|Andy Aledort tribute to Gregg Allman July 7, 2017|
Andy was kind enough to share with me a recording of this truly spectacular tribute to Gregg Allman with a talented group of musicians.
If you don't know Andy (shame on you), he has a ton of lessons, instructional videos, magazine articles, etc on how to play guitar, especially featuring the licks & style of Duane & Dickey. He was most recently a guitarist in Dickey's band and in my opinion wrote the definitive technical Guitar World columns with Dickey on Dickey's nuances and licks.
I have the entire show on dropbox, so contact me (with your email) if you want to download the show, and I'll send you the link. If you are in the NYC area. you'll want to see his band!

|Getting into the car in a moment or two to head to Macon. Going to pay my lasting respects to Gregg and to celebrate his life and times. Peace to all.|
Music is love, and love is music, if you know what I mean.
People who believe in music are the happiest people I've ever seen.

|Saturday will be a very sad day as we say a final goodbye to the legend, Gregg Allman. His music will live on in all of us, as we listen and reminisce about the good 'ole days. May his wife and family find comfort in the great legacy this southern gentleman has left behind. He will be missed.|
|It's been a long time since I've been around here...I was very active with this page back when it all began. I used to post many stories...but then some people would bash me hard and I just stopped coming around and continued meeting up with peeps on the road.|
I thought I would stop in to see how things were going.
Here's my FB post on Gregg
Words can not begin to express the weight upon my heart over how I am deeply saddened over the death of Gregg Allman...
Since the first time I can remember hearing the Allman Brothers Band when I was nine years old, I was hooked...and since that day, the music of the Allman Brothers Band has played a significant role in my life each and every day.
I have been blessed with having many opportunities to be around the Allman Brothers Band and to be a part of the Allman Brothers Band extended family...so many shows, so many great times, and so many friends along the way. Truly, treasured in my heart, the most enjoyable times and experiences of my life.
I still remember, so very clearly, introducing my daughter Marisa, ten years old at the time, to Gregg Allman back stage at a show in Chicago. It was a great night... Marisa was so excited to go, and was equally as proud wearing a T-Shirt that read, "I'm With The Band" across the front of her shirt.
Marisa had the liner notes insert of the the CD "Hitting The Note" that she had all the band members sign. When she asked Gregg if he could knock her out an autograph, Gregg looked over to me, giggled in his gentle way, and began having a conversation with her...this was a bit of a rare autograph signing as Gregg usually prefers to sign album jackets only.
...as many of you know, I originally wanted to name my daughter Melissa from one of the greatest songs ever written by Gregory...Melissa.
I will forever be grateful to have been a part of the Allman Brothers Band world and for the rest of my days, the music of Gregg Allman and The Allman Brothers Band, and the many great experiences, will Soulshine in my heart forever.
...there is a long hard road that lies so far behind me...
The Road Goes On Forever...
Thank You Gregory Allman
May God hold you gently in His arms...May His love forever shine upon you...

|I first saw the Allman Brothers in 1971 there music hit me deep in my sole. I named 1 of my daughters Melissa after the song sweet Melissa. When I saw the report of Greg's passing I felt as if I had lost a good friend.I'm 71 and still play Wipping Post loud as I can. So rest in peace my good friend Greg I will miss you. |
