Musician. A founding member of the southern rock group, the Marshall Tucker Band. He was raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and at 18 was drafted into the United States Navy, serving on the USS Little Rock while it was stationed in Italy (1966 to 1967). After his discharge from the service, he decided to turn his attention to music. He played guitar with The Toy Factory and Pax Parachute, and in 1972, co-formed the Marshall Tucker Band. In 1973 the band released the album the "Marshall Tucker Band" which included "Take The Highway" and "Can't You See", which are still played on the radio today. McCorkle left the group in 1984 to become a full-time songwriter in Nashville. He made his last guest appearance with the Marshall Tucker Band in August 2006 and also played on the 2005 "Carolina Christmas" CD. He died of cancer at the University Medical Center in Lebanon, Tennessee. (bio by: Carole McCaig)
