"Danny was a quantum leap ahead of us creatively," Mick Fleetwood once said. "He was a hugely important part of the band."
Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan has died of unknown causes at the age of 68, according to an announcement from band leader Mick Fleetwood.
"Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England," Fleetwood revealed in a post on the band's official Facebook page. "Danny was a huge force in our early years. His love for the blues led him to being asked to join Fleetwood Mac in 1968, where he made his musical home for many years."
