Doug's 22 year old nephew Clay Cook replaces David Muse on sax, flute and keyboards. Clay Cook joined the Marshall Tucker Band in January of 2000 and was met with resounding acclaim from audiences across the country. He's worked cohesively with his band mates to continue the spirit upon which MTB has thrived for over 30 years. Lending youthful ingenuity, charisma and vocals that rival some of the best in Rock today, Clay has proven himself a legend in the making. After two years of studying Music Theory at Boston's Berklee College of Music, Clay returned to his hometown, Atlanta, GA with friend John Mayer. The two created a striking songwriting pair, co-writing such hits as "No Such Thing" now featured on Mayer's release "Room For Squares" (Columbia). They received local notoriety, playing venues throughout Georgia before going separate ways. In the summer of 1999 Clay moved to Huntington Beach, California on a musical sabbatical before joining MTB. With twenty years of music studies and experience under his belt, beginning with piano at age four, Clay continues to expand and perfect his mastery of instruments such as sax, flute, keyboards, guitar, slide guitar and drums.
