The Hammond Organ makes everything better.....It's like chocolate and bacon....it's perfect by itself and stand out when paired with other things....Music candy

I'll cover the "blue" spectrum.
The B3 is delicious when paired with other things. Here's a guy who's fiddled around with a Hammond once or twice.
Featuring a guitar player who could really add flavor to the gumbo.

This guy...

Mike Reilly: Blues & Rock Rider

B.B. King once said that playing the Blues was like having to be black twice. “Stevie Ray Vaughan missed on both counts, but I never noticed,” he concluded. The same can be said of Mike Reilly, who’s played with both B.B. King and Stevie Ray. Mike may not be black, but he knows the Blues, and he’s been playing them for a long time. Like Muddy Waters–another legend Mike’s shared the stage with–he’s still delivering ’cause he’s got a long memory.

Mike remembers growing up in Fullerton, California during the sixties and seventies. He remembers the night his father, Robert (guitarist who used to jam with Django Reinhardt), accidentally busting up his drum kit. To replace the drums, his dad bought his nine year-old son a trombone. Mike remembers his first Rock album–The Allman Brothers Band. And he remembers when, the following year, he bought an album that totally changed his life–Freddy King’s Getting Ready. Mike, now thirteen, was ready-ready to play the Blues. Sadly, Mike also remembers losing his big brother Bobby, a talented musician who died in 1980. Although there have been other musical influences in his life-from Duane Allman to Bill Champlin–none was more important than his brother Bobby. That same year, Mike got into the Sharpshooter Band (with Wayne Sharp, Jaimoe and Lamar Williams). That gig led to Elvin Bishop. And from Elvin came gigs with James Lee Hooker, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert Collins, Billy Gibbons and The Band.

Michael Joseph Reilly has had the rare opportunity of playing with most of the musicians who influenced him. Maybe this is why he sometimes refers to himself as the Forrest Gump of Rock. He’s released four albums as The Mike Reilly Band (various artists at various times included Dan Toler, Taj Mahal, Kid Ramos, Garth Hudson and Gregg Allman), and these days he continues to perform with an All-star lineup.

Love that instrument from the earlier Booker T. days and then Gregg.

I remember the first time I sat behind one & had a chance to play a bit. I felt like a kid in a candy store.

Check out Gregg's B-3 solo on Les Brers from the 5/1/73 archival release.In fact his playing on all of disc 2 is stellar.

Side note: In a post above Fanfrom-71 mentions Mr. Mike Reilly. I met Mike on a couple of occasions, once playing a little club here in Pacific Beach just a moments walk from the Crystal Pier back in 1988 or so. He was somewhat of a legend among we ABB fans because of his obvious love the brothers music. My girlfriend at the time and myself had found our way up to the front for his show and after his performance he wandered by our table and we engaged him in a brief conversation that centered around Gregg Allman having let me in the back door on the Belly-up back in '86. I told him how my Buddy Mikal Raile and I (pronounced Micheal Riley) had gone to said show w/o tickets and how we made our way to the back thinking Mike just might be with Gregg since during an earlier meeting at the "Old PB Cafe" Mike had spoken about knowing Gregg and we thought he might be able to get us into that sold out show. Alas, Mr. Reilly was not on the bus but did get called up on stage during Gregg's show. Anyway, while Laurie and I were talking to him (and he not knowing just how big an Allman fan I was) he looked us both right in the eye and said "I used to be in the Allman Brothers Band". I'll never forget looking at Laurie as if to say "Remember that"...we let him go on and on about his experiences with the band and his time spent in the GAB as well. Hahaha. Didn't say a word, didn't want to blow his cover, but I knew at that time he was name dropping, big time. Anyway again, pretty talented guy playing ABB covers in the local bar scene in San Diego back in the 80s.

Great thread Ron, thanks. Hard to get to all the youtubes but I'll open some of them.

I DID spend 12 minutes this morning on the above. Interesting to note how meticulous Hammond was in the manufacturing process. Which evokes a question. I'm about halfway through Al Paul's One Way Out and I read Galladrielle's Please Be With Me last year. I haven't read anything in those or anywhere else about Gregg's Hammond breaking down on the road. Someone must have some stories.

Think about it...........in the early days, a bunch of sleepless hippies were throwing that B-3 around between an Econoline van and a stage almost daily. ABB did 300 gigs in 1970 alone. I'd find it astonishing, and a tribute to Hammond's manufacturing process, if that organ never broke down.
Did they bring a backup organ? Did it ever require refurbishing in the middle of a tour?
