Rest in Peace, Danny Kirwan
 
Sad news. From Fleetwood Mac's Facebook page:

DANNY KIRWAN
MAY 13, 1950 ~ JUNE 8, 2018
A TRIBUTE FROM
MICK FLEETWOOD AND FLEETWOOD MAC

Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England. Danny was a huge force in our early years. His love for the Blues led him to being asked to join Fleetwood Mac in 1968, where he made his musical home for many years.

Dannyís true legacy, in my mind, will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac, that has now endured for over fifty years.
Thank you, Danny Kirwan. You will forever be missed!
~Mick Fleetwood and Fleetwood Mac

Devastated to hear this news as Danny is one of my fave FM members. I wish he could have gotten more help. We've had just WAY too much loss lately. :(

RIP Danny :(

Oh, GOD!
:distress:

I'm shaking as I type, so please excuse typos.

This one hurts...big time.

I didn’t realize that Danny was only 18/19 years old when he joined Fleetwood Mac. That’s interesting. He was actually younger than Lindsey and Stevie.

Agreed. :distress: Going to play the '69-'72 series of albums as soon as possible and crank Jewel Eyed Judy as loud as I can.

sodascouts 06-08-2018 09:23 PM

Oh no! What happened?

So sorry to hear this!

Talented guitarist. Bare Trees has some great licks


The Stevie of a death strikes once. Maybe twice.

Thanks Danny, your music marks my seasons.

My sincerest condolences go out to any Fleetwood Mac fan who is affected by this sad news.:angel:

Only Billy, Bekka, Mike (by a couple of months) and Neil are younger.

RIP, beautiful Danny. Your gifts to us are treasured and appreciated more than you ever realised.

I hope that you are now at peace on the Sunny Side...

R.I.P. Danny. You were truly one of the great songwriters instilling emotional depth to your beautiful songs.
