He was the blind piano tuner who gave the Marshall Tucker Band its name.
Even though he was never a band member, the South Carolina-based band writes on social media that Tucker has died,
The band explains, back in their early days, they found a keychain with Tucker’s name on it in a warehouse where they were rehearsing and took his name for the band.
They say Tucker was someone very special to their hearts and even though he was blind from birth, he could play the heck out of the piano.
The real Marshall Tucker was 99.
