Red Dog, an original roadie with the band, hit the road with them for 32 years.
|Joe Dan Petty|
Joe Dan, an original roadie with the ABB, was Dickey's guitar tech until his death in a private plane crash in Macon, January, 2000.
Twiggs, the ABB's original road manager, also deftly handled their sound systems.
Tuffy teamed up with Twiggs and Mike to handle the ABB's sound systems in the early years.
Kim was a stagehand and equipment handler. We don't have much info on Kim
-- help us out if you do.
|Hall of Fame|
To date there have been performers, producers, managers, etc inducted into the HOF, but no roadies. What better way to correct this oversight than by inducting the most famous roadies of all time, Red Dog and Joe Dan?

Mike Callahan, another founding road crew member, worked with Twiggs, and
Tuffy to handle the sound systems.
One of the cooler things we've been able to do here at Hittin' the Web was to
hook Mike Callahan and Willie Perkins up via email after more than 20 years of
being out of touch!
