Green, a prominent blues rock guitar player, from Bethnal Green in east London, formed Fleetwood Mac with drummer Mick Fleetwood in the city in 1967.
He left the band in 1970 as he battled with psychological health issue, prior to it turned into one of the biggest-selling acts in rock.
Green was ultimately detected with schizophrenia and hung around in healthcare facilities going through electro-convulsive treatment throughout the mid-70 s.
The artist was amongst the 8 members of the band – in addition to Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, John McVie, Christine McVie, Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer – who were inducted into the Rock & & Roll Hall of Popularity in 1998.
