Have Tissues Ready…

It was a truly sad day in rock history when we first heard of the sudden passing of former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan. It’s well known that Danny played a huge role in Fleetwood Mac’s early and continued success, despite leaving in 1972. Simply put, without Danny, there would be no Fleetwood Mac, at least not the one we know and love today. He was a pillar in the world of rock & roll, pure and simple.
