Ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Weston has been found dead at his home in London.

The 64-year-old, who played with the band during the early 1970s, was discovered after local neighbours became concerned and notified the police on Tuesday (January 3).

Police said today (January 6) that his death is not being treated as suspicious and an autopsy revealed that he died from a gastric intestinal hemorrhage, cirrhosis of the liver and throat problems.

Close friend Steve Fairhead wrote on Weston's official website Bobweston.com:

My family and I have lost a dear friend; the world has lost an enormously talented musician, with unfinished business.


Weston joined Fleetwood Mac in 1972, replacing then guitarist Danny Kirwan. He played on the albums 'Penguin' and 'Mystery To Me'.

But the following year, drummer Mick Fleetwood discovered Weston was having an affair with his wife, Jenny Boyd and he was fired from the band.

He went on to release three solo albums, his last effort being his 1999 LP 'There's A Heaven'. Weston also worked with late Small Faces member Steve Marriott, Long John Baldry, Murray Head, and Sandy Denny.
