It really was the ABB and all the rest. I am proud of the political statements of Duane, Dickey, Butch, and the rest of the band supporting Carter and later Obama. We need much more in the current climate of hurricane nuking idiot prez.

Very distasteful to see many artists who made their nut off the counterculture turning into MAGA alt right freaks.

Those interested in uplifting positive southern culture without confederate/right wing baggae may be interested in the eMag every Tuesday from The Bitter Southerner.

The Allman Brothers were the first integrated band from the deep south,and I will never forget when they put Jaimoe in a separate jail back in '71. The Allmans have always been on the right side of history,now Lynard Skrnard is the Fox News houseband. Who'd a thunk?

Nice article, I enjoyed that. Very pertinent at the end, he said in so many words, "Gregg was relevant right up to when he died." Very true...........he was giving monster performances right up to the end.

Funny though, this guy seems fairly knowledgeable on ABB..........yet he thinks that Derek Trucks was Butch Trucks' son.

Gregg has said many times that he was not for all the confederate flag wagging stuff but that it was pushed by promoters.

From back in the day when bands did not have creative control of every piece of branding I might add.
And certainly given the amount of rock n roll lifestyle .... No way was the ABB controlling anything but the straws on the mirror back then
