Butch Trucks

RIP Butch Trucks, one of the drummers in the Allman Brothers Band.

If you don't recognize the musicians, that's Butch wearing the blue Moogis t-shirt.  His nephew, Derek, in the plaid shirt, is playing slide guitar.  So much talent in one family, and there are other family members who are also musicians.

I was fortunate enough to see the Allman Brothers Band twice:  first in Columbia, Maryland in 2012 and then in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2013.  Both shows were fabulous.  I wish I could have been to more shows before they disbanded in 2014, but, thankfully, the music lives on.  Watch the video in full screen, turn up the volume, and enjoy.
