And who'd have thought they would last this long? I became a fan in '96 and saw them for the first time in '97. I didn't know the ins and outs of their history at that point but the band was already almost 30 years old. I don't think I would have expected to be seeing them in five years, but my last show was 17 years after my first. And then of course there's all the travel and friendship and amazing music that came in between.

It was a special privilege to witness Tuesday nights performance. Walked into The Beacon with some trepidation. Walked out of The Beacon completely satisfied. I thought losing The Brothers could be like losing a loved one. Instead I'm walking away a proud soul who luckily connected to Duane's magical musical vision.

Thanks to the Allman Brothers Band for 45 years of greatness and the best jamming of all time. There is no better band with the skill of jamming that takes it to another level. I was not fortunate enough to go to the shows at the Beacon but watched some of the videos and the band played like their life depended on it. Warren and Derek played liked 2 men possessed as I knew they would to the end. Luckily through videos and CDs we will always have the memories to get us through so this amazing band will never be forgotten.

I just listened to most of last night's show at my desk on the Sirius/XM broadcast and it was as good as reviews. Wow!

Here are my musical thoughts today:

The ABB limped off the scene in 1982. When they reunited in 1989, who here would have bet they would have actually enhanced their legacy? And as unlikely as that was, they did just that.

Gregg, Butch, Jaimoe, and Dickey (before his exit) were really pushed by surrounding themselves with world class talent and kindred spirits in Warren, Derek, Woody, Jackie P, Marc and Oteil. Nostalgia was always part of the appeal, but by pairing themselves with Horde acts in the '90s & younger Bonnaroo bands last decade, and always featuring new covers and originals in the set, they kept themselves relevant. Intense is not how the ABB would have been described in 1982, but intensity absolutely defines the past 25 years.

And the franchise that was the Beacon Run will go down as one of their most endearing legacies. I was amazed in those 10 trips how the Upper West Side became Allmanville. The band felt a freedom to go deep in the catalog and invite the widest range of musical guests and the ABB fanbase appreciated their experimentation. Each show was unique art, particularly in the last 14 years.

And I was glad High Cost of Low Living didn't get skipped again last night! This lineup put out a very solid album with some great songs and it was fitting to include something from that record in last night's final statement. High Cost, particularly the coda, is prime Allman Brothers playing and material regardless of era. Dickey's influence is front & center on that song even without him having played on it, but it also perfectly showcases the uniqueness (Derek) and integrity (Warren) the latter day tandem brought to this grand American institution.

Long live the music of the Allman Brothers Band!

The road will go on forever because there will always be people looking to travel, memories of where we've been, bonds we've forged, and music to guide the way. Thanks to the band and to Lana and Rowland for helping to bring us together.
