Butch Trucks leaves town...
Wednesday, January 25 2017 @ 09:46 PM CST



Trucks has passed, this clip is insightful. Lots of Butch on the internet, both teaching and recalling strange times. Best straight ahead percussionist? Maybe? With fellow Allman Brother's drummer Jaimo, Trucks was part of the most influential rhythm section in the world.

Excellent interview, including insightful commentary about Jimmy Carter and President Obama, as well as history and reflections on drumming:

The NY Daily News reports Butch Trucks committed suicide. There is speculation in
the story Trucks was in financial difficulties. He was 69. Sad.
