1. Just not a fan of bands who have a big confederate flag as backdrop. Goes for colleges, capitols,

people, Ted Nugent, etc.

Only had to watch 8 seconds of video to see that dang flag. Enough for me.

2. to hell with that flag

 

But, to hell with the 2015 confederate flag, back in the early 70's, I don't think that flag carried as much baggage.
So I'm giving old Ronnie a break, and yes, he was a god of southern rock, along with Dwayne.

Just like today.

7. Sorry man, I grew up among yahoos that admired that flag and the hatred that goes with it.

That's not what I like in musicians or anyone else. Apparently, it doesn't bother you.......

of Southern Rock and that is- Duane Allman. Amen.

22. I can't remember the names of any of the albums.

I know I loved Sweet Home Alabama and Free Bird. I think they were on the same album.

I had the Allman Brothers with Ramblin' Man....but I know I had others.

Wow, I reckon old age is a'creepin' in here lol, just drawing a blank.

I loved the Marshall Tucker Band too. "Can't You See" was and is a favorite.

36. I long ago had a falling-out with "Sweet Home Alabama"....

"Now Watergate does not bother me" was the first issue--I thought Nixon's abuses should've bothered everybody! Then the verse about Neil Young, criticizing "Southern Man," which was itself a critique of the civil-rights abuses of the South, just made my liberal blood boil. So when that one comes on the radio, I tune it elsewhere.

25. Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty

The southern rock of CCR and John Fogerty come straight from El Cerrito California. John was born in Berkeley California (not on a bayou).

27. truth. I love the CCR sound and it does have that certain southern rock quality to it

much like Buck Owens Bakersfield sound had a country quality to it.

28. And Green River was Putah Creek, when he summered as a kid.

Putah Creek really was green with slime in the summer until Lake Berryessa was built, and the cold water released from the bottom changed the whole dynamics of the creek, but John claims the name came from a pop-syrup label.

Green River Saloon, named after the song and overlooking the creek, was my drinking hole for a couple of years.

probably one of the most underappreciated players for his level of skill.

37. Nice video - it really gets the feel of the song,

and closely resembles the cover art on their albums.

Good to see some other DBT fans around here.

35. Freebird. The song that manages to smell like a shot of whiskey.

I actually like the song, mind you. Awesome guitar solo. But if I were to imagine it in some sort of tangible form, it would have to be the scent of whiskey squeezed into musical form.
