American Southern Rock

By 1974 or so I started to listen to the bands that came out of the southern american states. Primarily this was Lynyrd Skynyrd but was later to include the Allman Brothers, Tom Petty and ZZ Top.

Memory is a bit hazy as regards what was my first exposure to this genre. I do know that Duane Allman played with Derek & The Dominos however as a band I think I must go for Skynyrds “Freebird”. What a song and what a guitar solo! Due to the amount of airplay it gets it has become a bit of an albatross around their necks but back in the day when I first heard it I was completely knocked out.
