Hank, Layla and Farmer

It's a little like holding Excalibur. During his time working with The Allman Brothers Band at The Beacon, Hank does have his moments when he gets to rub shoulders with legends like Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Jaimoe Johanson and Butch Trucks but here is something that is giving me chills miles away from The Beacon here in Brooklyn; moments spent with the beautiful Goldtop Duane Allman played on "Layla" Oh magic Goldtop, bless us...In the background a chair stands in for another legend, the dear too recently departed Farmer. For those who knew Farmer, they know he didn't sit very much. Farmer was guitar tech god, the best of the best. Every note played from every guitar in his care was charged with his magic. These shows at the Beacon are missing him terribly, but the boys bravely soldier on and keep his chair handy in talisman and tribute.
