Willie Nelson inducts Allman Brothers into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (January 12, 1995)

On January 12th, 1995, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hosted their 10th-annual induction ceremony at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The year’s class featured a number of universally-renowned performers including Al Green, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Martha and the Vandellas, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, and The Allman Brothers Band.

Willie Nelson had the honor of introducing the Allmans, and his speech was appropriately reverent. “When the Allman Brothers Band came up on the scene in 1969,” he said, “They created a whole new genre of music and their southern rock was an exciting fusion of rock, jazz country, and blues, and was reflective of the emergence of the new South. And like many of us in those days who came from the South, we grew up in an environment of music that included a bit of everything. Music was not confined to such rigid formats, and the Allman Brothers Band took what moved them and merged it into something unique that audiences love, a sound that redefined the direction of rock and roll and opened the doors to a spirit of experimentation that continues in today’s music. The Allman Brothers Band defined southern rock. They had tremendous influence on the many who followed in their footsteps, and they could be imitated, but never duplicated.”

Willie went on to speak about how the band hit the road “with a vengeance” to spread their southern rock gospel throughout the country, commend their perseverance in pushing through the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, and more.

After Willie’s speech, the band members made their way to the stage to accept their recognition and thank those who helped them. However, for Gregg Allman, this wasn’t a triumphant moment of reflection. Trapped in the throes of alcohol addiction, Allman was a shell of his normal self at the ceremony. When it was his turn to speak, a clearly-inebriated Gregg stepped to the microphone to thank “the greatest friend, brother, guitar player, and inspiration I’ve ever known, my brother, Duane,” adding that “He was always the first to face the fire. He was my greatest motivation.” Gregg did not thank anyone else (unlike most other inductees that evening, like Neil Young).
