Read full description of the books:



Very well-written biography of guitarist Duane Allman, and a good chronology of the Allman Brothers Band. I remember what an upset 13-year-old music fan I was when Duane was killed at age 24 in a motorcycle accident in 1971. The Allmans had closed the Fillmore East in June 1971 with an amazing set that was broadcast live on WNEW-FM and WPLJ-FM in NYC, and had played a live set at the WPLJ studio in August 1971. Duane's incredible virtuosity and passion, along with his transcendental and irridescent personality and musicianship, were just about to explode on the national rock music scene; the band's Live at Fillmore East album was released at the end of August 1971, and was getting lots of airplay on the local rock music radio stations. The Allman Brothers Band was booked to play 2 shows at NY's Carnegie Hall over the Thanksgiving holiday in November 1971, which would have been my first chance to see Duane in the flesh, but I couldn't attend since my folks wouldn't let me miss the holiday. Then Duane died only weeks before the scheduled gigs, and I thought that the band would cancel its appearances; the Allmans played Carnegie anyway, but my desire to see them was someone diminished. Wilson Pickett nicknamed Duane "Sky-man" on account of Duane's dabbling in psychedelics and his all-around driven, yet spacy, Southern-hippie, affect. Since Duane was also called "dog" by his buddies (apparently everyone in the Allman Bros Band had an "animal" nickname), the two monikers were combined into "Skydog," which stuck. Reading this book, you can almost feel the maniacal musical excitement generated when Duane led the Allman Bros, and there's no doubt why Lynard Skynard's tribute to Duane was entitled "Free Bird," a most apt appellation. Thankfully, the book is not a hagiography, but a warts-and-all recounting of a musical talent who left us all far too soon.
