Thanx to Donnah for Posting this first. I'm just reprising a small portion.

Twiggs Lyndon
This was in 1969 at Muscle Shoals. "There was Duane playing, and Berry Oakley on bass, Paul Hornsby was playing guitar, and Johnny Sandlin was playing drums. They jammed for what was probably ten or fifteen minutes, but it seemed longer.
"I had been in the music business for five years, and I'd heard some fine music. I'd heard Jimi Hendrix playing with Little Richard, and Hendrix was almost as good then as he was later. And while I sat in that studio in Muscle Shoals, I thought to myself, if all the headaches and all the problems I had had to go through as a road manager with all those bands for five years were the dues I had to pay to bring me to that studio for that moment in time, to hear this fellow Duane Allman play guitar for this one jam, it would've been worth it.
And if Phil Walden had walked in right then, as a spokesman for Fate, and said, okay Twiggs, back on the road for another five years with Percy Sledge and Little Richard, and after that I'll let you come back and you can hear him play again -- I would have gone right out that studio and done another five years. That was the thought that went through my mind."
