Shelling out tribute, Whitesnake’s David Coverdale explained Eco-friendly was an artist he “genuinely beloved and admired”. In a tweet, he explained: “I supported the original Fleetwood Mac at Redcar Jazz Club when I was in a local band… he was a breathtaking singer, guitarist and composer. I know who I will be listening to these days. RIP”
