RIP Dickey Betts of the Allman Brothers

Forrest Richard Betts: 12 December 1943 – 18 April 2024

The Allman Brothers helped to define Southern Rock of the '70s, together with Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet and more.

After Duane Allman died in a motorcycle crash, Dickey Betts moved into the role of lead songwriter for the band. He wrote the following song, which is probably the largest commercial success that band had.

This song is "Ramblin' Man" by The Allman Brothers Band from the 1973 album Brothers and Sisters. It was written by Betts.
