Bob Welch, a former member of Fleetwood Mac, apparently took his own life inside his South Nashville home on Thursday.
Police were called to Welch’s home on West Oak Highland Drive at 12:18 Thursday afternoon, where Welch was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron.
Aaron said the matter was being investigated as a suicide and there is no indication of foul play. The police were also told that Welch, 66, suffered from health issues recently.
According to a biography on Fleetwood Mac’s website, Welch joined an early version of the band in the early 1970s before leaving in 1975 to form the band Paris.
Welch also had a solo career in the late ’70s, which produced singles such as “Ebony Eyes,” “Precious Love” and “Sentimental Lady.”
