Ironically, I attended a southern rock double bill of Charlie Daniels and Lynyrd Skynyrd the night of Toy's death at Radio City Music Hall. They had a big candle lit on stage and both bands mentioned Toy during their sets.

Tommy. Toy. George. Wow. I was lucky enough to see many great live shows with the original Marshall Tucker Band. They really had their own sound. I often wonder how great it would have been had Tommy not passed away. Toy loved his family, his country, and his music. God blessed me for allowing me to sit in on some truly great nights.

I saw half a dozen shows from that lineup.

I also feel very lucky.

I remember that day and hearing it on the radio,I played Ab'es song like 10 times in a row. I got to see origanal lineup once and saw Toy C band in a bar shortly before he died.That whole Caldwell brothers thing is very tragic,I think Toy died of a broken heart.

Toy had a great way of writing life's experiences in to notes and music. Many of us probably felt he wrote a lot of his songs from our experiences in life. He was the best at writing True love stories, broken hearts and cowboy songs. He truly was in a class all to his self.

it's such a shame & a truly tragic loss when someone with such talent dies so young when they have so much to express & offer happens way too often

Rest in peace Toy. Your music will live forever.

Saw MTB once back in 74-75 time frame. Wish it was recorded. Probably my favorite live concert I ever saw. The band would come to a grinding stop and Toy would launch in a solo...ala LAFE style. They did this many times during the show. His brother Tommy's bass playing reminded me of Berry. Building up to a crescendo, etc... Toy's tone was incredible. Band was tight, yet loose for improvisation. And the "thumb", I had no idea until I saw him.

How about the live side of Where We All Belong? That is some of the best playing ever. Wow, what a band they were.

Nassua Coliseum over 30 years ago and I remember it like yesterday.

He was "The last of the singing cowboys"

They have released a lot of live stuff from the 70's in the last few years

RIP Toy -- he had the gift & shared it -- there's no more complimentary thing can be said about someone -- what a player & songwriter

WORD! Ramblin' On My Mind is intense! HIGH energy. 24 Hours At A Time is killer on that, too. Love Tommy's bass solo, too.

There weren't to many bands out there that could touch them during that time frame. I saw the original lineup many times and I am so glad I did. I was even fortunate enough to meet Toy a few times and Tommy once. Those guys always gave you your moneys worth and more.

Here is a Toy Caldwell Appreciation page on Facebook if interested.
