Join Spartanburg’s own Michael Buffalo Smith on Thursday, January 30th at Hub City Bookshop to promote his latest book, The Road Goes on Forever: 50 Years of the Allman Brothers Band Music. Marshall Tucker Band drummer, Paul T. Riddle, will also join us for music and conversation, as he has appeared as a member of the Allman Brothers band alongside the late great Butch Trucks while filling in for his friend Jaimoe.
Michael Buffalo Smith began his journey as a rock journalist while in high school, but came to be known as “The Ambassador of Southern Rock” following the creation of his GRITZ magazine in 1998.
