Danny Kirwan dead.

 

Overshadowed by Peter Green but no less dramatic, after a brief stint in the spotlight he spent much of the last 40 years homeless by all accounts.

 

Great guitarist.

I don't know how much the Munich LSD stories are to blame or whether the other members used it as a convenient excuse to phase them out, but psychologically the pair of them went down fast after that incident. Makes you wonder what the real truth was there.

Kirwan lasted another two years after Green left but the Munich incident definitely seemed very weird. The impression I get from the rest of the band is that they were pretty bitter about what happened.

The stories are quite contradictory. If you listen to Mick the pair of them almost died in the backseat of the car tripping but Green's recollection is more normal, that he enjoyed the party and wrote good music there.

McVie tells it pretty straight. The road manager went mad as well. Of course Green had a good time

 

I dont think Kirwan was in Munich -- in any case about 5 guitar players from Mac have passed under duress/suicide -- Bob Welch included

Id say in Greenes case, acid wouldnt have helped if he had any mental health issues going on at the time. The lyrics in Man of the World had already hinted at someone struggling with issues. I don't think Kirwan was in Munich.

 

According to Mick Fleetwood, Green wanted the band to give away all the money they made to charity. Could see that as causing friction in the band.

Fuck’s sake, what a knob. Makes me cringe whenever I see Nicks perform or collaborate with the little blert. That said, my marriage proposal to her (wrote a letter to her fan club when I was about 10) still stands.

Rumours is a classic

Every birds bedroom had that album years ago, so for that reason it is. Some good tracks on that, but none as good as Over My Head from the previous album.

Negged for apologising about negging. 

Repped for negging me for apologising about negging, as I feel it is only fair. However, I am somewhat disappointed that you neglected to call me a cunt.

Bernie Marsden : Jamming with Peter Green

Every three months or so, Bernie Marsden makes a two-hour drive from his home near Oxford, heading south-west. He'll arrive at his destination – an unremarkable house in a quiet residential street – feeling a little nervous. A short while after he rings the bell, the front door opens. "I go, ‘Hello Pete’, or sometimes I call him Pedro. Then he invites me in and makes me a cup of tea. Mentally, I still pinch myself as I walk through the door", says Marsden. As former songwriter and guitarist with UFO, Whitesnake and Paice Ashton Lord, Bernie isn’t normally given to starry-eyedness. But these visits are different. The person he comes to see is Peter Green, his idol as a young guitarist growing up in the late ’60s. The fanboy, it transpires, has never quite left him.

Before too long, Marsden and Green move to the front room with their guitars, where they are joined by Green’s friend and neighbour Paul Hoenderkamp. "He makes sure Peter plays every other day", says Marsden. "I think they go fishing together, too." The three of them begin playing - a loose jam between friends, with no agenda. Marsden sets a tape running to record what they do. "Last time around we did 'Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’On', Little Richard’s 'Lucille', 'The Young Ones' by The Shadows and The Beatles’ 'Help!' And then we started rolling into ‘Oh Well’…"  On his most recent visit to Green’s place, shortly before Christmas, Bernie Marsden took with him a bootleg of Fleetwood Mac recordings, circa 1967-68. "It's BBC sessions and two American concerts", he says. "Really good quality. When I mentioned that one section sounded particularly good, Peter just went ‘Bit messy !‘ I imagine that’s what he was like to be in the band with at the time - really tough. But he admitted ‘Yeah, we were a good little band’."

    • This makes sense.   I'm sure an organisation like FIFA will see the value in waving goodbye to over a billion quid so that the AFCON and a few leagues can have plenty of time to finish their seasons without having to overwork the players.   After all, for FIFA, it's really always been about player welfare over money.
    • Jürgen Klopp has struck a realistic tone when discussing the likelihood of big money transfers arriving at Liverpool this summer.

      The fan reaction to the Reds deciding to pass on Timo Werner has been mixed with the club owners coming in for some criticism especially as he seemed to be a player that Klopp was reportedly very keen on.

      But on the other side of the coin, there were some astute voices casting doubt on whether the striker was all that keen on the move, especially as he was far from guaranteed to be a consistent starter, and indeed if would be a good fit for the side.

      Klopp spoke yesterday to Sky Germany (via The Mirror) regarding Werner and another player who has been linked in exciting midfielder Kai Havertz.

      And he said in the current climate, all best laid plans are out of the window.

      “There are a lot of good players on this planet.

      “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.

      “Right time, opportunity - everything has to come together. Six, seven weeks ago, we didn't know if we could play again this year. 

      “If we hadn't played the second half of the season, we would have thought, 'OK, when can you really play football again?' And now it starts right away.

      “We act as if everything is already settled. It's not settled. 

      “We use this little loophole we've been left to play football again Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. 

      “We can't pretend now that everything's going to be fine in the future.

      “Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain."

      Klopp raised a valid point when mentioning that Football clubs have a lot more to weigh up other than just comings and goings in the transfer window at this point of time.

      "There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick.

      "It's rather quiet here (at Liverpool) at the moment, I think it's safe to say. 

      “If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business and depend on income and have no idea how much you will earn... especially because we don't know when we can start playing with spectators again.

      "At the moment, all clubs are losing money. Without spectators, we have to pay back the season tickets and probably sell none next year. 

      “At least maybe without the first 10 or 15 games. The VIP areas won't be packed and the tickets won't be sold. This will have an impact on other partners and things will look a bit different.

      Going by what the manager said, it seems like the dream of seeing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Jadon Sancho, or Adama Traore wearing the Red of Liverpool may be on hold for the time being.

      On a more positive note, Klopp signalled the chance for fans to salute their heroes in grand style even if it has to be sometime during next season.

            “There comes a day when life will get back to normal.   “When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below - that day will come eventually. Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.

      "If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it - who is going to stop it? 

      “Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus. If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don't care.”

      “Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It's different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK."

      As well as the global pandemic, the world has been unified by the tragic death of George Floyd under the watch of members of the Minneapolis Police force.

      People taking to streets has become the norm and Footballers have also been at the forefront making their views known on the matter including the Reds squad who "took a knee" at training last week.

      Klopp was extremely proud of the stance they took.

      “It's so natural for us that we didn't even think about sending a message at first. 

      "Because it's completely normal, nobody realised that we would have to say it again. But then the boys noticed it. Then they spontaneously decided to do it.

      "I have been very proud of the boys for a long time, but this was another extraordinary moment. When I saw them there and this photo was taken, I was really proud, because it is also an important message. 

      “No question about it."
