Kirwan also has his high points as well. “Coming Your Way” is the album's lead track and quickly proves there is a new guitarist in town. He is an exact fit for Green and each bring out the best in the other. “When You Say” and “Like Crying” are still worth multiple listens today.
Green and Kirwan would both become tragic figures. They would be in Munich together and legend has it took drugs at the same party. Both would endure years of mental illness, institutionalization, and homelessness. It would take Green decades to recover, but Kirwan never would and remains missing from the music scene. Both are members of The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for their work with Fleetwood Mac.
Then Play On contains the best of Peter Green and Danny Kirwan. Had they stayed together they might have formed one of the great guitar duos. Rock ‘n’ roll is dotted with "What Ifs," so this album will have to stand as their defining statement.
