Thank you, Danny Kirwan.

Kirwan joined following the release of the band's second album, Mr Wonderful, with his first appearance on the No 1 single Albatross.

Fleetwood said in a Facebook post that Kirwan died on Friday in London.

Danny was picked to joined the band by drummer and co-found of the group Mick Fleetwood. No cause of death has been announced.

In the band's Facebook post, Fleetwood hailed Kirwan's legacy and said it "will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac".

His first recorded work reached the US on the 1969 compilation album "English Rose", which included the band's chart-topping United Kingdom instrumental "Albatross" and its B side, Kirwan's composition "Jigsaw Puzzle Blues". Kirwan played, sang and wrote songs for four of the band's albums between 1969-1972, including Bare Trees, for which he was the principal songwriter. "You will be forever missed!" For their sixth album, 1972's Bare Trees, Green and Spencer were long gone, replaced by Bob Welch and Christine McVie.

Kirwan left Fleetwood Mac in 1972 after a falling out with the other members of the band. Despite the departure, he chose to stay in music and went on to release four solo albums.

In 1993, it was revealed that Danny was living in a hostel in London, after his former bandmates asked the Missing Persons Bureau to track him down.

In 1998, Kirwan became one of the eight members of Fleetwood Mac to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, however he did not attend the ceremony, according to Rolling Stone.

He told the Independent at the time: 'I get by and I suppose I am homeless, but then I've never really had a home since our early days on tour.
