Tragically, both of these wonderful musicians and kindred spirits died WAY before their time.

Though their musical paths had yet to really cross, I'm sure the 2 of them would have been great friends, and brilliant collaborators.

I wonder what these 2 may have done together had they lived on... Stuff like "Mountain Jam" isn't too far fetched from "Third Stone From the Sun", and I can definitely see the 2 of them hooking up, much like Duane and Eric Clapton did.

Any guesses what may have happened?

Another cool hypothetical thread....it probably would have happened and it probably would have been incredible....but my feeble little mind couldn't even attempt to describe the nature of the music if those two would have gotten together...

There's a bit of a connection here.

They both knew Johnny Jenkins, if I am not mistaken. I've heard that Jimi learned much from the Macon southpaw (which Duane was as well, but didn't play that way).

I could imagine lots of soundscape music... Atmospheric and spacey...

The thought of it delights me until I realize that it was never to be...

Another connection is that it was Jimi who showed Duane the chords to Little Martha -- when Jimi turned on the faucet in a Holiday Inn hotel room and the music came out -- in a dream Duane had.

Didn't they also share the bill at one of the Atlanta Pop Festival shows?

Indeed they did -- probably the closest they ever came to sharing the same stage.

I wonder if they met back stage? Maybe they jammed for a bit behind the scenes?

That would have been immense!!!!

I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that the ABB was up for it, but Jimi was really strung out... would have been hyper-cool, that's for sure. Could've happened backstage or something.

There are few people who's music and who's person could have altered society...

Unfortunately, Duane and Jimi (2 of them) never really had a chance to see it through...

The Duane/Jimi thing could REALLY have broken some racial and musical barriers... I'm sure they would have drifted towards more R&B and jazz, and their paths would doubtless have crossed...

I would think so. Both Jimi and the Brothers were grounded in the blues, as were many bands of that era such as Derek & the Dominoes, Zeppelin, Johnny Winter, Ten Years After, the Stones, the J. Geils Band, John Mayall, the Butterfield Blues Band & who knows how many others. Their paths almost undoubtedly would have crossed at some point -- Jimi played with Leslie West, Stephen Stills, Dave Mason & others -- he was always up for a play, just as Duane was.
Yes, I could picture Jimi walking out on the stage a la J. Geils in Boston in 1971, with a grin on his face and launching into Killing Floor or the like.
Hendrix, Duane, Dickey & Les Brers in a blues jam -- fun to think about.[Edited on 10/25/2002 by Stephen]

Ec and Duane did little Wing shortly before Jimi's death. One would assume that JH would have been flattered and I'm sure that would have led to a JH & DA hook up. A cover of time Magazine '68 had Jimi with the caption, Black or White music? Jimi was great and his death shocked me at the time. Duane with out a doubt could hold his own with Jimi, but Jimi was one man band and Like Duane, one of kind. I listen to his stuff still today..

A little off-topic, but Paul McCartney was a huge fan (and freind) with Hendrix. Has anybody ever heard or read any comments he might have had about Wilson Picket's version of "Hey Jude"? That's one of my favorite Duane solos.[Edited on 10/28/2002 by Rusty]

Thom Doucette told me a story about Jimi and Duane meeting up at the old Fillmore West in San Francisco. He was with Duane the afternoon that the two of them jammed together on stage to an empty house. Don't remember any more details at the moment, but I've never forgotten the story.

That almost brings a tear to my eye. Like many other ABB moments, I'm sad I can't hear it, but it brings me a lot of joy to know that at least it happened...

Me too -- two brilliant musicians, taken from us as untimely as Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman were, with such common musical backgrounds of growing up listening to blues records -- having a little play together. I'd bet it was similar to when Duane and EC first met -- the description in the Anthology I booklet (I beLIEVE) of how it was a four-way conversation, with two voices talking and two guitars playing, talking about music etc.
Great story.
Like Mark, I listen to Jimi's music to this day, just as I do many bands from that era, which personally is my favorite era of rock music. It's the ABB that plays most often.

Thanks for the info, Hophead. (I say that a lot, don't I?) I also remember reading that the Brothers had a motor home they stayed in during the Atlanta Pop Festival, parked at the site. Seems to me there is a good chance Jimi might have stopped by for some fellowship

Never heard that Duane & Jimi actually crossed paths. Fillmore West? Maybe early 71'? Many of the pictures by Jim Marshall of Duane were taken around then.

Similarly, I just recently saw a photo of Jimi & Taj together, which I've never seen, or knew about before. It's cool to know that many of these folks actually crossed paths.

Perhaps the best guitar duo in history. Both would complement each other superbly. Both were brilliant & consistent guitar players who would dazzle audiences for hours.

Wow Hophead, you should write a book or something with all your great stories, its always a pleasure to hear from you man.

Finsky,
When I was lookin around on Etree today i saw a tape of Taj and Jimi, i dunno,i had never seen before, looked pretty cool.

back to the subject; I can definately hear some Jimi in Duane's playing, I bet they woulda had a relationship like EC and Duane, perhaps if they had more time they would have recorded togethger.........

the song that for some reason pops into my head when i think of a jimi and duane jam is
voodoo chile off of electric ladyland. the long 15 or 16 min blues jam with fantastic trade
off licks, the nice organ break in the middle, and if i listen hard enough i can hear a
stratospheric duane slide solo after jimi does the solo when he taps off with the whammy
bar. imagine if duane had showed up at the fillmore on new years eve 69/70 and gave a
helping hand to machine gun, that would be the basis on which guitar solos and jambands would now be founded.
hendrix, even though from seattle, had the soul of a southerner, much like clapton and keith richards. i'm sure that he and duane would have made fine music together.

One thing the two also had in "common" was the Beatles........Skydog covered 4 or 5 Fab Four tunes, but not the one that impressed Paul (publicly) as much. Apparently, just after the release of Sgt Peppers, Paul(?) went to a Hendrix performance, and Hendrix played the title track well enough to impress the cute one . I remember a posting or interview somewhere where Hendrix had just heard the tune and picked it up.

Cheers

Carlos

Carlos,
The story on that is that Sgt.Pepper was released on a Friday.That following Sunday,the Beatles went to the concert hall they owned (the name escapes me at the moment)to hear Jimi,and he opened with Sgt.Pepper's.He only had part of Friday and Saturday to lean the song.

Brian.
