Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.) played a special show after the Allman Brothers Band appearance at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. Both Wilco's Nels Cline and ABB's Warren Haynes appeared at the show in Lucille's, an intimate club inside of the larger B.B. King's and both played on Duane Allman's Goldtop Les Paul which was on loan from the Big House museum in Macon, Georgia.


The legendary axe was purchased by Allman in 1969 and was used primarily during the Allman's first two records, the Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs sessions, as well as countless hours of amazing live music. The Big House is an Allman Brothers Museum and sometimes allows certain pieces to be used. Cline has actually used "The Layla Guitar" a few times with his main band, Wilco.


Nels Cline came out first and jammed on "Space Is The Place" with AJ Ghent playing along on eight-string lap steel guitar and Jez Graham on keys. Haynes appeared later in the set also wielding the famous guitar.
