My town (Huntington) has an art-film house which shows independent movies, foreign films and artistic fare. The place is a Mecca of culture in the suburban desert.
The Allman Brothers Band. The Allman Brothers were huge in the Seventies, with several big hits like "Ramblin' Man," "Whipping Post" and "Midnight Rider." They were the King of a genre known as "Southern rock" which ruled among my friends. (Other Southern rock titans were Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Charlie Daniels Band.)
The Allman Brothers band had two terrific musicians -- founder Duane Allman and guitarist Dickey Betts. In my opinion, Betts was the greatest guitarist of all time, a view that is shared by many. His virtuoso playing was magical.
Duane's brother Gregg married Cher before she realized he was a full-time drug-addict. When she learned this and gave him an ultimatum, he kept drugging and she dumped him.
Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident in 1971, at age 24. The group's bass-player, Berry Oakley, died the following year, also from a motorcycle accident.
Their music still stands up and I listen to it regularly. Their flights of musical fancy provide therapeutic benefit to me.
Have you heard of this group?
