Apologize if there is another thread on this, but I needed to express how thankful I am for these 2 people who had a vision and a love for this band which became this site. I have been on here since the 90's and it has changed and grown tremendously over the yrs. The friendships that have been made and the escalated experience of Allman Brother shows in general for me have been something I will never be able to express properly because it has literally changed my life.

Thank you so much for giving us this amazing place to share with like minded brothers and sisters.

I am honered to be associated with this fantastic extended family.

Lana and Rowland for everything you do and have done, it doesnt feel like enough but THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart

Amen Dave! Whether or not other threads exist, you have said it well. From the old site to this one, they created a community that I have not seen elsewhere on the internet. Obviously took many awesome members also but Lana, Rowland and the ABB provided the platform.

Thank you!

I'd like to add my sincere gratitude. My posting is minimal but I've enjoyed this forum tremendously. I'm so thankful for the pre-sale opportunities and the show of a lifetime I saw last night. I hope your efforts will bring you both good karma. Peace and thanks again!

Well said. I found this place in Spring 1997. My ABB experience has been significantly enhanced by the people I've met through here. And the ABB benefited greatly by their good work, too.

I hope the Archers got to sleep in late today!

Kudos from this corner as well!

Thank You!....For providing us with this forum and the open mindedness to discuss everything from the brothers and our shared loved of their gift of music, to wine and politics.

You two rock!

I will join in: A BIG thank you to Lana and Rowland. This is a wonderful place to hang out and discuss music or whatever else is on your mind and I've met some great people here. Not to mention receiving some great music in the mail from other Peachheads.

Love to those who started the place I've hung out in since 1999--and who became friends.

Thanks for all you two have done. Who would've thought the Forum would last this long? 17 years so far. As the band evolves and plays with other players in their own band, at least they know they can count on you guys to provide the foundation that has been a mainstay as much as the music. A place to sit down and learn what's going on in music, politics and the world. There's no place else like this, and that's the biggest compliment to what you have created. Thank you!

Thanks for always helping me get the most enjoyment out of my favorite band, be it here or by running fan club presales. Without both of these things I could have never experienced so many great moments the same way time and time again.

What they all said Thanks for having the best band site in the land. I am going to miss the groove we all get into with the live shows. It was a hell of a run.

This Forum has travelled with me through several cities and a lot of ups and downs. It has been a great and needed constant.

Thanks!

I'm glad I got to hug Lana and Rowland and tell them "thank you!" in person last night. I ran into them at Kirk's exhibit where I stopped by before walking up to Carmine's and there they were and I was so happy! I think it was fate that we ran into each other because I was wearing a t-shirt given to me by L&R for my 50th birthday. That shirt wanted to see them again and so did I.

Amen to what everyone already posted!

Lana & Roland, it was a huge surprise and a great honor to have you join us for dinner at Carmine's before the final show. I feel so blessed to have been able to hug you both and thank you in person for all the happiness you have brought into my life.

....and hey, the after dinner music was pretty good too!

Dave, thanks for starting this thread -- you summed it all up. Lana and Rowland, you guys have touched so many lives positively over the years by building this site and maintaining it. My active time here was relatively brief but, like Dave said, totally changed my life. Thank you so much.

Huge heartfelt thank you Rowland and Lana! For this site, for the parties you threw, for all the hard work you put in on the pre-sales and for all the things that you have done.

I honestly do not have the appropriate words - Thank You!
