Green left Fleetwood Mac following the release of Then Play On — that title is taken from the opening line of Shakespeare’s famed play “The 12th Night” — after he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. He spent a portion of the mid-1970s in hospitals to receive treatment for the mental disorder.
The cause of Green’s death is unknown. Mick Fleetwood, who formed Fleetwood Mac alongside Green has praised Green, saying he deserved the majority of the credit for the band’s early success.
