Musician, One-Time Fleetwood Mac Member Bob Welch Dead at 66 [VIDEO]
Singer, songwriter, and former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch has died. Police say the musician died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Welch left Fleetwood Mac before the group acquired Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, and reached superstar status. He went on to launch a solo career, with hits such as ‘Sentimental Lady’, and ‘Ebony Eyes’.
According to CNN, Stevie Nicks said in a statement that she’s devastated by his death.
“I had many great times with him after Lindsey and I joined Fleetwood Mac,” singer Nicks said. “He was an amazing guitar player — he was funny, sweet — and he was smart.
“I am so very sorry for his family and for the family of Fleetwood Mac — so,so sad,” Nicks said.
J. Patrick will pay tribute to Welch Friday on the Cars Classic Lunch.
