Winner: The Allman Brothers
Derf Backderf: A pencil to poke out my eardrums.
Mitchell W Feldstein: lynyrd skyyrd.......one of the best live bands i ever saw(original version) i saw them live before the song free bird had been released or it just had been. no one there had heard it. when they played it the place went bonkers......ronnie van zandt great singer and songwriter
Robin McDonald: Allman Bros! I went through 2 vinyl copies of Live at the Fillmore East before it came out on cd.
Heather Henninger: Skynard, but I don't wanna have to listen to either of them, ever.
Robert Sherwood: Skynyrd because of that riff from Workin for the MCA and On the Hunt. Marshall Tucker because of the flute.
John M Bachman: allman brothers birthed the jam band..Skynard all the way
Bruce Lilly: Nothing was worse than playing somewhere hearing " Freebird" over and over from the crowd
Gary Kachadourian: Genius execution of a bad concept versus perfect craftsmanship of a bad concept. In this case I think the perfect craftsmanship is easier to listen to but the beginning of Whipping Post is great until the words start.
Adam Robinson: Southern Fried Don't Give A Shit.
Patrick Smith: I'm amazed at all the Allman Bros votes. I think Skynyrd doesn't get the credit they deserve. And the Allmans remind me of a skunkweed and Schlitz headache on a really hot day.
