Mike Zito: It's All About The Allmans
Mike Zito's letter from America.
The Allman Brothers Band has played a major role in my life. We listened to At Fillmore East every day for a decade at the guitar shop where I worked. It was Cream, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix… The Allman Brothers. But there was something different about the sound, the dynamics of the band. Gregg’s voice is so silky and honest, he conveyed the stories with conviction and purity. The guitars are among the greatest in recorded history. Two drummers, driving bass, that big organ sound… These guys played together with energy and passion, melody and harmony.
