Allman Brothers Band
In 1969, brothers Gregg and Duane Allman launched what would become one of southern music’s (and jam music’s) greatest bands. Within two years of forming, they produced “At Fillmore East,” widely considered one of the best live albums ever produced. That was the beginning of the Allman Brothers Band’s commercial success. Tragically, just a few months later, in 1971, Duane was killed in a motorcycle accident. Gregg continues on, backed by a stable of modern legends including Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks. —Jeff Royer
