Man, you can almost smell the weed burning there, can’t you?

  8. Only saw these guys once ,when they were all alive, in Athens as a High school student allegedly checking out the university. Remember very little of the concert (yes, I was as thick as a brick at the time) but can still feel the vibe. It is possible that their deaths(Duane and Butch’s) saved me from becoming the Allman Brothers version of a deadhead. This,”Whipping post “and “Blue Sky: are the songs I NEVER tire of. Txs Bluto

    When the original six hit the note, as they called it, they opened up a portal to another world. No other band could howl quite like that. Glad to see Berry O getting some much-deserved love here, too.

    Duane, Butch, Greg, Jaimoe, Barry were elite of the elite. Butch leaving perhaps saved his life. Death in destiny follows great ones all to soon. Their trials and tribulations were as as constant as the thunder and lighting they played.
    Today their children keep up “a family tradition” but no one will ever be the ABB.

    Senator, yesterday I was wasting sometime on Spotify and regarding your last palate cleanser from “Black and Blue” and the Stones. I came across a old version of Mercy, Mercy by Don Convay sounds to me if you can pick up how Mick learned his vocals from a black man in 1965.
    As a kid of the 60’s one of the few radio stations I could pickup was WLAC out of Nashville,Tn. It was a true rhythm and blues station and the main disc jockey was John R ( John Richbourg, Manning, SC, record producer and manager )who happed to be white playing the brothers music. They still have a website but sadly the hip hop of the day has cut the Heart out of the the blues. Check out Don !
