Celebration of Life - A Memorial Service for Brother Butch
 
Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 - 04:09 PM


Monday, Feb 20, in Macon, Georgia at the Cox Capitol Theatre, Butch Trucks' family and friends held a private memorial service celebrating his life. Memories were shared and stories were told, and it was abundantly clear that Butch had just as profound an impact on people as he did on the music we love so much.

Members of the Allman Brothers Band, Les Brers, the Freight Train Band, Vaylor Trucks and guests performed for us, and the music has never been more poignant. Please continue to send your much appreciated love to the Trucks family, and let Butch's passion and drive inspire you to reach ever higher in your daily lives.

New York Social Diary

Thursday night October 3 the 18th annual Rita Hayworth Gala was held in the Grand Ballroom at the Waldorf in New York City. The story of the inception of this gala is well known. Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Miss Hayworth’s daughter by Prince Aly Khan, started this fund-raiser in memory of her famous mother who contracted Alzheimer’s very early in her life – her symptoms although undiagnosed for a long time began to be apparent when she was in her late 30s.

Yasmin and her friends (who call her “Yazzy”) have raised more than $33 million for the Alzheimer’s Association, which since 1982 has given $136 million in research grants for the disease.

This annual gala is one of the glitziest, more glamorous events on the New York social calendar. Each year they feature one of Hayworth’s films as the theme. This year it was the classic Hayworth made under the direction of her then husband (before Aly Khan), Orson Welles – “The Lady From Shanghai.”

This year, under the chairmanship of Andrea Stark, they raised more than $1.4 million for the cause. Corporate chair was Paulo Costa, President and CEO of Novartis Pharmaceuticals. Muffie Potter Aston was Corporate Sponsor Chair. Deborah Norville was emcee. Donna Dixon Aykroyd, Claudia Cohen and Susan Hess were auction co-chairs. Della Rounick was Journal Chair and Milly, Baronne de Cabrol was the Gift Bag Chair. These people, mainly women, have created one of the most dynamic philanthropic events in New York.

This year they honored Margo Catsimatidis and Butch Trucks, the drummer for the Allman Brothers Band. Mrs. Catsimatidis was the chair of the 1998 Gala and has been a vital force of the Rita Hayworth Gala since joining the Steering Committee in 1992. Claude “Butch” Trucks Jr. was given a special Caregiver Award. Trucks has been creating rhythms for the legendary band for more than thirty years.

Allman Brothers Band's Rocking Spirit Lives On

Baltimore Sun

A bunch of miles, a lot of heartache and a ton of rocking can drain the spirit from a band. And so it was with the Allman Brothers. But the Southern rock pioneers are happy to report that the magic is back.

Tonight, drummer Butch Trucks promises, the band will hit Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion with an energy the founding members haven't felt since the beginning, way back around 1969.
