Allmans Still Stuck in Long '70s Jam

8/12/2008 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The ultimate '70s band wants to get paid 2008 money.

The Allman Brothers Band woke up and discovered the kids were buying their tunes online and -- what's this? -- using them as their ringtones, and now they want their share of the jack. They allege in a Federal lawsuit they're the victims of "digital exploitation" by UMG Recordings and say they're due $13 million.

Most of the world was simply relieved that Gregg, Jaimoe, and Butch are still kickin' around.

Of course they're due their share. Why not? This brings back so many memories. I grew up in the 70's and 80's. Allman Bros. had great music. Glad they are still around.

The ddays of Southern rock were the best. I'd like to see a comeback of this kind of music. It's much more sophisticated compared to what mind numbing crap is pushed out these days.

I guess it was time for the Allman Brothers to wake up and smell the coffee! Time for cash! Hope they get what is rightfully due them!
