Gregg Allman Died May 27, 2017

According to Gregg Allman’s website… “Allman was born December 8th, 1947 in Nashville, TN, a little more than a year after his older brother Duane. Raised by single mom Geraldine, the family moved to Daytona Beach in 1959, though the brothers would spend considerable time back in Nashville.

Music City (Nashville) was an inspiration to Allman… He attended his first concert – starring Jackie Wilson, Otis Redding, B.B. King, and Patti LaBelle – and with the guidance of a neighbor named Jimmy Banes, fell in thrall to the power of a guitar. Nashville’s pull continued long after the family moved, with the brothers both hooked on local radio station WLAC’s legendary late night R&B broadcasts.”

Many of us have played numerous Allman Brother songs at band practice and on stage… Gregg’s talent with his vocals, the keys and guitar have provided tunes that have inspired many musicians and fans!… RIP Gregg!

Jam On!
-Ron

  • Recording Music In Your Living Room… June 12, 2018
    Having a studio in your own pad is great feeling. Being able to stroll over a couple of rooms and find yourself immersed in the comfortable surroundings of musical gear is a treat indeed. In an article from Billboard, Country singer, Tenille Townes, did a fair amount of her latest album using her living room […]
  • Gibson guitar company facing bankruptcy February 19, 2018
    If you’re like me you appreciate a good Gibson guitar. My favorite was a 1957 Les Paul Jr. single cut-away with a single P-90 pick up… it was a simple screamer! Now it appears that Gibson is in some sort of financial trouble and could be on the verge of bankruptcy after over 115 years […]
  • Paul McCartney Playing Live… December 26, 2017
    “Some of that natural reverb gets initiated by the stage sound itself, as things get pretty loud up there. Only Wickens wears in-ear monitors, as the rest of the band opts for Clair R4 sidefills and old-school Showco SRM wedges.” That’s a quote from the interesting article that talks about the equipment used on Paul […]

His departure from mainstream songs to introspective nuance has been instrumental (no pun intended) in providing for insightful creative considerations […]
