End of the Game?

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that, within me, there lay an
invincible summer.”

Albert Camus

End of the Game is a blog about dissecting culture and creativity through the lens of music, film, writing, psychology and marketing.

The title of the site comes from an instrumental guitar album by blues guitarist Peter Green. After the huge success of Fleetwood Mac and their constant touring, he grew to despise the music game. 

Whilst in the depths of an LSD unlocked state of schizophrenia, Green went into the studio and recorded his last album – a tour de force of unrestrained creativity, and all the pain and confusion of a man who was slipping away from reality.

The album was released without any public recognition and Green went into recluse for the next thirty or so years.
