Renegade bluegrass band, Rollin' in the Hay (from rat-cheer in Birminghamala) have a tune called "Jerry and J.B." - which is a tribute to Jerry Garcia and John Bell. In it, the singer talks about growing up in the south and his musical inspirations. The Allman Brothers, "Liz Reed" and "Ramblin Man" are all mentioned.

Should you get a chance to check out Rollin in the Hay, I urge that you do so. If you get a chance and pass it up, I will find out where you live and ... KIDDING!

Seriously, here's the URL for their site:

http://www.rollininthehay.com/

You can find the album with "Jerry and J.B." on it. If you look through the pictures section, you'll find shots of the guys with Gregg Allman (a freind), and performing with Waylon Jennings ... other good stuff, too.

I sure wouldn't know the title, but near the beginning of his stardom, Travis Tritt had a song where he sang something like "I still miss Duane Allman."

1973, warm up acoustic solo act before the headlineer, Frank Zappa....Memorial Hall, Kansas City, Kansas
I remember one line from a song he sang. Sorry don't recall the person's name.

"and the Allman Brothers Band is gonna play for free"

that line got my attention

I saw Zappa back about that time and the opener was Tom Waits.

I remember reading somewhere that Rick Derringer's "Rock and Rolll Hoochie Coo" was written after seeing The ABB in Jacksonville in 69 or so. I can't confirm it, but the words do seem to fit.
Anybody know for sure?

This will be popular but I remember clear as a bell a song called "Rings"

There was line that went, "Ring Ring the doorbell rings baby come on in, got James Taylor on the Stereo"

A guy that called himself LOBO covered the song and changed it to, "Ring Ring the doorbell rings baby come on in, got Allman Brothers on the Stereo".

I reallly respected him a lot more after that. I must have been 11 or 12 years old.

Wow. I remember seeing Jupiter Coyote at the Wetlands a few years back and I didn't know their songs or lyrics but they were a real good band. I did catch the Allmans refrence in that tune mentioned above and it made me like them even more....

Are they still around ?
