GEORGIA ON MY MIND

About 10 days ago, I mentioned the Jerry Reed portion to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame exhibit I saw while flying through Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Well, I've collected my photos finally. Here they are for your perusal:

Funny, but you'd think that Gregg Allmann of The Allmann Brothers would wear something a little less... I dunno... flamboyant?

Remember the Atlanta Rhythm Section? Do "Champagne Jam" or "Imaginary Lover" ring any bells?

Me neither.

Actually, I do remember them, but just barely.

This is one of their fringe leather jumpsuits, for what it's worth.

GaB52s.jpg

Stage duds from Cindy Wilson and Fred Schneider of the B-52s.

GaCrowes.jpg

A vest worn by Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson. I wonder how the rest of the band feels about their exhibit showcasing his wife, Kate Hudson. I bet she's their Yoko.

Ah yes, "Watching Scotty Grow." On behalf of a less than grateful nation, I thank you for that terrifically bad song, Mr. Mac Davis.

GaDiddly.jpg

Seeing one of Bo Diddly's box guitars was incredibly cool.

GaDupri.jpg

I feel no shame in admitting I have no idea who the hell Jermaine Dupri is.

GaGladys.jpg

There's something anachronistic about being in an airport while looking at the outfits used to sing "Midnight Train To Georgia." But maybe that's just me.

GaJackson.jpg

I think Alan Jackson was the one who sang, "Where Were You (When The World Stopped Caring About My Career)."

GaJames.jpg

Good Gawd.

GaMayfield.jpg

GaMayfielda.jpg

"Freddie's Dead," and now so is Curtis Mayfield.

GaMilsap.jpg

It's probably best Ronnie couldn't see this outfit.

GaOtis.jpg

What an awesome outfit. I bet Otis looked great in it at the Monterrey Pop Festival.

GaRay.jpg

Ray Charles had the class that Ronnie Milsap lacked, apparently.

GaRichard.jpg

Unfortunately, Little Richard couldn't claim blindness as an excuse for these outfits.

GaSkynard.jpg

These Lynyrd Skynyrd clothes are before the crash, I'm guessing

GaTritt.jpg

What does a middle-age, mullet-wearing country boy from Georgia wear?

Unfortunately, and not unexpectedly, this.

GaSetzer2.jpg

Former Stray Cats star Brian Setzer had an amazing array of beautiful guitars displayed. The collection was worth seeing for these alone:
