The Loss of a Brother – Butch Trucks, Allman Brothers Drummer, Dead at 69

Literally just saw this. Words fail me on this one. Butch was partners for the entire run of the ABB with Jaimoe. Butch was the “on-the-beat” drummer, Jaimoe the jazzy one. Butch’s nephew is, of course, Derek Trucks, guitar great. Losing an Allman is for me like losing a family member. (I met some of these guys. Story down the road.) Anyway RIP, Butch. Damn! Sorry. I got nothin’.
