Southern Men: The Long Tall Saga of the Allman Brothers Band
Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, December 2002
"THIS AINT NO fashion show," Duane Allman liked to say. "We came here to play." It was a mission statement that summed up what his band was about. It said: Take us as you find us, six southern dudes in denim and centre-parted hair, playing churchy white soul and home-cooked rocknblues on Hammond organs and Fender basses and Gibson Les Paul guitars. Aint no make-up round these parts.
