Duane Allman was born in Nashville, Tennessee in November 1946. On
Christmas Day in 1960, Duane was given a motorcycle as a gift while
his younger brother, Gregg, got a guitar. A few months later, Duane
wrecked his motorcycle in an accident, but traded in the spare
parts for a guitar of his own. Within a year the duo played at sock
hops in Daytona Beach, Florida, calling themselves the Kings. In
1965 Duane and Gregg formed their band, the Allman Joys, and toured
the south, but they failed to make an impression in the music
business. Duane, Gregg and a few friends drifed to Los Angeles
where they formed a new band called Hourglass. After recording two
albums for Liberty Records, the Allmans returned to Florida where
they played with the bands Second Coming and The 31th of February.
Duane frequently travled to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and played
backup guitar with such great singers as Aretha Franklin, King
Curtis and Percy Sledge. In 1969, Duane got his first big break
when Jerry Wexler, the vice-president of Atlantic Records, offered
him a solo contract. Duane formed a new band which made up of
drummers Jai Johanny Johanson and Butch Trucks, guitarist Dickey
Betts, bassist Berry Oakley, and brother Gregg on the keyboard.
Once assembled the Allman Brothers Band settled in Macon, Georgia
where they joined Phil Walden's Capricorn Records for a recording
contract. The band's first album combined strains of blues, soul,
rock and country music into the electrifying sound that launched
Southern rock music. Their second album, "Idlewild South" climed to
the top of the charts where they performed at New York's Filimore
East in March 1971. The band recorded a double album released in
July that year and reached the top ten, but Duane did not live to
see his band's true success. On October 29, 1971, Duane Allman was
riding his motorcycle down Macon's main street when a truck pulled
out from another street in front of him. He lost control of his
bike trying to avoid a collision and crashed head on into the rig,
killing him almost immediately. He was 24 years old. The band
played at his funeral. Only a year later, they gathered somberly
again to bury Berry Oakley, who was killed in a motorcycle crash
just three blocks away from Duane's fatal accident.
