Remembering Duane Allman today on his 66 birthday.
Duane needs to be seen in the proper perspective, he had only been playing the slide guitar for about 2 years when he recorded this track at The Fillmore East. Duane was Influenced by Taj Mahal's slide playing and it's boldly apparent that he was gifted.
Happy Birthday Duane!
