Bob Welch

Nashville police are reporting that Bob Welch, former Fleetwood Mac guitarist and solo artist, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 65. Welch was in Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974 and his exit made way for Lindsey Buckingham, shepherding in the band's hitmaking era.

But Welch went on to be a successful solo artist, scoring big hits with soft rock staples "Sentimental Lady" and "Ebony Eyes" in 1978. RIP, Bob.

Videos for both those hits are below.
