I can't recall exactly when I first heard the Allman Brothers Band, but I must have been in a pre-teen. I was hooked from the start. The double lead guitars of Duane and Dicky. The soulful vocals of Gregg. Damn! When Warren Haynes joined the band in 1989, it had a similar feel as the Duane Allman era, and continued through his tenure, especially when drummer Butch Trucks' nephew Derek Trucks joined the band. This wunderkind blew the doors off anything and everything in his path. And he did so with such a calm and soulful demeanor.

Now I'll admit, I have never seen the Allman Brothers perform live, nor any of the off-shoots. But I have dozens of ABB bootlegs, of which I cannot get enough. But tonight I have something really special to share.

Derek and wife Susan Tedeschi have not only married one another, but they have married their bands and fan bases as well for the Tedeschi/Trucks Band. And what a band! Tonight I have August 30, 2012 from Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. A perfect venue for one of the most soulful bands in the land. This is more than a jam band. If you are an ABB fan, or enjoy Delaney and Bonnie, then you are certain to enjoy the Hell out of this show. Susan Tedeschi's voice is to die for. And mixing that with the slide perfection of her husband Derek Trucks, along with pitch perfect backing vocals and one of the best rhythm sections in rock and soul, and you may just have one of the best touring bands in a generation.

I know you're going to dig this.



Stick around for my weekly music mix: Hell's Kitchen Radio, 8-10pm Pacific. My daughter, Little Lauson Hell will be joining me in our new studio. She's been doing shows with me since she was 7. Now she's almost 17. Where did the time go? What is she listening to now? What lies will she tell about her father? I do not like Foo Fighters, no matter what she tries to claim.
