The Allman Brothers: Dream

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, October 1989

THE STORY OF The Allman Brothers Band has been one of the great epics of rock 'n' roll, replete with all the Homeric ingredients of love, death, high old times, corruption and disgrace, while hardnosing the highway for a good few more miles than Odysseus and Aeneas managed between them.
