LONDON – Jesus Christ has another biographer. This time it'll be the two lead guitarists of Fleetwood Mac.
Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer announced plans for an "orchestral-choral LP" to tell Jesus' life story. The record will be in addition to an album by the full band and a solo LP by Spencer, both due out before Fleetwood Mac's tour beginning in mid-July.
Green and Spencer are producing and scoring the Jesus LP. "We believe in God, and this is a serious venture," said Spencer.
Fleetwood Mac has been billed, in its two-years' existence, as a "committed blues" unit. Still, Spencer said, "I've been interested in religious epic music for some time, like Ben Hur and The Greatest Story Ever Told."
The LP, he said, will come complete with religious photographs and an accompanying story.
This story is from the July 12th, 1969 issue of Rolling Stone.
