This week on The Blues, Saturday evening, October 19th at 11pm, you'll hear music from Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Amos Lee, and the Honey Island Swamp Band in the first set. Later in the show, you'll hear songs by Jeff Black, the Allman Brothers, and Cincinnati guitarist Scotty Anderson.
Allman Brothers Band co-founder Butch Trucks passed away Tuesday night, January 24th, in West Palm Beach, Florida, at the age of 69. He was the third member of the original Allman Brothers Band to pass away. Guitarist Duane Allman died in 1971 and bassist Berry Oakley a little over a year later. The band including Butch Trucks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
Here's a link to an article from the May 30th edition of Guitar Player Magazine about Gregg Allman who passed away on May 27th at the age of 69. The first time I saw the Allman Brothers was in the early 1970's at Reflections on Calhoun Street. He was a legend who'll be missed.
