The drummer and co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood, has said he wants to make at least one more album before they "shut up shop".
In an interview with Absolute Radio, Fleetwood said: “I don’t know whether it is five years or seven years or it could be eighteen months. I hope that whenever that happens that it is done gracefully".
The band have been going for almost 50 years and recently toured Britain before embarking upon a series of European dates.
Bob Welch, an early member of rock band Fleetwood Mac who enjoyed a successful solo career with hits such as "Ebony Eyes," has died of an apparent suicide at home in Nashville, police said.
"Officers discovered Mr. Welch with a single gunshot wound to the chest," Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron told Reuters.
"There was a suicide note found at the residence.
"Mr. Welch had health issues. The police are investigating it as a suicide, and there was no evidence of foul play."
Welch, 66, was found by his wife.
He played guitar and was a vocalist with Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974, before the band found its largest measure of fame on albums such as 1977's "Rumours" after Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the group.
