Gregg Allman knows a thing or two about the blues. Whether it's with the legendary group that bears his surname, The Allman Brothers Band, or as a solo artist (he's just released one of his finest works yet, the T Bone Burnett-produced Low Country Blues), Allman has never strayed from that supernatural site musicians have come to call 'the crossroads.'
Currently gearing up for what has become a beloved spring tradition, The Allman Brothers Band's residency at New York City's Beacon Theatre (a 13-night stand that is sure to feature a host of special guests), Allman checked his iPod to run down his top 10 favorite blues performances of all time.
"There's so many great artists, songs and performances that have affected me throughout my life," he says. "These ones, though, I'd put them right at the top."
