Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan has died, according to a statement from the band.

Fleetwood writes that Kirwan's legacy "will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac".

Fleetwood said it was Kiran's "love for the blues" that led him to the band. It was authored by drummer Mick Fleetwood, who reflected on Kirwan's stint as a guitarist during the group's formative years.

His first recorded work reached the USA 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".

Thank you, Danny Kirwan.

A founding member of the band confirmed the news on Friday evening.

Announcing his death in London today, the band wrote: "Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England". You will forever be missed!

Kirwan is survived by his only son.

Kirwan was sacked in 1972 shortly after the release of the album "Bare Trees".

According to Variety, no details surrounding his death are immediately available. Mac co-founder Peter Green offered Boilerhouse the opportunity to open for the band and ultimately Mick Fleetwood persuaded Green and bandmates John McVie and Jeremy Spencer to add Kirwan to the Blues band's lineup in August 1968.

In 1972, during the tour for Bare Trees, Danny was let go due to his struggles with substance abuse.

His most recent work involved three solo albums which were given a belated CD release in February 2006, but only in Japan.

He remained estranged from his former band mates, and failed to appear when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998.
