Day 164: Bob Welch - The Ghost of Flight 401
Ex-Fleetwood Mac member and smooth solo rocker Bob Welch passed away over the weekend. This morbid number seems an appropriate epitaph today. It’s also one of my favorite songs of his. Although this short promotional video was created for the song, the song was never actually released as a single. It’s taken from his 1979 album Three of Hearts, which was produced by John Carter, excepting this track which was produced by Fleetwood Mac producer Richard Dashut. If we follow Welch’s logic here, we may hope to see him again wherever smooth music is played.
