Allman Brothers Band
Ramblin' man (1973)
The Allman Brothers Band, formed in 1969 in Macon, Georgia blended strains of Southern Rock music - Blues, R&B, Country, Jazz, and Gospel - into a flexible, jam-oriented style of Rock and Roll that reflected the emergence of the “New South” and set the style for Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, and countless other Southern rockers. Oddly - or eerily, some would say - the band’s unusual string of untimely deaths has been repeated in other Southern-rock bands.
