American musician and well-known former member of Fleetwood Mac, Bob Welch is dead; on June 7, the 66-year-old shot himself to death. Singer behind hits such as "Hot Love, Cold World" or "Precious Love" etc. was found dead at his Nashville home while at around 12:15 p.m. Bob’s body was discovered on Thursday afternoon, by his wife since 1985, Wendy Armistead.

L.A. (California) born Robert Lawrence "Bob" Welch, Jr. who suffered several undisclosed health issues lately, is believed to have committed suicide. Wendy discovered her husband’s lifeless body with an evident self-inflicted gunshot, to the 66-year-old’s chest. Further, according to Don Aaron, a police spokesman, a suicide note left by the Californian musician confirmed that Bob took his own life.

Denying the possibility of any foul play involved in his death, Aaron however did not elaborate on any specific details regarding Welch's health or the issues he faced. A guitarist and a vocalist, Welch would be long remembered for the albums he worked on in the likes of Future Games and Bare Trees. In the year 1976, Welch had founded Paris, a British rock group while in the following couple of years; he produced hits like ‘Sentimental Lady’ and ‘Ebony Eyes.’

One of his hits in 1977 was ‘Dreams’ followed by ‘Don’t Stop,’ a Number 1 hit that inspired Bill Clinton’s camp enough to make it the anthem for his presidential campaign.
