The Allman Brothers Band Back On The Road This Summer
The Allman Brothers Band are taking the show on the road this summer for a series of 15 concerts. The band has just added stops in August and September in Scranton, Pennsylvania; Chicago; Hartford, Connecticut; Gilford, New Hampshire; Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina; Alpharetta, Georgia; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Mansfield, Massachusetts; and Wantagh, New York. Steve Winwood will open for the band on a handful of shows.
 
Galadrielle Allman, the daughter of late-guitarist Duane Allman helped compile the exhaustive seven-disc set, Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective, which is receiving raves from fans and critics alike. She told us that although only two at the time of her father's fatal motorcycle crash on October 29th, 1971 -- he's still been around to help guide her along the way: "I've been sort of parented by the music. Y'know, the lessons of the music, and the spirit of it, and the passion of it, has been a hugely instructive thing in my life. So, in that way, it is him for me. I was talking about Warren Haynes about it last night, that, y'know, the leaps between '69 and '70 there's a leap between (laughs) '70 and '71 there's a huge leap. It's like what would '72 have brought him? Y'know, he was really deeply engaged in constantly learning."
