I'm truly saddened by the passing of Gregg Allman. I had the opportunity to see the Allman Brothers Band 15 times, in six different states. In NYC, Atlanta and at the Bonnaroo, Wanee and Peach Music Festivals. There was an amazing show at the Fox Theater in Atlanta two days after my birthday in 2014 called "Gregg Allman and Friends Concert". A number of musicians sat in to perform some of Gregg's songs, and the ABB performed a couple tunes, as well.....and I was front row. Left to right: Gregg, Taj Mahal, Sam Moore, Susan Tedeschi, Warren Haynes, Pat Monahan, Devon Allman, Eric Church, Zac Brown and Robert Randolph for the encore of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".
From the same show, Gregg and Jackson Browne playing "Melissa" on the acoustic guitars.
Warren Haynes spent 25 years playing in the Allman Brothers Band, recruited in 1989 along with Allen Woody. Here's what Warren had to say about Gregg's passing:
