Elijah and Gregg Allman

Elijah and Gregg Allman

This is an absolutely lovely photograph. The lighting, the blue in the blonde hair, Elijah's hand on Gregg Allman's back. It's also a very sad photograph considering Elijah and Gregg Allman were rarely together in Elijah's childhood. The photo features Cher so implicitly as the missing connector in their relationship; and you can almost hear a snippet of Cher's rare personal lyrics from "My Song (Too Far Gone)" from the 1979 Take Me Home album: "He'll never get to know his son." Email me if you know who the photographer "Feathers" is.
