I have here with me the April 26/71 issue of ROCK with a
unique live photo of Duane playing slide on the front...I'm
wondering...was this the only Allman magazine cover while
Duane was still alive? At least on a national level...I'm sure
that there were regional rags which featured the Allmans
on the front page.
The story within was written by Bud Scoppa and was
centred around the ABB/Johnny Winter And/Elvin Bishop
bills at the Fillmore in NYC.

Musician magazine September /96 has him on the cover.
Also, Guitar Player has an article on him 10/93 but he is not on the cover.
I am sure folks will write in with others. I am just not a big magazine guy.

I was in Tokyo a week and half ago and saw Duane on the cover of a Guitar mag there..it was clearly an American mag (although written in Japanese) and I will be looking for it tonight at B & N after work. If I find it, I will post the name because it had some fantastic photos in it I have never seen before in addition to a great article about Southern Rock.

Masahiko, that is it! Is there an American version? Looked all over Barnes & Noble this week and couldn't find it.

I think there is no American version.
"Guitar Magazine" is published by japanese publisher called "Rittor Music", most of the contents are written by japanese musicians who are not known in USA.
About latest title, main program is 48 pages of issue about Allman Bros. and southern rocks.
There are some interviews done by japanese editor, includes interview for Kirk West, Derek Trucks and so on.

Thanks, Mashiko. I didn't buy it in Tokyo because:

A) I don't read Japanese;

B) I thought I could buy the American version in the US;

C) I spent all my money buying Japanese imports that are either out of print in the US, or are of inferior quality, such as: Dave Mason Certified Live; Derek and the Dominos Live In Concert; Keep Me Comin' by Jesse Ed Davis; 4 Springsteen titles-it's true about the Japanese imports putting the US versions to shame-the Wild and the Innocent sounds FANTASTIC; and Back Street Crawler by Paul Kossof.

Also saw Tower of Power at the Blue Note-man, can Rocco Prestia lay that bassline down. I never knew "What Is Hip?" was a TOP tune, although I did know Rocco played bass on the Mule's version.

Cool coincidence-Mike Finnigan, who played keyboards for Dave Mason on the Certified Live disc, was the keyboard player for TOP. Shook his hand after the show and he said, "HEY!" like I looked familiar or something. Maybe because I wasn't Asian? Anyway, great city. Can't wait to go back.

Rich,

Did you get to check out Nishi-Shinjuku? That place is crazy.

Made in Japan cd's are definitely superior in quality(they even do that obi thing with cd's), & their vinyls are well sought out as well.

Pretty surprising that Duane made the cover on a magazine in Japan. In the land of the rising sun, they are relatively unknown.......

Nick,

I was in Shinjuku a couple of times, but didn't make it there at night. Heard it is nuts. What part of Shinjuku is Nishi-Shinjuku? East or west? I would bet it is east....

We were near Roppongi when we went to the Blue Note-that is supposed to be the Hot Spot, at least with the younger folks...

I stayed in Akasaka three nights and the Ginza three nights. Even had an earthquake wake me up the last night I was there at 4:45 AM.

What a cool town and country. Can't wait to go back.

*Oh yeah, what does obi stand for? As in obi strip on CDs... *

Hmm...I believe an obi is sort of a "belt" used for kimonos. It's just a design gimmick used on cd's & books, describing/translating what the contents are.

Nishi is actually west, & higashi is east. I don't know if you rode the subway at all, but the station at Shinjuku drives me nuts with the number of exits they have. The reason I mentioned Nishi Shinjuku, is b/c it is the mecca of musical bootleggs. Like being in Amsterdam, & wondering how they get away with the insanity. I can swear some of the things probably come out of Jimmy Page's personal closet.

Seems like you were around some great areas-Ginza has great restaurants. I can't eat "ramen" or a good "gyoza" anywhere in the states. It's fun there...but the prices are absolutely ridiculous.

Speaking of magazines....... when I was in NEW ZEALAND a few years ago..... I came across HTN issues at a Border's. I was SHOCKED & quite fortunate, as it was the anniversary issue with the orginal line up on the cover. Didn't know the road went on forever to the land of the Kiwis.

So you're hooked on Deadwood, too? The place I'm staying in temporarily has HBO and I started getting into it the last few weeks. Doing a rush, catch-up job before the new season starts on Sunday. Saw 3 episodes tonight and another 3 tomorrow. Wow!
BTW, spent half a day tripping around Shinjuku in 91 and was amazed at all the boots!
What a place.

Great. I was in Nishi-Shinjuku and didn't know it and also completely missed the Boot stores. I knew Japan was a huge source but had no clue where to look.

I did ride the subway a lot (very easy to use-directions in both Japanese and English, both verbal and written) and did get off at the wrong stop in Shinjuku-wanted to get off in the west area to visit the Metorpolitan Building and take photos, but wound up getting off in east Shinjuku instead. I wandered around and found my way, though.

I was AMAZED at how many places to eat there are. There must be at least 20 places in one block in Akasaka, for example.

We chose where to eat by just walking around and whatever smelled the best, that's where we went. Found an awesome Korean barbecue place in the Ginza that way, and it was very resonable-only 5400 yen for dinner for two.

I read that in order to avoid going bankrupt eating in Tokyo you should eat a big lunch, or "set" lunch, and then eat a lighter dinner. But I found plenty of places that were reasonable, like yakitori places that were a lot of fun, too.

*Guitar Player Oct 1981*

If there is a back issue to get with Duane contents, this one is it. Great pics & great articles. Believe it or not, not much has been added to Duane's "story" since then, as much of what is written about him these days are a rehashed from older interviews & etc.

*We chose where to eat by just walking around and whatever smelled the best, that's where we went. Found an awesome Korean barbecue place in the Ginza that way, and it was very resonable-only 5400 yen for dinner for two. *

Rich, There has been a big influx of Korean pop culture in the past few years-it's like the younger pop culture between the two countries are merging.

Funny thing about the Japanese bootleg industry-when I was browsing around that area, I began to wonder what the likes of Mick, Keef, & Page would think about all this. I look up at the wall, & I see an an autographed pic of Jimmy Page at the store, smiling. I saw one of Slash too I think...... some of their loyal customers appear to be the artists themselves.

None of it makes any sense.
