Great Southern rock band, I think everyone can agree. Great fiddle s*** in alot of their music. Anyone else think so?

By the way, they performed "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"

^Good song, good song.

I hate myself, they came to my area about a week ago, ticj=kets were $12, and I didn't go.
I did go to Styx the next day, though, but I wish I would have gotten tickets to Charlie Daniels too.

I feel like Southern rock gets appreciation everywhere in the states.

I live in the South now, but I'm originally from New York where all of my family lives. I go visit quite often and I hear The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc. played on the radio constantly when I'm there.

Besides that, The Allman Brothers Band have an annual two-week stay at The Beacon Theatre in the City.

With that, some of the guys I know on the site from Jersey and such love The Allman Brothers.

Maybe Southern rock is played more often in the South, but I think it's appreciated everywhere - atleast in the States.

^^Well it's called Southern rock because that's where the band is from.

Sometimes you consider bands Southern rock because of sound - take Credeence Clearwater Revival, for instance. People consider them Southern rock, even though they're actually from California.

i think it's more about the sound

lynyrd skynyrd wouldn't be southern rock if they were straight out of alabama, playing fall out boy would they?

southern rock is called southern rock because, originally, it came from the south. and that sound that came from the south became southern rock. thus, if you sounded like it, you'd be considered southern rock, no matter where you came from, i think

and for the record, i'd consider CCR more country-rock

^^Yeah, I honestly don't think it's fair to classify a band or not classify a band as Southern rock based upon where they are from, but generally bands from the South - especially the Deep South, tend to be Southern rock bands.

These bands, include, as you said, Lynyrd Skynyrd, who are from Alabama.

Then there are bands who are from the South, such as The Charlie Daniels Band, who were formed in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The Allman Brothers Band are sort of a mix between the two, being based out of Macon Georgia, but forming out of Jacksonville, Florida.

As long as we're talking about southern rock, I remember Gregg Allman saying once (I forget in what context... some interview) that he didn't understand the title "southern rock," because rock comes from blues, and blues comes from the south, so really "southern rock" is just like saying "rock rock."

Or something like that.
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.

^^That makes perfect sense, actually.

However, there's different types of blues - it originated in the South, but look at how many types of blues there are - delta-blues, Chicago-blues, country-blues, British-blues, etc.

However, as you (well, Gregg) stated, blues originated in the South.

That's probably why you see most Southern rock bands incorporating blues into their music more than other bands.
