* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Averted; though Dickey Betts filled in for Duane after his death, he never occupied the same prominence and didn't take over all his duties.

When Chuck Leavell was in the band as a second keyboard player, Gregg would occasionally play as a second guitarist onstage, but like Dickey, he didn't take on all of Duane's parts and never really emulated Duane's appearance either (preferring a clean shaven look through most of the band's first decade).

* UncommonTime: The EpicRiff from "Whipping Post" is in 11/4. Gregg Allman wasn't actually thinking about the time signature when he wrote it, just [[RuleOfCool whether it sounded cool]]. Duane had to explain to him what 11/4 was.

** Also on their first album, "Black Hearted Woman" starts in 7/8, then spends most of its time in 4/4, then back to brief reprises of 7/8 and 4/4, and finally ending in a 12/8 fadeout. Definitely an unusual rhythmic progression for a Southern blues-rock song.

Though the faces in the band changed over the years, The Allman Brothers always delivered strong southern rock, heavily influenced by the blues. The band recently celebrated its 40th anniversary and is still active and touring today. Their associated acts include Gov't Mule (Warren Haynes' band) and The Derek Trucks Band / Tedeschi Trucks Band (the former focusing more on World Music and African influences, while the latter is slightly more bluesy and allows the [[CreatorCouple married Tedeschi and Trucks to tour together]].) Their notable songs include "Ramblin' Man" and "Midnight Rider," among others.

The group announced their separation at the end of 2014.

* RealSongThemeTune: "Jessica" is now the theme for ''Series/TopGear''''Series/TopGear''.
* RealityIsUnrealistic: Much of their history reads like "What if Creator/WilliamFaulkner wrote a novel about a rock band?" But some details are so wild they'd be slammed by critics for being way too contrived if they were part of a fictional story.
** The band regularly hangs out in a cemetery. Within a few years two of their members would be buried there.
** Berry Oakley dies in an almost identical motorcycle accident a little over a year after Duane Allman, just three blocks away.
** Oakley's replacement Lamar Williams, and Allen Woody, who played bass in the reunited band in TheNineties, also suffer untimely deaths.
** Duane plays guitar on "[[Music/DerekAndTheDominos Layla]]". After his death keyboardist Chuck Leavell joins the band. Then when Music/EricClapton has a hit with his UnpluggedVersion of the song, Leavell plays piano on it.

** "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" (allegedly) was written after Dickey Betts noticed a headstone at a cemetery the band used as a rehearsal spot. [[HarsherInHindsight Duane Allman and Berry Oakley would later be buried in the same cemetery grounds]].

* CallBack: The coda of "Jessica" is similar to the opening of "Les Brers in A Minor".

* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''At Fillmore East'' was originally released as 2 [=LPs=], the first containing blues covers and the second containing original pieces. Had the band had their way, it would have been a Distinct Triple Album with "Mountain Jam" on the third LP, which simultaneously credits Donovan Leitch (who wrote the original song "First There Is a Mountain") and each of the members of the Allman Brothers Band (who transformed Donovan's theme into their own piece).

"Les Brers in A Minor" is a nine-minute instrumental piece and "High Falls" are rare examples of ''instrumentals'' that start out with about three one. They're both lengthy pieces ("Les Brers" is nine minutes, "High Falls" is fourteen) with a few minutes of progressively epic false starts before the song actually gets going.



* LoopedLyrics: "Revival". After a single verse, the rest of the song is just repeated variations of "People can you feel it? Love is everywhere."

* RepurposedPopSong: One of the more awkward examples. In TheNineties Red Lobster used a rewritten version of "Revival" in a commercial, changing "Love is everywhere" to "Lobster's everywhere."
