Both my brothers are huge Allman Brother's fans, my one brother saw them more times than I could even attempt to count. Ever March right around our birthdays he would scoop up tickets with his friends. They would go to multiple concertss at the Beacon Theate\r. One year, I don't know how, he invited our other brother and myself along with some friends to the Beacon for the anual concert. Of course he just seen them a few days before. What made it special was we were together, enjoying music, laughing and creating meories I will cherish forever. We knew each time we saw the Allman Brothers could be the last and every time the curtain came down it might never come up again. I was disappointed the first few times they didn't play Jessica but that changed the last time we saw them at the Beaco. I turned to them with the biggest grin on my face, they know how I felt whenever I listen to that song.
Then came last Christmas rolled around and my brothers again surprised by tickets to see Gregg Allmann solo at the Sands in Bethlehem,PA. I jumped at the chance but during the concert I noticed time was catching up to Gregg Allman. It was just the three of us hanging out and having a good time just like so many times before
When I heard of Gregg's passing my first thought was he's finally reunited with his older brother and other bandmates he lost over the years. Their deaths certainly were a heavy tool on his own life. The only good things from Gregg's death is the fact he's finally reunited with people he loves and no longer has those demons haunting him.They are up there jamming away! !
T hanks Gregg for all the memories you gave me with my brothers! May you finally have the peace that you have been seeking for a very long time
