Who is going to be in the new Derek Trucks Band?

I am very excited to know.

I guess this is still not formally announced or decided? what is the expectation or is their any chatter here?

I am really not up to date.

thanks MG........

I just knew it was still foggy or undecided.

bass and drums........many great great choices out there.

oh - I had a band called The North Bound Train........but it was not a Dead cover band, we played the song and loved the quote though.

my female instincts tell me Kofi and Oteil as the "Bur-Bur Brothers" will fill some of the rhythm section........the new drummer is the game changer for me!!

I wish they would stretch beyond their circle of friends, as Clapton and Beck have done. I think Derek and Susan are enough of a draw, especially in the current economic climate, to get some true world class musicians for a couple of one-off gigs. Deitch, Krasno, and the others are good players, but IMO not up to Derek's level.

Maybe not technically, but those guys play all the right stuff at all the right times. Their groove is not to be reckoned with. You showcase Derek on top of a rhythm section with Deitch & Krasno at the helm and... wow.



I saw Krasno sit in 3 years ago at the Beacon and felt he was woefully overmatched

I understand the sentiment about stretching outside their circle of friends. But at the same time, Sipe is A-list on drums. Not saying he's the best out there, but there's not anyone "better". He is certainly up to Derek's level. Plus, the chemistry with Sipe is there with all of them, and it's proven. Sipe has played with DTB before Rico, was in ARU and a pre-ARU fusion band with Kofi & Otei, and was in Susan's band. My money would be on Sipe being a part of the traveling Susan & Derek band on at least a few dates.

I think some people tend to disregard players they know very little about. I'd heard much of Jeff Sipe, but never saw him, outside of a random Susan T show, until a couple of summers ago. I saw Sipe play at a small bar in Va.Beach with Jimmy Herring and Bobby Lee Rodgers. I witnessed one of the finest drummers I've ever seen. There would be nobody more qualified to play drums in any Derek Trucks project.

Interesting thing about Sipe is that if you ask other drummers (I'm not a drummer) they all will talk about his right-hand technique being unbelievable. What's interesting to me as a non-drummer is how many drummers talk about that same aspect to Sipe's playing. What I've always found interesting about his playing is that if you don't listen in on exactly what he's doing, you don't notice him. He's just a solid metronome. But if you pay attention to what he's playing, and key in on him, it's like a friggin' drum solo going on with everything he's doing. He's a "busy" player without sounding "busy" or taking away from the music.

Here's a great one to watch/listen to:
