Wow. Major bummer.

From Billboard:

Bob Welch, a former Fleetwood Mac guitarist in the 1970s who helped bridge the gap between the band's blues-focused and pop-rock incarnations, died Thursday at his Nashville home of an apparent suicide, according to police. He was 66.

WKRN-TV, Nashville's ABC affiliate, as well as the Tennessean newspaper are reporting that Welch's wife found the musician with a gunshot wound to the chest at their home in the suburb of Antioch, Tenn. shortly after noon.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said Welch left a suicide note. He also noted that the musician had a history of health issues, but did not elaborate further.
