|Taz DiGregorio: We are saddened over the death of our friend Taz DiGregorio, long time keyboardist for the Charlie Daniels
Band. Taz was was recently killed in an auto accident just out side of Nashville. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Taz
several times and he was a very funny guy. I loved to hear him tell road stories of his adventures with the CDB. I regret that of
all the times I was around Taz, I never got a picture with him, or never got him to sign any of the CD's or posters that he gave
me. Taz asked me "Where in the world did you ever get that at????" after I posted a rare video from Volunteer V (1979)
of Taz singing The Breeze at the first reunion of Lynyrd Skynyrd (after the plane crash). I'm glad that I posted that video in
time for Taz to see it. Of all the many band members that have came & gone in the Charlie Daniels Band over the years,
Taz was there the whole time, since about 1970. He won a grammy as co-writer on the 1979 song Devil Went Down To
Georgia along with his band mates Charlie Daniels, Tommy Crain, Charlie Hayward, Freddy Edwards & James Marshall.
Taz and the band have had many hit singles & albums over the years, as well as playing concerts all over.
The memorial service was very moving. A celebration of life was held after the memorial with a musical tribute to Taz
including Souths Gonna Do It Again and other songs with Charlie Daniels, Travis Tritt, Joel DiGregorio (Taz's son),
Dennis & Donnie Winters (Winters Brothers Band) and others. Taz was well liked and will be missed by many people.
