Musician. Bass guitarist who replaced Berry Oakley in the Allman Brothers Band in 1972 after his death. He played with the band until 1976, playing on three albums (2 studio, one live), one of which was the classic hit album, "Brothers And Sisters." After playing with the ABB, he went to play with Sea Level, playing on all their albums until they broke up in 1980. He soon got sick with Agent Orange-related cancer (since he was a Vietnam Vet in the Army), and he died from it in 1983.
