[ Cheers and applause ] Thank you, John.

This is, uh, while the lads are setting up the stage, uh, take a couple of seconds to reflect on, uh, what this whole thing is truly all about.

We were a bunch of young kids with a dream, and it was in the '60s, and London was buzzing, there seemed to be a sort of freedom of music and art, they were exploding all over London, all over England, yes, indeed.

And we were all sharing ideas, and going to each other's gigs.

When I started working on this show, I just wanted to find a way to celebrate Peter's legacy and to honor the early years of Fleetwood Mac.

[ Cheers and applause ] And with -- with Peter in mind, it struck me, how incredibly generous he was.

What an honor it is to celebrate Peter and those early years of Fleetwood Mac with such a group of iconic musicians on stage tonight, so, thank you so very much.

[ Cheers and applause ] And right now, ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to welcome to the stage Noel Gallagher.

O0 C1 'Rattlesnake Shake' -- from Fleetwood Mac's 1969 album, 'Then Play On' - was a crowd-favorite in the late 60s.

Critically well-received, Rolling Stone magazine called 'Rattlesnake Shake' and 'Albatross' Peter Green's greatest works.

'Behind The Concert' reminds you that PBS is your home for fan-favorites and critical darlings and it is all possible because of your support.

Back in 1967, Peter Green formed the original Fleetwood Mac with Mick Fleetwood, and guitarist Jeremy Spencer.

After a series of hits in Britain Jeremy Spencer quit in 1971, and by 1974, three more guitarists had been through the rotation.

Then global success came with a new line up... You can go your own way, go your own way... Fronted by guitarist Lindsay Buckingham, and the ethereal Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac was reborn, on the way to becoming a world famous pop rock sensation... ...but long after Peter Green left the band in 1970, and even after his passing in 2020, the legacy of his blues-driven sound stayed alive in Mick and other admirers... And now is your chance to keep the legacy of phenomenal music performances alive on your PBS station, by going online right now and making a donation.

Where else but PBS, could you find fabled musicians coming together to celebrate one of their own in a top-notch concert performance... One of the four original members of Fleetwood Mac, Jeremy Spencer!

[ Cheers and applause ] Yeah!

-This is an event where we remember Peter.

For me, Peter is still something of a sad story.

It's even sadder for me, because the song that I picked tonight has got nothing to do with him at all.

It's from the 'Kiln House' album, it's 'Station Man,' which I want to just quickly show you something.

[ Playing ] ♪♪ That's 'Won't Get Fooled Again.'

Now listen to 'Station Man.'

-Oh, yeah!

-Thank you, Peter! I'd like you to welcome a dear, dear friend, and a current member, a member of Fleetwood Mac, to sing, for me, a very, very special song.

Hard to beat this song for me.

Make welcome Mr. Neil Finn!

[ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you.

That was him.

Whoo! [ Cheers and applause ] I'll have you know, that part two of 'Oh Well' has never, ever, ever been played on stage, ever, not even back in the day, so, thank you, David.

The first time ever performed on stage and played masterfully by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour on the guitar.

What a difference there is in composition and performance between Oh Well Part 1 and Part 2.

'Behind The Concert' is here to say you make a difference when you go online to support memorable concerts like this one on PBS.

Yeah, I gotta say one of the - one of the reasons I'm up here is because ... I started off, I learned from the best, tonight we are definitely celebrating the best... The Reverend from ZZ Top couldn't have said it better.

[ Cheers and applause ] Whoo!

Boom!

In 1969, after a long, long night, I was driving, I put the radio on, and I heard the Beatles -- they were talking about a beautiful song called 'Sun King.'

I didn't really register, apart from my eyes split open, and they said quietly, either George or John, said, 'This is where we do our... our 'Albatross' thing like Fleetwood Mac.'

And -- and that -- [ Cheers and applause ] That -- that woke the hell out of me, to know that, uh, this, uh, floating, lovely song had inspired just a little bit of -- of something so precious as the band who was talking on the radio.

This next beautiful song, 'Albatross,' written by Peter, uh, I would like to dedicate not only to Peter Green, but to George Harrison, and it happens to be his birthday today.

[ Cheers and applause ] It's been a long time coming.

Been a long time coming.

O0 C1 A long time coming indeed...it's been 50 years since Jeremy Spencer and Mick Fleetwood shared a stage... While on Tour in February 1971, Jeremy Spencer reportedly walked out on the band to join a Cult, the Children Of God.

And now in 2021, they come together for this tribute to fellow Fleetwood Mac founder, Peter Green.

Don't wait that long to join your friends and neighbors in supporting amazing music on PBS.

'Show me when Darling!'

Go online to pbs.org/donate right now to make a contribution in support of incredible one of a kind performances here on PBS.

Talkin' to my baby on the telephone, she said stop what you're doin' and come on home!

From legendary musicians like the Rolling Stone's Bill Wyman to legends-in-the-making like Johnny Lang, this concert showcases exceptional musical talent.

And it wouldn't be possible without your support.

Don't you come creepin' around, making me do things I don't want to do... Although Peter Green's Green Manalishi is about the evils of money, Peter knew the importance of supporting causes he believed in, giving away most of his fortune to various charities.

I can't believe you need my love so bad... We're not asking for that much from you, all we ask is for you to make a donation, whatever you can afford, to your PBS station at PBS.org/Donate.

Your contribution is an investment in the best of news & public affairs, arts, music and more.

When Mick Fleetwood originally asked Pink Floyd's David Gilmour to participate, David got cold feet and passed because he wasn't sure he could do justice to Peter Green's work... ...but he gathered his courage and joined the concert with unforgettable interpretations of the influential Albatross and the never-before-performed: Oh Well Part Two.

We're all better for the experience he gave us because of his willingness to step up and try something new.

Now is your chance to step up and support the breathtaking musical performances, like this concert honoring Peter Green, that you find here on PBS.
