Gregg Allman

If you wanna do yourself an enormous disservice, you could skip the considerable Allman Brothers Band chapter in music history – the irrefutable lifechangers (At Fillmore East, Eat a Peach), the faith-shaking tragedies (writing the 1973 Rolling Stone cover story about the band's blues-worthy backstory that inspired Cameron Crowe's lame-by-comparison Almost Famous) — and still get a pretty good idea of Gregg Allman, circa 2015, from the first track on his latest solo album. Exactly what it says it is, 2011's Low Country Blues (produced by T-Bone Burnett) opens with “Floating Bridge,” a cover of a Sleepy John Estes song predating WWII, in which the narrator falls from a bridge and drinks “a gallon of muddy water.” It also makes a fine super-hero origin story for Allman, the former shroom-chomping blond hippie kid who could've been a psych-rock also-ran but grew instead to be one of America's greatest remaining bluesmen.
