How is it that they got inducted back in '95? So many more deserving artists have yet to be inducted and the Allmans got inducted in '95! Don't get me wrong me I love them but still...

Probably because they are one of the most important American rock bands in history and put out greater music than most artists who were also eligible at the time. Duane Allman is commonly mentioned among the all-time greatest guitarists and Gregg Allman's voice is truly unique. I'm all for opinions and respect yours, but it's my opinion that the Allmans are a bit underappreciated in terms of their contributions to rock music.

Yeah, Drew's on the money here. The Allman's are one of the all-time greats- by that I mean GREAT in the truest sense of the word. There might not be ten bands that deserve the honor more than these boys. Duane couldn't have waited another year to get in. He is arguably the best guitarist ever, between songs like Whipping Post, Midnight Rider, and his collaboration on Layla w/Clapton. Gregg is one of the great singers as well.

I'll use a quote from Bill Graham about the Allman's the last night of the famed Fillmore East: Ďand now we close with the best of them allí to argue for the Allman's being first ballot inductees.

Sure, they were only at the top of their game for three years...but oh, what a three years it was.

Hey Allman Brothers I just finished Gregg Allman,s book my cross to bear recently and it is quite the read he was defintely honest throughout the whole book I highly recommend it I have already heard it will be made into a movie as well.

WHEN I SAW THE ALLMAN BROS ON BOSTON COMMONS IN 1971 THAT WAS IT FOR ME. THEY HAVE BEEN MY FAVORITE BAND EVER SINCE. IT WAS A TRUE PRIVALEDGE TO THE THE ORIGINAL BAND. IN MY BOOK THEY ARE THE BEST BAND OF ALL TIME PERIOD.

Rock and Roll Jepordy Question:

If The Allman Brothers and Led Zeppelin did a song together what would they call it?

Posted by Karl Singleton on Thursday, 07.17.14 @ 22:42pm


The Allman Brothers Band is quite possibly the greatest band ever. They deserved induction in their first year. The only sad thing is that some of their other members, such as Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes, were not inducted with them.

Rock and Roll Jepordy Answer:

"Ramble On With A Ramblin' Man"

The Hall recognizes those who made somekind of change in music. It was THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND who created southern rock and sold out the Atlanta Stadium [52,000] by themselves. Uhhh....2000 more than the Beatles drew.

Don't know why I'm commenting here, but I just heard the song "Midnight Rider" again. Even after I've heard it a million times already, it's still a great song.
