A PEARL OF AN EVENING - GREGG ALLMAN at The Palms

Day Two of my ever-infamous Three-Day-Migraine couldn't keep me from this last night.  SO glad I "bucked up" and made it - actually wouldn't have missed it unless I had been hospitalized.
66 years young - voice still as strong as "back in the day".  Opening act put one of the founding members of the original Allman Brothers Band back on the same stage - drummer "Jaimoe" Johanson, and his own incredible Jazz band.
The old Allman Brothers tunes TOTALLY made the evening what it was last night, for me at least (I did have "Low Country Blues" in the CD player on the way there - takin' the new with the old) - fresh spins on a few, but "Stormy Monday" (my ALL-time Allman Bros. favorite, and one I had figured I would never see performed by him live, again) and "One Way Out", kinda' kicked the headache in the ass, for a few hours at least.  New travel photos this week, but in the meantime, someone was on top of their video "game" last night, and I thank him for that...gotta' love a rebel in a crowd!

Wooo hooo! Greg Allman! The Allman Brothers were the epitome of Southern rock all those years ago --- or was that just a week ago? Time lies. Greg looks good. Sounds like a fabulous time!
