Last Wednesday as I was driving to work, I really really wanted to hear some Allmans, specifically Dreams. I had it on my iPod at one point but that iPod died and my digital music is kind of all over the place, so I downloaded A Decade of Hits. Then Saturday morning I'm scrolling through facebook when I see the news, and it hit really hard. I really wasn't even done mourning Chris Cornell.

This is what happens when you get old - everyone whose music means something to you dies. RIP Gregg, thank you for providing part of the soundtrack to my life.

I'm wondering what a death like this means financially for a band like the Allman Bros. How many more songs & albums have they sold in the past 24 hours than is the norm for a very successful band from a few decades ago. I see that A Decade of Hits is now No. 5 and Live at Fillmore East No. 8 on iTunes album chart.
