Opinion: “… haunted by the music of my soul”

If you haven’t been reading the web magazine “Bitter Southerner,” you should be. It reflects a degree of knowing thoughtfulness about the American South and the world around us that is much too rare and much too necessary these days.

And if you haven’t read editor Chuck Reece’s latest piece, “Gregg Allman’s Last Ride,” about the making of Allman’s last studio album, then you can look forward to a fine introduction to the quality of work that “Bitter Southerner” has been producing for several years now.

Finally, if you want a taste of what Gregg’s last labor of love has produced, I don’t think you can’t top the melancholy grand adieu that is “My Only True Friend”:

my stepmother recently purchased a nine month old Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible by working part time from a home computer.

"Bitter Southerner"?

I've read it. My daughter's most recent boyfriend, recently dismissed, writes for "Bitter Southerner".

That was Allman's LAST labor of love?

Eerily foretelling.

Whenever I see Gregg's name mentioned, I think of my sister, her daughter, and Hillbilly Deluxe. Not that Hillbilly had anything to do with either...just a common appreciation for Gregg Allman.

My niece's name?

Chuck is a good egg & Bittersoutherner is awesome. 

They're doing good work over there. AJC should throw them a bone from time to time (like you just did i guess....). 

They got some nice press from NYT this past week too.
