Greenspan's Body Count: Claude "Butch" Trucks

Digital Music News:
Butch Trucks, drummer and co-founder of the classic rock group Allman Brothers Band, died on Tuesday. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head in his waterfront condo in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Trucks shot himself in front of his wife of 25 years, according to the Daily Mail. Police in West Palm Beach and the group have tried to keep the suicide hidden.


Court records show the late drummer wrestled with financial problems. In 2011, he sold his prized Palm Beach home for $2 million to pay off an $800,000 bank mortgage. Federal records show the IRS hounded Trucks. Last year, the IRS filed two liens against his $500,000 condo. Trucks had to pay additional taxes for 2013 and 2014 with a total over $540,000.
Greenspan's Body Count stands at 259.
