History

The band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida on March 26, 1969. The band members were Duane Allman (slide guitar & lead guitar), Gregg Allman (vocal, organ), Dickey Betts (lead guitars, vocal), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums) and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). Duane and Gregg had originally been in a garage band called The Escorts.

Duane Allman killed in a motorcycle accidents on October 29, 1971 in Macon, Georgia when he collided with a lumber truck. Dickey Betts filled Duane's former role in completing the last album he participated. After some concerts the band added Chuck Leavell (pianist) to gain another lead instrument but without directly replacing Duane.

Berry Oakley died in another motorcycle accident on November 11, 1972 only three blocks away from the site of Duane Allman's fatal accident. Oakley was replaced by Lamar Williams at the end of 1972.

Personality conflicts started to tear the band apart during late 70's and 80's when Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts both began their solo album. In 1989 The Allman Brothers reunited and returned to popular consciousness of the American public until present day.
