i think its the best kind of music out there, the musicans are all down to earth and the music isnt really out there its just cut to the bone rock and roll. Just tell me what you think about it.

yes it a great genre,and yes skynyrd and pantera rule.but there are alot of other great southern rock bands out there that dont get enough credit or attention
#6
Skynyrd is my favorite band of all time but there are alot of other southern rock bands that get overshadowed, like molly hatchet, the marshall tucker band, etc. Even though Skynyrd is the greatest, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman brothers are just about the only southern rock bands you hear about
#8
I actually think that The Allman Brothers Band created the genre because they actually formed officially and released their debut album before Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The Allman Brothers Band aren't just my favorite Southern rock, but also my favorite band period apart from Led Zeppelin (I prefer The Allman Brothers Band live, but Led Zeppelin in the studio).

Lynyrd Skynyrd is pretty good, too, but I don't like some of their songs that are preaching the ideas that "the South will rise again".

They're a good, band, though, and I saw them live with The Allman Brothers in 2004.

Of course, there are some other Southern rock bands such as The Georgia Satellites, The Charlie Daniels Band, and The Marshall Tucker Band; among many more. These other bands, however, aren't as popular overall as either The Allman Brothers or Skynyrd.

Southern rock is a very cool genre. The bands who do it just right, like the Allmans, Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, and Marshall Tucker, add just enough of that country feel to the hard rock they play to make it a blast to hear.

* I believe you meant to insert "just" here?

I love the Allman Brothers. Skynyrd sometimes too, but I admit that I get tired of the Freebird solos (if your cover band did Freebird as an encore, you just might get the tiniest bit sick too). I like Southern Rock overall though... we have a pretty big Allman Brothers thread in here you should check out (threadstarter).

Southern Rock is ok, it can sometimes get abit obnoxious at times (molly hatchett, .38 special, charlie daniels) but stuff like Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers is great. I personally think the Allmans are way better than Skynyrd but thats just my feelings on it.

Yes, I meant to put that in.

I was just about to suggest The Allman Brothers Thread too.

The typical Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Allman Bros. of course, but remember Train,Train by Blackfoot? Another killer band lost to obscurity. Hell, they're still jamming. Wish they'd come my way.
#18
Southern Rock is one of the best types of music out there. I'm surprised no one said anything about the "Outlaws" yet,(Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, David Allan Coe, ect.) Waylon Jennings is a great guitar player.

to havocrus, i just saw skynyrd a few days ago in Raliegh, NC and Rickey Medlock of blackfoot is touring with skynyrd now, he takes Allen Collins (R.I.P.) place in the lineup. He was awesome though he tore it up on the freebird solo, no one but Allen could have done it better.


I dont think i spelled rickeys last name right sorry dont know how

I think Lynyrd Skynyrd solos were crap compared to Allman Brothers solos. Lynyrd Skynyrd solos either sound to scripted or repetitive.

I only really like Skynard for "Freebird"

But for southern rock, I love the Allman Brothers(what I've heard from them), Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, 38 Special(if you count them) and especially the Charlie Daniels Band.

Of course, a lot of those bands are also considered country also and moreso.

I'd almost consider Cash, Jennings, Kristofferson, and Nelson folk-rock or country-rock, as you stated in your last sentence.

However, I've heard that Nelson doesn't really limit his playing to folk and country, and he can really play anything, but I've never personally heard him (yet - I might see him with John Fogerty this Saturday).
#27
apart from those bands suggested above

Black Oak Arkansas is brilliant as well

Nelson puts on a really good show, and yeah it is true that he can play about anyhting, a year ago he released a reggae album.

BTW, the four guys you listed were also in a band together, The Highwaymen. I've only heard one of their songs, but it's pretty awesome.

Ozark Mountian DareDevils, Confederate Railroad, Blackfoot, and Drive-By Truckers are all great underrated Southern Rock bands. Check them out.
#36
^^the Drive-By Truckers are pretty good. They kept my attention when they opened for the Black Crowes last Saturday. I'd like to hear some studio stuff so I can further judge on what I think of them.

The only southern rock bands I like are The Allman Bros and Skynyrd. Both are great bands who have had their share of amazing musicians over the years.

Shooter's good, he did a great cover of one of his dad's songs, I've Always Been Crazy, sounds very good.
