Readers' Rock List: Jam Bands


Last week, to celebrate Phish, the Dead and the Allman Brothers all announcing tour dates, we asked our readers to tell us their favorite jam bands. We turned on A Live One and counted the votes, and the winner by the narrowest of margins were the creators of the "Mountain Jam," "Whipping Post" and other half-hour masterpieces, the Allman Brothers. The Georgia boys beat out the favored Grateful Dead and Phish to claim the crown as the Readers' Favorite Jam Band. Where did jam-prone acts like My Morning Jacket, Led Zeppelin and the Disco Biscuits land? Check out the whole list below:
