This old town ain't been the same Since this old boys been gone
Lord I still got some good friends But I feel so all alone
All I hear is disco See pretty boys with high heels on
Well, some people sure hate me And police dog me round
Well, the only place I'm welcome Is on the west side of town
Well, I'm on the wanted posters I can't show my face in town, alright

Play this one for south side

Jacksonville, I love you But you don't want me around
 Jacksonville, you raised me And this is where I got my sound
Although I'm your outlaw I still love my hometown, all around

Ahh, this is for the west side boys

This old town ain't been the same Since your native sons been gone
Lord, I still got some old friends But I am so all alone
All I hear is disco See pretty boys with high heels on
Well, you can keep your disco Pretty boys with high heels on

"In Memory of Elizabeth Reed"  Allman Brothers

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/Wo6NbP0IbOQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/Wo6NbP0IbOQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Overview

The original studio recording of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is the fourth track on the group's 1970 album Idlewild South. Composed by Dickie Betts, it is the first instrumental written by a bandmember. The original Rolling Stone review of Idlewild South said the song "just goes and goes for a stupendous, and unnoticed, seven minutes."[1]

The song is named after a headstone Betts saw at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia,[2] a place frequented by band members in their early days to relax and write songs. Considerable legend has developed about what Betts was doing at the time, some originated by a possibly put-on interview Duane Allman gave Rolling Stone.[3] The cemetery was later memorialized by the band as the final resting spot of both band leader Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley.

The Rolling Stone Album Guide called "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" in its original studio incarnation "the blueprint of a concert warhorse, capturing the Allmans at their most adventurous."[4] The New York Times has written that "its written riffs and jazz-ish harmonies [allow] improvisers room."[5] Accordingly, "Elizabeth Reed" has appeared in many Allman Brothers concerts, sometimes running half an hour or more,[6] and on numerous Allman Brothers live albums, but first and most notably on At Fillmore East, which many fans and critics believe is the definitive rendition. In 2007, Rolling Stone named "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" one of its Fifty Best Songs Over Seven Minutes Long[7] – and in giving it Honorable Mention on its 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time list made 2008, Rolling Stone called the At Fillmore East performance "transcendant".[8]

Danny Joe Brown, (August 24, 1951 – March 10, 2005)[1] was a member of the Southern rock group Molly Hatchet, and singer and co-writer of the band's biggest hits from the late 1970s.

He was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1951 and graduated from Terry Parker High School in 1969.[2] Shortly after graduating, he enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard and was stationed in New York for two years.[2] Once he left the Coast Guard, Brown's focus turned solely to music and joined Molly Hatchet in 1974.

He is best known for writing and singing on such songs as "Flirtin' with Disaster", and "Whiskey Man"; he was also the vocalist on "Dreams I'll Never See", a faster tempoed cover of the Allman Brothers song. The band's sound was immediately recognizable by Brown's distinct voice, a deep, raspy, throaty growl.[2]

Brown left Molly Hatchet in 1980 because of chronic diabetes and pancreatic problems, but soon started his own band, The Danny Joe Brown Band, which released a single studio album in 1981.[3] He later rejoined Molly Hatchet in 1982, only to leave again in 1995 after suffering a stroke. He died at his home in Davie, Florida, at the age of 53, in March 2005. His obituary attributed his death to renal failure, a complication of the diabetes he had since age 19.[1

Some great books coming out...Gregg Allmans autobiography and Ron Eckerman's "Turn it Up".

First chapter of Eckerman's book available on his website:

Quote
Turn it Up!
By Ron Eckerman

A behind-the-scenes narrative of life in the mid-1970's with  the band that defined Southern Rock, the iconic Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Plane crash survivor and former tour manager Ron Eckerman pours out his heart and soul in this memoir of life on the road with the band during their rise to international stardom, including the tragic plane crash that took the lives of singer and songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, back-up singer Cassie Gaines, and assistant tour manager Dean Kilpatrick

http://www.turnitupbook.com/

I just finished reading it and totally enjoyed the experience.  Eckerman goes into great detail about the shows, the personalities, the challenges.

biography
[-] by Bruce Eder
Grinderswitch was a white blues-rock band that never rose above being a second-tier Capricorn Records act, not remotely as popular as the Allman Brothers or the Marshall Tucker Band. But Dru Lombar (vocals, guitar, slide guitar), Larry Howard (guitar), Stephen Miller (keyboards), Joe Dan Petty (bass), and Rick Burnett (drums) built a loyal following in the tens of thousands playing music that was influenced by British blues outfits like John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream and T.S. McPhee's Groundhogs, but also the real article, especially Albert King and Booker T. & the MG's -- Lombar sounded more Black than any White rock singer you've ever heard. They could have been a more soulful and exciting competitor to Canned Heat, but they weren't lucky enough to appear in hit festival movies or get the right single out at the proper time. Working in the commercial shadow of better-known acts, they counted as fans members of the Marshall Tucker Band and a lot of other musicians who felt they deserved a break. The group failed to emerge as much more than a top regional act and an opener for the Allmans and Charlie Daniels, among others, despite recording seven album between 1972 and 1982, first for Capricorn and later for Atlantic.

The Georgia Music Hall of Fame was located in downtown Macon, Georgia from 1996 until it closed in 2011.[1] The Hall of Fame preserved and interpreted the state's rich musical heritage through programs of collection, exhibition, education and performance; it attempted to foster an appreciation for Georgia music and tried to stimulate economic growth through a variety of dynamic partnerships and initiatives statewide. The Hall of Fame closed due to low attendance and reduced state funding.[2][3]

Mercer University purchased the former Hall of Fame building in June 2012; the university will use the building for expanded programs within its School of Medicine.[4]

The Georgia Music Hall of Fame’s institutional history began in 1978 when the Georgia General Assembly created the Senate Music Recording Industry Committee to study the economic impact of the state’s music industry and to explore ways to promote Georgia music and attract music businesses to the state.[5] In 1979, the Committee developed a Georgia Music Hall of Fame program honoring Georgia musicians who have made significant contributions to the music industry, with Ray Charles and music publisher Bill Lowery named the first inductees on Sept. 26, 1979. Owing much to the vision of then Lt. Governor Zell Miller, the Committee also endeavored to create a public museum and archive to document the state’s music heritage and serve as a cultural heritage destination. In 1990, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Authority was created as an instrumentality of the State of Georgia and a public corporation with the stated corporate purpose and general nature: 1) to construct and maintain a facility to house the Georgia Music Hall of Fame; 2) to operate, advertise and promote the Georgia Music Hall of Fame; and 3) to promote music events at the facility and throughout the state. On Sept. 22, 1996, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame opened as a 43,000-square-foot (4,000 m2) facility housing a main exhibit hall, a retail store, the Zell Miller Center for Georgia Music Studies, an administrative wing, a classroom and a reception room. In 1999, the second phase of the museum, The Billy Watson Music Factory, an interactive and interpretive exhibit space for pre-K through elementary students, opened. The hall was closed on June 12, 2011 due to lack of attendance. The exhibits are now being housed at the University of Georgia, Georgia State University, the University of West Georgia and in private collections.[6]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Music_Hall_of_Fame

Are these type of museums obsolete?
