I met Gregg Allman.....

If you want to know what 'blue eye soul' sounds like, listen to Gregg Allman.  He truly was one of the most soulful singers ever.  I had the chance to introduce him at Harpos one night.  It just happened to be the night the Tigers won the world series.  The crowd erupted when I walked on stage holding a 4 ft. plastic tiger.  I then lead the crowd in a "give me a T, Give me an I !"  yell.  By the time "Tigers!" was screamed for the third time, the crowd was at a fever pitch.  I then took the microphone and yelled "Detroit, Gregg Allman!"   The roof literally came off.  As I walked off stage, Gregg took my arm and said,  "That's the best introduction I ever got".   I couldn't believe I was looking into the face of the voice that I loved so much.  I simply replied  "I love you Gregg Allman"  Lol!  Here's a clip of the Allman Bros.  RIP Gregg Allman , my midnight rider.
