So here i am being dragged (kicking and screamming) into this world of COMPUTERISM! Involving a language I have never heard before. So here I am now Hittin' The Web with the Allman Brothers Band Forum. WOW! What a site! If someone had told me that i would spend hours and hours on just one site (when i got the internet in April of this year) i would have told them they were crazy. WOW! What a site.
First THANKS to Lana and Rowland for their time and patience. Also Gregg Allman and the numerous Band collaberations to date, keeping the Band going with the help of GOD and true friends and of course Forever Duane Allman! When I first got on the forum site in April I couldb't wait to post something and get involvrd. At first I had gotton three P.M.s(theres one of them computers things ((PMs) of course it took me awhile to realize I had gotten them. Two of them were Welcomes and one not so much but then they didn't know at the time i was a "NEWBIE". However I did get some good advice as to just cruise around the site and see whats going on. WOW! What a site!!
Man I couldn't believe the wealth of information and insights on all the different Threads(oops, theres another one of them computer words) Almost anything and everthing possibly related to the Allman Brothers Band could be found here...What have I been missing?
I think one of the things that impressed me the most were people using the terms of "family"," Brothers and Sisters" and if I can help in any way. Also the willingness to share their experiences and knowledge.
Something that did get my curiosity up was noticing that usually there were a lot more guest on site versus how many members were on........Well after spending hours and hours (thanks you got me hooked) rummaging around the different threads I have come to realize something. When I first saw this site I didn't hesitate a split second to sign up, Because it is the Allman Brothers Band site. WOW! What a site!....Now I see a lot of interest in the site by guest coming through but only new members every once in awhile. Could it be the impression we give when new people come around and they hear bickering, arguing, name calling and some down right nasty things being said? I thought a TROLL (there's another one of those computer words) was a place in Helen Ga. Bet you didn't think a cracker from Fl. knew that did ya. Sister lives in Cleveland.
I've seen (read) a lot of good things on this site and hope others have also. I hope i am not out of line bringing this up. Give a newbie a break, say hi to the new guy on tha list and can someone tell me where the damn spell chek button is?
THANKS AGAIN,
SONNY ROBERTS
SUNNY MELBOURNE FLORIDA!

Hello Sonny! Nice post! This is a wonderful community!! I have made some of my nearest and dearest friends here. We are family/ Brothers and Sisters!!! It's even better when we get together at the shows too. You are in Florida so you'll get a chance for some ABB shows in Oct. Some haven't been announced yet but they are coming! You should have been at Wanee! It's one place where a huge population of us gather!

Welcome, Sonny!! We're practically neighbors! I'm in Ormond Beach.

Like you, I fight all this new technology (still don't own an Ipod) but I enjoy my computer and this is one site I visit every single day. Many friends here. Make yourself at home.

Welcome, Sonny! Nice to 'meet' you and looking forward to getting to know you better through your posts here. You will find that mighty kind folks on this site. And like Sue said - there's nothing like travelling to a far-away place for a show and finding you have friends there. Enjoy!

I tried 3 or 4 other message boards / Forms before finding this one. HTW blew the others away so I stayed and haven't had a need to look for a new home yet! Welcome my friend!

Welcome Sonny, We are from South Florida. I'm sure we'll meet up someday. Wanee is a must. Like Susea said, it is a beautiful gathering of our extended family. Peace.

This group of people are some of the best I ever met and when we talk about brothers, sisters and family, it is the real deal not just some internet politeness

Glad to see you posting

Now get to a show and do some hanging out

Great post Sonny! I got hooked the same way about three and a half years ago. I belong to a few other message boards but spend 95% of my time right here on HTW. 99% of the peeps here are the salt of the earth ready to help with a wealth of info on all subjects ABB and otherwise. Like Sue says, when you start meeting folks at shows and putting faces to names it gets even better. Long live HTW!!!

Welcome Sonny. You have found the best site on the internet and some of the world' greatest people. People here have always and continue to blow me away.

Just avoid assh*les like me and you will be fine.

Wait till he discovers the trades and vines sections.
