Peter Marshall

Listen to "Peter Marshall Wait For Your Laugh" on Spreaker. "Wait For Your Laugh" with Dick Van Dyke, Carol Reiner, Tim Conway, Peter Marshall, and of course Rose Marie (who was a regular on Hollywood Squares with host & friend Peter Marshall), just had its world premiere on opening night of the film Mill Valley Film Festival, before heading to New York and Los Angeles in Nov (listed below). These screenings will qualify the film for Academy Award consideration under "Best Documentary." Iconic and legendary producer, writer and actor, Carl Reiner, couldnt contain his enthusiasm saying at private cast and crew screening, "This is no bulls**t ... This is the finest documentary about anybody I have ever ... ever seen. And why is the best documentary, because it about someone who deserved to have the best documentary made. I'm immediately saying 'Where do we vote?!' Because this has to win every award it ever goes after. I salute you Rosie!" Too much praise cannot be lavished on the efforts of director Jason Wise and his team. Among the many surprises contained in this cinematic gem are never-before-seen home movies taken behind the scenes by Miss Marie or her husband, Bobby Guy, with the cast members of The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Doris Day Show, as well as on the road with the cultural phenomenon called "4 Girls 4." This is the untold story of fame, love, tragedy & 90+ years of American entertainment through the eyes of one woman who witnessed it first hand. "Rose Marie was a child star before Shirley Temple was even born," remarks friend and industry pioneer, Peter Marshall, adding "...and she has done it all." From starring in the first all talking short film released in theaters to opening the Flamingo Hotel in Vegas ... and the mob affiliations that went along with it, including referring to criminal mastermind, Al Capone as "Uncle Al." Indeed, while it is true that Miss Rose Marie has done and starred in everything from Vaudeville to Broadway and Las Vegas, as well as Radio, Cabaret, feature film, and television ... both Primetime and Daytime ... "Wait For Your Laugh" is ultimately a true love story. Despite unimaginable obstacles, finding a soul mate and ... "surviving the greatest loss someone can experience," says Dick Van Dyke.

Mick Rock

Listen to "Mick Rock 45th Anniversary Of Transformer" on Spreaker. Genesis is delighted to bring this book to readers once more. This new re-launch of Transformer celebrates the 45th anniversary of the album, and comes with a new booklet containing 50 unseen photos of Lou Reed, as well as a loose leaf handwritten lyric sheet reproduced in facsimile.   Forty-five years ago, Transformer launched Lou Reed from the underground, way up to Mars, with a little help from Starman Bowie. Mick Rock was there to capture Reed's flight on film, beginning with the iconic album cover and continuing through the wild side of the Seventies.   Mick Rock: 'I'm happy our relationship weathered the outrageous antics of the past 40 years, enabling us to come together to produce such a beautiful tome.'    Lou Reed: ‘When I saw the book, I was just overwhelmed by how beautiful it is. It brought back all that energy and all that virility, captured over that period of time. The book is like an energy bomb. And it’s beautiful.’   Charting the transformations of Lou Reed from 1972 to 1980, Transformer presents never-before-seen imagery of Lou Reed by photographer Mick Rock. This book captures Lou in the studio, performing onstage, in his hotel room, and with friends including David Bowie, Nico, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop and Andy Warhol.   Lou and Mick discussed the photographs and their friendship in a completely original, no-holds-barred dialogue. Lou Reed told the truth behind the sartorial gestures, innovative stage set-ups, subversive acts and legendary albums that made him one of the most intriguing artists in modern music.   Their collaboration is showcased in a 11.5" x 15.5" large format volume, traditionally craftsman-bound by hand. Lou and Mick's Transformer image is recreated on the cover, with a variety of foil detailing and gilt page edging. The book is presented in a slipcase and will include an exclusive 7” picture disc of the Lou Reed classics ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ and ‘Coney Island Baby’, as well as a commemorative booklet, new for 2017, containing 50 more rare photos, and a facsimile lyric sheet.   Lou’s originality and creativity has inspired one of the most iconic volumes that Genesis has ever made. Each of the 2,000 numbered copies in the limited edition has been signed by both Mick Rock and stamped by the Lou Reed estate.  

98 Degrees

Listen to "98 Degrees Let It Snow" on Spreaker. The quartet will release their first full-length album in 4 years, Let It Snow, via UMe. Recorded this past July in Los Angeles, the album features the group's signature R&B-tinged, four-part harmonies. Let It Snow is their second Christmas title, their critically-acclaimed This Christmas was a million-selling, multi-platinum album in 1999. "As a group, our favorite record, hands down, is [This Christmas]," says Drew. "We're proud of the music, the harmonies, the production. It's a Christmas record that every year people can put on and enjoy." Explains Timmons: "We have primarily a female audience, but we'll have guys come up to us and say, 'You know what? I love the Christmas album; my mom bought it for me.' It's bro code that the Christmas album's allowed," Timmons jokingly added. Plus, "it's a special year for us - it's the 20th anniversary of our first release on Motown Records," says Nick. "So, it just seemed like the perfect moment to revisit that and do a Volume Two." The guys recruited Grammy-nominated music, TV and film producer Adam Anders to oversee the project. Perhaps best known for his work as executive music producer for Glee, Anders has written and recorded with some of the biggest names in contemporary pop music, from Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez to Backstreet Boys and the Jonas Brothers. Along with beloved standards like "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", and "Please Come Home For Christmas," the 12-song collection includes their take on "What Christmas Means To Me," written by Allen Story, Anna Gordy Gaye, George Gordy and is the standard that was popularized by Wonder. "[Recording 'True To Your Heart'] with Stevie very early in our career was a signature moment in terms of establishing us as a group," says Nick. In addition to "Superstition" being a 98° concert staple, "I've had the chance to do a bunch of Stevie stuff over the years: performing "For Once In My Life" with Babyface on a variety show back in the day, as well as "That's What Christmas Means to Me" on a finale of The Sing-Off. It was a no-brainer to include that on this Christmas record." Drew, meanwhile, "was kind of adamant" about including "Little Saint Nick," the cheery 1963 Beach Boys bop. "You don't hear a ton of people covering that one. It's an up-tempo song, it's fun, and it allows us to show off our harmonies." As for Timmons, he was the most thrilled about having 98° put their own spin on the classic carols "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "The First Noel" and "What Child is This?" "Those are my favorite selections with regard to our group, our voices," he says. "We nailed the arrangements on those songs! To hear Nick's voice on "What Child is This". Whoa! I'm a big fan of his." While Timmons describes himself as "that cheesy guy who gets into the holiday spirit no matter what," Jeffre chose Joni Mitchell's melancholic ode to winter, "River." "Not everyone has family or friends to spend the holidays with," says Jeffre. "This song is for those people. I hope they find some comfort in it." Over the past 15 years, all four members have enjoyed other careers outside of music. Nick appeared on TV shows both as an actor (The WB's Charmed and One Tree Hill) and a host (VH-1's Big Morning Buzz Live). Drew was crowned season two winner of Dancing With the Stars, been on Broadway, and both brothers opened Lachey's Bar (A&E). Timmons joined members of Backstreet Boys and 'NSYNC for VH-1's Mission Man Band and Nick Carter's Sci-Fi feature, Dead Seven. Jeffre is involved in various media and cause related projects stemming from his foray into politics as a mayoral candidate of Cincinnati. Still, they always harbored a not-so-secret hope to one day record together again as 98°. And, this Christmas, the four friends got their wish. "I love the singing, I love the performing, but the best part of making this record is that I get to hang out with the guys and share some laughs," says Jeffre. "We're all at the point in our lives where we have so much else going on - other projects, families. We may go for an extended period of time without even talking to each other, but when we get back together, we pick right back up where we left off. The band will also be embarking on a 31 city tour kicking off on November 10 and running through December 23. Might Let It Snow lead to future 98° albums? Time will tell, but Timmons certainly hopes so. "The best has yet to come out of this group," he says. "After all these years, ultimately, it's all about the way we sound when we sing together. As you get older, that means everything: to be able to strip away all of that other stuff and get back to why we're doing this in the first place."

Alpert is touring through the end of the year, including twelve shows in eleven nights at Manhattan's legendary Café Carlyle.

Each chapter is illustrated in ghastly detail…throwing the reader into tales of mischief, absurdity, and disbelief starring some of the most heartless monsters in American folklore. These are the stories kids love—spooky, fantastical, gripping, gory, and surprisingly cheeky.

The roperite of the Mojave Desert, whose beak doubles as a noose. If they’re lucky, its prey are strangled immediately. If not, the roperite will drag them halfway across the desert. Perhaps scariest of all is the snow wasset, which lurks beneath the Canadian snow, waiting to burst through the surface to snatch at its unsuspecting prey. The Slide-Rock Bolter at 25,000  pounds in the largest terror The tiniest is the Hoop Snake at four pounds Readers—the young and the young at heart—will surely never look at the woods the same way again.  Fans of R.L.

Jeff Plate From Trans Siberian Orchestra

Listen to "Jeff Plate From Trans Siberian Orchestra" on Spreaker. Paul O'Neill was born and raised in New York City. His family consisted of 10 children, his mother, and his father who had a doctorate in history. He grew up in a home surrounded by books of classical literature, history and philosophy, all of which he read voraciously. His youth was spent enveloped by theater, classical music, R&B as well as witnessing some of the most pivotal years of New York City's morphing rock scene. Influences that helped form a worldview reflected to this day. In his 20's O'Neill landed a position at Leber-Krebs Inc., the management company that launched the careers of Aerosmith, AC/DC, Def Leppard, The New York Dolls, Scorpions and more. A few years later, he was promoting some of the largest concert events and festivals in Japan, for such artists as Madonna, Bon Jovi, and Sting among others. After segueing from the live business into a successful studio career, O'Neill sowed the seeds for what would launch his 20 year journey with Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO). Recording with artists such as Aerosmith, Savatage, and Badlands opened his eyes to the possibility of a group that flew in the face of all music industry logic. In 1996, O'Neill launched Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) with a vision for a band that was theatrical, conceptual, and, like the world itself, intended to be ever-changing. In short, everything not expected of rock music at that point in time. "I think you can say we knew the odds were against us," O'Neill recalls. "The industry at that time liked bands they could fit into nice, neat, little niches and follow preordained paths to success or failure. We knew that we wanted to break all those rules, we just didn't know if it would work. Lucky for us there were people at our label who had a blind faith in artists. They were willing to take a chance and support us while we experimented (sometimes successfully, sometimes not) and discovered what we could create -- without the usual pressure of keeping to a schedule. I can't imagine that being the case in today's music business." Unthinkable in the beginning, TSO has become one of the most unlikely success stories in rock 'n' roll history. Defying the odds with each tour and album, TSO continues to search for new and original ideas to bring to reality no matter how difficult the challenge. Today, many people assume TSO was a success out of the box, but it wasn't until they turned in Beethoven's Last Night (1999), and began to tour, that the band's fortune changed. To date, TSO has generated five platinum-or-better albums -- and turned into a touring juggernaut, becoming one of Billboard's Top 25 acts during the first decade of the 21st century. TSO's album saga continued last year with Letters From The Labyrinth, which O'Neill christened as TSO's "first hybrid album," and boasts a conceptually provocative song cycle that pushes the proverbial envelope once again. The album's overall concept is based on TSO's Night Castle (2009) and a dialogue between the wisdom of the past and the hopes for the future, via a correspondence between a child and an old friend of the child's grandfather. Letters from the Labyrinth became TSO's third Top 10 album debut in a row, and spent an impressive six weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Rock Chart. 2015's tour hit 60 cities across North America and played to more than 850,000 people. The run grossed more than $41 million in just 45 days which resulted in it being ranked No. 15 on the "Top 200 North American Tours" chart and No. 30 on the "Top 100 Worldwide Tours" chart by concert industry trade Pollstar magazine. TSO's successes extend overseas, as well. In Germany, TSO has played to more than 1,000,000 people on New Year's Eve at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, and in July 2015 performed to a crowd of over 80,000 fans at the Wacken Open Air Festival with a ground-breaking set across the festival's massive two main stages. Last year, O'Neill shed some more light onto the TSO phenomenon in features on CBS Sunday Morning and in a cover story for the Wall Street Journal. In August, O'Neill announced that in its Platinum anniversary year, for its Winter Tour 2016, the group is bringing back its treasured tale, "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve." The tour will come to 61 cities across North America beginning on November 17th and concludes, after 45 days and 105 shows, with special New Year's Eve performances in Seattle and Cleveland. There's more on tap in TSO's near future. Working at its studio in Florida, TSO has in various stages of completion two more rock operas -- "Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper" about the 1917 Russian Revolution -- while a live concert adaptation of "Night Castle" is also on the future docket. O'Neill plans to bring the TSO experience to Broadway at some point. "My biggest problem is simply time," O'Neill says with a laugh. "I need to get one of those magical stopwatches where time freezes and I can play catchup. Until that happens, we'll just keep working on things, trying finding new stories and new ways to tell them."

Bob Hoskyns

Listen to "Barney Hoskyns Joni Mitchell Anthology" on Spreaker. Nine Grammys. More than ten million albums sold. Named one of the greatest singers and songwriters of all time by Rolling Stone. Joni: The Anthology is an essential collection of writings on Joni Mitchell that charts every major moment of the famed troubadour's extraordinary career, as it happened. From album reviews, incisive commentary, and candid conversations, Joni: The Anthology includes, among other things, a review of Mitchell's first-ever show at LA's Troubadour in June of 1968, a 1978 interview by musician Ben Sidran on jazz great Charles Mingus, a personal reminiscence by Ellen Sander, a confidant of the Los Angeles singer-songwriter community, and a long "director's cut" version of editor Barney Hoskyns' 1994 MOJO interview. A time capsule of an icon, the anthology spans the entirety of Joni's career between 1967-2007, as well as thoughtful commentary on her early years. In collecting materials long unavailable, rare, or otherwise difficult to find, Joni: The Anthology illuminates the evolution of modern rock journalism while providing an invaluable and accessible guide to appreciating the highs―and the lows―of a twentieth century legend. “Once I crossed the border, I began to write and my voice changed. I no longer was imitative of the folk style. My voice was then my real voice and with a slight folk influence, but from the first album it was no longer folk music. It was just a girl with a guitar that made it look that way.”―Joni Mitchell, 1994

Diane Snake Lake

Dianne 'Snake' Lake reveals the true account of her years with the Manson family, detailing for the first time how she came to join the Family at age 14 and revealing new information about Charles Manson and life as one of his "girls." ### A poignant and compelling memoir of survival, MEMBER OF THE FAMILY (Morrow, on sale 10/24/2017, on sale 9780062695574, $27.99) is Dianne Lake's disturbing and powerful testament of her time with one of the 20th Century's most notorious criminal figures: Charles Manson. At age fourteen Dianne Lake-with little more than an old note in her pocket from her hippie parents granting her permission to leave them-became one of "Charlie's girls," a devoted acolyte of cult leader Charles Manson. Over the course of two years, the impressionable teenager endured manipulation, psychological control, and physical and sexual abuse as the harsh realities of Charles Manson's true nature revealed themselves. From Spahn Ranch and the group orgies and acid trips, to the Beatles' White Album and Manson's dangerous messiah-complex, Dianne tells the riveting story of the Family's descent into madness as she lived it. In MEMBER OF THE FAMILY, Dianne Lake details how she was lured by one of the notorious cults of the 20th century after her parents, who were themselves members of the famous "Hog Farm" commune, were unwittingly complicit in bringing her to Manson's attention then acquiescing to her choice of joining Charlie's "Family." After a tumultuous upbringing with multiple, chaotic moves, Dianne found herself living out of an old bread truck that her father had transformed so that the Lake family could "drop out" and live life free from societal responsibilities. During this time the Lake family, Dianne's mother and father and two younger siblings, moved around Southern California and Dianne found herself longing for a place she belonged. So, when she walked into a party where two young women, Lynette Fromme and Patty Krenwinkel, singled her out and brought her to the lap of Charles Manson, Dianne finally felt like she had found her true Family.

Michael Dorn

Listen to "Michael Dorn From Star Trek Next Generation" on Spreaker. Michael Dorn (born December 9, 1952) is an American actor and voice artist who is known for his role as the Klingon Worf in the Star Trek franchise. From his first appearance in the series premiere episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Encounter at Farpoint", to his last in Star Trek: Nemesis, Dorn has appeared more times as a regular cast member than any other Star Trek actor in the franchise's history, spanning five films and 272 television episodes. He also appeared as Worf's ancestor, Colonel Worf, in the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Following the end of his Star Trek career, Dorn had supporting roles in a number of independent feature films, including Shadow Hours (2000), Lessons for an Assassin (2001), and the Santa Clause trilogy, in which he appeared in a cameo role as "The Sandman". Dorn was born in Luling, Texas, the son of Allie Lee (née Nauls) and Fentress Dorn, Jr. He grew up in Pasadena, California. He studied radio and television production at Pasadena City College. From there he pursued a career in music as a performer with several different rock music bands, traveling to San Francisco and then back to Los Angeles. Dorn first appeared in Rocky (1976) as Apollo Creed's bodyguard, though he was not credited.He first appeared as a guest on the television show W.E.B. in 1978. The producer was impressed with his work, so he introduced Dorn to an agent who then introduced him to acting teacher Charles Conrad to study acting for six months.

Benjamin Bratt

Listen to "Benjamin Bratt From Coco" on Spreaker. 'Coco' is about a 12-year-old boy with big dreams," says director Lee Unkrich. "It's about a hardworking family with great traditions and a lot of love. But what's so cool about 'Coco' is that the boy could be my son. That family could live next door. The sweet, bossy grandmother who insists on one more bite might be your grandma. There's something familiar to us all in this story. That's what makes it so special." The universal theme of family resonated with filmmakers. "We are all part of a family," says co-director and screenwriter Adrian Molina. "Those relationships are beautiful and complicated. But our family shapes who we are, which made us wonder-if you had an opportunity to meet your ancestors, what would you recognize in them that you see in yourself?" Adds Unkrich, "We recognized a common need to be remembered-to feel that we'll matter long after our time here. Likewise, there's a strong desire to keep alive the memories of our loved ones. By sharing their stories and creating our own, we build this connection across generations that is bigger than our day-to-day lives." Pixar Animation Studios' 19th feature film introduces Miguel, an aspiring singer and self-taught guitarist who dreams of following in the footsteps of his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous musician in the history of Mexico. But Miguel's family forbids music. Many years ago, his great-great-grandmother and great-great-grandfather came to an impasse: She wanted to raise their family together in Santa Cecilia, but he couldn't let go of his dream, leaving his family behind in his quest to be a musician. Passed down from generation to generation, great-great-grandmother Mamá Imelda's consequent ban on music is strictly enforced-much to Miguel's dismay. "When Miguel unearths a secret from his family's past-a connection to Ernesto de la Cruz, he rushes to share the news with his family, thinking it will clear the way for him to be a musician," says screenwriter Matthew Aldrich. "To his surprise, it only makes matters worse."

Jeanette J Johnson

Listen to "Jenette j Johnson Everyday Fashion And Faith" on Spreaker. Her post opened up a pertinent discussion that deeply reverberated with readers looking to find similar balance. Through personal experiences, current events, and pop-culture references, J’S EVERYDAY FASHION AND FAITH: Personal Style with Purpose (Waterfall Press; 10/3/17) makes the connection between deep-seeded spirituality, strong values, and the daily decisions we make about our personal style. From her upbringing in rural middle America, to her first job out of college in a big city, and finally to Florida where her blog was born, J’s journey to finding a balance between her love for fashion and her faith was not an easy one. After experiencing many setbacks in her personal and professional life by not being appropriately dressed in the interest of being frugal, J was faced with the harsh reality that her style choices conflicted with her inherent values. In her memoir, J embraces this understanding while providing a unique perspective with refreshing outlooks on guilt, creativity, self-esteem, and global responsibility that everyone has encountered. Balance: As women we often put the needs of others ahead of our own. The varying duties of being a woman can feel overwhelming. But treating yourself to something you have pined over or setting aside time for yourself are important forms of self-care. Creativity: Our passions – whether that means for you clothes, beauty, food, art, or anything else – is an important part of our souls and are something to be celebrated. Don’t be afraid to embrace who you are. Self-esteem: When your clothes don’t fit, it’s easy to believe that your body is the issue and not the clothes. But hidden behind those clothes are issues surrounding inner beauty that is far more powerful and important. Global Responsibility: While we cannot change the world in a day, we at least have a responsibility to start questioning where our clothes come from, what conditions those people are working under, and to know how much waste clothes produce. Many women are faced with these universal concerns and J’s objective is to open the discussion for women from all walks of life and faiths. Part memoir, part call-to-action, J'S EVERYDAY FASHION AND FAITH explores topics that we as women often don't talk about openly. It shows that caring about our appearance doesn't have to be a sign of vanity, that we can interweave our values, morals, and faith with our own sense of style and creativity, and that we have a social responsibility as consumers.

Playing hooky from Larry, HBO, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, the most-ruckus-bringingest-human ever is here to fix your life with a philosophical helpfulness you'd have sworn you never needed. Aristotle. Gandhi. Lao Tzu. Dr. Ruth. Amateurs. For centuries bespeckled dorks have pored over the scrolls of the ancients, read tea leaves, and looked to the stars for philosophy, wisdom, and advice. While some people have probably offered good advice, and others offer bad advice, Leon is here to offer his brand of good-bad advice. These are the musings of a master genius spitting out the secrets of the universe-to help you become just like him. Be forewarned: in opening this tome and Leon's mind, you need to be prepared for straight talk. The kind of unfiltered blunt straight talk that pounds on your door, invites itself in, makes itself at home, helps itself to your food, security pass code, your expensive organic beet juice, and finally makes itself comfortable on that twin bed in your guest room. All the while you think you're helping it-but really it's helping you help yourself! Because that's how this book doozit. Leon Black, he ain't wrong...he just ain't right. THE BOOK OF LEON is the encyclopedic wisdom of Leon Black, the unofficial sidekick to Larry David and a foolish force to be reckoned with. He has advice on skin care, divorce (how to get there without being a dirty cheater), wife insurance, getting money for your startup, when to wash your hands, how to fix government debt (print more money!), how to be a high-functioning alcoholic, and which Uber to order depending on how drunk you are.

The video depicts the ultimate rebel girl, who embodies Sid Vicious in spirit and encounters the band in a gritty nightclub. She turns everything upside down wherever she goes, refusing to back down to anyone. On the concept of the video, vocalist Spider One says, “Visually, I wanted the video to feel like we stepped back in time, got transported back to the Rathskeller in Boston or CBGBs. Basically, a dirty, smelly claustrophobic mess.” Spider further discusses the meaning of "Sid Vicious in a Dress": “I suppose at its simplest it’s a twisted love song, but really it’s about loving what hurts you, what is bad for you. Staying when you should run. Over the years, Sid Vicious has become the poster child for chaos and self-destruction. I just took that and put it in the form of a beautiful girl. The title of the song kind of says it all.”  Spider stresses the spirit of the music video, stating, “It was very important to not to let this video become a typical rock and roll bad girl cliche video. This is not a lap dance video. This is violence!”   The track is one you’ll want to put on repeat, assuredly becoming an anthem for twisted love, mayhem, and rock and roll anarchy. It will leave everyone who hears it singing along to its unapologetic refrain, “You're a mess!

OC:...somewhere out there. :31 "The image on the cover is taken in his backyard actually looking out towards the river and there’s a wooden walkway that heads out towards his dock as well as some trees with some Spanish moss hanging and that’s the image that you’ll see and that Gregg saw every single day when he would sit out on his back patio, or sit out by the pool. And very often he would take walks towards the dock. And the reason that we chose that image is it just looks out towards the beyond where Gregg was and that’s where Gregg is, somewhere out there.” But, with Castiglia still having Gregg's blood, his family went ahead with a portrait. Michael Lehman, Gregg Allman's manager, on the blood art portrait of Gregg included with the deluxe edition of Gregg's last album, Southern Blood. make the painting. :30 “After his passing Vincent was commissioned to paint a portrait of Gregg, and the kids, as well as myself, looked at many different images to determine what would be best ’cause Gregg never sat for the portrait. And they settled on a Neil Preston photo from the early ’70s and Vincent painted that. Now the interesting thing is there actually wasn’t enough blood in the two vials that Gregg had given him to paint the portrait, so some of the kids contributed their own blood to make this painting.” That portrait is available with the deluxe editions of Southern Blood, and the original painting will tour the country as part of any celebrations related to the album, as well as an Allman exhibition that's in the works.
