Gregg Allman passed peacefully at home yesterday. He was very much a part of my life as all my friends in high school were in a jam band that played mostly Allman Bros. music along with Clapton, Steve Miller, etc.

My drummer buddy was in an Allman Bros. tribute band just a couple of years ago called "The Brothers" that consisted of several members of the old "Pavlov's Dog" band (I think) that used to be the opening act for Gregg for a while.

I remember being pissed at Gregg one night when I traveled an hour and a half away to see him play and he showed up two hours late. The guy had some personal issues, but damn, did he play some great music.

There ain't but "One Way Out" for us all.

I actually had a conversation with him for like 20 mins a few years back. He was hanging out at Hard Rock in Orlando. I had no idea who he was at the time. Super nice guy. RIP to him.

I saw this on the news yesterday. I'm glad I caught his act last summer in Memphis. He put on a great show.

RIP Gregg

Midnight Rider
Gregg Allman, The Allman Brothers Band

https://youtu.be/rnKFtJB0ALc


Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
And I'm bound to keep on riding
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I've gone by the point of caring
Some old bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've got one more silver dollar

But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
No I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
No, I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
I'm not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider







he finally got caught

No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the street
I've got my label, So I won't crumble at your feet
And I know baby, So I've got scars upon my cheek
And I'm half crazy, Come on and love me baby

So you find me hard to handle, well I'm easier to hold
So you like my spurs that jingle and I never leave you cold
So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel

No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark
Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark
Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo
Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby

So you don't give a darn about me, I never treat you bad
I won't ever lift a hand to hurt you & I'll always leave you glad
So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel

LEAD

No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark
Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark
Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo
Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby

Allman to be buried in Macon

The Allman Brothers Band Museum in Macon became a mecca Sunday for fans mourning the death of co-founder Gregg Allman.

People were lined up to enter by the time the doors opened, said Greg Potter, museum trustee. Fans were leaving flowers and other tributes on the steps of what is commonly referred to as The Big House. The house was the band’s home in the early 1970s as they formed a distinctive Southern rock sound and rose to fame.

Allman, 69, died Saturday of liver cancer at his home in Savannah, his manager Michael Lehman told the Associated Press. Lehman also said Allman will be buried at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, where his brother Duane is also buried.

“That’s in his wishes,” Lehman said.

Duane Allman, guitarist in the band, died in a motorcycle crash in Macon in 1971. He is buried in a fenced lot with Berry Oakley, bass player for the Allman Brothers who was also killed in a motorcycle accident in Macon the year after Allman.

Lehman told the Associated Press that Gregg Allman would be buried alongside his brother. However, Dave Caplice, who maintains the lot on behalf of Oakley’s sister, said Gregg Allman will not be buried on that lot. He said Allman said in an interview last year that he had bought 10 lots at Rose Hill and those may be adjacent to the lot where Duane Allman and Oakley are buried, but he will not be buried in the same lot.

Maggie Johnson, the museum’s marketing director, was happy to hear the news that Gregg Allman would be buried in Macon.

“I think that’s great,” she said. “It’s going to be really nice to have him there with his brother.”

There were no further details on funeral arrangements or whether the burial would be public.

Potter said ordinarily about 50 people would come to the museum on a Sunday, but that number was surpassed shortly after the doors opened.

“It’s just shaken so many people,” he said. “Most people didn’t know he was as sick as he was. It has just been a real shock.”

Among those paying respects were Barry Joiner of Swainsboro and his 17-year-old daughter, Regan, who is also a fan of the band. They decided to make the pilgrimage after hearing of Allman’s death Saturday.

“I was deeply saddened,” Joiner said. “I grew up listening to the Allman Brothers. I’ve listened to them all my life. The band itself was different than anything around and still is.”

Tom and Penny Dolan of Tallahassee, Florida, already were driving to Macon for their first visit to The Big House when they heard the news Saturday. Tom left flowers on the steps Sunday before they entered the house.

“It just seems like we are losing more and more of the great artists I grew up with,” he said.

Phillip Walters of Macon was there wearing a “Gregg Allman Band” T-shirt. He said the first album he ever bought was by the Allman Brothers.

“He was a legend,” Walters said. “He put Macon on the map with Southern rock and roll.”

Some had close view of Allman’s success
Many Middle Georgia residents have memories of meeting Gregg Allman personally during the band’s Macon years. But some had a close up view of the group’s success.

Sebie Lacey and Mike Causey were members of the Warner Robins group Stillwater and toured with the Allman Brothers Band in 1976-77. They were the opening act, performing in front of thousands.

“It was great,” said Lacey, a businessman today. “Who wouldn’t want to open for the Allman Brothers? It was an awesome thing and the music was so good.”

Although he had not kept in touch with Allman, Lacey said he was deeply saddened by the news of Allman’s death.

“He was a great vocalist and a great musician,” Lacey said. “When he sang a song he sang it will feeling and passion. You knew it was Gregg singing.”

Causey saw the Allman Brothers Band perform at a famous music festival in Byron in 1970 that drew a crowd estimated at more than 200,000.

“They were incredible,” Causey said. “They came out and stole the show. I won’t ever forget it.”

He said Stillwater would likely not have had the success that it did without Allman’s influence, and he has fond memories of opening for the band.

“It was just an incredible experience,” he said. “I was just excited to have the opportunity to play with them and be around them.”

Paul Hornsby of Macon was a producer and keyboardist for The Marshall Tucker Band, which also played the Southern rock sound that Allman pioneered. Hornsby played with Gregg and Duane in a band called The Hour Glass before they formed the separate bands that would vault them to success.

“The first time I met Duane and Gregg, I knew they were stars waiting to happen,” he said.
