The second live track recorded at a musical celebration of the early years of Fleetwood Mac and its founder Peter Green has been released, featuring Aerosmith’s, Steven Tyler and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, performing a raucous version of ‘’Rattlesnake Shake’. The full band on the track includes Mick Fleetwood himself, who curated the event, alongside Dave Bronze, Jonny Lang, Andy Fairweather Low, Ricky Peterson, Zak Starkey and Rick Vito.
