Status Deceased (2000)

Truck Sugar is the victim in "The Red and the Blue". He, his brother Ty Sugar, and their friend Dusty Ray were a country music band known as the Sugar Boys, in which Truck was a singer, song-writer and guitarist. They came to Philly from Tennessee to perform at the Blue Star Lounge.

Truck met singer Edie Lowe and the attraction was instant, despite him being married to his high school sweetheart, Lucille "Honey" Sugar. Eventually, Truck and Honey mutually agreed to break up when they realized they wanted different things, as she was not prepared to come with him on the road for his singing career.

The Sugar Boys (minus Ty) were all about to be signed to a major record label but they had to change their sound to pop. Truck was not okay with this and decided to go home. When he refused to change his mind, Dusty shot him and he was abandoned by Edie to die in the street.

After the case was solved, Truck's spirit is seen performing by Lilly Rush at a bar in his native Tennessee.
