Trucks, one of the founding drummers of the Allman Brothers Band, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on January 24th. He was 69.
"He put 110 percent of himself into every song he played. He was the Lou Gehrig of rock drummers. ...He would play with the utmost intensity till he was about to fall over with no regrets," Allman Brother Band guitarist Warren Haynes said. "His mission in life was to serve the music. And serve the music he did."
