Artist Bio

Influences:   Byrds, Beatles, Faces, Stones, Motown, Mod, Stax, Who, GP, Big Star, Flamin' Groovies, Syd's Floyd, Bowie, T Rex, VU, plus all those people I love but you can't hear in my music

Rustic rock Rules, OK

London & Country, love & heartbreak, heaven & earth … songs by Peter Green (ex Hearts on Fire, Bluebird Blue) Putting down roots in a country of origin that looks like a dreamscape.

Trying to be lucky in love (fingers crossed) on England’s mountains green and with guitars a’twanglin under a Tennessee Orange sunburst

Where the radio brings the grown-up world from far to here….

Where California is a state of mind, just like in ‘Sweet Home Chicago’

Where dandylions shake their golden manes in the grass and mandylions (or mandolins?) twinkle starlike in a black denim sky.

Featured vocals by David Equality Watters ‘Never Blend in’ ; Phil Sherwood (bass); Dan Cooper (piano, Hammond organ & everything else).

    Haha thanks Peter. I did apply the idea to different music. Thanks to you and Georgie for the inspiration!

    Hi Peter! Congratulations on posting 14 songs! As to FAWM A, after further thought you are right. The off-the-cuff futuristic lyric I suggested probably doesn't work with the music, so it may be best for me to let that idea go. Keep writing!

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 19

    Hi Peter, I posted lyrics for "Well-Wisher" in the comment section of your FAWM A submission. I wrote the lyrics to match your vocal cadence. If you don't use it, I'll just post them on my own page.

    @soulbird, if you want to respond to someone's comment on your song threads, you need to post it on their soundboard, not on your song thread itself. 😉

  • @staticcaptain  Feb 10

    Thanks for your comment. I look forward to hearing your stuff. Very cool album art, btw.

  • @bootlegger Feb 10

    Yeah in Chicago all the fire escapes are wooden.

    Slack is a messaging app that has a FAWM thread. Sorry that was a bit obscure!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 4

    Panda Puffs are a legit real thing. 😀

    And I sang the song as I was eating them into my iPhone. 😀

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 4

    Oh wow - that is indeed some high praise!!! 😁 thank you kindly

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 4

    Take a deep breath. You got this.
    Maybe lower your preconceived expectations about what FAWM has to be. Just let it happen. 😀

    And maybe along the way you'll also get a few tunes you love. 😀

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 4
