Bob Welch, one of the first and original of the band Fleetwood Mac and had a successful solo career left a suicide note and killed himself with a gun inflicted wound last Thursday in his Nashville residence. Welch was found by his wife dead with a chest wound.
The unexplained reason for suicide was questioned bynoting that it is unlikely for Welch to commit the act. He said Welch is an intelligent and a humorous person and this act is not so him. This year alone, Welch is the second member of the Fleetwood Mac band who passed away after their former guitarist died last January. He died of gastrointestinal haemorrhage in London. He was 64 while Welch is 66.
Bob Welch launched a solo career in 1977 and produced hits like Sentimental Lady, Ebony Eyes and Hot Love, Cold World. In 1994, he sued his band mates from Fleetwood Mac for unpaid royalties. The group in return excluded him thus he was not included when the band was inducted at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
