One of my life's regrets (among many) is sleeping in my car, drenched and stoned to the bone, and missing Butterfield's Woodstock (and Hendrix's ) monday morning sets.

I do like a good harp!

Always have.

Currently I am deepening my familiarity of Memphis Charlie Musselwhite; boy can blow!

Great blues/soul band with, yeah, great harp.  My blood runs cold.  Probably from that sno-cone.

Reasons to be Cheerful Part 3, 12 inch verson.

Is the sax solo great? Is the guitar solo great?

I'll say no. they're not "great" but they're much better than "good enough" and this band does a great job all together.

I never really recognized before that they switch it up. With the background singers in the beginning doing the "Reasons..." for the first two verses, and then Ian doing it while the backing vocalists do the front piece in the back of the song.

I don't think this band gets the props it deserves. It's seen as a novelty act by most people. But then, so was James Brown. Mention JB and most people will do some lame "Het" as I that encapsulates JB. And like if you mention Michael Jackson, they do a "EEEE heee!" as if that was all MJ was about. Mention the Blockheads and "Sex and Drugs and Rock And Rollll." (which is a good song, but.

Paul Greengrass runs the end crawl with this song in all his Bourne films.  I like this lyrics video of "Extreme Ways" ---

And here is Pink singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," at the Oscars in 2014...

Pink is awesome, she has a great voice.

Salute,

What!?

I missed that. I can't say it's a surprise. I was more surprised to find out he was only 69, but that makes sense too when I figure he was about 10 years older than I back in the day.

He... well here it is Midnight Rider affected me deeply when I was one (in my own small, juvenile idiom) I felt like I was there had done that.

It just spoke to the indomitable spirit within. I guess there are lots of their songs that fit an occasion like this, "One Way Out" "In memory of Elizabeth Reed"

There really comes to a point where, what's the point? You can't add substantially to the praise that the life lived has already engendered.

I will opine that this ending still lives within the "Hope I Die Before I Get Old" ball field. 69 is still a young death, it's not like a Tony Bennett death in that he's OLD! and we'll all be older when he's gone. Living just revoked Gregg's franchise.

Just an aside, the other morning I was at the Southgate (down the street from The Cabin which some of you know for Pizza in Bath, ME) for breakfast and I was sitting at the counter and I whistled a little bit to myself. Out of the corner of my eye I could see the guy next to me (who had rather brusk when I asked him if the seat was occupied) kind of doing a double take. So I stopped. Then he asked, "Were you just whistling?"

"Yeah, sorry, I didn't mean to disturb..."

"Was it Peaches in Regalia?"

"YES!" High 5.

Point being that even after all this time FZ lives!

That's what will happen with the greats (of which Gregg Allman is certainly one) their music lives on.

PLAU (What's so funny about that?)

"One Way Out" and "Done Somebody Wrong" were covers. Elmore James.
