RIP Butch Trucks

butch-trucks_53

I was so sad to hear of the passing of Butch Trucks. He was an incredible drummer and a really kind person. For me, Butch’s voice was as integral a part of the Allman Brother’s sound as Gregg’s, Duane’s, or any of the other great musicians that played over the years. He had a unique way of leaning hard into the bell of the cymbal and his own identifiable attack on the snare. He had an angular aggressive lope that was really unique. No one sounded like him. I’ve always been a firm believer in the huge impact that the drummer has on any great band, and that was certainly true in the case of Butch and the Allman’s. Rest In Peace, Butch. Thank you for your gift. – Trey
