The Allman Brothers Band remains one of the most critically admired and commercially successful groups of its era. Although many of the band’s best songs were created in Jacksonville, Florida, VOIDCAST host Matt Shaw argues the band is wildly underappreciated locally. We’ll dive into the formative period of the Allman Brothers Band, a span of roughly four passion-, drug-, and kismet-fueled months, in which all of the pieces of this legendary group came together in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood. We’ll hear from Linda Miller, the widow of ABB bassist Berry Oakley, as well as Melody Trucks, daughter of ABB drummer Butch Trucks, and music journalist Daniel Brown.
