There was a night in 1978 when Gregg Allman asked a teenaged Chuck Reece to sit down at his table. Our editor hasn't forgotten a second of that experience. Today, in our MUSIC Column, Chuck along with Killer Mike, John Paul White and Mark Wenner remember the legend. #music #allmanbrothers

In 2014, Tom Maxwell and his family rented a historic home, just outside Hillsborough, North Carolina, for cheap. Nine months later, they ran away as fast as they could, fleeing a parade of spirits, apparitions and (yes, we'll say it) haints.
