Thanks for the pics. I didn't know that person was Kirk. I remember seeing him around the stage at the Greek shows last year.

All the beset to ya Kirk!

I do not pretend to be a close personal friend of Kirk. I have met him on several occasions and he has always been polite and friendly. Without knowing or caring to know the salacious details of his severence, I bid him a fond farewell. It was always fun to bump into him at the shows. I wish him success in whatever comes next.

Well said . Others on both sides of the issue should take your approach . It's a bit on the weird/creepy side that some folk take this stuff so personally .

Right on. Kirk has performed a valuable service to the fans of the ABB, and the band itself, and has always been friendly to me when I've been around him. I hope things work out well for him. The circumstances surrounding him leaving the band are none of my business.

great pictures....thank you for sharing them....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------
I put over there in the other thread, so I'll put it over here too
======================================================
"he has probably done more good for the band than any other individual outside the musicians"
=========================================================
word X 1000...
=========================================================
no slight to any other of the wonderful people working for or connected the the ABB, but as far as I'm concerned, Kirk (along with Lana) has been the kindest, most consistently accessible, most fan friendly and best face of the Allman Brothers Band for a very long time...... I am certain all of us would have a lot less info & ABB Archive music without Kirk.
Obviously, there would no Big House Museum, probably no Big House either (if someone else had purchased it) He is the ultimate Allman Brothers Fan, trying hard as hell to share what we care about most THE MUSIC....and that is not easliy done....
Whatever is up, I, as well as my entire family, have been very fortunate and blessed to make his acquaintance, and are nothing but extremely grateful for every moment he spent with Marley,Tyler or myself....

Hats of to Mr.Kirk West....

well before there was a museum, this man and his wife opened thier home to countless thousands of people to see his collections, and mainly, just to stand in those rooms...to drink in what only the true fans could possibly understand...

opened thier home...where they lived...

knock on the door..sure, c'mon in...

think about it..

I will always remember the smile on his face as Bill Ector and I walked around my first time there...I was in ABB/Duane,Berry, Dickey, Jaimoe, Butch, Gregg effin LIVED here heaven, and he knew what it meant to me..and so many others...

I don't know what went down..all i DO know is that if there is a bigger ambassador to the fans than Kirk West, I have yet to meet him/her

you can't take that away...

I've said before that for the past twenty or so years kw has been part of the ABB 'story' and he has a wealth of information he's shared with fans and others. There is no denying he helped save the big house and there would, in all liklihood, not be a museum there without his involvement, nor, probably would there be a Hittin the Note magazine. He deserves all the credit he gets for his part in that ABB history. My issue has always been with the way he went about doing it and how he wrote himself into the story of the early years when he wasn't even around to the detriment of the people who were. I never understood that. I've also had a problem with some of the methods by which he 'obtained' a lot of the memorabilia that ended up in his personal private collection.

Whether the truth of the matter comes out or not, the band seens to have very legitimate and damning reasons why he was fired. As for the fans, the museum is still open and, to the best of my knowledge, the magazine is still being published and that's all most people will ever know.

i sure do love that guy, Kirk West. his kindnesses to me, my family, and my friends have gone miles beyond anything i could ever have hoped. whatever is going on, i'd never abandon a true friend, and that's what he's been to me - albeit, a faraway friend - for many years.

the seond time we threw a preshow, nearly 13 years ago, well, 4 people came to the first one. 35 people came to the second - including Kirk and Kirsten. it was no big soiree - we just all sat around in the yard under the big trees, listened to music, and everyone had a free place to hang and get to know one another. we've never stopped hosting them. we give Kirk and Kirsten a ton of credit for gracing us with their presence, and hundreds and hundreds of folks who've enjoyed our hospitality since owe them too.

i don't have time to recount the dozens of times i've known him to intervene to make the fans' experience a better one. putting security in their place, taking care of the tapers, keeping a watchful eye on things - all while able to intelligently discuss what was played during the show with the detail and enthusiasm of a true fan - that's the guy i adore.

here's to you, KW!

I met Kirk & his wife in 2004.We called and they invited us over to the Big House. They were most gracious.The visit there was a highlight of our pilgrimmage to Macon to take in all things Allman. I have a picture of Kirk & his wife interacting with our dogs.He is a great representative for the Brothers.Thanks Kirk for all you do and being open and accessible to the fans !!

and what's with the get-up in the first pic?


If you don't mind my asking, why are you always so negative?

It must take a lot of work to go through life that way.

I don't know Kirk, although I've seen him at shows.

I passed by him backstage at a sparsely attended Mule show once, that's about it other than seeing him in the background.

Respectfully, let's keep all of the negativity in the other thread here:

http://www.allmanbrothers.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&fi le=viewthread&tid=104082

I know you didn't start it annarose3, but let's keep this dialog respectful of the great things Kirk has done to our benefit. There are those that would rather pass over all of this greatness in favor of slander & speculation, and I'm sure those few select people would be happy to explain their position there (after all, they can't shut up about it if you haven't noticed).

Kirk's contributions, the Big House, they will all be there tomorrow and the next day no matter what reasons may or may not be behind his termination. For that, we should be eternally grateful because at the end of the day, when the music finally stops, the legacy of the Allman Brothers band lives on forever thru the museum that Kirk and his lovely wife were integral in making a reality.

Kirk visits here frequently, he needs to know that his efforts did not go unnoticed, and will not be forgotten!

What exactly are Kirk's contributions?

I've seen him, I know the name, but not much more than that I'm afraid.

Kirk was involved in the "Dreams" box set as associate producer, which led to the resurrection of the band at their 20th anniversary, and that goes back to 1989. I think he goes back further as band photographer.

A lot of your pictures at The Georgia Music Hall of Fame-a couple years back -- proved a formidable collection. By around 1970 you probably started catching up with The Allman Brothers Band.

Well, I saw them before I heard about them. They were playing this joint in the entertainment neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. The hippie section was along Well Street all through the later Sixties. It started to get fairly dangerous — there was a lot of turmoil going on in Chicago, a lot of **** kicking off. Three or four blues clubs around Rush street, but mostly they were these 1970’s equivalent to singles bars. Pick up joints. They’d have a lot of music, but they weren’t serious listening rooms. At this time we were 19 and there’s this one place — none of us were old enough to drink yet, so we all had fake IDs and were floating in and out of the joints and I came to a place called “Beavers” that’s where I first saw The Allman Brothers. They were loud. They looked like us — we were hippies with tie dies and mutton chops and **** like that, but they were really **** ing loud and they were okay — they were good, but we weren’t there to watch music, we were there to get close to chicks. We hung around about an hour and it wasn’t the kind of sound you you could talk over, so we split. A short time later I was at a friend's house and I saw that first album and I recognized the guys as the guys we saw that night, and so I put it on and listened to it at a moderate volume and **** ing fell in love with it. I went out the next morning and bought two copies of it. I left one at home and took the other one wherever I went. I saw them again down here in Atlanta — '69 and '70 were a couple of good years for hitting rock festivals.


Perfect example of re-writing history that I mentioned. I know for a fact he never saw Duane or Berry play when they were alive. I just never understood why he had to invent a life he never lived when the one he was living had merit on its own.

Who the heck are you "JerrySpringerClassic"? You just showed up here March 6th.
Why can't you post with your regular ID? Sorry, but I can't take you seriously.
I met Kirk once and he was friendly. That's all I know personally about him.

I wanted to have Kirk on my show with Dickey. Can you think of a better Springer show than that? Possibly have that springerclassic guy on as well. He sounds like he would fight with a tree stump.


Like I said, I can't take you seriously regardless of how many names you post.
I probably would not take you seriously if you used your regular ID either.
