Butch Trucks, drummer...

...and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, died at age 69. (Bad day for '70s sitcom stars and classic rock bands!)

From his New York Times obit (my emphasis):

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last year, Mr. Trucks said the Allman Brothers Band had started out only wanting to play the music its members loved, never counting on stardom.

“We were out spreading the gospel of this music we had discovered,” he said. “We never thought that we would be more than an opening act.”
