So glad for all the wonderful music this band has provided for the past 45 years ...

Through good times ... bad times ... happy times ... and sad times ...

The music will live with me for as long as I draw breath ...

And the road full of all the friendships that I have made because of it will truly go on forever ...

Well said Colin.


I discovered the band way back in 1973 or 1974 after seeing them perform One Way Out on a television show called ABC's In Concert . That's all it took.

Next stop was Idlewild South, which will always be my favorite as it was my first. After that it was "have to own them all".

I left the fold for a few years after Enlightened Rouges (I'm allergic to Keytars... ) but when the box set Dreams came out well....had to have it and that brought it all back again.

11 years in and this site has definitely been a major part of my musical life here on the Net. And thanks to the generosity of many fine folks here, I have so many live shows from many fine bands that I am still trying to listen to them all once and probably will still be doing that for a long while.

Nice site. Very nice folks, some of whom are now close friends. Great music discussions. Great music.

What else do you need anyway?

The sun came up today, I guess the world will go on.

But it sure feels like we're missing a part of us.

I don't know if I ever shared this before but....I was dead set against the name Grace when Barbara was carrying Daniel. I associated it with an aunt of mine....

But as time went by and Barbara carried Grace, I warmed to the name and now I can't imagine it being anything else.

Glorious show Tuesday night, and an incredible experience.

The ABB and Family have been so kind to me over the years. Just want to say to all my friends here that I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to meet ya'll and consider you my friends, brothers and sisters. Love ya. It's been a great ride. Didn't want to leave the Beacon, so we stayed upstairs until the morning light....

Was thinking of all of you throughout the show, especially those no longer roaming the earth with us. They played for all of us, loud enough for all the souls to hear, and gave everything they had one last time. What a special night.

g'day loungers it was about 1972 when i first read about Duane in Rolling Stone. The heavenly guitar harmonies with Clapton on Layla that they wrote about had me intrigued and I had to get that album. Then 'Beginnings' was my first ABB record. A double album first track was Whipping Post and I was hooked. Eat a Peach Mountain Jam I drove so many people crazy, listen to this listen listen to this.. I was a Donovan fan and 'There is a Mountain' was and is my favourite Donovan track. Still have the 45 single. OMG.
Lost touch for many years (didn't even know the band were stlll going) until the wonders of the internet found me here.
I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to travel to NYC in 2011 to see the band. twice. it is one of those íf only' regret things that i will not have to regret. life goes on..

I discovered the ABB in '71 when my older sisters brought home At the Fillmore East. I loved playing all their cool records on that kickass stereo but AFE really spoke to me. I couldn't explain it then and I still can't. They had their own unique style that included all the elements that I enjoy in music. I couldn't stop playing that thing. Then we got tickets to see them at the Music Carnival that summer in late Aug. THey had a revolving stage. The live show was just as satisfying and I'll never forget it. The road goes on forever. Thank you brother Duane, for your vision and your extreme talent.

Good Morning everyone.
I was fortunate to be able to attend the final 2 shows.
Getting out of the Beacon at 1:45 was unreal.
