I had a dream once where I was sitting at a big dinner table and I looked to my left and there was Duane a smilin'. All he said was "hi". Even in my dream it took me off guard but it was still the best dream I've ever had because I feel like I got to meet him. RIP brother.

Nice dream Justin. I wasn't around, when Duane Allman passed. Did a little research and it's a shame unexpected accidents take the life of talented people. They say there's a reason for everything.

On 29 October, in an effort to avoid a collision with a truck, Allman crashed his motor-cycle and died following three hours of intensive surgery. This tragic accident robbed music of one of its exceptional talents whose all-too-brief legacy reveals an individual of rare skill and humility.
RIP Duane...

RIP Duane...

I wasn't around while he was alive either but I grew up on the ABB and I can't hear one of their tunes without getting that warm fuzzy feeling. I've got an allbum called "Duane Allman Anthology". It's the songs of other artists that he played with. And there are a lot of them. I was surprised when I heard these songs that I've known for years but didn't know he played in. Great album and I reccomend it to any ABB fan.

Weird thing about his accident is that he was awake in the hospital and said he felt fine. I think even the doctors said he was going to be ok. Then he left us. Too bad.

Thanks for the reminder. Didn’t Barry Oakly (SP) their Bands Base player crash his Harley on Duane’s birthday exactly one year later? Maybe that is just a rock/urban legend or some things. Either way each time I hear Duane’s slide/bending makes me feel the Blues he is playing. R.I.P. Duane

Wow - I don't usually view the "In Memeory Of" forum, but this caught my eye. I thought that some of you might like to hear this.

In October of '91, I got invited by an ABC affiliate radio station to go down to Macon, Ga and to sing a candle light memorial gathering at the gravesight on the 20th anniversary of Duanne's passing on. (If any of you were there, it'd be great to hear from you.) They also brought down a killer flat top player from near Nashville and a guy on dobro from somewhere in Kentucky - both were 'sho 'nuff players. I recall that it was just cold enough to see your breath and that there was Peach Schnapps everywhere. It was some kind of experience to stand there in that grave yard, doing this acoustic gig, right there amongst the stones of Elisabeth Reed and the namesake of "Little Matha" ... also the big tomb where they shot the cover of their first album.

Duane rocked, and time sure does fly. The world lost a great guitarist but at least he'll remain young forever in our eyes. Rest in peace, brother

To be real honest ,,, i dont buy alot of music and i tend not to listen to it ,,,, when i do i typically just tune in a hot country station ..... today you will find the best lead players in the world playing in country bands ,, the same goes for harmony. This thead is a " in memory of forum" Maybe the mods can move this discussion over to a oh baby its cold out side ,, and its time to jam forum ......due to it looks like the ax grinders need a little space to pursue the topic ....I think i just "saw the ghost of elvis" ...... rat
