This week we were saddened to hear of the passing of another rock legend. The great Butch Trucks, drummer for the Allman Brothers Band, has died at 69. He passed away on Tuesday January 24th. Butch was an original member of  the band since 1969 and played drums through their farewell shows in 2014.

From the band's website:

"Butch Trucks, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, tragically died the night of January 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida. His wife, four children, four grandchildren and all of the Allman Brothers Band, their families and Road Crew survive Butch. The Trucks and Allman Brothers Band families request all of Butch’s friends and fans to please respect our privacy at this time of sadness for our loss. Butch will play on in our hearts forever."

Donations and remembrances in Butch’s name may be made to The Big House Museum in Macon, Georgia.

Join us tonight at 6:20 form the Allman Brothers Band live in memory of Butch Trucks on the WBLM Mini-Concert.

Watch Trucks tell great old stories about Duane Allman, the band's little mushroom tattoos, why they are smiling on the cover of the Fillmore East album and more. RIP brother, Butch.


Here's the setlist from (according to our records) the last Portland area show nearly 23 years ago.
