The Soundtrack of My Life

by Jan Schroder
High School Prom

Three years ago, I bought three rows at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, inviting 60 of my closest friends to a pre-party at Rhodes Hall for what many of us feared might be the last show of a musician whose voice, songs and music provided the soundtrack of my life.

On Saturday, family and friends laid keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Allman to rest in a Macon cemetery next to two members of The Allman Brothers, including his brother Duane, one of the most remarkable guitar players to ever grace my turntables, 8-tracks, cassettes, iPods, iPhones or cloud.

They will be missed.

way cool Chris – I have a friend who when the band was new, turned down an opportunity to have them play at their mercer fraternity in macon – ya’ll done good – yes they are iconic for any of us from that era -and like some of your classmates on the front row there, i was that close to duane at a concert in the University of chattanooga gym, without realizing the greatness that was witnessing — thanks for your pieces, and your broadcast, all of them
