Veteran keyboardist and guitarist who played with Fleetwood Mac, David Lee Roth, Rick Springfield, and many other rockers, Brett Tuggle passed away on Sunday (June 19, 2022) at the age of
Springfield tweeted the news Sunday, sharing several photos of himself and Tuggle throughout the years. “Our sweet Brett Tuggle made it home tonight,” he wrote. “God bless his beautiful spirit.”
Tuggle grew up in Denver and gravitated toward the keyboard early, starting piano lessons in first grade. He told Rolling Stone the Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin'” was a revelation, and he eventually got a used Hammond organ to emulate the sound.
His first big career move came in 1970 when he went on tour with Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels and recreated guitar on the 1971 album Detroit, recorded under the moniker Detroit Featuring Mitch Ryder.
Tuggle’s career as a sideman began in earnest in 1981, when he went on tour with John Kay and Steppenwolf. The gig lasted roughly a year, at which point Tuggle began working with Springfield, who was riding high off the astronomical success of “Jessie’s Girl.”
“We really set out to conquer the world back in 1982,” Tuggle informed Rolling Stone. “Some of the best memories of my life are of playing with Rick and his band. It was such a great band.”

Tuggle was dismissed from Fleetwood Mac in 2018 after 21 years of service. He stated he believed it was because Nicks thought he was too close to the recently ousted Buckingham. “In the end, I think, Stevie thought I was more in Lindsey’s camp,” he resumed. “But I tried to be Switzerland to all the principles in the Mac. I felt like that was my job.”
