contributed songs to the new deluxe book on Fleetwood Mac co-founder, the late-Peter Green. Peter Green – The Albatross Man will be published in October, with pre-orders available now.
The tome, which is available in several editions including market and collectible, charts Green's musical journey through the years with Loudersound.com reporting: “David Gilmour (is included) on a version of 'Need Your Love So Bad' that features a newly discovered vocal from Green, recorded in the mid-1960's in his mother’s attic on a tape recorder. Kirk Hammett plays on the second new recording, a version of the 1971 classic 'Man Of The World,' which also features Mick Fleetwood on drums.”
Hammett, who now owns Green's classic gold top Gibson Les Paul, paid a visit to Green with the instrument before recording the track in at London's Abbey Road in January 2020. Hammett said, “Every single time I pick her up, she makes me a better player. I’m obsessed with her. I bring her everywhere with me. Where I sleep, she sleeps, basically. And I try to play her as much as possible because she wants to be played.”
