The allman brothers band - american university washington d.c. 12/13/70


In 1970 The Big House was rented from Day Realty for $225 a month by Linda Oakley, Berry Oakley 's wife. The house is near Capricorn Records , which was The Allman Brothers recording studio. Also near the house is H&H Restaurant , where the musicians were fed by Mama Louise when they could not afford to pay for food. The first tenants of the 18-room, 4,440-square-foot (412 m 2 ) home were Berry Oakley, his wife Linda, their daughter Brittany, Berry Oakley's sister Candy Oakley, Duane Allman , his wife Donna, their daughter Galadrielle, and Gregg Allman . Dickey Betts wrote " Blue Sky " in the living room and " Ramblin' Man " in the kitchen of the Big House. “Please Call Home”, “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More”, “Leave My Blues at Home” and “ Midnight Rider ” were also composed by Gregg Allman while living there. [2] After the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, the band fell apart and in January 1973 Linda Oakley was evicted from the Big House. Kirk and Kristen West bought the house in the summer of 1993 with intentions to open it as a bed and breakfast ; however, the needed renovations were too extensive. The house was left in the hands of the Big House Foundation, a non-profit organization established to turn the Big House into an interactive museum. [3]

The band reformed once more in 1989, releasing a string of new albums and touring heavily. A series of personnel changes in the late 1990s was capped by the departure of Betts. The group found stability during the 2000s with bassist Oteil Burbridge and guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks (the nephew of their drummer), and became renowned for their month-long string of shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre each spring. The band retired for good in 2014 with the departure of the aforementioned members. Gregg Allman died from complications arising from liver cancer in May 2017. The band has been awarded seven gold and four platinum albums, [2] and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Rolling Stone ranked them 52nd on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004. [3]
