The man who inspired the Marshall Tucker Band's moniker died on 20 January 2023 at age 99. The Southern rock group was rehearsing in its early days and found a keychain with Tucker's name on it in an old warehouse in Spartanburg, S.C. In an interesting twist, Tucker was also a musician. "Marshall was blind since birth but amazingly could play the heck out of the piano," the band noted on social media. "He always said his talent was simply God-given. He tuned pianos in South Carolina for decades. We are thankful for Mr. Marshall Tucker and the life he lived." , Facebook , Instagram , X , Wikipedia
