Duane Allman Portrait, illustrated here in his hotel room in Spartanburg, SC on October 17, 1970 with his rare 1940’s Gibson Kalamazoo KGN-12 acoustic guitar, age 23.
Allman was an American rock guitarist, session musician, and founder and leader of the Allman Brothers Band.
He is still referred to by his nickname “Skydog”.
The Allman Brothers Band were formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969, and achieved its greatest success in the early 1970s. Allman is best remembered for his brief but influential tenure in the band and in particular for his expressive slide guitar playing and inventive improvisational skills.
As Allman’s distinctive electric bottleneck sound began to mature, it evolved into the musical voice of what would come to be known as Southern Rock, being picked up by other slide guitarists, including his bandmate Dickey Betts (after Allman’s death), Rory Gallagher, Derek Trucks, Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Joe Walsh. Duane also taught a young Don Felder to play slide.
In 2003, he was ranked number 2 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
On October 29, 1971, while the band was on a break from touring and recording, Allman was riding his Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle at high speed on Hillcrest Avenue, in the western part of Macon. As he approached Bartlett Street, a flatbed boom truck stopped suddenly in the intersection, forcing him to swerve sharply.
He struck either the back of the truck or the ball on the crane and was thrown from the motorcycle, which landed on top of him and skidded another 90 feet with him pinned underneath it, crushing his internal organs. He was alive when he was taken to a hospital, but died several hours later from massive internal injuries.
He was 24.
