There was a sound. A sound he found to be unlike any other. And that includes Tina Yothers crying at the funeral held for the death of the TV movie. She used to be a shoo-in for the reality TV shows and even though everyone knows her star faded oh so long ago, she would turn up on any celebrity game show that needed a contestant but really what sent her career into the nosedive to nowhere was being replaced as the cute-comeback kid on Family Ties but made to stay in the cast, and probably to her surprise – she was there in the final episode. They all took a bow. It was emotional. A 90-minute finale – three episodes to say goodbye to one of America’s favourite families and then the people that played them appeared on stage to wave to a studio audience. There were tears from all of them. But there was not much behind the eyes of Tina Yothers. The others were amped, they stamped their feet, they waved their hands, they celebrated and commiserated and then Steven and Elyse Keaton morphed back into one person and continued their life as Gregg Allman. Mourning the death of brother Duane. Wailing in a way that sounded not unlike one of his best slide guitar solos. Ah, now that’s the sound. The sound he found. The sound he had thought was unlike any other…wah, wah-wah, wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wah!
