All of Georgia is mourning for Greg Allman today as he is laid to rest in Macon. Allman died in his Savannah home from complications of liver cancer and I find myself up listening to his music tonight. He was born in Nashville but considered Macon his home.
Though the Allman Brothers were more my older siblings thing, when I was in college I used to go to a bar in Athens called The Foundry to shoot pool with my friend Julia. I reckon that is not a thing anymore, but me and Julia would go there together, and there was an actual juke box that had Whipping Post on it. We’d play that song over and over and leave with the local boys instead of the UGA preps and get in all sorts of trouble.
Thanks for the fond memories, Greg.
Today, former President Jimmy Carter, Cher, and many others are in Macon to give Greg a big send off. I’m there in spirit.
If you are going down. Here’s some info regarding driving.
My his soul shine on…
