Bob Welch, a former member of Fleetwood Mac who went on to write songs and record several hits during a solo career, died Thursday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. He was 65.
Police spokesman Don Aaron said Welch's wife found him with a chest wound at their south Nashville home around 12:15 p.m.

Welch was a guitarist and vocalist for Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974. He formed the British rock group Paris in 1976, and had hits including "Sentimental Lady" in 1977 and "Ebony Eyes" in 1978. Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham did backup vocals on "Sentimental Lady.

@Lustig Andrei,

Founding member Mick Fleetwood did not immediately respond to e-mails for comment Thursday.
When he does whatever he says will be said with clenched teeth.

@Joe Nation,
He said it was shocking and he couldn't understand it, that Bob was always a happy guy, very intelligent. Not said with clenched teeth, either.

Welch was a rather treacly addition to Mac, especially when you consider how bluesy they were with Peter Green and what a hit machine they became by adding Buckingham-Nicks.
But there's one song that has always been a pleasure to listen to:Hypnotized

See ya Bob. You made some good music.
