    Big loss today in the rock world. Not many recordings better than "Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East".

    I sincerely hope people who are not interested in this do not start trashing you for posting it.
    He was a very talented guy.

    Allman Brothers at the Fillmore East live was one of the greatest albums ever released & highly collectable.

    66G, I lived in Tejas for several years before moving to Oregon. As a Minnesota native, it was a great experience until I realized I was jumping from the freezer to the fire; good money though!
    Houston, 1983-1986: Hurricane Alicia, surf casting & crabbing in Galveston, ZZ Top at the Astrodome.
    Arlington, 1986-1990: BBQ at the original Salt Lick, motorcycle racing at Henderson, on-track at Texas World Speedway in College Station, fishing at Lake Conroe.

    My wife & I have been there a couple times since then; Corpus Christi & Port Isabel. Fun times, and a great state!

    One of the best concerts I saw was the Allman Brothers Band, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, and Ted Nugent... All for the low low price of just $5! No kidding.

    Rest in peace, Gregg Allman

    I get the impression that most of the Ranchero owners/members of this forum are older, like all these aging musicians that are now passing.
    Sure glad our son appreciates the older style of music as well as the cars we love... shrinking the generation gap.

    I thought when he married Cher, THAT would kill him! Believe me, watching Duane and Dickie trade licks was something to behold....I think Duane (Gregg's brother for the uninformed) and Alvin Lee, oh and Clapton, were/are the best white guitar players...or is that guitar players that are white...?;)

    Big loss of talent with his passing, for sure. I'm glad we still have the music, that'll never die.

    We have lost a lot of great talent in the last few years

    Love Midnight Rider. Shame to see legends fall, but the music lives on!

    And the floodgates haven't even been cracked fully open yet. Like Toyroom said, all of the bands/artists we listened to growing up are mostly older than we are (and by we, I mean you old coots). My favorite Allman song....

    That was a then-new tune playing at the eatery where the priests met in the Exorcist.

    Yup, and there doesnt seem to be any new bands of the same calibre coming up to fill their places when they have gone. Of all the bands i listen too, that are still touring are most are now pushing 70!
