While I hate the fact that some have been offended, the truth of the matter is that I don't post anything that I'm not personally a big fan of. I was asked if I was mad at Gregg. The answer is no, not at all. I guess some might think these video's put Gregg in a negative light. I don't. To me it's history. The good, the bad and the ugly.

Before the opinion police show up, LOL!, I'm not offended, Clay. As a matter of fact, I have that 1977 show on dvd. I've referred to it many times. Just not something that I, personally, would share. Not because I want to pretend it didn't happen, but out of respect to him. Just my opinion here. Clay, you have the goods my Brother!!

I'm not offended Clay. Those videos are from a sad period in Gregg's life.
I really don't like the videos. But I still like you.

I needed to post here. Although some do not care for that time period in Gregg's life, I know Gregg didn't want to be there either. It did suck, in some ways still sucks, and is in fact a reality. Have you noticed in his bio he makes mention to the fact that he will be leaving out the drugs and alcohol. He doesn't remember those days. We all do, those who we're around him. I am honestly grateful he made it this far and has those years of sobriety under his belt. There was many a time I felt like I was waiting on the call........
Please do not misconstrue what I have said, or take it out of context, just leave it alone, it is just a statement. I have noticed sometimes people get nasty around here, so I feel like defending myself ahead of time. Maybe it will keep the wolves away.

Hey, just like you said. Gregg doesn't want to focus on it, but I am sure he also doesn't try to act like it never happened. We wouldn't have the history of this band's work without it's entirety. Drugs and all!

Thanks Clay!

My above post coming from someone who has experienced being on stage, and being to messed up to play. Not something that I want to remember either. Hell, I still cringe when I see folks that were there that night. However, I am sure that Gregg has learned a lot from those times!

I am not suggesting it didn't happen. Of course it happened, sad as it was.
Everybody has their opinion. I don't like bringing up or focusing on those times.
It has been pretty well documented, so it can't be deleted from history. Clay
posts a lot of very nice photos and videos. I appreciate that very much. But
I didn't care for these. That's just how I see it.

The overall power of the music is much greater than a single entity within. And it deserves to be seen and heard. Like it or not.

The overall power of love...for Gregg!
I will love that man no matter what videos
are shown or what anybody has to say
about him, past or present. I'm not denying
his past, but I guess I have heard as much
negative as I can. Gregg is sober, clean and
leading a responsible life now. I admire him
for that. So carry on.

Summed up perfectly. How many times have we gone to work and felt like sh*t. Nobody is 100% all the time. That's what makes us human.

Gregg: "The kind of music I play is honest rock, blues, jazz fusion."

I had no problem with any of those videos.

Ruthie, I don't think anyone is attacking you here! I just agree with Clay in saying that any Gregg is good to see. Even his rougher days are still cool to see. I didn't get to see the man in his younger years, and I would like to soak up as much as I can. That is all! Hope you can understand our intentions!

Who else are you speaking for Drew? Some of the folks here, including myself,
have loved Gregg since before you were born. I didn't say anyone on this thread
was attacking me. I said I didn't like the videos. I personally don't think dredging
up the past is history. The history is well documented. If you enjoy seeing a performer
at the worst part of their lives, then go ahead. I hope you enjoy it.

The videos that show Gregg in Japan in 1977 were indeed a low point in his life. The nature of Gregg's demons are not that different from many of our own. I'm sure he wasn't that loaded everyday in 1977 or any other time. He most likely suffered relapses mixed in with periods of clarity. But I dont think he's ever had the stretch of success that he's had the past 12 years and i commend him for it. To quote the late great Lowell George, "Its so easy to slip, its so easy to fall."
