Duane was the real epitome of free spirit in the southern music scene. The story goes that he asked the recording studio owner if he can just put his tent up outside, and maybe come play once in a while, it's ok, no need to pay him. And he played. Boy, did he play. He was southern rock. And that was just the beginning of the road. A short road for him, as it usually happens with this kind of people, but it was a good one. An interesting one.
And it started in that parking lot, a tent, and a slide guitar screaming under a big mustached smile. He always had those strange lines, a blues toned down , jazz blues up, rock in a gentle stroke, country jazzed up, it is so hard to put the finger on it. Lucky thing is that you have these six minute solos so you have a lot of time to try…
Or, you can just enjoy it for what it really is . Allman brothers music.
