.... at 63, Gregg Allman holds his own; few have bettered his trademark throaty holler, and aided by his trusty Hammond B-3 the veteran sustains an appealing presence throughout the idiosyncratic variety (and yes, that is Dr John’s understated piano fills in the left-hand speaker).Guardian
Gregg Allman is the archetypical survivor, a hero with the Allman Brothers Band in the 70s, and a man whose famously wild career has involved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, six marriages and a liver transplant.

I was thinking about the late Son Seals today. He used to have a tremendously hot band that came up to play Toronto from time to time back in the 80s. Tuffy P and I almost saw him in Chicago a few years after that. I say almost because we paid our cover at some little place in Old Town and went in and the place was jammed. I mean you couldn't move in there. It was so crowded it was dangerous and we decided to bail.
