Intro by Bob Rose
NJ/Delaware Music Promoter
Tonight my favorite band of all time The Allman Brothers Band will take their final bow as they bring an incredible 45 year of music to a close at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
I was very fortunate to see the band many times in their 45-year career including many memorable musical experiences. I remember working my last day at a factory job and hitchhiking to Washington DC for two shows at RFK stadium with the Grateful Dead and the journey to Watkins Glen NY with my childhood friend King's X drummer Jerry Gaskill for the show that over 600,000 attended for a one-day festival which including ABB, The Band, and the Dead.
Looking forward to a new memory tonight at the Beacon which may be the last live chapter in my 45 year career of liking and listening live to the Allman Brothers Band.
