Hello folks. My name is Thomas, and I actually created my account here about a year and a half ago. After the first Wanee, I googled Allman Brothers discussion board and found this site. I've been reading this board more often over the past few months. Threre are some real kind folks on here, and I've actually had the chance to meet some of you at Wanee. Let's see, I introduced myself to bluedad at Wanee 2006, then I saw him in the instant live line in ATL last year and said hello. This year at Wanee, I met BDOB, Haisija, Krishna, Scott, LinnieXX, Drummy, Jumboshrimp, Slammer, Freebird1975, Ayla, and others.

I work in the restaurant business, and a couple years ago I decided that I would go back to school for a business degree. Been chippin' away at my AA degree for the past two years, and in a couple of months I should find out if I get into UF, here in Gainesville where I live. (Yes, I've seen the Brothers of the Road dvd, and I love it!)

I'm sure that I'd heard ABB on the radio while growing up in the 70s, but my first exposure that I recall is a southern rock compilation cassette that I bought in 1983 or so (I was 13). I was a HUGE Lynyrd Skynyrd fan at that point. The tape had bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mountain, Wet Willie, and it also had "Ramblin' Man" by the ABB.

I went to see an outdoor country music concert with my mom back in 1980, or 81, and Hank Jr. brought out Dickey Betts with him to play on a few songs. I remember them sitting on stools, playing guitar, and passing a bottle of Jack Daniels back and forth.

Around that same time, I remember hearing "Midnight Rider" on the radio and I would sing along with it. I guess it was maybe the Gregg solo version maybe?? The one that goes "NAH NAH NAH..."

Anyhoo, I don't think I ever bought any ABB records growing up. I was more into Skynyrd, then Zeppelin, then heavy metal for a while. I mean I was always a fan of classic rock. I would hear ABB songs on the radio that would blow me away...Liz Reed, One Way Out, Statesboro, etc.

In the 90's, I enjoyed going to see shows by bands such as The Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic and Phish, etc. I also got turned onto bluegrass by going out to Magnoliafest at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak.

I was really excited when Wanee 2005 was announced, and I would get to see the ABB for the first time. I feel fortunate that we get to experience this great live music, this far down the road in their career! I get that same great feeling that I'm sure you guys are familiar with, from this music!

See y'all in Atlanta this year, hopefully!

Thomas
