GOAT, Southern Rock Artist; Gregg Allman, a show in Alameda…

Who am I to make a judgement like this, so make it IMHO. But before ABB, I don’t believe the musical category existed. I was fortunate to be able to make 2 recordings with Gregg Allman and the Alameda All Stars. On the road as Gregg Allman & Friends.

Due to this relationship with the Group, Gregg was a Guest at the smallest venue one would imagine. Rooster’s, now hosted one of the GOAT’s. Yes, while Rock Gods have played the Venue many times… This, was A “Musical GOAT”, in a Dive Bar…94501.

It is hard to imagine how the many people that occupied that very tiny corner of Alameda that Sunday Evening felt. When I think about that moment, the music… From the corner of Clement, & Grand Streets… This is my favorite┬ásong from the set…Melissa. While I am sorry the Audio was not better… The moment is more special as the Years progress…

With Gregg’s passing, Butch Trucks passing earlier this Year. I find the Symmetricity: Duane passes ’71, Gregg ’17. 7117, ABB, It’s fitting metaphor. They join Duane & Berry Oakley in The other side’s, now newly reformed Allman Brothers Band. The music now, as with all, …Timeless, Now belongs to the Ages…
