I have to say that I've been to many a band's bulletin board but I've never come across one as popular as the Allman Brothers Band forum. You guys are really friendly, talk about every subject known, regular gig meet-ups and the amount of posts a day is so huge I wonder if anyone's in full time employment. I've never seen anything like it and wonder just how you manage it all. On the forum for my band ( http://www.snakeoilrattlers.co.uk ) we've got 7 members who post so rarely that the ISP even tried to shut it down last month for lack of use.

So come on, tell me. What's the secret?

I'd also like to say that I'm very happy to part of this too.

It all started with the music.
We were drawn to it almost hypnotically, and we're still under the spell.

The Allman Brothers Band ...we're all part of it, and we're still here...and we don't want that special feeling to end. So here we are.

Glad your part of it too.

I have two jobs and still find time to talk and spread music to my Brothers and Sisters. This is a place of loce, respect and friendship as Lefty said.

It is the Allman Brothers Band music, and the spirit of Duane and Berry.

Specials folks that love special music.

I also have never been on a message board like this. It's the only one I actually spend time on anymore. Good times or bad times, you always have friends here. We have our arguments and disagreements...but in the end things usually work out.

Some of the people on this website have been better friends to me, than friends I have ran with in the past.

and if you need Prayers and Vibes,there's no place like it....I luv em.

LMFAO! Now that is comedy.

This is a great place and the people are even better. Lefty summed it up rather well.

Those are elements for the basis of any good relationship. I have had many health issues over the last couple of years and a string of bad luck. Got more support from some of the members here than I did from family members. Messages, discs and kind, caring wishes came my way and I could never say enough about how that helped.

Thank you to all here. A finer group of people have never been assembled.

Lefty is right on it is a combination of all of these ingredients that make the whole thing work....but most of all it is the people i have met alot of them and they are the best bunch of people i have ever met.... glad you got on board....welcome

P.S. the music ain't bad either ... LOL

I think Lefty summed that up pretty well ... plus they don't even mind that I'm a "Limey"

Hope you're keeping well Barry ... maybe see you at O'Neills for a brew before the Bonamassa gig on Feb 15th

Just my .02.......The music of the Allman Brothers Band is not something that appeals to the average soul. The people that are passionately drawn to this music have something in common inside them. To be sure, there is wide diversity in personalities, lifestyles, backgrounds, and life experiences. But there is something, a powerful intangeble, at work too. It's impossible to explain to someone who hasn't been a part of it for awhile.
But we know it's there. As stated before, I don't believe the coming together of these people is a random event.


Stick around for awhile, Hippy69. Check out the place and the people. After a while, if we get to know you well enough, we might even show you the secret handshake.

I agree that the forum on this site is unbelievable. I have been a long time fan of the Allmans, but I am new to this forum. It is refreshing to see how much like family people on here make you feel.

I use a whole lotta this . LOL!

This is just a great group of folks here. When I joined in March '06 I was welcomed so warmly. Since then I've met some of my best buddies from here at shows across the country. This is great place! Oh....and there's that band too.

As for full time empoloyment, I am employed full time. I've just learned to fake work VERY well.

Great music attracts great people. You'll find some of the kindest people here you could hope to meet and a wealth of musical knowledge that includes but is not exclusive to the band that brought us together.

I seldom post but read the sight almost daily. Meet us at the Beacon one year and it will all become clear.

I'm rollin' on Colin. Where's Bonamassa playing? I haven't got a ticket but might be up for a few beers beforehand.

Colin (Harvey) taught be the secret handshake a while back. If I recall my reply was "OOOooo I say Sir!!!"

Joe Bonamassa is at the Shepherds Bush Empire on Friday 15th Feb ... still some tickets available ... as it is a Friday I might even get the train in that day and stick around for a few brews afterwards
