CCR is a California band, not "Southern rock"...

I think as far as popularity, Skynyrd takes the cake by a long mile.

Assuming we're talking bands that play southern rock, I'd say 'The Band' and 'JJ Cale'

I can't believe nobody's mentioned Molly Hatchet, they're about as southern rock as you can get! Maybe not "the greatest" but they are one of the best! God damn if they don't jam!!!

Cale is from Oklahoma City and is probably best known for writing a couple tunes Clapton made famous, "Cocaine" and "After Midnight." Although Cale's best stuff has rarely been heard on the radio, he does have one of the finer catalogs of original Southern blues/rock.

 

The Band is actually considered to be Canadian, and was inducted into the Canadian Rock & Roll Hall of Fame several years before they got into the American R&R HOF, This band could bring it when they were on.

 

I had the great pleasure of attending their last show, The Last Waltz, in 1976. I was relatively young at the time (20) and certainly didn't appreciate the significance of the event or of all the musicians who played that gig. I still watch "The Last Waltz" to this day and try to comprehend that some 37 years ago I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to see that show.

Preach it! DBT is playing a two night stand at Ziggy's in Winston-Salem at the end of June. Mike Cooley is playing solo shows in Charlotte, Chapel Hill and Asheville (?).

His early stuff was good, then he got all racist and pathetic. Can't stand him now.

Skynard and Allman brothers are so close. That guitar player put skynsrd there. Shit like "gimme back my bullets" still makes me get chills. Duane was certainly amazing as well.
