Drummer Butch Trucks, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, has died at age 69.

The news comes from his cousin, Lee Trucks, as well as the promoters of the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival, where he was scheduled to perform.

He is the third member of the six founding members to die, after Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.

I’ll follow up when more details emerge.
