Stars team up in Atlanta to salute Gregg Allman

1/13/2014

On Friday night (January 10th) Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers Band were among the many performers who took the stage at Atlanta's Fox Theatre at the All My Friends: Celebrating The Songs & Voice Of Gregg Allman tribute concert.

Highlights included performances by Jackson Browne, Sam Moore, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, John Hiatt, Zac Brown, Keb’ Mo’, Train's Pat Monahan, Martina McBride, and Widespread Panic, among others.

We asked Gregg Allman, who's busy working on his next solo album, if while recording his last solo set -- Low Country Blues -- just prior to his 2011 liver transplant, if it was frustrating sitting on a great new album while laid up after life-risking surgery: "Yeah, but I tell you what, it was a good thing to heal up for, y'know (laughs)? I mean, knowing that you got a really, really potential record in the can -- I mean, to me it's really good. And as long as it hits right here in your heart, man, it's. . . that's the way I've always felt about it. And knowing, just knowing that I had this in the can was just a great incentive to get well. So I guess, psychologically, it helped me greatly."
