In an interview a few days before a Fox Theatre concert last May 1 to celebrate his 70th birthday, Colonel Bruce 汉普顿 told ArtsATL 他的日常口头禅是“ Brato Ganib”,这是他在梦中梦到的表情,意思是“普遍和平”。他还对他能够建立事业表示感谢。“把我的手放在一块木头上。”

汉普顿’s reach went far beyond his own music. He was a legend in Atlanta music circles, friend and mentor to scores of musicians, many of whom had gathered at the Fox to pay tribute to him. The four-hour concert featured performances by such musical royalty as Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeshi, Warren Haynes, Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones, Peter Buck of R.E.M., members of 普遍恐慌, Tinsley Ellis and dozens of others whose lives 汉普顿 had touched.

At the end of the show, 汉普顿 had returned to the stage and collapsed while performing one of his favorite songs, “Turn On Your Love Light,” the first tune he remembered ever performing on stage. He never regained consciousness.

为了纪念周年, ArtsATL has gathered some our stories about 汉普顿 as a tribute to his memory. Hampton told us last year that one of his lessons learned was to go with the flow of life. “我什么都没计划—好,坏或丑陋,我随它去吧,” he said. “我必须说,我一直只是想播放音乐—不工作的音乐,不赚音乐,只播放音乐并发出快乐的声音。我不知道它的好坏,但我一直在做— show up and play.”

在纪念上校时,总编辑斯科特·弗里曼(Scott Freeman)分享了自己与汉普顿(Hampton),牧师杰夫·摩西尔(Jeff Mosier)和廷斯利·埃利斯(Tinsley Ellis)等人的友谊。本文着眼于汉普顿’在亚特兰大的历史,包括汉普顿油脂乐队和水族馆救援单位,他对弗兰克·扎帕的介绍以及他作为几代音乐家的尤达的地位。“在音乐界,我从未遇到像上校那样受到普遍喜爱或信任的人,” Freeman wrote. “我开玩笑的话是,布鲁斯是全球约4%人口的最好的朋友,而另外96%的人还没有机会见过他。”

果酱乐队先驱者的回归水族馆救援单位

2015年,汉普顿改组了他最著名的乐队The 水族馆救援单位,以进行全国巡回演出,以纪念该乐队成立26周年’的成立。在这次采访中,汉普顿任命了他最有趣的音乐家’d曾经见过面,并讨论了他作为导师的角色。“音乐是紧张和释放,” he said. “很多人不明白这一点。弹奏乐器并不能使您成为伟大的音乐家。 。 。 。伟大的人有敏感性—几乎是第六感。也许有10%的音乐家有。要真正做到伟大,就必须考虑别人,必须倾听,并且要期待。大多数不—他们只是播放音乐并聆听自己的声音。”

“Basically Frightened” and the long, strange trip of Colonel Bruce 汉普顿

In 2012, a full-length documentary about 汉普顿’s life — 基本上受惊: The 音乐al Madness of Colonel Bruce 汉普顿 — was released and premiered at the Plaza Theatre during the Atlanta Film Festival. When Freeman arrived at the Plaza for the premiere, there was a line that snaked all the way to the Majestic Diner. 汉普顿 showed up minutes later and got into the line beside him and began to wait with everyone else to get in. “Colonel, 您 don’不必排队,” someone exclaimed to 汉普顿. “It’s 您的 电影!” In this story, 汉普顿 talks about the documentary, his role as Morris in the hit movie 单刀 和他的遗产。“It’s very strange,” he said. “真的,我从来没有觉得自己存在过或过着生活。我觉得自己的灵魂轮换,我过着别人的生活。我本该是个害羞的会计,有两个半车子,两个半孩子和白色的栅栏。出生时发生了一些事情;我是一个实验。 (笑)发生了明确的灵魂旋转,因为舞台上的那个家伙和坐在这里的那个家伙—这个不成立。没有。”

普遍恐慌’吉米·赫林(Jimmy Herring)的悲伤与重返狐狸的灵感

去年12月,Widepread Panic主吉他手Jimmy Herring— who gained his first fame with 汉普顿 and The 水族馆救援单位 — talked to ArtsATL’s 布伦达·斯蒂普(Brenda Stepp)关于乐队’s New Year’s Eve concerts, which would bring them to the Fox Theatre for the first time since 汉普顿’s death. Herring talks about the influence of 汉普顿 on his music and his life. “布鲁斯帮我找到音乐,” Herring said. “他很早就对我很苛刻,因为他想确保我喜欢音乐和 不 只是吉他。所以他坚持要我听没有吉他的音乐,我很喜欢。那一课还在我身边。我很少听有吉他的音乐。如果您只听其他吉他演奏者的灵感,听起来会像英雄一样。因此,对于音乐家来说,聆听所有音乐至关重要,因此我们可以吸收音乐,而不仅仅是乐器。”
