NEW YORK (AP) — A former bassist for the Allman Brothers Band was found dead in a New York City motel, police said.
A chambermaid found Douglas Allen Woody's body Saturday morning. There were no visible signs of trauma, and the cause of death is still unknown, police said.
Woody, 44, joined the Allmans as a bassist in 1989, in one of the '70s supergroup's later incarnations. He left with slide guitarist Warren Haynes in 1997, and the two formed a trio called Gov't Mule, with drummer Matt Abts. The band released several albums.
