New Album Release: “Mr. Kool”
My latest single is out! It’s entitled “Macon,” in honor of the town where the Allman Brothers Band lived and worked. “Macon” is an instrumental in Southern Rock style. I wrote it with my producer, Michael Cornett. He played acoustic guitar on the track. Hal Roddy played bass, and Thomas Pinson played drums. I played electric guitar and keyboards. The basic concept is that, magically, the ABB get together at a mysterious studio at an undisclosed location somewhere in the cosmos. The Brothers play the main theme together. After that, Duane takes the first solo, then Chuck, and then Dickey. Gregg is there throughout the proceedings on organ to hold things together and establish the basic tone. After the solos, the Brothers play the main theme again. The tune ends with some ABB-style riffs.
“Macon” is humbly intended as a tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time. Nothing can replace the ABB. NOTHING. I wish that they were still making music together. I miss them.
