Wow, thanks for all the laughs! Don't let Derck see this, though, he might get pissed.

Well, under the column of "opinions are like a$$holes," I'll show you mine:

1. Duane was the greatest slide player - arguably.

2. and guitarist that ever lived on the face "of this lords "ground - not even close

3. Trucks is good but doesnt compare! - sure he compares, maybe not favorably, in your opinion, but the two can be compared . . . your writing skills with those of an illiterate 3r4d grader, for instance.

4. Duane was the king of Southern rock - I'm sure he'd be surprised to hear that.

5. second only to hendrix - Hendrix, Skynyrd, and Molly Hatchet, the holy trinity of Southern Rock.

6. Duane was the King,up there with Elvis,the Beatles ,the Stones. - neutral on this comment.

7. No one comes close and no one ever will - Lots come close, past present and future. Some surpass; past, present and future.

Duane was the first, the best of his era, THE reason I am not only a fan of the original line-up, but THE reason I play guitar....

Derek has long since passed him by.

On Live At Fillmore East what makes it such a great album is Dickey Betts and Duane Allmans guitar playing through out. What makes this version of the band so good is Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes guitar playing. Both are talented but both need the 2nd person in the band in order for them to reach there full potential

Duane Allman vs Derek Trucks

I think Derek will have to jab and move.
Derek is probably quicker but I'd have to give
the edge in power to Duane. If it goes past
6 rounds then I think Derek will win by decision.
But I'm going to go with Duane by TKO in the 3rd Round!

Derek Trucks is light years beyond Duane. Derek was playing Duane 's music when he was 12 years old. Derek Trucks is pushing the envelope with his music.

Well put.

Another question, is it really fair to put the Allman Brothers Band under the genre of Southern Rock? I even heard Dickey mention this in an interview in the early '90s.

No, I think up until Duane's passing, they were a solid Blues based band.

I'll only address the slide playing as I loved Duane's fingered playing much more than the slippery stuff.

Duane could be compared to Charlie Parker and Derek to Coltrane.

Duane brought the style into existence and set a standard by which all who followed must be judged. Both Duane and Charlie left before they completed their mission.

Derek's slide playing was formed by listening to and emulating Duane, as Trane was a Parker disciple. As Trane did with CP's thing, Derek has moved the Duane school to a higher plane, and is still at work.

Derek is more advanced now than Duane was (on slide) when he checked out. We'll always say "What if?" about Big D...

Happy to have the Derek Trucks Band. Long live the memory of Duane Allman.


Re: ABB as southern rock.

No.

Southern rock bands are those who copied the ABB, developed stereotypes, and exploited the latest fad...some good stuff here and there granted.

However, ask yourself who, out of all these groups, is still for real?

No. The Allmans are NOT southern rock as that term is understood.

guitarsan - What's the point in starting a debate then shouting down everyone who disagrees with you?

Anyway, you obviously have God on your side so you win!!!!

This post makes little sense to me. I am assuming we are talking about guitar playing, but then why are the Beatles, Stones, and Elvis mentioned. If we are talking hits or songwriting, Daune is not in there league. I do not know anyone, especially anyone with guitar knowledge who thinks the greatest guitar players are Rossington, Stills, and Clapton. Good, sure,but Best ever? Am I missing something? Is this a joke? Anyway, Duane brought some serious internsity to his playing and the band. But i don't get anything that really would make me thing of Duane being anything like the Beatles, Stones, or Elvis.

I'm voting for Dean as the author of this .
The Skynyrd references later on in the thread are red flagging it for me.
Carry on. . . . .
