Atlanta Musician Steven Marchi Missing for 15 Days!

Written by Duffie Dixon of 11 Alive Friends of a missing local musician are asking for the public’s help in locating him. 43-year-old Steven Marchi was last seen the night of August 12, 2011. His roomate Jeffrey Powell said Marchi left the apartment in in his green Dodge pickup that has a camper top and an Illinois license plate. Powell assumed he’d see Marchi in a few hours, but he and others have not seen or heard from Marchi since. “I didn’t think too much of it at first.

My cell phone started going off tonight with multiple calls from Macon, and as I stired from a nap, I turned on my computer to find an email from a friend telling me that Red Dog passed at home with family and loved ones around him in peace at 7 PM tonight. Joseph will be well missed by many, but he is no longer in pain suffering from cancer and is with Duane Allman again. Red Dog was a roadie for The Allman Brothers Band for over thirty years.
