RIP Butch Trucks

Talk tunes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Bummer news to start 2017. The Brothers are down to 3 originals, giving Jaimoe a nod as an original.

Butch was a good man and introduced Derek and Duane to music early in their lives. Thank goodness the Trucks name will live on in the music world.

We won't forget you, Brother Butch.

What an amazing rhythm section they were.

And wasn't Jaimoe a founding member? I think he was there before Trucks or Betts. Not that it matters.

RIP

For some reason those details in print disgust me. I mean, it's probably best that we know these things eventually, but given that it isn't really a public issue/concern...feels gratuitous at the mo'.

That said-
