Saw him about 6 times. Every show top notch. Band was always impeccable. Didn't care much for his personality, but the guy had chops and was a great musician.this...
I saw BR as a 13 year old drummer. 1975.
Sat nearly right in front of his kit. Front row.
(Was upset with my mom because we arrived late, room was packed with the back wall lined with folks standing. only two seats available, in front of his kit.).
Yeah...ears were ringing after.
I forgot about that one! Now that’s actually a fun solo to listen to, an exception. But, I remember being at a concert years ago when the Allman Bros we’re headining. I had been there all day. At some point the drummers decided to do a solo and the rest of the band walked offstage, so I knew it was gonna be a long one. After several minutes, I started leaving because I was tired and the solo was boring even though they were both great drummers. The concert was downtown by the river in Memphis, so as I was leaving and getting near my car I could still hear the drums reverberating off the buildings, and it took about 5 minutes to get to my car! I’m over solos, even long guitar solos, at concerts. Never cared for them actually. But apparently a lot of people love them, I guess.I can’t say I remember because I usually take that time to drain the lizard or have a smoke. But the one that sorta sticks in my mind is Frankenstein. There’s a drum solo in there right?
