Derek remembers his uncle and band-mate with his typical eloquence. I didn't realize that Butch's dad is still alive.

I know this has been said before, but this is so sad. Best wishes to Derek, Susan and the extended Truck Family.

Very sad and I don't know if anyone else feels this, but I'm having a bit of a delayed reaction to it. Like I forget about it for a few hours during the day and then it will hit me again.

Derek should be doing the Dos Equis beer ads because HE is the most interesting man in the world. I have met and spoken with him 3 times and he is generous and genuine, what you see is who he is. Derek is a wise and talented gentleman.....That was a tremendous tribute to his Uncle and Grandfather. Butch just loved the Allman Brothers Band....Long live Butch Trucks!

Thanks for posting that. Derek is the one I was most waiting to hear from. What a beautiful, intelligent and informative tribute. Love this quote:

Butch was a rock drummer, but the melody was always there. He was always thinking of the rise and fall, the dynamic range. He was the heart in the engine, and Jaimoe was the mystery and color. Butch was holding down the fort while Jaimoe was doing the exploring. And when they got onstage, they never had to talk about it. I don't think I ever witnessed them, in the years I was there, talk about what each other was going to play. It was a relationship that worked, and they didn't have to speak about it. It was just show up: "Oh, cool, it's my friend and brother. Let's do it." It always felt that way.

Such a cool perspective, tribute, remembrance.- thanks for letting us in Derek.

"He was certainly having second thoughts after we decided to end the band [in 2014]. In theory, he was ready when we brought it up, three or four years before."

Remarks: Butch was having second thoughts when "we" brought it up three or four years before? So shortly after Dickey got ousted, Derek and at least one other member brought up the idea of ending the band? Duane did not want his band to end. He and Warren could have exited and left the rest intact with the band finding suitable replacements for them. That is what I think should have happened.

Butch had even said after the fax, they (the band) never intended to fire Dickey, when they called Jimmy Herring in, they just intended to replace him for the tour and they thought Dickey would return after the summer. Dickey seemed to believe they were lieing and that's when it all started to get nasty. Butch did not want the band to break up, and I don't think Gregg did either, or Otiel, or Jaimoe. [all of this came out on the Green site, the old website before this one].

Derek was there to build his chops and get ready to leave the nest, Warren had his other band waiting that he loves, so it is understandable they would not be there forever.

Did people really expect that they would be there forever?

The band should not have broken up because those two needed to move on. That's what I am saying. The others gave up too soon.

I am also very sorry for Derek's loss. I am also happy that he is home where he needs to be with his own band. It is his band, because he and Susan are one joined musical force. The cosmos put him in ABB because it owed him something for his dedication to the music and the misery he lived through before getting the recognition he deserves that he has now. We have witnessed his evolution and that is how it should have been for him. He moved on when he needed to.

Wow, that's quite a bit of revisionist history. Gina, suggest you get a pencil and paper and write out a timeline of events. You are off by a decade on some of that. Not even sure what to make of it.

In any event, great piece by Rolling Stone. Enjoyed reading that, despite the sad topic of discussion.

I went to Derek's interview for the timeline. So I am not sure what you mean by revisionist history. I did think it was a really good interview as everyone else has.

Dickey got ousted in 2000. In Derek's timeline 3 or four years before they ended the band would be 2010 or 2011. A decade or more after Dickey got the boot, not shortly after.
