91 N Rembert St Memphis


Last year I made it a point to be in Memphis on the anniversary of Jeff's death, a fan pilgrimage of sorts. This year I was driving through and by chance was there at the same time. These are some pictures I took of his house on Rembert St. No one lives there so I went around back and took a look through the windows. I wonder what the neighbors think haha!

the big house, macon

This summer I went to The Big House in Macon, Georgia. Pretty much heaven for any Allman Bros fan. It was absolutely lovely. We were the only people there, just a few of the workers/volunteers getting ready for Gregg's book signing the next day. I took my time looking and reading everything and I really loved all the handwritten lyrics. My favorite room was "casbah lounge" upstairs with big windows with a six head shower, cushions, hookahs, record player, etc. I could just imagine spending a rainy day in their, listening to music and never leaving. After that we went to H&H diner which was the bands favorite place and had some collard greens and okra... not many vegan options! hah but cool atmosphere! I definitely could go back to the chitlin circuit. Good vibes around there.

photography was a massive intervention into our knowledge, our consciousness

You get so used to photos, you think, I know that guy, but it's not true... You know the world of the photos, but not the world they photographed. I can't remember it. The photos create a world, but I don't know what's happening outside the frame.

you have to be really practical about what you want to do

"I’m pro-education. I think it is a great privilege to stop for a period of your life and just walk into the halls of a place and allow yourself to be a sharer and collaborator. I mean it’s a great opportunity, but I don’t think we should fool ourselves that just because we’ve been given an education, it means we’re educated. Just because they have a degree doesn’t mean they’re pedigreed!"

"My whole thing is if you’re not in your truth, doing what you want to do, you’re going to be really fucking let down, even if you have PhD after your name, or 90210 at the end of your address, or whateves!"

time coats the ordinary with gold

"Was she still as pretty as I remembered? Is anyone? How memories lie to us. How time coats the ordinary with gold. How it breaks the heart to go back and attempt to relive them. How crushed we are when we discover that the gold was merely gold plating thinly coated over lead, chalk, and peeling paint."

no point whining about it

Câline: Just imagine you're walking along and you get hit by a bicycle. You're injured. All you can do is wait for your injuries to heal. No point whining about it.

Nicolas: Aren't you a little angry at the cyclist?

Câline: What for? It won't make your injuries heal quicker. It wasn't the cyclist's fault. He didn't do it on purpose.

Nicolas: True. But some might blame him for not being careful enough.

Câline: But it takes experience to be careful. You can't blame someone from lacking experience.

Nicolas: That's exactly right. That's very well said.

it didn’t make any difference to him

"When Jeff loved people, he loved them unconditionally. Whether others thought that someone was a big freak or the best person in the world, it didn’t make any difference to him. He loved people for what they were, unconditionally."

Leah Reid, Product Manager, Columbia Records
