Biography

Macon, Georgia, United States (1969 – 1976, 1978 – 1982, 1986 – 1986, 1989 – present)

The Allman Brothers Band formed in 1969 in Macon, Georgia, United States and blended different strains of related music— , , , , and more— into a flexible, jam-oriented style. Reflecting the emergence of the “New South” and setting the style for Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, and many other bands, the Allman Brothers Band also oddly— or eerily, some would say— had an unusual string of untimely deaths, a pattern similar to other Southern rockers. Through personal tragedy and turmoil, the group endured for decades. Reaching the peak of their commercial clout in the early , they were highly respected and well received by legions of fans. Lead guitarist and band leader Duane Allman has been recognized as one of the greatest and guitarists in history, according to numerous polls.

Brothers Gregg Allman and Duane Allman were living in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1960, and played in various bands until 1964, when they formed the Escorts, which became the Allman Joys in 1965. After their version of Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful” failed as a single, the two brothers and three other band members went to L.A., where they signed with Liberty Records as the Hourglass. They recorded two albums of outside material (Hourglass, 1967, and Power of Love, 1968) before heading to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, to record at Fame Studios. Liberty rejected the resulting tapes, and Duane and Gregg returned to Florida.

    The new expanded Fillmore 1971 box set is a monumental masterpiece. Been a fan for almost 30 years and it still blew me away when I first listened to it a couple of weeks ago. Wow!
