Another great one has passed
Tragic, especially when someone's in a dark place they can't get out of.
I always wonder how bad it must get to bring someone to that place? I feel sorry for his family and especially his wife who witnessed it. I saw them perform several times. Twice when Barry and Duane were still alive. A excellent live band. RIP Butch
Such a nice, gentle and intelligent man, too. Remarkably well-read and able to intelligently discuss John Locke and T.S. Eliot. He talked about how he was plagued with self-doubt but Duane Allman, who didn't have much patience with self-doubt, dragged him out of it and pushed him to fulfill his potential. Duane's death clearly left a big hole in a lot of lives.
all the best,
A great one! R.I.P.
I got the chance to meet Butch Trucks recently when he and Alan Paul, author of an excellent book about the Allman Brothers Band called One Way Out, appeared and spoke at a bookstore owned by a college classmate of mine who also happens to be a friend and neighbor of Alan Paul.
He couldn't have been nicer, or more intelligent and articulate. They patiently answered questions, and of course signed my copy of the book. Trucks also autographed my copy of At Fillmore East and was surprised and interested in the original inner sleeve which he had apparently never seen.
