A statement from Oteil Burbridge on his departure from the Tedeschi Trucks Band:
"After 25 years of intensive touring, I have come to the very difficult decision that I must cut my yearly tour schedule back and will not be able to continue to tour with TTB. This much needed break from heavy touring will allow me to recoup, recharge and address my main priority in life right now, which is to start a family. I have deep love and respect for every member of this band and the music that we have made together, and I'm proud of our many accomplishments over the last three years. I certainly hope that we have music left to make together in the future."

Good luck to Oteil. It sounds like he has his priorities right. He will be missed.

Sucks. He can not be replaced, Derek and his interplay can not be duplicated.

Tedeschi Trucks statement:

"We are sad to see our brother Oteil leave TTB but we want what is best for every member of our family, and we respect Oteil's decision to make a change. We've had many amazing shows and sessions with him over the years, documented by two albums we're very proud of. We wish Oteil the best and look forward to the next time we can share the stage.

We have reached out to our extended family of musicians and confirmed three great bass players for the fall. Ted Pecchio will play on the shows Oct 18-20. Dave Monsey Oct 27 - Nov 3. And George Porter Jr Nov 27 - Dec 2."

Now if we can just get Smallie, Rico and the Count on stage we will have DTB back.

This is shocking, and w/ basically 2 weeks notice, I can't help but think there is something more to this. I can't imagine what it might be though. All the best to Oteil.

WOW, I'm shocked, but if the reason behind this is Oteil starting a family, then I'm happy for him, BUT.....

With less than 10 dates in what's left of the year you'd think that he'd finish the tour before starting to build a family, I just hope that he's ok and that it really is just because he wants to have a family and fulfill his goals.

Too bad as the brothers were a big part of what I like about the TTB.

It does seem sudden and with only a handful of dates, it does make you wonder.

I would love to catch one of those Porter shows though. That man can fill anyone' shoes.

Todd was the first person that I thought of as soon as I read this on twitter, I do hope we hear about who's filling Oteil's shoes soon.

Todd Smallie was the DTB bass line for years. He is now with JJ Grey and Mofro.

My oldest closest long time friend got to be big buddies with Oteil when he was living here in Bham - if you research it up, he's the completely unknown non professional musician that sat in with the Brothers at Wanee a few years ago.

I talked to him today and he had talked to Oteil recently - I don't think there is much more to it than what's been announced. The touring lifestyle has got Oteil a bit beat up/beat down.
