    I love the Allman Brothers Band. Greggs health has been on the decline as of late. He just put this book out a few weeks ago. Great read. Going to see the Brothers for 2 shows in August. Lately Ive been feeling that everytime I see them may be the last time. With warren haynes and derek trucks on guitar, it doesn't get any better.

    I have the signed book which I didn't read, and I have a digitally enhanced version for the kindle app on the Ipad. That has some video interviews with gregg which to me makes that woth the price also.

    Later in life, Allman, having finally ditched drugs, found spirituality in the Episcopal Church. "There's more to life here," he says, adding that he believes in reincarnation. "After seeing Derek Trucks, how could I not?" he writes, referring to the band's current slide guitarist, nephew of founding drummer Butch Trucks, whose lyrical playing is reminiscent of Duane's.

    Played alone both nights. Great shows. Susan Tedeshchi and scott murawski sat in for bit the 1st night, James Montgomery made an appearance on night 2. Good couple of nights on the waterfront in Boston. They are streaming their PeachFest this weekend for free on Moogis.com

    We were in Atlanta and my husband went. I love them, but didn't want to see Moe. Did I miss a great show?
