·  What's the deal with the Allman Brothers Band and motorcylces?

Duane and Gregg grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida, which is about as close to biker heaven as you can get. Sturgis, South Dakota may have a bigger motorcycle rally each summer, but Daytona Beach bikers go hog wild year 'round. Duane got a HD 165 when he was 13 years old, and promptly wrecked it. Dickey was a biker way back before it all began for the Allman Brothers Band. He used to tear around the south wearing a Levi jacket with a patch on the back that said "Eat Shit". One of the ways the band unwound in Macon after practice or playing a gig was to careen up and down the streets late at night as "Midnight Riders". Sadly, Duane and Berry were both killed in motorcycle accidents.

·  Who's the guy who introduces the Allman Brothers Band at concerts?

The man behind the curtain ain't the Wizard of Oz ... he's Bert Holman, manager of the ABB.

·  Where did the band members get those mushroom tatoos?

Lyle Tuttle, who has a studio in San Francisco, did the mushroom tatoo on the right calf of each band member (except Warren, who doesn't like needles!).

Back to top


·  Why are the pictures backwards on the Seven Turns album?

How come the pictures of Dickey, Warren and Allen are printed backwards on the Seven Turns cover? They appear to be lefties but they are not? ... No one in the ABB's mgmt. or art dept. at the time noticed that the negative of the picture was flopped. When the mistake was finally noticed, the cover was reprinted. So, both left-handed and right-handed copies exist. This is true of vinyl, cds, and tape. The left-handed prints are something of a collector's item that the ABB is interested in.

You might also be interested in knowing that one of the original renderings of Seven Turns cover art featured seven birds in flight. It seems the artist misunderstood the title and drew "Seven Terns". I -swear- this is true!

·  What's with this "Peach Pit" / "Peach Bud" etc. next to my name in the Forum?!

These are "just for fun" rankings that go up the more you post. There are a number of levels -- do you have what it takes to become a Peach Master ;-) ?

·  In the last year, I've become quite possibly the biggest Allman Brothers fan ever. I'm obsessed. I saw them in June, 2001, and am going crazy wondering when they will tour again in the Philly area. When do you think it will be?

For the last ten years or so the ABB have done a theatre run in NYC (at the Beacon Theatre for the last few years) in March, and then hit the sheds and pavilions over the summer. There have been some extra tours in the Spring and Fall, but those are less regular. Philly fans are lucky -- it's not that far to NYC, and you can get a king size helping of ABB in the Big Apple in March, as well as enjoy shows within a couple hours driving in PA, NJ, NY, and even MD.

·  I wonder why the Allman Brothers don't come to Europe, the have played in the past in Paris I believe, but that was before I was born ! I believe there are a lot of fans in Europe who want to see them live. Thank you for answering , GJ

There are too few major venues, too far apart, in Europe to support a show as large as the ABBs. Also, the outdoor concert season is essentially the same as it is in America and the band wants to give as many fans as possible the opportunity to see them. One of the great things about the Beacon run is that if you do decide to come over from Europe, you'll get to see numerous shows in one place. Lots of folks (from Iceland, Japan, France, the UK, and the Netherlands for example) have done it and had an amazing time.

·  How do I sign up for the Peach Corps?

When you register at this site, you're in!

·  What is the ABB show photography policy for the 2002 Beacon shows?

Most venues have an explicit "no photography" policy. Many fans seem to have been able to take a discreet snapshot from their seats and the band is OK with this. The band is not OK with leaving your seat to take pix, elaborate equipment with big zoom lenses, or flash photography.

·   Hi, I have always been a fan of the Allmans and have become more so since Warren started Gov't Mule. I can't seem to get enough of the music Warren's been putting out with the Mule and was wondering if there will ever be an Allman Brothers/Gov't mule joint tour(?). Hoping to see the Brothers in Raleigh this summer.

Though it's not a tour, the Mule opens for the ABB this summer - June 29 in Indianapolis. The ABB are the only band to play every season at Walnut Creek since it opened. Chances are very good you'll see them there late this summer.

·  What is the Big House ? Why was it call that? Where is it?

The Big House was the home where several members of the Allman Brothers Band lived in the late, late 60s and very early 70s. The address is 2317 Vineville Ave., Macon, GA. It was called the Big House because it was/is big.

They often pass sticks out after a concert. You might also want to send us an email to forward to them with a request. That's not a guarantee - just a promise to give the message to them.

The ABB support and encourage audio taping as long as it's ok with the venue. There isn't a taper's section, or taper's tix - record from your seat, being respectful of the person next to you.
