Starting today, March 7, the Allman Brothers begin 14 sold-out shows at New York's Beacon Theater, where they will celebrate their 45th anniversary. It could be the beginning of the end for the band, as guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes have announced that they will no longer with the group after this year.
As for me, I am also the senior writer for Guitar World magazine and the frontman for a blues band. My first book, "Big In China", is a memoir about my years living in Beijing and fronting a Chinese blues abnd that played all over the country. Ivan Reitman is developing it for a film. So if you are curious about life in China or Chinese blues, ask me anything!
I'll be online all day, until I have to leave for the first Beacon show, answering your questions, so let's rock! I'll doubleback to anythig that comes in after I leave.
