Fun fact: The Band and The Allman Brothers Band were originally one group called "The The Allman Brothers Band Band." Their power was so great that a fellowship of 70s artists (Tom Petty, Neil Young, etc) was formed to split them asunder. Should they ever reunite, darkness will fall on Middle Earth...
