Just two days later, on September 9, Devon accepted the key to the city of Macon at the historic Big House Museum on his father’s behalf. The Mayor proclaimed December 8th Gregg Allman Day.

A series of lengthy accomplishments have entitled Devon to take his own place in the Southern Rock pantheon.

His remarkable resume spans almost two decades, from his post-millennial breakout with Honeytribe, and the widely revered super group Royal Southern BrotherhoodDevonhas also had occasion to jam with the greats such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Mr. Les PaulKeith UrbanGov’t Mule and Lynyrd Skynyrd just to name a few.

Devon Allman  Q&A “September 2018 UK Tour” June 2018

  1. What’s the best gig that you’ve been to in the last five years, or has inspired you the most? David Gilmour in Chicago …holy s**t. How the hell he got his tone to sound just like the records in a basketball arena is beyond me. It was quite literally a master class in feel. His tone was liquid, ethereal, velvety… I was mystified from the first note.
  1. What is your favourite part of touring and what is your least favourite part of it?

I love making people happy for 2 hours a night. I get to lead them through a break from the world and that feeds my soul ….that is why I do it. Least favourite is I miss my son, siblings and loved ones and it’s hard to find fresh veg juice.

  1. What’s your favourite UK venue so far, and why do you like it so much? Can you share

some memories about this venue? Royal Albert Hall because it’s the bollocks. It was an honour to play there a few years ago with Royal Southern Brotherhood.

  1. Do you have a pre-show ritual? If so what is it?

I have my cats make a circle. We give to thanks to the universe, we ask for the groovies to align, to watch over our families. I slap my ribs to get the adrenaline going and I usually tell the cats to “take your pisses and text your bitches” …and that’s tongue and cheek and said lovingly….so pipe down feminists.

  1. How do like to relax on a day off during a tour?

That’s for me to know and you to wonder about.

  1. Are there any up-and-coming bands out there that you really like? If so who are they?

F**k yes I love Caroline Rose, Jason Isbell, The Record Company …so many more …There’s great great s**t out there if you dig.

  1. How do you prepare yourself for a tour?

Smoothies, hang with my son, play lots of heavy metal on vinyl.

  1. What can we look forward to on the tour?

It’s a great show. We have tweaked it and it’s got great flow. I love every member of my band and every song we play. It’s a trip down my career and we play at least a song off of every record of mine and then Duane Betts comes out and we tip our hat to our dads’ catalogue and even some tributes to the heroes we have lost recently like Tom Petty and Prince.

  1. Your special guest is Duane Betts. Are there going to be any more special guests?

Stay tuned …because you know that s**t is happening.

10. You have been touring the Devon Allman Project all over the world. Any favourite places

so far and any stories you can share with us? I love Italy, Australia, Norway, really anywhere that has people ready to throw down and good electricity. As for the stories ….wait for my book, it’s gonna be a good book.
