Sentimental Lady – Bob Welch (1977)
This American musician, singer, and songwriter was a member of Fleetwood Mac in the early 70’s before parting ways and forming the short-lived power trio Paris. This album marked the debut of a successful solo career, which saw him chart albums into the 80’s. Following recovery from drug addiction, Welch turned his focus to songwriting for others. Fleetwood Mac’s 1998 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame stirred emotions when Welch was omitted despite his key role in their formative years. Despite this controversy, his later releases leveraged his past work with Fleetwood Mac (his last album came out in 2006). Welch committed suicide last week amid chronic health problems. He was 66 years old.
