In addition to being a member of The Allman Brothers Band, slide guitarist Derek Trucks has been touring with his own band for a number of years. Last year he teamed up with his wife, singer Susan Tedeschi, and recorded a new album that will see its release in the next few months. Derek and Susan, along with an 11-piece band will be performing in Auckland on April 27th at The Powerstation. The 13th Floor spoke to Derek just as he was about to hit the road with The Allman Brothers. He talked about the Allman’s legacy, his own new music and jamming with Dylan at age 11.
