46 years, dang

I sure love the music he left. This morning I was working in my office and had my music on shuffle. I was half paying attention when I heard a guitar solo on Crossroads that sounded awesome. I always associate the song with Clapton like I associate S. B. with Duane. The solo came from the Hourglass and young Duane's axe.

Still remember hearing IMOER on the radio that night; and the announcer saying that's in memory of Duane Allman. And I'm like "that's not the correct name."

Wow. I'm sure you felt that in your gut when you found out what the announcer meant. I'm sorry.

I'm 48 years old so obviously way too young to have felt the loss of Duane. As much as I fell in love with this band after their 1989 reunion (and dug deep into their early recordings), I can only imagine how personal this feels for those of you who were big fans back in 1971. What a loss.

That his guidance lasted until the final note the band played is telling. Alan Paul said one of things that struck him most was how close Duane was at all times to the guys and the decisions they made during the time he was covering the band.....decades later.

RIP Duane.

A truly sad day in both musical and ABB history. Duane's influences will be forever an inspiration and a revelation as to music that has come subsequent to his life. I will be grateful until my last breath. Thank you! I never was able to experience Duane live but was fortunate to catch on in 1969. Changed my life. Was enlightened to the blues early, in 1967. First show was Muddy and Butterfield. Duane's recognition of the music that came before him clearly influenced him to be the player that he was, who took that history and made it his own. We should all be grateful forever.

I when to see/hear the Allman Brothers in 1970 and discovered 6 young men who looked and acted just like my friends and me. Except they played instruments liked seasoned, experienced older men. Played with such power and energy and free form where each show the songs were colored differently expressing what a musician felt in his being at that moment within the context of the particular song. The solos Duane and Dickey play on Liz Reed on Fillmore had never been played exactly like that before and never again. We just think it was written that way because it's on the record. Gregg's organ would fall into predicted patterns but yet different as were his vocals. Berry was always different and what Butch and Jaimoe did was being created on the fly while staying within the boundaries of the song. Later they began to push that envelope and change up the tempo and even the structure of the song itself on pieces such as Whipping Post and Mountain Jam. Duane often lead the band through these musical doors, was the visible leader of the band, did most of the talking between songs etc. Some nights I remember Berry doing a lot of the stage banter and to a lesser extent Gregg. Dickey, Butch and Jaimoe never said a word at the shows I saw untill I saw them do Blue Sky and Dickey sang, tested his mic and yelled Thank You at the end.

So it was a big shock to hear they lost someone. Nobody called me. Guess none of my friends had heard PLUS I was at my mother's and wasn't home to answer my phone. My mother had fixed me breakfast and had The Today Show turned on so I was glancing at the TV and NBC reporter Frank Blair began doing the news and a couple stories in said " A member of the famed Allman Brothers Band was killed in a traffic accident yesterday. I ran and turned it up wondering which one!! Then Blair said guitarist Duane Allman died at the hospital etc etc. It was such a shock and blow. Since it was Duane, I thought...that's it. That band is over. They can't continue. Would be like The Rolling Stones saying they could continue after loosing Mick Jagger. But they played in my general area in January and I went. It was the 5 of them. They didn't look happy and were straight faced the entire show. Gregg said a few words including introducing Ain't Waisting Time No More as a song we just recorded for our new Warner Brothers recorded Eat A Peach coming out next month. No other talk the rest of night except Gregg said thank you at the end. But the 5 of them played with a lot of emotion and energy. When it wasn't a place where Duane would solo it sounded close to the original band. But Duane's great rhythm point/counter point guitar was missing and it stood out and diminished the band's sound to a degree. And to me, the ABB never again sounded as good as it did with Duane. Every later lineup had their hot streaks and came close as did the Warren, Woody early 90s line up. Jack and Dickey were smoking in 98 and Derek and Dickey got especially hot in 99. Warren and Derek was really kicking it through the mid 2000s. But none equaled the original. My theory was the original band were all about the same age and drugs and alcohol hadn't had time to hurt the guys much mentally and physically unless excess was ruining a specific night. I think us old guys could see that Gregg and Dickey were hit and miss by 2000. Of course Dickey was forced out in 2000 but from then forward Dickey and Gregg at a lesser degree just didn't have it working except here and there.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

https://www.biblica.com/bible/niv/habakkuk/3/


REMARK: That's what he is doing up there. He is the Director of the Stringed Instruments. There's something else you have not heard.

from Habbakuk Chapter 1:

3 God came from Teman,
the Holy One from Mount Paran

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_of_Paran

The desert of Paran is in Hejaz, Hejaz is the area around Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Moses said:
hese are the words Moses spoke to all Israel in the desert beyond the Jordan--that is, in the Arabah--opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Dizahab. (Deuteronomy 1:1)

He said: "The LORD came from Sinai and dawned over them from Seir; he shone forth from Mount Paran. He came with myriads of holy ones, from his right hand went a fiery law for them." (Deuteronomy 33:


REMARK: Sinai is the land between Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

God came from Teman.

Teman (Hebrew: &#1514;&#1497;&#1502;&#1503;&#8206;&#8206, was the name of an Edomite clan and of its eponym, according to the Bible[1] and an ancient biblical town of Arabia Petraea. The term is also traditionally applied to Yemenite Jews, and is used as the Hebrew name of Yemen. In the Book of Genesis, Genesis 36:15, the name Teman is referred to a son of Eliphaz, Esau's eldest son. Job's friend Eliphaz was a Temani (Job 2:11)

Yep, before they were Muslims, they were from the Hebrew tribes and settled in the Arabian lands, due to wars and persecution and being forced off their lands in Mesoptamia (Iraq and Syria). The Afghan talibs came from the Bani Israel tribe and also from the tribe of Benjamin.


This is the rest of the chapter in case you are interested.

https://www.biblica.com/bible/niv/habakkuk/1/

https://www.biblica.com/bible/niv/habakkuk/2/

And no I will not say Happy Hallows Eve, but I'll send out an early happy all Saint's Day which is tomorrow, because Duane most assuredly is NOT down there with the dark side entities in the abyss. He's radiant and full of light with his baby brother now in the orchestra.

Well pops you get more here than the College of Musical Knowledge, you get politics, prophecy too. That is what he is doing pops, he is directing the other musicians. I am not sure about Butch, since he was an atheist, I don't know where they go.
