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.
