Would just like to add only saw ABB once live in July of 1974 at Mile Hight Stadium in Denver. Was a great afternoon concert. I'm 61 and grew on on the music of the sixties and seventies and it seems that so many of my heroes are passing away. It was a magic time seems all we have left is the vinyl.
........42 years of my life I have listened to him and the Allman Brothers. Countless shows and actually got to met him to sign a concert promotion poster. There will never be another. I had bought tickets and airfare and hotel nights to see him on 06/14 and 06/15 in Savanah, Georgia this year and I live in New York and after those were cancelled I feared the worse would happen, and it has. He was one of the few that actually could sing Sam Cooke's ; '' Change Is Gonne Come '' with true musical conviction.' That '' generation '' and style of music has really come to a close. This is a huge loss.
+1 on the Muscle Shoals documentary--world class.
Absolutely a great loss! "Time goes by like pouring rain"
RIP Greg. Thank you for making the sound track of this lifetime that much better. The Allman’s were just GREAT!
To all, can you imagine if you could bring someone back from 100, 200, 300, 1,000-years ago to listen to the music that we’ve all had the insane fortune to experience over the last 50+-years. Astonishing!
If all of you people who like Gregg Allman, would venture to Facebook's "Bufffalo Springfield and Beyond", and "Neil Young's Heart of Gold Spreading on Facebook" [go to Facebook.com, and in the entry bar, type "Buffalo Sprin...", and "Neil Young's.." to find these] could view my many postings of Gregg: live concerts, many songs by the Allman Brothers, and his funeral... Southern Man and Gregg at the Movies and much more.. And read the many comments by his fans.. Gregg was a real show stopper with his brothers.. And many of fans loved Gregg, and remembered him as he passed.. His wife Cher, and President Carter attended his funeral.. Bless Gregg.. a very sad day.. may Gregg Rest In Peace..
