R.I.P. Stuart Swanlund

Rolling Stone is reporting that Marshall Tucker Band guitarist Stuart Swanlund died last week at the age of 54 after battling health problems.

Swanlund first joined the Marshall Tucker Band in 1988 when bandleaders Doug Gray and Jerry Eubanks reformed the band after their split in 1983. Aside from Gray, Swanlund served the longest tenure in the Marshall Tucker Band, only leaving the band very recently to deal with his health troubles.

Memorial services for Swanlund will take place on August 11th in Boiling Springs, South Carolina.
