About this Artist
DEREK TRUCKS’ slide-guitar playing is second to none. He has fronted The Derek Trucks Band for over 15 years, been the slide guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band for more than ten, toured the world with Eric Clapton, and was featured on the cover of the 2007 Rolling Stone “New Guitar Gods” issue. Combine that with Trucks’ 6th studio album release, Already Free, debuting at No. 19 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and taking home the 2010 Grammy for “Best Contemporary Blues Album” and it’s no wonder why he is the youngest musician to date to make Rolling Stones’ list of “Top 100 Guitarists of All Time.”
Together, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are unquestionably the most formidable husband/wife team in the history of southern rock and blues music.
