  The Allman Brothers Band - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Allman Brothers Band is a pioneering and innovative Southern rock and blues group from Macon, Georgia.
The band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida on March 26, 1969, and consisted of Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar), Gregg Allman (vocals, organ), Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums) and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums).
The band's rendition of Blind Willie McTell's "Statesboro Blues" was a straight-ahead opener, the powerful "Whipping Post" became the standard for a long, epic jam that never lost interest, while the ethereal-to-furious "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" invited comparisons to John Coltrane and Miles Davis.

Although the band frequently got mired in self-indulgent, monotonous blues jams, they had piles of instrumental virtuosity, and occasionally were given fine ballads to work with by singer/organ player/main songwriter Gregg Allman.
Ironically, the band's first post-Duane record was also its most commercially successful: it topped the album charts, went gold, and featured a major hit - Betts' feel-good, up-tempo "Ramblin' Man," which not only finally put the Allman Brothers in the Top 40, but soared all the way to #2.
The Allman Brothers switched from Polydor to Arista at this point, but both of their efforts on that label were flops.
