The Marshall Tucker Band was a country-rock group formed '71 in South Carolina around brothers Tommy and Toy Caldwell's bass and lead guitars. From 1973 to '79, the Marshall Tucker Band released a string of albums that included hits "Can't You See," "Heard It In a Love Song" and "Fire on the Mountain." Tragedy struck the Southern rockers when bassist Tommy died in '80, and the kinship began to dissolve although the group reconstructed in the mid-'80s with the revival of the Southern comfort style. Unfortunately, lightning struck this band twice when Toy Caldwell, who released his first solo album in '92 and was commencing a promo tour, died in his sleep February 25, 1993.
