Allman's Brothers Calling it Quits

March calls to mind a few events, St. Patty's Day, March Madness, Spring Training and something that happens on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Peakin' @ The Beacon:
While the title of this post isn't breaking news we wanted to take a second to toast the Brothers band. We aren't mega-fans of the group but we have seen them live a bunch and have done a few posts on them in the past. This one is very video heavy so click that read more button, turn up your speakers and jump into things:

The group in recent years has harkened back to their glory days with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks dominating the guitar slots for the group.

Nothing will top the groups heyday when Duane Allman and Dickey Betts were dueling on axe's:

but they are still going strong.

We wanted to thank (quickly becoming our favorite site) for linking us to Cameron Crowe's article which inspired Almost Famous. You can read the whole thing here and it is an amazing...even more so when you realize how young Crowe was when writing this.
While odds are we have seen our last show of theirs, there is no denying their power they are a Great American Band and should be treated as such so pick your favorite boomer and have a blast listening to some tunes...
