Aug. 28, 2000 | NEW YORK -- 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 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.

Woody, who was 44 and lived in Nashville, Tenn., is survived by his wife and their 3-year-old daughter.
