One of the Allman Brothers Band’s founding drummers, died Tuesday evening in West Palm Beach, Florida.

“Today we lost a Brother and the music world lost a great, innovative drummer and part of rock history,” Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes said in a statement.

Jamoe once asked Duane Allman why he wanted two drummers in the group, according to the Allman Brothers biography One Way Out, and the guitarist referenced Otis Redding and James Brown’s dual-drummer bands.

Almost three years later, they would form the Allman Brothers Band.

After the group’s breakup, Butch played gigs under his own name and formed a new group, Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band.

The group had shows already booked for this spring, though Butch would play what would be his last show on January 6th. “In an interview with Rolling Stone last year, Trucks reflected on the Allman Brothers Band’s unexpected status as headliners.”We were in another universe,” he said.
