Who Was The Real Marshall Tucker?

The official MARSHALL TUCKER BAND website says the real namesake of the band was no western hero.  Just a name on the key chain of the warehouse studio they were using to rehearse in their early days.   The band liked the sound of the name so they went with it not knowing it belonged to a real person. The real Marshall Tucker? Turns out he was the guy who rented the studio prior to them.   A blind piano tuner who probably never knew how famous he was…
