Biography:
The Allman Brothers Band blended strains of Southern Music-blues, R&B, country
and Gospel, into aflexible, "New South" and set the style for Lynyrd Skynyrd , the
Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels Band, and countless other Southern
Rockers Oddly-or eerily, some would say-the bands unusual string of untimely
deaths has been repeated in other Southern Rock bands. Through personal
tragedy and turmoil, the Allman Brothers Band has endured , and while it lacks
the commercial clout of its early '70's heyday, remains well respected and well
received by legions of fans.
