The Allman Brothers’ Best Song?

As we brace ourselves for a shakeup to The Allman Brothers lineup – with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks departing – we need your help in identifying the best songs in their extensive, extraordinary catalog. “Whipping Post”? “Come And Go Blues”? “Can’t Lose What You Never Had”? “Melissa”? “Blue Sky”?  “One Way Out”? The pool of great works is deep, indeed. Post your selection today, please (early and often).

We will determine the 10 most popular song entries, post the results and pull together a Playlist for you.



The live album At Fillmore East includes a wailing 23-minute “Whipping Post.”


Both Trucks and Haynes have announced they will leave the band at year’s end.

Who Do You Miss Most?

There’s no crying in Rock-N-Roll, but we do miss the members of the tribe who died along the way.

Nobody said it was gonna be easy to pick just one, but dig out your Allmans collection – and raise the roof.
