Is anyone going to ATL for Berry Oakley's induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame this Saturday?

Was planning on it several weeks ago, then decided to head further south for Gram Parsons Fest, biz and visiting friends in Jax, and TT & RB in Jax Sunday.

Congrats, BO!

If I lived anywhere close, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

It was Duane's band but Berry made it go.

Honestly, I think Berry was the second most important member of the ABB other than Duane, in my opinion, with Dickey a very close third. He was a defining factor in laying down the foundations of the ABB sound, build the base with the bass, and roll on.

I visited that building once and caught at least six mistakes in a couple hours time.

Mr.Oakley is too good for that kind of treatment.


I hope you sent a short letter to Hall officials noting the mistakes so they could correct them. If not, why not?

I wish that I had known about this in time to plan for it. Niece's birthday party, football gig ... DAMNIT!!!

Congrat's to the Oak, though! The original anchor of the Allman Brother''s Band!
