Regarding Hippie Crash Pad. Excerpt from the music tour pamphlet:
A one-time tour manager for Little Richard and a trusted employee of Phil Walden’s Artist & Promotions company, Twiggs Lyndon rented a two-room apartment within a house that once stood on this site. It was here where the entire Allman Brothers Band lived when they first moved to Macon in 1969. Lyndon later served as the band’s tour manager.

Before the Allman Brothers made it big, they lived in a one-bedroom apartment called “The Hippie Crash Pad.” (By CCJ Social Newsdesk (Mercer University journalism class project) in Medium, posted Oct. 3, 2016) (Submitted on November 24, 2021, by Duane and Tracy Marsteller of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.)
