I spent the month of June, 2000 in Japan. Towards the end of my stay, I took the bullet train South to the coast town, Kamakura. I rented a bicycle with fat tires at the train station, and found the legendary Dia Bitsu. The Big Buddha (that's what it means) sits on a pedestal, gigantic bowl of fruit at his feet., and measures about 25 feet tall. You can actually walk inside.
I sat on a stone wall, directly across.
Gregg Allman, Blue Monday
I was lucky to have a scrap of paper and felt pen on me. This was Beacon Theater and I was sitting about 10 rows up on the left, right in front of Gregg. I've heard the Allman Bros. many times, but this 2 minute sketch brings me back to that moment.
