CHARLIE DANIELS BAND: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Si guaganano una ottima popolarità negli anni settanta, la band capitanata da Charlie E. Daniels, polistrumentista e compositore ex dei Jaguars alla fine degli anni cinquanta. Nel 1967 collabora come sessionman a Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Peter Geger e altri ancora. Inoltre fa da produttore ai Youngbloods e scrive canzoni per altri. Poi nel 1972 forma un suo gruppo i Charlies Daniels Band, la loro musica è una miscela di bluegrass, contry rock, boogie e blues. Parallelamente fonda i Volunteer jam, una band si sessionman dove partecipano nomi illustri tra cui componenti degli Allman Brothers, e Marshall Tucker Band. Lostile è tipicamente suddista ma senza tralasciare le melodie o i ritmi di quel periodo rock.
