Tied to the Whipping Post

     This was “Our” song, till we split up:

Not everyone knows that Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers co-wrote “Layla” with Eric Clapton, and Duane played many of the best-known riffs on “Layla.”  The band did some sets with the Grateful Dead as well.  One hell of a musician, who met the back of a truck in Macon, GA at a young age.


C. Keen Zero, Artist

I’ve been impressed with the skill and imagination of C. Keen Zero, an artist of some renown from Athens, GA. He has a studio in a little Alabama town, where he’s doggedly turning an ancient schoolhouse into an art school.  If you ever saw the retaining wall filled with televisions in Athens, he is the guy who created it.  Whether it’s in clay or metal, his work is thoughtful and different.
