Hey there sweet family,
Got a little give and get goin’ action for you today.
First the give … A group of lovely people have banded together to form the The Big House Foundation – established to preserve the home and history of the Allman Brothers Band by securing the Big House and its vast memorabilia collection indefinitely. I know this is a project close to many of your hearts as “Save the Big House” has been an ongoing cry in the ABB Forum for ages. So, whoo hooody hoooo! Your voice has been heard! Give it up for the Big House Foundation! (thunderous applause erupts behind computers all over the world!)
