I woke up at 3:30 this morning wanting to listen to the Allman Brothers.  Little did I know what was about to happen.

I can't even say for sure how many times I've seen him. Maybe twenty, maybe more? Very sad, I'm running out of heroes and I'm running out of friends :sad:.
RIP

Thanks  for that ;), but damn it I am feeling alone. The last couple years all my heroes in music have bought it, my friends have been dropping one after another. A year and a half ago my long time friend and lead guitarist died, a month ago my harp player died, a couple of guys I used to jam with are gone and a couple more aren't likely to be here much longer. Went through a triple bypass myself a couple of months ago.
This gettin' old shit ain't for sissies, and if I ever get my hands on that SOB who coined the term "golden years" he's likely to get my last and greatest ass kickin'  in my long history. Well , I got that out of my system ;D.
Back to business , once again RIP to a great hero and inspiration of mine.
Rick

For all his failures and personal battles, a deeply likable man and an iconic figure of US rock.

Let's get some electric romance in here! (Yup, I own up to owning the album!)



And what it spawned ...



As some of her hair styles and sartorial Blitzkrieg attacks go  :mrgreen: , Cher has always deserved a Medal of Honour, here before they went "official":

I really liked Greg Allman's voice and writing more than the other white Southern R&B/Soul guys like Leon Russell and Dr John, etc.

I never really "got" the  her thing. Must've been drugs or he totally lost his way after Greg and Berry died and then the ABB broke up. Just a weird period.

A friend of mine from decades ago ended up managing the ABB from the 80s until the end. I'm sure it was no small chore.

I accidentally woke Greg up once. I had to do something with Allen Woody and called before noon where the band was....got Greg by accident. You would never think that morning voice could ever sing a note.

RIP, man.
