Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Gregg Allman

Gregg Allman covered Muddy Waters' "I Can't Be Satisfied" with his band during a Savannah, GA, studio session. The song is part of his fine "Low Country Blues" (2011) album. Read an interview with Allman on the album and his career here. "Can't Be Satisfied," by the way, is the title of Robert Gordon's excellent biography of Muddy Waters reviewed by the New York Times in 2002.

I like the way some of the more popular musicians who made their marks initially when much of their audience were in altered states of consciousness, have matured to becomes serious, accomplished musician, appreciated by serious fans who have matured in kind. Gregg Allman seems to be just one example. I admit that I was never a huge 'Brothers' fan until, that is, its fan base grew up. (Unfortunately, Duane had already died.) 'Low Country Blues' is an excellent album.

I've always liked the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead for their music, regardless of the mental state of many fans.
