The Derek Trucks Band is a six-piece group with a sixteen-year legacy of relentless
touring; always believing in building the machine the old fashioned way: one fan at
a time. Their concerts have evolved into consistent, rafter-raising events, filled
with soulful jams and gospel-revival intensity, highlighted by Trucks's
dazzling, daring guitar solos.
The group's new double-live album Roadsongs
captures the DTB in their full, cathartic glory and promises to expand their
audience and draw greater attention to the group -- and Trucks himself.
"I remember that second night in Chicago," recalls Trucks. "It was kind of a rare thing.
We all came off the stage and, independently of one another, said
'That was great! If we ever do a live album, that was it right there.' " From the Label
