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?
Actually, I do remember them, but just barely.
This is one of their fringe leather jumpsuits, for what it's worth.
Stage duds from Cindy Wilson and Fred Schneider of the B-52s.
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.
Seeing one of Bo Diddly's box guitars was incredibly cool.
I feel no shame in admitting I have no idea who the hell Jermaine Dupri is.
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.
I think Alan Jackson was the one who sang, "Where Were You (When The World Stopped Caring About My Career)."
"Freddie's Dead," and now so is Curtis Mayfield.
It's probably best Ronnie couldn't see this outfit.
What an awesome outfit. I bet Otis looked great in it at the Monterrey Pop Festival.
Ray Charles had the class that Ronnie Milsap lacked, apparently.
Unfortunately, Little Richard couldn't claim blindness as an excuse for these outfits.
These Lynyrd Skynyrd clothes are before the crash, I'm guessing
What does a middle-age, mullet-wearing country boy from Georgia wear?
Unfortunately, and not unexpectedly, this.
Former Stray Cats star Brian Setzer had an amazing array of beautiful guitars displayed. The collection was worth seeing for these alone:
