Born in Nashville. Raised in Daytona Beach. Stints in St. Louis and Los Angeles. Settled and recorded in Macon, Georgia. The Allman Brothers Band indeed earned the title of their No. 1 hit, "Ramblin' Man," only all their rambling was mainly in the Southern United States.

They are considered co-founders of the popular music genre, "Southern Rock."

Now-deceased, Gregg Allman and Duane Allman nevertheless have Alabama connections.

They lived in Tuscaloosa and drove an emblazoned van around the University of Alabama campus in 1968. It announced, "The Allman Joys." That was an early name for their band, a takeoff on the well-known candy bar by the same name.

That version of the Allmans had recorded at Alabama's Muscle Shoals Sound studios. Their regional hit was "Spoonful," an Allmanized cover of an old southern blues song by Howlin' Wolf. Duane Allman worked as a much-in-demand studio musician in Muscle Shoals.

Chuck Leavell, born in Birmingham and settled in Tuscaloosa, joined the Allman Brothers following the death of founder and leader Duane Allman.

Now, a tribute to the Allman Brothers Band is coming to Alabama. "Eat A Peach," a Brothers' tribute band, will perform in the Shelby County seat of Columbiana on Friday, March 1.
