Well since Chip said he's never heard or maybe not familiar with the work of Marshall Tucker, I decided I need to get dat s hit straightened up quick. So here's my take on it. The Marshall Tucker Band is a Southern Rock Band out of Spartanburg, South Carolina. They fit squarely in with the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels and Molly Hatchet. The two later paying tribute to Marshall Tucker in songs. (Charlie Daniels - The South's Gonna Do It Again, Molly Hatchet - Gator Country)

Marshall Tucker's music is pure pleasure for me. I can listen them anytime, anyplace. I've paid to see Marshall Tucker probably more than any other band I've seen. I've seen Bob Seger more, but that's because he opened up for so many bands I went to see. It's kinda weird, but not, but I actually detest country music. The old school and new school music. But Southern Rock is part of me. I just love it.

Marshall Tuckers music is a mixture of rock, rhythm and blues, jazz, country, and gospel. It's so smooth and goes down the ears so nicely. That's not to say they don't have kick @ss songs. The boys can play. Toy Caldwell (19471993) was core song writer. His passing was truly a definitive hole in the groups output. In fact after his passing I have not followed them much. Doug Gray (vocalist) has a truly amazing and iconic voice. Very distinctive and compliments the southern sound. George McCorkle (flutist), yes flutist added to the distinctive sounds they put out. Paul Riddle (drummer) is one of the best out there. He carried the band on some great rhythms and funky beats at times. Tommy Caldwell (Bassist), Toy's Brother was typical reserved, stand to the side musician that also carried a great rhythm for the band.

Just watch this interview to show how cool, laid back and friendly these guys were.
