Number 49:  "Second Chance"  .38 special

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/cRkaPdfjzEk?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/cRkaPdfjzEk?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

I'm seeing an issue with this list. 

How in the world can this song (while a fine song that it is) fit into the genre of "Southern Rock?"

from "The Days of Love & Blood"  Robert Nix

Quote
After touring England and most of the continent of Europe, I returned to Jacksonville. The Classics IV, The Bitter Ind., The Second Coming, future members of The Atlanta Rhythm Section and several other rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Molly Hatchet Band were beginning to eat, sleep and drink rock 'n roll. Other bands like Blackfoot would soon follow. Southern rock was in the womb and Jacksonville was the mother.

Later, I was in Jacksonville to discover Gregg, Duane and company were crashing above the R&R Liquor Store on Main Street. It was a funky old apartment with nothing but mattresses and music. This was the real beginnings of Southern Rock.


Robert Nix grew up in Jacksonville and graduated from Paxon High School in 1962

Robert Nix, 67: Original Atlanta Rhythm Section drummer

 By Michelle E. Shaw

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Although he left Atlanta in the 1980s, the beat went on for Robert Nix, the first drummer of the Atlanta Rhythm Section, a Southern rock band that had a number of hit records in the 1970s.

Over the past three decades, Mr. Nix continued to make music and enjoy life, friends and family said.

“We were working on several things,” said Alison Heafner Nix, his wife. “He never stopped working. The music never stopped.”

In the 1970s Mr. Nix was more than the drummer of ARS, said friend Buddy Buie of Eufaula, Ala. He co-wrote several ARS songs with Mr. Buie, and proved to be a great collaborator.

“We wrote a lot of hits, ‘So Into You’ and ‘Imaginary Lover’ just to name two,” said Mr. Buie who was the band’s producer and principal songwriter.

  "What I remember about the Allman Brothers is right there in Jacksonville, Florida.  They used to come down to a place call The Forest Inn on a Sunday afternoon or something like that.  They would actually just bring their trucks right up there, unload the equipment, set it right outside, and just start jamming.  They would get out there and jam for three or four hours.  They didn't charge a penny."  Donnie Van Zant, .38 Special

The Forest Inn, 1436 Lake Shore Blvd. Leveled in 1972.

The Allman Joys "Spoonful"

<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/o0e5eeDdrBg" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/o0e5eeDdrBg</a>

The Allman Joys was an early band with Duane and Gregg Allman fronting.[1] It was originally the Escorts, but it eventually evolved into the Allman Joys. Duane Allman quit high school to spend his days at home practicing guitar. They auditioned for Bob Dylan's producer, Bob Johnston, at Columbia Records, backing a girl trio called The Sandpipers.[2] Eventually, they went on to form Hour Glass and then the Allman Brothers Band.

From the back of the Early Allman compilation (Allman Joys - Early Allman):

"One quiet Nashville evening back in '66, songwriter John D. Loudermilk walked into a small club called the Briar Patch. Up on the bandstand was what looked like just another of the thousands of teen age rock bands of the era. When they started to play, Loudermilk could tell they weren't so typical after all. The two front men were both blond and very intense. One played a trebly, stinging slide guitar; the other sang in an anguished, world-weary voice. John D. wondered how it was that these two looked so young yet played with so much experience. Needless to say, he was very interested in the group, which called themselves the Allman Joys. Allman was the surname of the two blond brothers, Duane and Gregg, who led the band. Although he'd never produced before, Loudermilk decided to take the group into the studio and cut some sides on them.
One of the Allman Joys' sides, "Spoonful," was released locally and sold well. But Loudermilk had already decided to concentrate on song writing, so he brought the group to Buddy Killen, head of Dial Records. Killen thought the group was quite good, so he had John Hurley take them into the studio to record more tunes.
'They were really way ahead of their times, I realize now," Killen says. 'Nobody really understood what Duane and Gregg were all about at the time. Eventually I gave them their release and they went to California, leaving these tapes behind.' Duane and Gregg Allman went on to form Hour Glass and the Allman Brothers Band."

Note: Loudermilk's memory is slightly inaccurate, since Duane did not learn to play slide guitar until the Hour Glass, a couple of years later.

SwampDaWamp is one of the most exciting new southern rock bands around. Since 2007 released, hard rockin’ self-titled debut album, they have garnered much critical acclaim and expanded their international fan base to cover all walks of life. Close to 20 000 fans on Myspace have already seen the future of southern rock and I suggest for you to do the same.

The brain-child of singer-songwriter-guitarist Gig Michaels, North Caroline's SwampDaWamp is the powerful and creative collaboration of six talented and seasoned musicians: Gig Michaels (lead vocals & acoustic guitar); David Lee (drums); Michael Hough (guitar & vocals); Keith Inman (guitar); Mike Huffman (keyboards, B3 & vocals); and Cody Bennett (bass). Together they have created unique, feel-good SwampDaWamp sound that shows wide appreciation to their musical roots.

As born and raised southerners, SwampDaWamp writes whiskey fuelled songs about backyard barbeques, NASCAR, and everything that makes up a culture born and raised in the south. All in all, both, their debut and 2.0 EP, are infectious blend of rock and blues with good dose of southern flavour, topped with Gig Michaels' powerful, gravely voice.

SwampDaWamp can be seen on tour all across United States with artists like The Marshall Tucker Band, and The Kentucky Headhunters, and are well known for their free-spirited, sing-and-dance-along live shows.

On the heels of their successful 2.0 EP, year 2009 saw the release of much-anticipated follow-up, Rock This Country. From the rockin’ opening track “Lady” to the “American Man”, a patriotic anthem for hard-working everyday heroes, Swampdawamp delivers twelve new exciting tunes with great love and passion for the country they are blessed to live in and say in their music, singing proud and saying it loud!

Puresouthernrock.com had a change to interview Gig Michaels and Keith Inman earlier in 2009, so be sure to check out our interview with Swampdawamp as well as our review of Rock This Country.
