Bob Welch, former member of the popular rock band Fleetwood Mac, was discovered dead on Thursday in his Nashville home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. He was 66.
Welch joined Fleetwood Mac back in 1971, penning the hits “Hypnotized” and “Sentimental Lady” and contributing material to five albums including Future Games, Bare Trees, Penguin, Mystery to Me and Heroes Are Hard to Find.
After his departure in 1974, Fleetwood Mac shot to stardom thanks to the additions of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Their presence led to mainstream success with the albums Fleetwood Mac and the multi-platinum Rumours in 1977.
Welch formed the band Paris in 1976 and embarked on a successful solo career.
