Early Fleetwood Mac member Bob Welch was yesterday found dead in his Nashville home of an apparent suicide. He was 66 years old. According to police reports, Welch’s wife found his body with a single gunshot wound to the chest, and he had left a suicide note. Welch suffered from health problems, but police did not disclose what those issues were.

He was a guitarist and vocalist for the British-American rock band from 1971 to 1974, performing on early albums such as Future Games, Bare Trees and Mystery to Me. He went on to launch a solo career. Welch, a native of Los Angeles, scored his biggest hit with “Sentimental Lady,” which reached No. 8 on the Billboard chart. His other singles included “Precious Love” in 1979 and “Hot Love,” “Cold World” in 1978.
