YMMV: The Allman Brothers Band
  • Epic Riff - "Midnight Rider"; "Whipping Post"; "Jessica".
  • Fan Nickname: Duane is 'Skydog', named for his Badass Mustache and soaring solos when he was a session musician at FAME studios.
  • Face of the Band - Gregg today. Originally Duane shared the role.
  • Magnum Opus - Generally considered to be the Live Album At Fillmore East (also their commercial breakthrough), which is perhaps somewhat unusual.
  • Memetic Mutation - Before people shouted "Freebird!" as an in-joke at concerts, they shouted "Whipping Post!"
    • Legend had it that when a drunken concertgoer in Helsinki, Finland yelled for "Whipping Post" at a Frank Zappa concert, Zappa rehearsed and performed a rendition of the song mashed-up with "Montana", titled "Whipping Floss". The results can be found on You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 2. Zappa eventually did do proper covers of the song, which can be heard on Does Humor Belong in Music? (live) and Them or Us (studio).
  • Signature Song: "Ramblin' Man" and "Midnight Rider"
  • Too Cool to Live: Duane
