Former member of Fleetwood Mac Bob Welch found dead

(CBS/AP) Bob Welch, a former member of Fleetwood Mac who also had a solo career, has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Nashville police say. He was 65.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said Welch was found dead with a chest wound by his wife at their Nashville home around 12:15 p.m. Thursday.

Welch was a guitarist and vocalist for Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974. He formed the British rock group Paris in 1976, and had hits including "Sentimental Lady" in 1977 and "Ebony Eyes" in 1978.

Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham did backing vocals on "Sentimental Lady."

Aaron said Welch apparently had had health issues recently. He said a suicide note was left.
