The mushrooms aren't really mushrooms huh AB? You reckon if I sent this
video to all the railroad CEOs I would get a visit from my friendly
neighborhood watch?

We all get old. Played with this guy several times over the years. The
last time was in Macon, Ga. in 1989 in a hotel bar. It was packed. No
synthesisers for this music, its the real thing played from the gut. He
just had a hip replacement and has one eye glued shut.

Also played a lot with this guy years ago. He and I have both mellowed
out. He was a session musician in NY for years and did commercials.

You want to hear a harmonica player, check this guy out. Known him for
years. He got the name Fingers because he started on the organ.

Guess I didn't have the guts to stick it out with a family. Makes a
hard life on kids growing up. I had some great times in years past. I
was never great, but could hold my own with southern rock or blues.
Some Ernie Ball Super Slinkys and you can make a guitar talk.

I'm just hanging out waiting for a couple of days.

Allman Brothers

While we're waiting on me to make my next move:

Didn't know you played.
Ever play Harmonica?

Was jammin with my son and a few friends in WV a couple weeks ago.  One
guy breaks out "A" "C" "D" and a "G" harmonicas and ask for me
to give it a try.  I had never played one before with guitar.  You
can't seem to hit a wrong note, especially if you're playing the same
key.

Stopped at a Hardware/ music store in Folkston, Ga about a month ago,
picked up a mandolyn and we played for an hour.

Guess, we're not all Vermon.

Guess Gary Sease and CSX don't care about a poke in the eye.  Two days
left!  We'll see how it turns out, may not be that bad.

Good music there AB.

So the state hangs the wrong guy who kills 5 more people in South
Carolina 10 years later and is strung up in a swamp. That's three
wrongful hangings in two weeks I found.

"There's a creek or branch of water halfway be-
tween the city of Sumter and Shaw Air Force Base
on the old Sumter-Stateburg Highway, now Highway
76 to Columbia. This branch was known prior to 1890
as Green Swamp. In 1890 the name was changed to
Simon Cooper Branch because a man by this name
was hung here from the limb of a big gum tree. From
that day the swamp has been known as Simon Cooper
Branch, and it is so termed on the county maps and
records."

1897 - On January 8, Simon Cooper was lynched for murder in Sumter,
South Carolina.

Actually your correct Pines. I have seen it both ways. But Reid was the
correct spelling. It depends on who you talk to. It is even spelled
wrong on many of the albums. A long story.

...dickey was dating a latin girl and used to take her to the cemetary
in question where he would write music, bang chicks, etc. :note latin
feel in song. he said he couldn't use her name so he picked the name
of the closest gravestone which said "in memory of elizabeth
reed"...

Well Dickey fibbed or couldn't read. Why are there fences around
cemetaries and not railroad tracks?

There were two reasons I selected to use the name Allman Brothers, Nomo.
One I won't divulge, the other is exactly what you said about
"Whipping Post." In order to work for the company it feels like you
are tied to a whipping post every day. It wasn't always this way, I
enjoyed it at one time. I lived in Macon for several years, played alot
of guitar and enjoyed life. Lived on the Gray Hwy. many years ago. 

Now that the break is over, back to safety.

Man dead in coal railcar had "RUSH" tattoo 
RICHMOND, Texas  Fort Bend County authorities say an unidentified man
found dead in a coal railcar had the word "RUSH" tattooed on his
right shoulder, the Associated Press reports. 
Two of the victim's fingers were painted with blue nail polish. 

Sheriff's investigators are trying to identify the man discovered
Monday as crews dumped a load of coal at the W.A. Parish Power Plant in
Richmond. 

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe railcar was hauling a load for Coal
Creek Mining of Wyoming. 

Officials say the cause of death appears to have been blunt force
trauma to the head. 

Investigators say the train left Coal Creek last Friday, stopping in:
Denver; Pueblo, Colorado; La Junta, Colorado; Amarillo and Temple,
before arriving Monday in Richmond

The original studio recording of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is the
fourth song on the group's 1970 album Idlewild South. It is an
instrumental song written by guitarist Dickey Betts, the first of
several Allmans instrumentals to be written by him, and the first
original instrumental song written by a member of the band.

The song is named after a headstone Betts saw at the Rose Hill Cemetery
in Macon, Georgia.[1] By no coincidence both Duane Allman and Berry
Oakley are buried in the same cemetery as Elizabeth Reed, as it was a
place frequented by the band in their early days, for relaxing and
writing songs, among other things.

"Elizabeth Reed" has appeared on numerous Allman Brothers live
albums, first and most notably At Fillmore East, which many fans and
critics believe is the definitive rendition.
