Hey there Brothers & Sisters...it is with a heavy heart that I feel compelled to return here once more. Still have not come to terms with the event that has taken place just 31 days ago. Had to look back on some of the "saved" PM discussions that Mr. Trucks and I had back before the 2009 Beacon run (kinda eerie). Lord knows Mr. Trucks & I had our differences regarding the fans point of view. He was a friend that allowed me to disagree, an interesting character and always a brother. My heartfelt well wishes go out to all of the brotherhood, the Trucks family and especially Melinda.
Peach,
Tony

Great to see old names here, takes a storm to get heads peeking out of windows... Tragedy Deluxe, it all has been said of late.... RIP.... and unsaid....

Optimism is hoping Gregg and Dickey meet in the woods somewhere with box guitars and rediscover..... that would be I guess an ironic but yet beautiful Butch last gift from this... daydreams here we know....

It's been a minute since I checked in here...

Sending much peace and love to all here on this sad week.

Listening to the new Duane show and it is a comfort, however chilly.

All my heart goes out to the Trucks family.

I've not been here for a long time but wanted to leave my condolences. Such a tragedy on many levels. RIP Butch. I pray that he's found peace.

My heart hurts so badly for Melinda. I'll continue to pray for her.

Regarding the tragic passing of Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks, I would just like to express my sentiments in regards to artist and wife Melinda Trucks, who had to endure this most painful episode in her life- by herself-helpless and alone-in his presence, when he took his life.

When I heard this news my heart immediately went out to Melinda. I met Melinda Trucks back in May 1989. I was a nervous young man that day as she opened the door and invited me into her and Butch's recording Studio Pegasus down in Tallahassee. I was there that day to audition for the reunion of the Allman Brothers Band. When I walked into main room and saw the likes of Andy West of the Dixie Dregs and Willie Weeks, I almost ran out of the building wondering "what I was doing there the amongst these Titans of bass guitar?" But Melinda was the kindest Angel to appear in my life that day. She invited me into their private quarters, I believe she made me tea and gave me a tour behind the scenes of this huge amazing studio facility. What was very peaceful and settling was her kindness in sharing with me a private viewing of many of her oil paintings-one of which was the life-size original of the cover of the Allman Brothers album 'Reach for the Sky'! She really made me feel at home and for the remainder of the day she continued to smile upon me. On many occasions after that day I would see her backstage on the tours and she was always kind and sweet as ever. So when I heard about this tragedy the other day my head and my heart went directly Melinda who tragically had to witness this horrific incident by herself. I said a prayer for Butch asking God to Grant him final rest and I also each day send prayers and warm thoughts of love, comfort, and support to my old friend Melinda Trucks. May Peace and Strength be with you Melinda. Butch was blessed to have shared his life with you!... Love Tommy Booth

Thinking of the Trucks family. Praying for them.
Thinking of all the people that I have met as shows.
Trading music. Thinking about traveling to George,Washington, Morrison, Colorado, New York City and all across the south to see The Band. It is very sad but trying to remember the good times.

The GB was my 1st exposure to this site....I'm thinking back in 2000/01 time frame. B2P was the 1st real magical thing that happened to me via this place.

I've met ONLY wonderful people as a result of this band and this place. I've been to Wanee twice/countless shows and never had a cross word with a soul....over at least 12 states and many trips. the music has always been the common thread.

This band is MY band. Allman Brothers posters decorate my home. My kids...16/13/9....the soundtrack of their lives....its our music.

I never met Butch. I've met everyone else in the band along the way, if only a handshake.

I'm a 45 yr old father of 3, guitar collector, ABB/Duane/Warren/Derek freak....lover of all things Allman Brothers. It truly affects my life daily and I'm proud of it. Im the guy who went to the Beacon/Red Rocks/All those Chicago shows...t0 see OUR BAND...every time i could.

I'm a regular guy. I smoke pot. I'm 45. I love mushrooms I love my wife. I ate booms at most of the 40+ ABB show I attended.,,,.,,Trying to convey perspective.

I love Butch Trucks. I love Jaimoe. I love Marc, and Gregg, and Derek...all of them. This BREAKS my heart. What the *****.

I'll never apologize for ANY of that.

I'm not really sure what I'm trying to get across...except there were many years of my life where this place....and this band....brought immeasurable happiness to my life

our FRIENDS, the Allman Brothers Band....crushed it nightly and took me to places I can only describe.

Butch was there from day one. I'm saddened by his death. I felt I knew him thru MOOGIS and his many posts...he was so transparent along the way.

Thanks for constantly BRINGING IT, Butch. THANKS for bringing it with passion, grace, and attitude. thamks for never giving a *****.

Thanks for being our FREIGHT TRAIN.

Rest in Peace, my friend.....
