I know that many of you here have.

Not me!!

The records, CDs, and videos on Youtube can only give me a glimpse of what he was like live.

But what I have seen and heard are so awesome. How could someone so young have been so amazing??

I truly love all era's of the ABB. I grew up with the Dickey/Warren/Woody shows. They were mind blowing. But when I listen to any ABB show with Duane it is clear they are a step above.

He was one of a kind.

Duane lovers post here. Tell me about that time you saw the ABB with Duane!!

Tell me how his playing moved you!!

I saw him three times in 1971. Details later.

Moved? Beyond words! Again, details later, probably tomorrow.

Yep, in a local club Sept 70. And Berry once more Feb 72. They were great both times. I was lucky to see some amazing live shows in the late 60's and 70's by a variety of musicians that were truly mind-blowing ... all of it playing a large part in the life I've lived, who I am today.

I wasn't counting shows when I saw the original six play. I was at some kind of concert almost every night. I would guess I saw the original band 3 or 4 times.

First time I heard Jack with the ABB was when I was watching Farm Aid and they started Statesboro and it was like déjà vu. I was totally mesmerized. Jack is the closest to Duane I've heard

I've been a fan long enough, but my parents wouldn't let me go to any concerts at the age of 12 - 13 - dammit! I asked. They wouldn't even let me go with my brother who is 3 years older.

If the information age had started in 1970 or so a bunch more of us fans of the original 6 would have seen Duane and Berry live. Reading off the places relatively close to me like Buffalo or Detroit that the Duane era band played all these years later almost makes me cry.

I saw a 4+ hour show in late November of 73 at the Chicago stadium. I was 17 at the time and it was my first experience with brownies that night and I while my memory of all the details may be a bit sketchy there were several highlights I will never forget.
I do remember Dickey, Chuck and Lamar pretty much dominating the show. Gregg was kind of subdued and laying back but had a number of really nice moments singing. I distinctly remember there was an amazing 10-12 or so minute piano part in Mountain jam that transitioned into a Dickey virtuoso run that would make Duane or Jerry drop their jaw and MJ must have lasted 40-45 minutes. Another thing I clearly remember was Dickey, Chuck and Lamar were just through the roof on IMOER. Dickey did a jazzy extended lead that would make Django jealous. I also remember Dickey's slide playing that night was really fluid and spot on.

I am pretty sure back 2002 I had a conversation with Duane, I think it had something to do with these!

Two Stony Brook shows including 9-19-71. This one is still at the top of my list. Truly a peak experience (and without any artificial aids!). Amazing group, incredible performer. When it was over just floated out of the place.
