i had no idea how cool the allman's were until i saw them live at laguna seca in the 90's. they opened with hot 'lanta and i'd have to say it's my favorite ever since. i also love ain't wastin time, great tune. i dig the heavier instrumentals best, i like nobody knows alot. cool riffs.
i got to hang out with and interview allen woody a few years before he died. big guy, awesome bassist. he smoked me out in his hotel room as we talked about his instruments. went backstage to their show that night and also met warren haynes, jaimoe and was standing by dickey betts for awhile, but didnt recognize him because he was clean shaven. only after he was on stage did i realize i'd missed the chance to introduce myself as a fan of his playing. the allman's are so macho, i don't think most people realize that you can headbang to alot of their tunes.
