Willie Perkins left the staid, conservative world of commercial bank auditing to jump headlong into the burgeoning beginnings of The Allman Brothers Band and follows their meteoric and sometimes tragic rise, fall, and revival. Perkins’s interest in the business of music and his association with an interesting pair of friends led him to the opportunity to work with the Allmans at the earliest stage of their career. We learn from a true insider what it was like to live the nomadic life on the road with the Allmans from their earliest low-buck club tours through the triumphant million-dollar months of outdoor stadium dates in the mid-seventies. Perkins vividly describes living in the band’s “Big House,” and what it was like to room on the road with the legendary Duane Allman and what a truly amazing person he was. The author tells of all the band and crew members, and shares how they all dealt with the bumpy road to rock stardom.
