Kevan “Luke” Green has vivid memories of his epic hitchhiking trip, at age 14, from from Tampa, Fla., to visit the spiritual home of the Allman Brothers Band. He came to see the restaurant where they ate, a venue where they played, and especially the graves where two are buried. He especially remembers walking up the hill to get to those graves in Rose Hill Cemetery, a path he followed Sunday with his Florida truck to mark another Allman Brothers homage.
