Recently, both Dicky Betts and Gregg Allman have been working on solo albums. Gregg got a call from Liberty “telling me to get my ass back to California or they’d sue us for $48,000 that Hour Glass still owed them.” For the first and only time in their musical careers, Duane and Gregg split. Russell then climbs to the roof of the house and screams “I’m a golden god,” before jumping into the pool below. Because I was sick of being up all night and by the time I got to sleep the damn maid would be banging on the door. While Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand each earned Oscar nominations for best actress in a supporting role, the film’s top-billed star is Billy Crudup, who plays Russell Hammond, the longhaired, mustachioed, Gibson-wielding guitarist for Stillwater. After a year of practice, Duane and Gregg were playing with the local bands like the Shufflers, the Escorts, the Y-Teens. Even though Duane appeared once or twice with Derek and the Dominoes, roadie Red Dogs says, “He never forgot about the Allman Brothers Band. Duane and Gregory Allman were born in 1946 and 1947 in Nashville, Tennessee, just as the city was experiencing its first studio-building boom. “THE ALLMAN JOYS ARE BACK! After the sessions, Hour Glass split and Duane and Gregg took the van to Jacksonville, Florida, where their friend and sometimes pick up drummer, Butch Trucks, was preparing to record an album with his band (now called the 31st of February). I’m not going to tell you exactly what or where it is, but it’s always there. “Well, a lot of my songs I wrote I had the crowd in mind. He’s probably still down there. I came back the next day, got it, and proceeded to wear that son of a bitch out. And the only real chance of seeing Betts back on stage is if he makes another cameo appearance with the Allman Betts Band his son Duane formed with Gregg’s son Devon and fellow second-generation Allman Brothers standout Berry Duane Oakley. “I haven’t been on the road in a while because of my health but I like the crowds mainly, and what the music did for them,” he says.

SAY ANYTHING… (1989) Written and directed by Cameron Crowe. I would go buddy up with some people and just go to their house, y’know, like in the movie. For quite a few months, that’s all he thought about. “People ask me things like, ‘Was I in the original band? He was obsessed with Duane.”, Oakley’s playing degenerated, and though the band doesn’t admit it, there had been some vague thought given to perhaps replacing him. I work real hard to make music, they just came to enjoy it, y’know? Matter of fact, I put hands on my first guitar November 10th, 1960 at three o’clock that Saturday afternoon. I had real good luck with him when he was with Creem (magazine).’ I did an interview with him and he did a real nice article. After having largely completed their new album “Brothers and Sisters,” and with record buyers lining up to purchase copies of their previous LPs “At Fillmore East” and “Eat a Peach,” the Allman Brothers returned to the road in early ’73 with a new lineup and new fans, having graduated from playing clubs and theaters to sports arenas and stadiums. Joe Tex’s manager caught the Allman Joys at one of the Southern teen clubs and they eventually recorded two albums worth of material for his label, Dial Records. “It was so hard to get into anything after that second loss,” Gregg says. Campbell was one of the original Allman Brothers Band roadies (he embraced that term and preferred it to “crew member”). And it was really nice to see that. “And he took Cameron’s tapes in his backpack and he was going to get rid of them or something. At the foot of College Street is this old cemetery, Rose Hill. He was thrown 20 yards and died several hours later of a brain concussion. That’s when the success was, Jack. Crowe was in a near-fatal plane crash while traveling with The Who.The character of Russell Hammond is based on Glenn Frey of Eagles. “We sent an attorney out there to talk that over with him,” he says without particular emphasis, as if this is the way civilized folks deal with the irritating problems. Big time. But the real question, as Gregg Allman puts it, is not why the Brothers are popular; it is how they managed to survive the loss of their driving force, the focus of their energy, the “father of the family.”. The accident occurred only three blocks from the site of Duane Allman’s fatal crash, a year and two weeks later. Cameron Crowe wanted to come out on the road and do a story with us and the band didn’t want it. The movie “Almost Famous” was partially based on experiences director/writer Cameron Crowe had while as a Rolling Stone journalist covering an early-70s Allman Brothers tour. “Liberty was paying all our expenses for us until we earned enough to pay them back.” But a company pays only so much money on losing items and soon Hour Glass was, “groveling for money just to get a burger.” It got worse. Crowestarted experimenting with his talent at a tender age. For instance, Kate Hudson plays groupie Penny Lane, who has a relationship with Russell before he trades her to the band Humble Pie for $50 and a case of beer during a game of poker, which is also attended by Red Dog. I was bad about going home with people, though. Dicky would sometimes go down there at night with his acoustic guitar and write songs. Success was being able to keep your brain inside your head.”. – Cameron Crowe – Summer 2000. Later, Crowe would turn his career into a semi autobiographical film called Almost Famous. Days later, the tapes arrived at my house with an apology note from Gregg Allman. In which a rock & roll band from Dixie struggles in dreary motels, six-session-a-night grinds and a $48,000 debt, then a couple years later plays to sellout crowds for $100,000 a night…all the while riding the shotgun to death. “That’s when the trouble started in the family,” Gregg recalls. “What really happened was the next day Gregg got paranoid about what he had said to the guy, I guess,” Betts says. A month later, they made good on two scheduled Carnegie Hall dates, then threw themselves into feverish work completing the fourth album, Eat a Peach, released in early 1972. We played three or four hours without stopping and when we finished, Duane looked around and said, ‘Man, this is it.’ He got on the phone and called Gregg in California.”, That was March 23rd, 1969. But, it’s not until 20 minutes later that Betts really takes notice: When onto the big screen walks Billy Crudup as Russell Hammond, the lead guitarist of the band Stillwater and the rock star who becomes closest with Patrick Fugit’s character William Miller, the rock writer based on a teenage Crowe. “You’ve got to consider why anybody wants to become a musician anyway,” Gregg says. “The social scene in Daytona Beach was simple,” Duane Allman once said, “the white cats surf and the blacks play music.” The Allmans, of course, played music, and in 1963, in the era of civil rights marches and murders. He strolled into the New York showroom on little more than a whim and informed the salesman that he’d write a check for the Rolls in the window. I said, ‘Your character in that movie reminds me a lot of myself.’ He said he was basing his character on me. When it did, he quit school. In later years, Duane Allman would be buried there and the band would play a deeply felt set at the funeral in his memory. “The real question,” he says, “is not why we’re so popular. For the iconic magazine he … The Allmans worked on the LP as sidemen, and were paid as such. — Wade Tatangelo, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s entertainment editor, wrote the liner notes for the Dickey Betts Band’s 2019 CD/DVD release “Ramblin’ Man Live at the St. George Theatre.” Email him at It is as if the band draws its strength and determination from being “the hottest band around.” They not only stayed on the road, they worked seven nights a week, six sets a night. Like trying to imagine how they would react to it. They cruised on down to Nashville, and combined forces with drummer Johnny Sandlin, keyboard artist Paul Hornsby, and a “cat called the Wolf” on bass; part of another fragmented band called the Five Minutes. “We stole his bass and told him to get the fuck out,” Gregg says. “He quit school, I don’t how many times too. Crowe would later emerge as a top Hollywood filmmaker and following his blockbuster “Jerry Maguire” made the semi-autobiographical “Almost Famous,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary next month. As I’m walking down the hall, there was this door open. He interacted with several legends like Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, and King Crimson. '” Jaimo says. In the movie, Rolling Stone’s editors are thrilled with William’s profile of Stillwater but when the magazine’s fact checker calls the band, Russell tells her 90% of it has been fabricated and the magazine refuses to run the piece. He was happy playing live club dates to wildly enthusiastic audiences and had the gut feeling that he wasn’t going to get to play in California. Problem was, the Allman Brothers weren’t on speaking terms with Rolling Stone following an unnecessarily cruel piece written by associate editor Grover Lewis and published by the magazine a few weeks after Duane Allman’s death in ’71. In ’67, following the demise of the Joys, Gregg and Duane were living out of a van without so much as a telephone to contact a lawyer, or anyone else. There was a tombstone nearby that read IN MEMORY OF ELIZABETH REED, so that’s what I called the tune. The hotel television is on; the sound is off. What it would mean to them.” Your songs are uplifting, I tell Betts. The cycle skidded and flipped over, dragging Allman nearly 50 feet. “Crudup’s look, and much more, is a tribute to Dickey,” Crowe told Rolling Stone in 2017. He has added to the Allman sound, and freed them from an exclusive blues base. We all do.”. We never really wrote anything together but we wrote well, his songs and my songs went together really well.”. That band was really tight, playing R&B and Yardbirds tunes by the hundreds. Gregg still dresses in the patchy street style of his shuffling days. He needed a lot of other guys to get that full sound he wanted.”, In search of those musicians – and with the Capricorn-Walden contract in hand, Duane moved back to Jacksonville with Jaimo. In 1977 rolling stone Magazine relo… That was pretty real to life.”. Russell attends with just William and has a great time with his fans, who give him acid. She cheered me up and sent me home. We all used to go down there and have a good time. Most of the guys at that funeral were stuporous with grief, but they handled it beautifully, and I think you really have to look at it communally. “That was one thing, that might have been somebody else, one of the other bands, the Eagles or Led Zeppelin,” Betts says. “We stayed first at the Mikado Motel, then at the Caheunga down by the Hollywood Bowl. He worked as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. Eerily, the circumstances of the accident would – even the place where it happened – recapitulate the tragedy of Duane Allman. All they had to do was come out to California and he would take them under his wing. Because I can still play? The film is director Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical account of life as a young Rolling Stone reporter. We would have done small clubs in the valley, but they told us we’d blow the whole image if we did that. “For a long time,” says Butch Trucks, “our only mode of travel was an Econoline van. Gregg Allman distrusted him, and kept asking if he was a narc. They headlined before 600,000 at Watkins Glen, and though an agreement with the promoter prevents an official statement on the Allmans’ gross, a spokesman for Capricorn Records, the Brothers’ company, states flatly that it was “astronomical.” They have played to sell-out crowds in America’s largest arenas and stadiums. “They did all the arrangements and all the songs. Flash forward to 2000. Today, of the founding six-man Allman Brothers Band lineup, only Betts and drummer Jaimoe are with us. Shortly after leaving the house about 5:45 p.m. he swerved to avoid a truck, which was moving in the same direction, but which he had apparently not seen in time after it turned onto the street. Both were 24. Duane’s guitar got into the picture shortly after that.”. “The band lived there a while and when we began to get $100-a-night gigs, Duane moved a block and a half away and Dicky moved down the street. And it turned out, he did a good article on us.”. Five reds and slug of HC and you can sleep through anything.”, The first two or three tours bombed but, says, Trucks, “Phil Walden had complete faith in us, and I’ll respect him forever for that. Relaxing at home on Little Sarasota Bay, Dickey Betts laughs when asked what it was like to be a rock star in 1973. Paraphrasing (inappropriately) what we said. Almost Famous at 20: Cameron Crowe's warm-hearted ode to music journalism ... and wrote his first Rolling Stone cover story on the Allman Brothers Band … You can imagine how the girl I wrote it for felt after that.”, With the new material rehearsed, the band chose an agent and set out on the road doing nearly 500 dates in two years. He rose from a writer to be one of the editors of the publication. The accent comes up out of Nashville, by way of Georgia, makes a dash across the States and ends up vaguely California. And Berry Oakley would be buried at Rose Hill. A real garbage motel, and all of us in one room. And it was probably the closest to what the road is like more than any rock movie that I have seen. I was vouching for him and finally talked the guys into letting him come out with us. He rarely goes to movies, but his wife Donna reads about one she thinks they might enjoy, and so they go and see “Almost Famous.” During the opening credits, the camera offers a glimpse of an Allman Brothers Band ticket stub from a show held in Crowe’s hometown of San Diego at the Sports Arena on Aug. 5, 1972. Dickey Betts and I were talking for a half hour about the real Allman Brothers Band stories behind Cameron Crowe’s film “Almost Famous” — resulting in … “This guy’s trying to make fun of us, make fun of our Southern accents and stuff and we had invited him to travel on the road with us and he really took advantage of it. It never ran because of length constraints, but at the time Cameron said he … “I hear you’re doing a musical version of ‘Almost Famous,’” John said. “I even caught myself thinking that it’s narrowing down, that maybe I’m next.”, Typically, the Brothers chose to drown this kind of morbid speculation in hard work. When I was gone, he’d grab that axe and start picking. He loved and idolized Duane. I left the tour in an emotional mess and wound up catatonic in the San Francisco airport, where I ran into my then-stewardess sister Cindy. A 31st of February album was never released, which is just as well with Trucks, since he now considers his work on those sessions excruciatingly embarrassing. I said, ‘Man, I want to learn some goddamn Chuck Berry music,’ – and he taught me.”, While Gregg muttered and cursed his way through Sea Breeze Senior High School, “Duane stayed at home in the woodshed and got very good. You’d have a relationship and even though it didn’t last very long — there were girls who were a lot of fun, of course — it would keep you going.”, One of the most memorable scenes in “Almost Famous” takes place at a house party thrown by teenagers in Topeka, Kansas. The night before I was to leave, Gregg Allman – still mourning the recent deaths of his legendary guitarist-brother Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley – had a late-night vision that the FBI could possibly be using me to investigate his band. It took four or five Sundays to hit the right note: the day of the Legendary Jacksonville Jam, as Trucks calls it, “We set up at Oakley’s house. Some writer once asked me how I wrote the song and Duane said, ‘Aww, he fucked some girl across a tombstone and that’s what it’s about’ Don’t’ you know that got printed in an instant. He just wrote a real bad article on us. I was pretty flattered.”. The day after Christmas, he picked up a hitchhiker…who murdered him. “That summer we went on the road as the Allman Joys. I couldn’t get it on in school worth a shit.”, In 1958, the family moved to Daytona Beach, Florida. Cameron Crowe's 'Almost Famous' was released 20 years ago today. “But if the band hadn’t made it, it would have fractured the structure of their identities.

I think he sunk about $150,000 in us. ‘Fuck this,’ he kept yelling. Furthermore, they hadn’t played enough to live audiences and it sounded stiff, like the tracks on the Liberty LPs. Their manager, Bill McKuen, was impressed. “I think,” says a close friend of the Brothers, “that Duane’s loss was much more traumatic than anyone realizes. Let’s don’t do it.’ He said, ‘C’mon, man, we’ll go to L.A. We’ll see all those pretty women and fine looking cars.’ What could I say? “See, Rick Hall wanted him to do a Hendrix power-trio thing. '”, Duane stayed in Jacksonville, hanging out at a club called the Scene and jamming with the Second Coming whose line-up included future Allman Band members: Berry Oakley on bass and lead guitarist Dicky Betts. Not long after the band cut the best-selling “Ramblin’ Man,” Berry Oakley’s motorcycle slammed into a Macon city bus. It was the first dead person I’d ever seen.”, The dead man in that sleazy room weighed on the brothers’ minds. The Allman Brothers were one of the biggest, best and hardest partying bands in America in 1973 when a 16-year-old Cameron Crowe joined them on tour that summer to write a Rolling Stone cover story. “He wasn’t really hot on doing the solo album,” Dicky Betts says. “Dickey seemed like a quiet guy with a huge amount of soul, possible danger and playful recklessness behind his eyes. Crowe's first cover story was on the Allman Brothers Band. “The night before he got killed,” says Red Dog, “Duane and I were talking. It sold a million singles, and Duane was invited to stay in Muscle Shoals and play with some of the finest musicians in the country. “Spoonful” – Dial Records, 1966, The Allman Joys, Hour Glass – Liberty Records, 1967, The Hour Glass, The Dynamic Clarence Carter – Atlantic Records, 1967, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Power of Love – Liberty Records, 1968, The Hour Glass, “Me & Bobby McGee” – regional label, 1969, The American Eagles (Chuck Leavell, Buck Wilkin, Johnny Weicker), Instant Groove – King Curtis, Atlantic Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, electric sitar, Southern Fried – John Hammond, Atlantic Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Ronnie Hawkins – Cotillion Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Boz Scaggs – Atlantic Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, The Allman Brothers Band – Capricorn Records, 1969, The Allman Brothers Band, Ton Ton Mascoute – Johnny Jenkins, Capricorn Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar; Berry Oakley: bass, Arthur Conley – Atlantic Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Percy Sledge – Atlantic Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Two Jews Blues – Barry Goldberg, Buddah Records, 1969, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Soul ’69 – Aretha Franklin, Atlantic Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, This Girl’s In Love With You – Aretha Franklin, Atlantic Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Morning in the Morning – Otis Rush, Cotillion Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Sundown – Sundown, Exit/Ampex Records, 1970, Chuck Leavell: piano, In Search of Food, Clothing, Shelter & Sex – Buck Wilkin, Buddah Records, 1970, Chuck Leavell: piano, Layla – Derek & the Dominoes, Atco Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, To Bonnie from Delaney – Delaney & Bonnie, Atco Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, The 31st of February – Vanguard Recording Society, 1970, The 31st of February (Scott Boyer, David Brown, Butch Trucks), Christmas and the Beads of Sweat – Laura Nyro, Columbia Records, 1970, Duane Allman: electric guitar, Idlewild South – Capricorn Records, 1970, The Allman Brothers Band, The First Great Rock Festival of the Seventies – Columbia Records, 1970, The Allman Brothers Band (“Statesboro Blues,” “Whippin’ Post”), Push Push – Herbie Mann, Embryo Records, 1970, Duane Allman: slide guitar, The Allman Brothers Band at the Fillmore East – Capricorn Records, 1971, The Allman Brothers Band, Motel Shot – Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Atco Records, 1971, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Spirit in the Dark – Aretha Franklin, Atlantic Records, 1971, Duane Allman: slide guitar, The Stories We Could Tell – The Everly Brothers, RCA Records, 1971, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Five’ll Getcha Ten – Cowboy, Capricorn Records, 1971, Duane Allman: dobro; Chuck Leavell” piano, Hawk – Ronnie Hawkins, Cotillion Records, 1971, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Hard And Heavy – Sam Samudio, Atlantic Records, 1971, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Dinnertime – Alex Taylor, Capricorn Records, 1971, Chuck Leavell: piano, The Best of Barry Goldberg – Buddah Records, 1972, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Eat A Peach – Capricorn Records, 1972, The Allman Brothers Band (Duane Allman appears posthumously on sides 2, 3 & 4), D & B Together – Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Columbia Records, 1972, Duane Allman: slide guitar, History of Eric Clapton – Atco Records, 1972, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Mar Y Sol – Atco Records, 1972, The Allman Brothers Band (“Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More”), Eric Clapton at His Best – Polydor Records, 1972, Duane Allman: slide guitar, An Anthology – Duane Allman, Capricorn Records, 1972, Duane & Gregg Allman – Bold Records, 1972, 31st of February (rehearsal session outtakes), Dialogues – Capricorn Records, 1972, Duane Allman interview, Beginnings – Atco Records, 1972, The Allman Brothers Band (repackage of Idlewild South and The Allman Brothers Band), Brothers And Sisters – Capricorn Records, 1973, The Allman Brothers Band (Berry Oakley appears posthumously on “Wasted Words” and “Ramblin’ Man”), The Hour Glass – United Artists Records, 1973, The Hour Glass (repackage of Hour Glass and Power of Love), Early Allman – Dial Records, 1973, The Allman Joys (Duane Allman, Gregg Allman, studio sessionmen), Clapton – Eric Clapton, Polydor Records, 1973, Duane Allman: slide guitar, Why Quit When You’re Losing – Cowboy, Capricorn Records, 1973, (repackage of Reach for the Sky and Five’ll Getcha Ten), Laid Back – Gregg Allman, Capricorn Records, 1973, Gregg Allman: organ, acoustic guitar & vocals; David Brown: bass; Scott Boyer: acoustic, electric & steel guitars, piano; Butch Trucks: cabasa; Chuck Leavell: piano & vibes; Jai Johanny Johanson: congas; Paul Hornsby: clavinet, organ; Johnny Sandlin: bass, Courtesy of Rolling Stone #149 – Compiled by Cameron Crowe and Faybeth Diamond – December 6, 1973.
