Throughout his career, sideman Rick Allen has played Hammond B3 organ with rock and blues legends. While still in high school, he was hired by Leon Russell’s guitarist Don Preston to play teen dances in East L.A. before moving up the ranks by playing the music he loved. Whether in the studio with Sonny Boy Williamson or Dr. John, in a Detroit lounge with Howlin' Wolf, or on cross-country tours with The Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, Loggins and Messina, Rod Stewart and Boz Skaggs, culminating in a gig at Madison Square Garden and his first visit to NYC, Rick has played every kind of venue and traveled many roads.
While still in his teens, Rick backed up The Coasters, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, The Penguins of “Earth Angel” fame, and Jimmy Clanton. A few years later, he played sessions for major label rock and blues artists in Los Angeles and New Orleans: Etta James, Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett, Ernie K-Doe (Mr. “Mother-In-Law”), Freddy Fender, King Floyd, Allen Toussaint and The Dukes of Dixieland on their Grammy-nominated album, Gloryland.
