Bob Welch committed suicide at his home in Nashville yesterday. Welch played with Fleetwood Mac from 1971- 1975. When he left the band, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined and the band went on to its greatest success. Welch went on to have moderate success with 'Sentimental Lady' and 'Ebony Eyes.' Check out this 1973 performance of 'Miles Away' with Fleetwood Mac. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that he had spinal surgery and told his wife that he did not want her to have to care for an invalid.

Check out this clip from the Midnight Special in 1973.
