    Rip

    Some 10 to 12 years ago I am standing at the local Publix market in Bonita Springs at the deli counter and am bored to death. I said, "I feel as if I am watching grass grow".. The guy next to me laughed and said he was giving a concert in Fort Myers and if I like to have a free ticket. He said his name was Gregg Allman. Didn't know him and due to his long hair I thought he was some kind of a punk and politely declined. The girl behind the counter was about to kill herself..I later learned, who he was.

    Way back in the early '80's, I was his waitress at a local bar/restaurant in Atlanta. He acted like a jerk all night, ate and drank up a huge bill with his friends, made a massive mess, broke things, spilled things all over the table, the floor and even me, didn't tip and didn't pay for the cigarettes I bought for him from the machine.

    I am sure other people had better encounters with him but this is the impression he left with me and which I never forgot. Rich and famous guy treats 'the help' like garbage. Not really news.

    Still wouldn't wish an early death on him.

    RIP. Music "A", character "F".

    Sad to hear about his death, but grateful he left such a catalog of music for us. I saw him in concert once in the mid-80's. It was the Gregg Allman Band opening up for Stevie Ray Vaughan. Great outdoor concert!

    Along with Santana's 'Abraxas' and Miles Davis's 'B it ches Brew,' the Allman Brothers's 'Live at Fillmore East' was one of a handful of albums I listened to most, senior year.

    I know it is an old cliche but they really don't make music like this anymore and probably won't.Sad what has happened to music,it is now processed and packaged .I can not even listen to the radio anymore.RIP Gregg.

    Couldn't EVER start a trip to the mountains to our summer house without a loud thumping Statesboro Blues playing. Still can't.😊
