In a 2017 interview with The Associated Press, Fleetwood shared that Green was an integral part of the band, despite his leaving in 1971. The group was even initially called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” Fleetwood said.
