George McCorkle Fighting Cancer

Posted: Jun 22, 2007

We have received some very sad news here at GRITZ. Our long time friend George McCorkle, a founding member of The Marshall Tucker Band, is in the hospital fighting cancer. We at  GRITZ and SWAMPLAND are keeping George and his family in our thoughts and prayers. Below is a statement from georgemccorkle.com.

"This is the hardest announcement I have ever had to make.  However, the family has asked me to make it.  George McCorkle, founding member of the Marshall Tucker Band is currently in the hospital fighting Cancer.  Unfortunately, the very devastating disease has spread thru his body and the Doctors do not feel he has much longer to suffer.  His family ask that you respect his privacy.  However, well wishes, prayers, and notes can be emailed to me thru Bruce@GeorgeMcCorkle.com and Vivianne and I will read them to him.

Vivianne, George, Justin, and the McCorkle family ask that you send up prayers for George."

Thank you for your comments. I myself have know George since the mid-seventies, and we have become good friends over the past eight years of GRITZ. What a good man. Always the first to offer to play a benefit. Always ready to play on my albums. And always such a POSITIVE attitude. I also find this very hard to believe. He was just in the studio with me a few short months ago, laughing and having fun. God bless you George, Viv, Justin and the whole family. Buff

I am choked up by this news. The Spartanburg Herald-Journal just posted a news story as well. It makes my heart hurt, after all the good music that he has provided for my heart, I wish the best for him and his loved ones. Thank you George.

This is very sad news. I have been a fan of Marshall Tucker since 1975. I have often wondered what happened to George after the original band breakup. He is by far the best rhythm guitarist in southern rock.God bless you George.
