Bob Welch, solo artist and former band member of Fleetwood Mac died on June 7, 2012.

The New York Times and other papers around the globe announced the news of his passing and police report it is likely a suicide after complicated health problems. We remember Mr. Welch for adding a melodic sound to the already great blues band of Fleetwood Mac. Although his stay in the group was brief, 1971-1974, some say it was influential and a turning point for the band to explore more harmonious sounds.

He went on to start a band called Paris and then had a solo career with popular hits that will be remembered. Lindsey Buckingham and Christie MacVie sang backup vocals on this widely recognized track, "Sentimental Lady."
