Ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch has been found dead at his Nashville home. He was 65.

According to police, the musician died of an apparent suicide. Local news network WKRN reports that Welch's wife found him dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest at 12.15pm local time earlier today (June 7).

Police spokesperson Don Aaron said that a suicide note was recovered and added that Welch had recently been suffering from 'health issues'.

Born in Los Angeles in 1946, Welch was a member of Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974, playing on five albums with the group. When he left the band, he was replaced by Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

Welch formed the band Paris in 1975 and released two albums with the group, before going on to release his first solo record, 'French Kiss', in 1977. The album featured a version of the song 'Sentimental Lady', which had originally been recorded for Fleetwood Mac's 1972 album, 'Bare Trees'.

He went on to release a host more solo albums, his last being 1999's 'Bob Welch Looks At Bop'.
