To date there have been performers, producers, managers, etc inducted into the HOF, but no roadies. What better way to correct this oversight than by inducting the most famous roadies of all time, Red Dog and Joe Dan?

Mike Callahan

Mike Callahan, another founding road crew member, worked with Twiggs, and Tuffy to handle the sound systems. One of the cooler things we've been able to do here at Hittin' the Web was to hook Mike Callahan and Willie Perkins up via email after more than 20 years of being out of touch!

Roadies Past and Present

The Allman Brothers Band has long had the philosophy that "The Band" was not just the guys playing instruments, but everyone who worked together to put the show on every night. The crew, the roadies -- the ABB first honored them publicly on the back of the Fillmore East album.
