Happy Birthday Gregg


The Midnight Rider himself. Born on this day in 1947, in Nashville Tennessee. Best known for being the frontman and organist for the Allman Brothers Band for the last 40 years, his voice has placed him in 70th place on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Singers”. He is definitely the best white blues singer of all time and remains as having one of the most soulful, distinctive, organically bluesy voices ever.

Although his health has faltered slightly as of late, he still tours and just this year has released his best solo effort yet on the T-Bone Burnett produced Low Country Blues.

Here he is playing a little solo acoustic…

Thank you, Gregg, for all the years of awesome rock songs, your relentless touring schedule, many years at the Beacon, and your appearance in the 1991 film Rush.

I hope your health holds up for many more years.
