yes. He is ok, though. Jaimoe is so thoughtful and he knows he is well loved and who he is, and has a strong family.

Thank you for posting this. I'm glad that Jaimoe is doing well considering how he lost Butch and now Gregg.

I agree with him when he said this:
I played with Otis Redding and Percy Sledge and saw Ray Charles and B.B. King and every other great and I'll tell you this: there's not anybody I ever heard who sang with more truth and passion than Gregory. He was at the very top of whatever what was going on with singers. And that **** about him being "one of the great white blues singer" is straight **** . He's a great blues singer. A great singer, period - and those lyrics he would write were incredible. The amazing thing about Gregory Allman is the fact that his music and influences were based on rhythm and blues but his songwriting was so influenced by people like [Bob] Dylan and Jackson Browne and other people who wrote poems. Combining those two things is what made him so unique.

And Gregory was a hell of a keyboard player, too, and his great singing overshadowed his organ playing. Less is more is supposed to be a big thing now; well, he was doing it big a long time ago. What's interesting is he could play a solo that was just eight bars, but was perfect. With what he played, he didn't need to play no more. He could play exactly what needed to be played.


Right on.

"He's a great blues singer. A great singer period" no truer words spoken. Thank you Jaimoe.
