Allmans Bassist A Class Act

Music Theory may be necessary part of the music curriculum but nothing beats playing, especially when you get the chance to do it with a guy who has done it for millions of people.  That chance came for students at a Miami area high school yesterday (10/19) when Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge spent an off day on the band's tour at Columbus High School in West Miami-Dade.  The day came together because ABB tour manager Kirk West and music teacher John Lynskey, a class of '78 Columbus grad, became friends through Hittin' The Note, a quarterly music magazine that covers the Allmans Lynskey puts out.  How special was it?  Senior Jaun Carlos Fleites called it "A life-changing experience."
