Wilco guitarist Nels Cline was the Colonel’s first guest at the intimate show. Cline played Duane Allman’s Goldtop Les Paul which was on loan from the Big House museum in Macon, Georgia. Nels and Ghent took turns layering licks in Space Is The Place. Later in the evening Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes stopped by and jammed with the band. Haynes also sported Duane’s famous axe.
