The musician’s son, Matt Tuggle, confirmed the news to Rolling Stone and said his dad died from complications related to cancer.

“He was loved by his family so much,” Matt told the outlet. “His family was with him throughout the entire time of his illness. He was a lovely father. He gave me music in my life.”

Tuggle, who hailed from Denver, Colombia learned about his love of playing the piano at a young age.

He eventually moved to Texas to pursue a career in music. But it wasn’t until 1981 that his talent became common knowledge after he began sharing a stage with John Kay & Steppenwolf.

The following year, Tuggle met Rick Springfield and subsequently joined his band. He spent a few years performing gigs with the “Jessie’s Girl” hitmaker.

Tuggle later joined David Lee Roth and toured with him from 1986 to 1994 making him one of The David Lee Roth Band’s founding members.

The pair co-wrote the 1987 hit, “Just Like Paradise.”

It wasn’t until 1997 that Tuggle’s glittering career led him to Fleetwood Mac. He joined the band during their reunion era for over two decades until 2018. Tuggle was a loose acquaintance of Mick Fleetwood’s after landing a gig for the musician’s band.

After performing with the band for 21 years, Tuggle got an abrupt call saying he was out of the band.

He previously opened up about being dismissed from the band, saying it was because lead singer Stevie Nicks thought he was too close to fired guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.

Brett Tuggle is survived by his son Matt and daughter Michelle.
