RIP Bob Welch

When I first heard Bob Welch I was just a boy, I loved the song 'Ebony Eyes.'  I had no idea who sang it and probably didn't really care at that age.  That song stuck with me through years of not hearing it again, then some years ago I found out who did it and was able to find the song online.  Since then I have become even more familiar with him and his music, so I was sad to hear of his passing yesterday, especially with the circumstances.  He was part of  Fleetwood Mac in the early seventies (he sang on early versions of 'Rhiannon'), in fact, he left amicably and even set them up with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks and the Fleetwood Mac that everyone knows was born.
