Peter Green was known to be an exceptionally private man, but the legendary blues-rock electric guitar player and Fleetwood Mac founder, who passed away in July 2020 at the age of 73, spent the last four years of his life working on a detailed book about his life.

Now that book, a massive, illustrated effort titled The Albatross Man, is being released via Rufus Publications.
