Duane Allman: Skydog: The Duane Allman Story
By Randy Poe



The long overdue biography of Duane Allman, the late Southern rock guitar virtuoso of The Allman Brothers, portrays the man’s talent and staggering accomplishments, particularly for someone who died before turning 25. Poe does a remarkable job at tapping sources close to Allman to accurately paint the guitarist’s life.

Duane and his brother Gregg bonded and worked closely to form one of Southern rock’s most influential acts. Aside from his work with his own band and the legendary Derek and the Dominos session that spawned “Layla,” Allman’s illustrious stint as a sideman for the venerated Muscle Shoals studio team found him working with the likes of Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett. Dispelling many preconceived notions about Southern rockers, Poe also explores Allman’s ardent love of jazz and musical exploration.

From humble beginnings to a tragic end, Duane’s spirit inspired everyone he encountered. Friends reveal that although the master of slide guitar made everything seem effortless, he actually worked painstakingly to achieve his brilliance.

ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons delivers a fond introductory recollection of his first meeting with Duane in New Orleans and speaks admiringly of his friend. Skydog closes discussing the aftermath of the musician’s untimely death and leaves the reader wondering what could have been had he not been killed in a tragic motorcycle accident.
