While I love the Allman Brothers all of thier iterations, and all the members' side projects, I have to admit that if I had to choose an all time favorite band, none of the above would be it. Is anyone else here in that category. Are you brave enought here at HTW to admit that ABB or any of its sides (Dickey Betts, Gov't Mule, DTB, etc) are NOT you all time favorite band.

Mine is still Pink Floyd.
However if Warren and company keep it up....GM may one day knock Gilmour and friends off the podium.

Cool topic, took some testicular fortitude to post this. But you know what I fall in this category as well. I love the ABB especially the Duane Era, and Govt Mule IS my second favorite band of all time. But my favorite band of all time is The Doors...........Regardless of what people may think of him Jim Morrison was a great writer and front man.....IMO which is only important to me,

My musical tastes cover a wide array of styles so I don't have an absolute favorite....ABB are always on my player, though

Nobody but the original Allman Brothers Band is my all-time.
I love all the ABB versions, Marshall Tucker, Wet Willie, CDB, Outlaws,
all the blues greats.....but NOBODY does it like Duane and Berry.

Yep, they are my all time favorite. Only Rory Gallagher comes close. Other personal 10 ten artists, apart from ABB family bands, are The Black Crowes & Neil Young.

i absolutely would have the ovarian fortitude (great phrase Rhonda!) to admit it if there was a band or artist that i held above the ABB..but i love them first & foremost above & beyond all other groups, have since as long as i can remember...worthy enough to tattoo the stacked logo on my arm, lol! i do love all the other side projects such as the mule, dtb, susan & db&gs! i do have a host of others that come relatively close though, like csn with or w/o y & y solo, srv, bob seger, ...i can go on & on & on & on...depends on my mood! sometimes i get in heavy rock moods too & pull out my old standbys like ac/dc & metallica, Godsmack etc...

Probably MY favorite band...not sure if I would call them the greatest band ever though.

I do tend to like solo artists more than bands...Clapton, SRV, Buddy Guy are among my favorites.

What HooHead said. I have a lot of favorites (Dylan, Van, Pink Floyd, Santana to name a few). Most of my current faves have been at the top of my list for many years. ABB is one of them.

My all-time favorite band is the original Mule line-up, with the original ABB line-up becoming a very close second the last couple of years with the help of the Duane-era archive recordings. My current favorite band to see live is dTb.
I love alot of other bands/musicians, but I guess there is a reason I only hang on this band website.

Reasons the Allman Brother's Band is My Personal Favorite:

1. Even on an off night, they're still the tightest live band in the world.
2. They don't do anything on their studio albums that they can't duplicate or even do better live.
3. They're not pretentious or arty. Duane once even said, "... no reason to come see us. Nobody's gonna dress up or anything".
4. I pretty much discovered them on my own. Growing up my dad had Hank W., mom had big bands, my brother had the Beatles and my sisters had the Motown girl-groups. I fell upon the ABB all by myself!
5. Tickets to shows are still reasonable - especially when compared to many of the bands still around from the days of their inception.
6. When they cover songs, the songs become theirs. For instance, I know that Willie McTell wrote Statesboro, and Taj came up with the arrangement - but the version on LFE is all about the ABB!
7. They allow taping and trading of shows.
8. Best website in rock and roll! Thanks Lana and Rowland for everything!
9. So many "fringe and family" bands. From stuff like Eddie Hinton to Cowboy to the Derek Trucks band -Mule-Oteil and the Peacemakers-Frogwings - all of it just amzing!
10. Best fans in the world! Despite what a former roadie says, we DO INDEED have a brotherhood!

My all time favorite band is the Grateful Dead. Mule is my favorite band touring today. Also in top five are the ABB, Tull and Neil Young. I really love anything Dan Baird does (rock 'n roll IS NOT DEAD!!!) too. Love Willie a greatr deal. Many many more but too numeruous to expound upon at this time.

Ditto Rusty.

While I love ABB the best, I have lots of room in my heart for the bands of my youth, like Grand Funk Railroad, ZZ Top, CDB, MTB, etc.

Of the active bands ABB was and is my favorite - No. 1.

I do love a lot of bands. From the past MTB, the original or the 1977 Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Currently, I love Jimmy Hall and Tinsley Ellis. And I love Gregg and Friends.

The Band is a close second to ABB as an all time favorite.

If I felt differently, I would say so.

I cannot get enough of the Brothers, and they are still the band that I go to see most often.

However, my favorite band is TOOL. They have been since 1992, when I first heard "Sober" (I was 12). After I saw them live for the first time in 2001 (I saw 8 shows on that tour), it was official that they are, in my opinion, the greatest/most original/most inventive band ever.

There, I said it.

My all time favorite bands are AEROSMITH and The ALLMAN BROTHERS. Both bands rock me like no one else. After that, I dig all of PAUL RODGERS' bands, AC/DC, ZEP, JANE'S ADDICTION.

At the risk of sounding like a wise ass (which don't get me wrong, I totally am, however don't mean to be here.....and while they are my favorite all time band), I don't understand why it takes balls to admit on a web board that the Allman's aren't yours. There's tons of music out there, I highly doubt the boys themselves would be offended if you told them they weren't your favorite band ever let alone some guy behind a computer screen in Boofoo, NE.

Um, get your body parts correct, it's ovaries . And that part of my original post was in jest, but also making fun of the people out there who wear blinders when it comes to music. They love Dickey, they love Duane, they love Gregg, they love Warren....they love whoever and think that the rest of us who do not pray at the altar of ABB are all idiots.
