Default Bob Brunning's Passing

The papers are reporting that Bob Brunning has passed away yesterday, at the age of 68. His first wife Sujatin Elspeth Johnson confirmed his death on October 18, 2011, in an email to me. Mr. Brunning had 2 children with Sujatin Johnson, Simon and Rachel.

He also had a son Daniel, with his second wife Halina. He had six grandchildren.

A blogger has prepared a nice tribute to Bob Brunning here: http://www.roybaintonwrites.com/2011...done-gone.html

We've never had to say that before about a member of Fleetwood Mac.

It's depressing that they're getting older. One day we'll have to say it again.

15 more times all-in-all. Probably double that by including members of their solo bands.

RIP Bob.

Bee, couldn't help it, but that sig you have of Lindsey from the Live 1980 album...squint just right and he kinda looks like SpongeBobSquarePants.

Yep, we just lost the first link in the chain. Let's hope it's not a 3 pack.

Rest in peace, Bob.

RIP Bob. While his impact on Fleetwood Mac was minimal, his contribution to British blues over the years was enjoyable.

Thank you so much to Wetcamelfood for getting me into Bob Brunning's music and all those albums that I would never have had the opportunity to hear otherwise.

I have spent many a happy time listening to Brunning Sunflower Blues Band or The De Luxe Blues Band. While they never made it to stardom, they were an excellent band that produced some wonderful music.

The only video I could find that featured BB on bass (somewhere over in the corner)

Not sure if this was know, but I just read this...


"Former Fleetwood Mac and Savoy Brown bassist Bob Brunning has passed away. Brunning died of a heart attack on October 18. The musician was 68 when he passed away. According to Vintage Vinyl News, Brunning was recruited by original Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green but John McVie from the Bluesbreakers was reportedly first offered the job and ended up accepting it a few weeks later. Brunning record "Long Grey Mare" with the group. It ended up on the band's 1968 self-titled debut album. Brunning then briefly joined Savoy Brown before teaching. Brunning performed in several bands over the years. He also wrote over a dozen books, including: Fleetwood Mac: Behind the Masks. "
