Bob Welch RIP - August 31, 1945 – June 7, 2012

Sentimental Lady was originally recorded on Fleetwood Mac's album Bare Trees.  A more polished version was included on his solo album French Kiss.

This was Welch's biggest hit.  You can hear Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham doing backup vocals.

Another very popular song written by Bob Welch while he was with Fleetwood Mac was Hypnotized.

Mr. Welch gave his wife the last gift he would ever be able to give her when he took his own life to spare her the pain of having to care for him while he slowly died.
These things tend to come in threes.  First Doc Watson, now Bob Welch.  I wonder who's next.
