    Don't know who he is but, love the way he plays. Also is that an Alembic?

    That would be David Goldflies (one of many bassists that has been in The Allman Brothers) and he's playing an Alembic.

    This is when the ALLMAN bros were dominated by Dickie Betts and his country influence. Not my favorite period. Go back a little and listen to the original Allman bros with Duane Allman and Barry Oakley on bass. The album "Live at Fillmore East" will knock you out.

    Berry Oakley was one of the founding members of the band in 1969. He died in '72 by motorcycle accident. He was the soul of the band during the early years. He is a bass legend. Goldflies joined the band in '78 until '82. This link has the entire Allman Brothers lineup changes over the years http://ultimateclassicrock.com/allman-brothers-lineup-changes/
    The band has had some great rock bass players.

    Berry was IT, but I loved Goldflies' playing with the ABB. Alembic rules!

    Berry Oakley was a guitar player that went to bass just for the joy of playing with Duane Allman. Died soon after Duane. The original band was clearly the best IMHO. The complete Fillmore Concerts is one of the best releases of the last 10 years.

    A must have! Berry died inside when Brother Duane died, but left physically a year later. He was playing bass before he met Duane.

    The Second Coming with Berry and Dickey Betts: 68-69. Berry on bass.
