Mick Fleetwood & Friends celebrate the music of Peter Green - London Palladium, 25 February 2020In the run-up to the Peter Green Celebration concert, which takes place in just under a month's time at London's Palladium (poster shown to the left), and includes David Gilmour amongst the performers that night, fellow participant Kirk Hammett has been speaking to about a Peter Green tribute album also coming out.

In the interview, Hammett notes that he plays on two songs on the album, and one of them - Need Your Love So Bad - involves David.

Hammett said: "There was a demo of this one song called Need Your Love So Bad that they found. It's a demo; Peter Green sang that song in his bedroom, and at the end of it you could hear his mom saying to turn it down or something like that. So what they did, they took that vocal track and they isolated it, and they've created an augmented instrumentation track done by David Gilmour. So the song Need Your Love So Bad, [was] created by David Gilmour and his band, and they flew in the vocals on top of it.

"It's a more modern, updated version of Need Your Love So Bad, and that's one of the tracks. The other track is Man of the World with myself and Mick Fleetwood. I am singing on it; it's an easy song to sing, it's got that talk-singing kind of thing, I can handle that. That's about the length of my singing abilities, but I'm into it. I'm so into it, I'm into all aspects of it, it's just one of those things, it just kind of unfolded like this.”

Once we have more information about this tribute album, we will of course let you know. As a reminder, the tribute concert includes (other than Hammett and Gilmour) Mick Fleetwood, Billy Gibbons, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler and Bill Wyman. Alongside the invited guest musicians, the house band consists of Fleetwood alongside Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson, and the concert will be filmed for eventual release.
