You know, Bob had always been so friendly, both on his website and Facebook. I often fantasized about inviting him and Wendy out to dinner, when I was in town. But never did, because I figured he might think, "Oh, just some crazy fan....".

Sad news...I hadn't heard that Bob had health issues. Always enjoyed reading his posts here on the Ledge, infrequent as they were. I actually see that his last post here was about Bob Weston's passing earlier this year.

It was the Bob Welch-led version of the band that I first heard, back when Heroes are Hard to Find was their current release and was on the radio. Got into the earlier versions of the band pretty quickly after that, but I have to thank Bob for providing my intro to Fleetwood Mac. RIP Bob.

This hurts my heart... He was always very nice to me and one of my favorite singers.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

RIP, Bob. Your music meant, and will always mean, a lot to me.

He apparently didn't live very far from me...

I always wanted to reach out to him and have coffee and talk but I never could work up the nerve to ask.

I'm just totally stunned.

I can't put into words how hard this just hit me. Only last week I was talking about him with Shawna and how his era is my favourite. Rest In Peace, Bob. You'll be sadly missed.

Very sad, he was really generous of heart with fans on Facebook. Homie, sorry to hear you didn't extend invitation but it is really hard to do that when you think it might be rejected. Maybe send something to Wendy. Thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.

His work makes his my favorite era of FM, too. Rest in peace, Bob.

I am so sorry to hear/read of the loss of Bob. The first real picture of his personality came through to me here on The Penguin. The two Q&As he did with all the fans are amazing. Steve, not sure if you heard about this yet, but I already know you will take this loss hard with quite a few others here. Clearly Bob Welch respected and enjoyed you in particular-- and I think he loved interacting directly with the fans. He got to tell his story of Fleetwood Mac without any editing. I'm glad that he got to do that here.

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.

This is just mind-boggling. My jaw is hanging wide-open from shock.

How very, very sad.

I can't believe it... I just got home and saw Fleetwood Mac trending on Twitter. I thought it might have something to do with a new tour or something... but not this... This is so sad that it's beyond words...
