This looks very cool:

The trailer mentions Gregg but, oddly, there is nothing about Duane. Hope the full movie includes him.

Grand day out at the O2 to watch "Freddy" Camalier's excellent film about Muscle Shoals and to catch a glimpse of Gregg singing five songs afterwards.

The film told me so much I never knew about the goings on in Muscle Shoals beween Rick Hall, Jerry Wexler and The Swampers. The talking heads' anecdotes were totally interesting and cast new light on things (apart from the story about Duane's injured elbow, the Taj Mahal album and Coricidin bottle - still sounds a bit contrived to me!).

The soundtrack was great, helped by a mighty PA system.

The gig afterwards was fine: John Paul White of The Civil Wars opened with a mixed bag of songs from the film, his own songs and a Whippin' Post. I thought he was rather good.

Gregg was fine - he ran through Midnight Rider, Dark End of the Street, These Days, Can't Be Satisfied and Melissa. Bizarrely, he seemed to be dressed as a Park Ranger!

He said he is "doing his level best" to get the ABB over to Europe, but has also said that he has stacks of new songs written and that he believes in the Tooth Fairy...

Great to see so many of the UK Peach Corps - it's been a while!

The trailer mentions people who were interviewed for the story, that's why he's in the credits.

Just saw the movie. Def. worth seeing. Not going to give any particulars so as to not spoil it for whoever hasn't seen it yet. Inspiring to say the least.

Watched it last night on DirecTV on Demand. Thought it was pretty great. There is a 3 minute or so section devoted strictly to Duane Allman.
