In the early 1960s, Gregg Allman got a guitar for Christmas and his brother Duane got a Harley 165 motorcycle. Eventually Duane traded the wrecked bike parts for a guitar and Gregg began to teach him. By 1961, the brothers were playing at teen dances around Daytona Beach, where they had lived since 1959. By 1963, they were in a band called "the House Rockers" before evolving into "The Allman Joys". The band toured bars in the South East and made their first single, a remake of "Spoonful" by Willie Dixon.. . . .
