Okay, I'll be the first to admit that this probably falls into the unseamly category of shameless self-promotion, but I've gotta share this with you guys. Hope you dig it:

Nice article. Thanks.

Brother Randy,
You've certainly earned the right to "shameless self-promotion"....thanks for the link! And I can't say this enough to you, thanks for a great book!

Randy, Thanx and no worries, "Shameless self-promotion" or not, I for one, can't get enough info on the all too short life of Duane Allman. Please, keep it coming.

Hey Randy,

Just picked up the new edition of "Skydog" at my local B&N last week. Good read, nice work.

Btw, while I was at B&N, saw the new edition of Vintage Guitar was out and in this edition was a story about Duane's Les Paul that he used on the Layla Sessions. I tried to go the Vintage Guitar on-line site and see if they had the article posted there, but they didn't other than this

quote:
THE DUANE ALLMAN “LAYLA” GUITAR?
A ’57 Gibson Les Paul Emerges To Tell a Story

Taken in trade by a music store in Florida, it was sold to a local recording studio in 1977. Shortly afterward, its new owner started to wonder if maybe it wasn’t much more than just another Les Paul. By Ward Meeker


Anyway, it was a good story about what happen to it, as it was somewhat lost for a number of years. Get the chance check the story out. I can only imagine what the guy must have felt when he realized "who" the guitar used to belong to, and history behind it.

Randy,

Glad to see the exposure for your work. Had another question about "myths" since you debunked a number in the Gibson article. In re to the Peach story, Rick Hall says a little bit different on the CMT ABB show. Hall attributes it to a "two legged peach". Any veracity in that, or was Butch being considerate?

Cheers

I was a fan from their very first record. I got to see them live in Kansas City and other places during the early 1970s. In fact, I once quit a job because the foreman wouldn’t let me leave early enough to make it to the ABB show on time. A man’s got to keep his priorities in order!




Was this the show at Royals Stadium 1974 ...or did I miss them at an earlier date in Kansas City ?

As always, thanks for all the kind words.

Carlos, as far as that "two-legged peach" comment from Rick Hall is concerned, I suppose Duane's quote about eating a peach for peace when he was in Georgia could be interpreted more than one way. The man did have a sense of humor, so Rick might be closer to the truth than those who thought Duane was quoting t.s. elliot. As with everything else in the book, I chose to just tell the facts as best I could and let others decide to read between the lines if they so desired.

Haisija, that was, in fact, the show at Kansas City Royals Stadium in 1974. That was me sitting on the pitcher's mound. I'm also the guy who commented on the show in the "tour dates" database. The opening act is listed as the Marshall Tucker Band. As it turned out, one of the Caldwell brothers was in a car wreck and broke his leg on the way to the airport, so the opening act ended up being John Hammond, Jr. And as talented as John Hammond, Jr. is, he wasn't received warmly that night. Folks had come to hear Marshall Tucker - and he was about as far away from Marshall Tucker as you could get.

I think he might have made it through four songs - probably about 20 minutes or so - before the crowd made it clear that they were ready for the ABB. I still remember Bill Graham coming out on stage and telling the crowd that they should've been more appreciative of John Hammond, Jr. - except that he didn't say it quite that politely.

One of the good things that came out of that evening is that the ABB ended up playing for what seems like around 3 hours or more. It was an incredibly long show - and everybody was eating it up. I do remember that they didn't play "Ramblin' Man," even though it had just been a huge hit. I still remember that night very clearly. Can't believe it was 34 years ago!

Best,
Randy

Since you're out here posting, Randy, just wanted to mention that your Skydog was recently mentioned in our local city magazine on list of recommended fall music reading!

Thanks, Randy, and great book. Both Allman brothers seem to have enjoyed creating or furthering myths over the years. A legend or two never hurt a musician.

Did anyone ever really pick up a guitar and "play like a virtuoso"? I don't think so. That is, imho, a discouraging myth. I think most guitar players, like most people really good at anything, will tell you when they're not promoting their own myths that being a virtuoso is 90% work and 10% talent. If you pick up a guitar and it feels like a foreign object, don't worry, it probably did to Clapton, Allman, Hendrix, etc. Keep at it.
