The Allman Brothers song is indeed based on Hank Williams, though it's not exactly a cover. House of the Rising Sun isn't an original either (it's an old folk song), although the Animals did make it famous in popular culture.

I recommend that everyone look up Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant." Not only is it hilarious, but it is also a piece of American history.

I am so sad that only 15% knew Arlo Guthrie. He was the 18 y/o son of Woody Guthrie who was arrested for littering, the evidence was photos that were placed before a blind judge, he was found guilty, and that littering conviction keep him out of Vietnam. Then he wrote an 18-minute song about it that became a hit and it was turned into a movie in which the original arresting officer and judge played themselves. You can't make this stuff up. And he's still performing. Check him out.

Dagnabbit. I thought "Duane Allman", then thought no, it has to be the first name that starts with "a".

Seems odd to not accept just their first names if that's the part that starts with A.
