Bob Welch, a former member of Fleetwood Mac, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Nashville, E! News confirms. Welch, 65, was found by his wife in their home around 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said.

Welch was a guitarist and vocalist for the British-American rock group from 1971 to 1975. He then went on to form another group called Paris in 1976 and eventually embarked on a solo music career.

Police said that Welch had had health issues recently and left a suicide note.
