Just saw this on a blog of a vintage guitar seller friend. Don't know any details.
That's very sad news. He's been one of my favourite players for over 40 years - his vibrato is among the very best. Mick Fleetwood says some nice things here:
Great player and writer.
Thanks Danny...You've brought a lot of joy to these old ears and jaded heart.
It's too bad that only music buffs like ourselves will ever know and appreciate the work of this great musician. I always thought Danny was a turbulent, restless soul with immense talent which could not be contained. RIP Danny Kirwan
That’s sad. A troubled soul, but one of the greatest guitarists of his generation.
Count me among those who were captivated by his playing from the very start. He had a creative touch that was unmatched.
Kirwan and Green live could make time stand still. Kirwan played with power, grace and finesse. A distinctive voice. RIP Danny.
Very sad...such an unlikely story, the fate of the 3 original Fleetwood Mac guitarists
Very sad news...I remember playing the heck out of Bare Trees when it came out...sad to hear of his passing....
My tribute to Danny and Bob today is going to be putting on the Future Games CD and turning it up!
Another irreplaceable master gone forever.
Thanks Danny! RIP BRO!
When dating the eventual Mrs Deeve mid 81, I spotted a couple FM discs in her stereo cab, among them Bare Trees.
Even IF they were her xbf's, I saw this as a good omen, and an indicator of good taste.
So far, so good.
Rest in Peace, Danny
Thanks for sharing your gifts. Rest in Peace, Danny.
Saw Danny Kirwan with the original F.Mac in late 1969 @ the Boston Tea Party, with Greenie, Spencer, McVie and Fleetwood , they were great!!! The opening band was Joe Cocker & Grease Band. Each band alternated 2 long sets. Those were da days ! RIP Danny...
One is still alive (though dosed by the Ammon Dul cult which exacerbated his bi-polarness), one still plays very well but is a pedant/creep, and one died in his late 60's after decades of self-abuse.
Fairly run of the mill.
Kirwan held the early Green-less Mac together with great songs and great playing and Bob Welch deserves credit for holding them together through a pretty fallow period song-wise (a couple great exceptions).
In my dream of dreams, they'd dig into a few songs from that in-between period (maybe a medley) with the new Campbell/Finn lineup.
I know I'm going to be disappointed though...
Rest easy Danny !
Great tribute song from swedish group The Amazing
