Scott Sharrard Premieres New Song “Everything A Good Man Needs” featuring Taj Mahal & Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie
- Gregg Allman Band guitarist Scott Sharrard premiered a new song “Everything A Good Man Needs” from his upcoming solo album "Saving Grace".
The song features American blues musician Taj Mahal and American drummer Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie.
Originally, Gregg Allman and Scott Sharrard co-wrote the song for Allman’s final solo album "Southern Blood" in 2017. But Gregg Allman passed away on May 27, 2017.
Scott Sharrard decided to release the song as paying tribute to Gregg Allman on his own solo album. This marks the last song written by Gregg Allman.
“Whenever we would pull into a town or a hotel on the road, Gregg would usually say, ‘This place has everything a good man needs,'” Scott Sharrard told Rolling Stone. “This is definitely a true story. We just wanted to do a fun, funky blues [song] about finding love out on the road. I know that Gregg would be thrilled to have Taj and Bernard playing our song.”
The new album "Saving Grace" is set to be released on September 21, 2018. Scott Sharrard launched a headline tour at Nublu in New York on August 30th. The tour will conclude at Bearsville Theater Woodstock in New York on December 22nd.
