Gregg Allman Already Itching To Record Again
"I'll tell ya, I can't wait to get back in there and cut another one," Allman said in a just-published interview with Billboard.com. "That would be fine with me. It really would. It seems like every time we do a record it somehow gets your writing juices flowing. That kind of stuff just starts to come forward, so I'm hoping that maybe for the next one I can write a bunch of [new songs]."
Allman went on to say it was a meeting last summer with T-Bone Burnett, who produced Low Country Blues, that rekindled his interest in making a solo disc. "One of the first things out of [Burnett's] mouth was [longtime Allman Brothers Band producer] Tommy Dowd – that almost sold me right there," Allman said. "Plus, he was there in Memphis with two architect friends of his and they were measuring the Sun Records building board by board, and he was going to replicate it right next to his house. And I was like, 'Man, that's the hippest thing I've ever heard!' So I decided to give it a try." - more on this story
