  • Greg Allman Dead at 69

    Such great music, another Rock Icon leaves us for greener pastures.

    March 13, 1970 and myself and friends went to The Warehouse in New Orleans to see Albert King, opening was a no name band that we didn't know or care about. I went to the snack bar to get a hot dog and a cold drink and started talking to two guys in front of me. When i got my dogs they were at a stand up table and waved me over. I had a pint of Wild Turkey 101 in my coat and we all stood around drinking and hiding it from the security. We had a grand time and ended up just about finishing the bottle. They said they had to get moving and I rejoined my friends waiting for this unknown opening band to take the stage. Well to my surprise the two guys I was hanging out with were Greg and Duane Allman.

    Here is a link to actual audio of the concert as I heard it in 1970, you will hear whay they became a favorite band in New Orleans.

    Awww geez, make it stop! One of my favorite all time groups. Only saw them once in concert-in 1973 at Watkins Glen-but the Allman Brothers music has been a fixture on my turntable for almost 50 years.

            It just seems like we are losing too many great artists that we grew up with lately.

                Very bummed about this. I'm glad I was able to see Gregg play live when he was healthy - I really dig the Allmans. Played my tape of Idlewild South today in tribute. RIP, Gregg.
