Duane Allman: A Legend speaks on life, Dickey Betts, and playing blues guitar.
Published by John Tuggle on August 25, 2008 under Blues Guitar


I recently discovered an audio interview with the legendary guitarist of the Allman Brothers, Duane Allman. In this interview, you can hear Duane speak candidly in an informal setting on Dickey Betts, creating the Allman Brothers Band, and about life in general. The young guitarist seemed to have a very determined attitude, and to me comes off as a real true fan of music. He was so young back then, but you can tell that all he really wanted to do was play some good music.

In the interview he talks about adding a 7th member to the Allman Brothers ,but I donít think that ever happened. I had never heard about that, and if you know more about it please comment about it.

He also talks candidly about playing with Otis Redding, which is really cool. Anyway, itís very inspiring to hear a true legend speak about the things he was passionate about. Duane Allman is an incredible guitarist, and knew the sound he was looking for when he put together the Allman Brothers Band. He will always be remembered for his slide guitar, but his regular guitar playing was fantastic as well! Just listen to Stormy Monday.

In the interview he mentions that he only hired players that were better than him, and said ďWell Iím the famous guitar player, but Dickey is the good one.Ē

Humility is a common trait among the most legendary guitarists, and I believe it is this attitude which truly rises them above the top. Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Duane Allman, Derek Trucks, and Eric Clapton are all verry humble guitar players. In every interview Iíve read or seen, they all talk as is they have so much to learn, which is what makes them so great.

Listen to the interview and give me your opinion of Duane, and what he has done for your guitar playing. I know without listening to Duane Allman, I would not be playing slide guitar. It was him that gave me the fire to practice and keep improving.

This is part of the interview that's been in the Media Gallery for a number of years. Too bad I haven't been able to get them to play for the last couple of years. Any help with this would be appreciated.

I'm not sure he says they played with Otis, just that they had a photo session on his farm.
