    I had no clue this happened, and I feel a great loss in the music side of my life. I LOVED this group when I was a teen, and I continue to listen to the songs they had out in the mid-late 70's and early 80's. Such a sad thing.....RIP Bob.

    Oh, that is really sad.

    Sad :( I love Fleetwood Mac. Anytime someone feels like they're life is so pointless and will never get better so they take they're own life is sad. Especially when they are as talented as Bob

    How sad. R.I.P. Fleetwood Mack was a great group. I was a little girl when they were kicking butt in the music business, but I remember shaking my little bootie to their tunes. I would have loved to see them in person.

    This sounds suspicious.

    Why? Failing health causes people to do weird things. I would not want my family to have to watch me die but I would not commit suicide either.

    When I hear a story of a celebrity dying strangely, or committing suicide, I can never but to wonder if it was foul play, like John Lennon.
