After the extremely sad news yesterday of the passing of Fleetwood Mac's guitarist and vocalist, Bob Welch, his former bandmates are speaking out.
Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks expressed her condolences in a statement, saying:
"The death of Bob Welch is devastating…I had many great times with him after Lindsey and I joined Fleetwood Mac. 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…"
Welch was found in his home in Nashville, with a gunshot wound to the chest. He is survived by his wife, who found his body, along with a suicide note.
So incredibly heartbreaking…our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans at this time.
Rest in peace, Bob.
