Gregg Allman has passed away and joined his brother Duane at the big old juke joint in the sky.
They’re probably up there shaking the gates, having a smoke, sharing a jug of Cuervo Gold, and playing some righteous music the likes of which shall never be heardÂ the same way twice on Earth again.
The Allman Brothers’ musical steel, rhythmic dexterity, and genius for looking cool have kept their art alive. The Allman Bros live forever.
Although the Allman Brothers Band is mostly associated with Georgia (Eat A Peach), they’re originally from Jacksonville, Florida and they first recorded at Henry Stone’s warehouse studio above his Tone Distributors office in Hialeah, FL.
Henry Stone remembered it like this, “They knew that if they wanted to record and get anywhere in Florida, they had to come see Henry Stone. They came to me, we cut them. We recorded that one terrific album with them that had the song “Melissa” on it. My TK Vice President Steve Alaimo’s a writer on that. That was recorded upstairs in my funky little studio. I put it out on my Bold label and we did very well. They still weren’t big yet but we sold quite a few copies.”
So in tribute to the great Greggory L. Allman, we here at HenryStoneMusic salute your soul and its impact, poetry, beats, and melodies.
