Sunday night rock 'n' roll

The Allman Brothers Band is a band from Macon, Georgia, labeled by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as "the principal architects of Southern rock." Formed in 1969, two years later they were described by Rolling Stone's George Kimball as "the best damn rock and roll band this country has produced in the past five years." They have been feted for their live performances. The band has been awarded eleven Gold and five Platinum albums between 1971 and 2005. Rolling Stone ranked them 52nd on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004. The band continues to record and tour to the present day.

Not only are they in the Rolling Stone top 100 bands of all time but Duane Allman sits second only to Jimi Hendrix as the greatest ever guitarist. He was killed in a motorcycle accident when he was only 24.

At Filmore East
is considered one of the great live albums of all time.
