Henry Hadaway OrganizationA recent documentary about original Fleetwood Mac singer/guitarist Peter Green will be released on DVD on November 18. Man of the World: The Peter Green Story delves into the life, career and personal struggles of the influential artist, who fronted the famed U.K. band from 1967 until 1970, when mental health and drug issues led him to withdraw from the music business.

The film features archival live and studio performances, as well as interviews with Green; fellow founding Fleetwood Mac members Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer; Carlos Santana; Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher; and others.

Green first gained notoriety after he replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. As leader of Fleetwood Mac, Peter wrote and performed on such memorable tunes as “Black Magic Woman,” “Oh Well” and “Albatross.” The documentary will explore those successful periods of his life, as well as his descent into drug abuse and schizophrenia, and his eventual return to music in the 1990s.

You can check out a trailer for the film on YouTube now.
