Timeline Oct 29th 1971, on this day music legend Duane Allman die's while riding his motorcycle quite possibly one of the best slide guitar player's ever. I remember that sad day and a piece of my soul went with him. The Allmans were and still are one of my favorite band's although their last performance took place yesterday at the Beacon theater in NYC , They will play on in my mind forever.

My personal favorite the 1st 4 tracks on the Fillmore Deluxe reissue/2003 currently available here for free http://www.youtube.c...h?v=jdnjyalA87Y but really need to hear it on a stereo. Statesboro Blues->Done Somebody Wrong nothing finer anywhere
he also played on albums by Aretha, Wilson Pickett, Boz Skaggs
of course the Layla sessions check out Key to the Highway really need to turn it up for Duane's leads as Clapton is up too high. Duane was real understated and only pushed a single 50 watt Marshall as i understand it
His later heroes were the jazz horn players Coltrane and Miles
Ronnie van Zant would dedicate "Freebird" to him....
died at 24. unbelievable what he did at such a young age

Those were the days! Hearing that again reminds me that I've almost outlived my time. Don't worry though, age has given me patience---- all good things seem to get rediscovered. I'll plug that link in and listen all afternoon. Thank you.

I'll have to check, my sister inlaws brother was supposed to go to that concert yesterday, he's a huge Allman Brothers fan and hasn't missed a show in this area in 30 years !!!
