A live performance video of ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Metallica’s Kirk Hammett performing the iconic Peter Green-penned tune “The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)” was released today. The performance was filmed in February 2020 at the Mick Fleetwood & Friends concert honoring Peter Green and the early days of Fleetwood Mac. In the video, Hammett plays Peter Green’s legendary 1959 Les Paul guitar.
You can watch the video now in the player below.
Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac took place at the London Palladium just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the live music industry for the foreseeable future. The tribute concert took on even greater meaning when Peter Green passed away a few short months later.
The resulting concert film will hit cinemas for two nights only in March 2021 and will be released on physical formats including gatefold 4LP, 2-CD + Blu-ray and digital audio on April 30th. A deluxe 44-page hardbound bookpack includes extensive photographs of the concert, rehearsals, and behind-the-scenes, quotes from each artist who took part in the show, sleevenotes by Anthony Bozza in conjunction with Mick Fleetwood, a Blu-Ray of the concert film and the full recording on double CD and quadruple vinyl.
