quote:I just wanted to pass on the following information I received from Willie Perkins about Gregg missing a show during his watch. Mr. Perkins reported that Gregg never missed a show with someone sitting in for him during his watch. There were shows canceled.... but he never missed a show.
Mr. Perkins started with the band in June, 1970 so this show must have been prior to June, 1970.
Hope this helps a little as it narrows the time frame down a bit more (a the search continues).
Willie would know, for sure -- however, there's no doubt about Gregg's absence from this show (see sig line), so I guess it's 1970 or before...
Isn't that something -- Melting Pot, Dan Toler's band, one of the openers at the July 1971 show...
Danny and Jack Pearson would have been such a killer 1-2 punch -- in any band, at any time
sliding over to Bill's post from this morning --
Happy Birthday, Duane Allman -- thanks for leaving the world a better place than you found it, with your music...
