Illness In Boca Raton, Fla

Instrumental Illness, I mean. I saw The Allman Brothers Band the other night in Boca... 13th row, DEAD CENTER, (thanks Sis) and the boys did not disappoint. Before the show I had told a friend that Warren and Derek have obviously made it their personal mission to turn every song played into the hardest jam ever heard. As usual, there was blistering, shredding incendiary guitar. These 2 gunslingers own the west, and the east, and the north and even the south. The highlights were Instrumental Illness and Dreams. At one point during Dreams, Warren was WAILING and just when you think he cannot take it higher, the man ASSAULTED the guitar and ran a scale so hard, so fast, I turned to my friend and told him that we had, perhaps, just heard the greatest riff in rock n roll history. Derek, of course, redefined the slide guitar for the entire evening. An interesting side note was the film they played during the set break... great blues by an "unknown" black guitarist from the 50's or 60's... can anyone name that guitarist? If you weren't there you should have been. Warren has proven, again, that he is the straw that stirs the jam-band drink. Thank God I was there. And if anyone has the tape, please do not be shy... spread the wealth.
