  • Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan dies aged 68

His sensuous and lyrical guitar on the hit Albatross helped drive the hit to the top of the charts in 1968 and is still regarded as a classic.

The musician was 68-years-old. "Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England", Mick wrote on the page. The original United Kingdom release included seven Kirwan compositions; however, two of the songs were dropped for the album's US release on Reprise, the band's first for the label.

Thank you, Danny Kirwan.

In the band's Facebook post, Fleetwood hailed Kirwan's legacy and said it "will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac".

However, at around the same time, while on tour in Germany, the group attended a party where Kirwan and Green reportedly took LSD laced with a powerful ingredient that, according to Fleetwood and McVie, apparently caused significant changes in their behavior for years to come. You will forever be missed!,' he added.

As a teenager, Kirwan's band Boilerhouse supported Fleetwood Mac at venues in London before he was invited to join the group itself in 1968. He went on to release four solo albums, but his once-bright career was dimmed by years of mental illness and homelessness. Mick asked the Missing Person Bureau to look for Danny when he couldn't be found and in a rare interview with The Independent in 1993, Danny talked about not having a home.

"I've been through a bit of a rough patch", the broke and homeless Kirwan told an interviewer after being tracked down.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 as part of Fleetwood Mac.

"I couldn't handle it all mentally", he said of his former stardom, "I can't settle".
