    I saw that. When was I younger the Allman Bros were an influence, now not so much. Dogspeed

    I was listening to XM this morning and they were talking about it, then they did something sort of almost offensive, They played a Tedeschi-Trucks Band tune (Its So Heavy) Not the same Truck. He did play with the Allman Bros, but no relation to Butch.

    The old Allman Bros. Band of Brothers and Sisters and the Fillmore East Concerts was great, the revived version of aging rockers was pathetic. Was he in the latter one? Even so, I'll still pour a sip.

    Derek Trucks was born in 79, by then the Allman Bros were way past their peak. I believe Derek played with them (what was left of them) until recently.

    Butch was a founding member.

    Derek is Butch's nephew. I agree that playing a Tedeschi-Trucks band song is wrong.

    Seems he shot himself in the head, in front of his wife. Not good.

    Live at Fillmore East and Eat a Peach are great albums.

    Really sad that Butch committed suicide in front of his wife. What an awful thing to do to her.

    Obviously Butch had some issues.
