Is that Southern Rock? Then turn it up! One of the pioneers of that genre has passed away. Evidently he was in poor health.

We saw him not too long ago at the Ryman. Our back-row seats were right under some fellows above who had spilled beer which poured on our heads. Mortified the head manager ushered us to seats on the third row literally in front of Allman. It was great and it was like he was singing to us. Glad for the beer from above; would never trade that for anything. He was magnificent and we will all miss him.

I first saw Greg and crew at the Atlanta Pop Festival, July 4 weekend 1970. They played on the main stage twice. They also played the in the camping grounds the 1st night (I think) of the festival. I remember listing to them there. They were pretty close to us and of course they were great. We asked those around us who was playing and eventually someone said the Allman Brothers. we hadn't heard of them but by the end of the festival everybody had.

Loved the Allman Brothers back in the day. "Statesboro Blues" is one of my all time favourite tracks.
Clean forgot that Gregg was married to Cher for a while, time passes!
