Gregg Allman's Birthday Celebrated With 'Song for Adam' Video

In addition, a special concert celebrating Allman's 70th birthday will be held Friday night at The Fillmore in San Francisco. "Song for Adam" features background vocals from Jackson Browne, and was produced by Don Was. When Gregg recorded his version of the tune, his voice broke with emotion during the final verse because it reminded him of his brother and band mate Duane Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle crash at age 27. Unfortunately, that day never came and producer Don Was chose to put the song on the album unfinished.

"(Gregg) stopped singing in the middle of the song; he couldn't sing the next two lines. The line-up also includes Philly blues/funk favorite G. Love, "sacred steel" guitar virtuoso and bandleader Robert Randolph, North Mississippi Allstar members Luther and Cody Dickinson, keyboard legend Bobby Whitlock - who was a member of Delaney and Bonnie and Eric Clapton's short-lived group with Duane Allman, Derek and the Dominoes - Wet Willie frontman and Jeff Beck singer Jimmy Hall, longtime musical director/keyboardist for the Gregg Allman Band Pete Levin, Alex Orbison (the son of famed '50s troubadour Roy Orbison) and singer Samantha Fish. "It was a fitting exit".

The video itself was directed by Erica Alexandria Silverman and stars Zach Chance (Jamestown Revival), Yates Robertson, Zoe Graham, and Johnny McPhail. Posthumously issued in September, Southern Blood was recently nominated for two Grammy Awards, including Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song for the album track "My Only True Friend". He was a motorcycle riding badass, who lived and died in Florida.
