Along with Jaimoe, Butch Trucks has been the rhythmic backbone of the Allman Brothers Band for over 30 years. He, Gregg Allman and Jaimoe are the lone original members still with that legendary outfit. He also was instrumental in launching the super-group Frogwings in 1997, which also featured Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge, Jimmy Herring, Derek Trucks, John Popper, Kofi Burbridge and Edwin McCain. Butch has twice joined Phish: for “Possum” on 11/16/95 and for “Funky Bitch” on 11/2/96. Page returned the favor on 3/1/96 (filling in for an ailing Gregg Allman) and 1/26/97 at Allman Brothers shows in New York City.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
