Longtime percussionist for Aquarium Rescue Unit and Derek Trucks Band passed away Sunday, July 25th.  We've lost a lot of folks close to or apart of the family the past few years.  RIP the Count:

Just so hard for me to fathom that no less than three members of The Derek Trucks Band have already departed this earth.  RIP Count!

Saw the Count play with the DTB many times. He was a gentleman to speak to and a great percussionist. Another sad lose!
