 Blue Floyd blends rock, blues
Comprised of former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford, bassist/singer Berry Oakley, Gov't Mule sticks man Matt Abts and ex-Allman Brothers Band keyboard player Johnny Neel, the Blue Floyd lineup is an all-star ensemble picked from the who's who of '90s blues rock.
Eventually Oakley crept back onto stage, lowered the bass strap over his neck and matched Abts' drumming feats with a melodic bass solo that bled into "Brain Damage." After the first verse, Neel and Ford returned to stage and back to work.
Berry Oakley handled the bass duties masterfully and managed the songs' vocal styles very well.

 Raymond Berry Oakley   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Berry Oakley was an incredibly inventive and melodic bassist - yet somehow has never achieved the kind of revered quality amongst bassists as Duane has amongst guitarists.
This is a gross injustice, as without Berry the band would never have developed in the way it did.
He was constantly pushing whoever was soloing to greater and greater hights, and had a sense of anticipation which was unparalleled then and has hardly been touched now.

The night before I was to leave, Gregg Allman - still mourning the recent deaths of his legendary guitarist-brother Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley - had a late-night vision that the FBI could possibly be using me to investigate his band.
Most of the brothers believe that it was the new musical direction that brought Berry Oakley out of a year-long depression he had suffered after Duane Allman's death.
Oakley's playing degenerated, and though the band doesn't admit it, there had been some vague thought given to perhaps replacing him.

The remaining members - Gregg Allman on vocals and keyboards, Dickey Betts on guitar, Berry Oakley on bass, and drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe - hit the stage less than a month after Duane's death, and the music that literally burned with passion served as the best possible form of grieving.
Berry had always played bass like a third guitarist, but with Duane gone, Oakley's playing became monstrous - his thundering lines filled all sorts of voids in the music with an emotion and splendor that was part evil, part magic.
On November 11, 1972, Berry Oakley was killed when his motorcycle collided with a city bus in Macon, only three blocks from the site of Duane's fatal crash.
