That's part of a quote from Duane Allman from an interview shortly before he died in an awful motorcycle crash on this date in 1971, 3 weeks before his 25th birthday.  A flat-bed pulled into an intersection in front of him in Macon, Georgia causing a high speed swerve that flipped him, and caused his bike to land on him crushing his insides.  It left us to only imagine what could have been...

Duane Allman was one of the best slide guitar players that ever played.  He and Eric Clapton were closer than most brothers and learned a lot from each other, and yet if Eric's opinion isn't enough for 'ya ...  there are a dozen other prominent musicians that would say the same thing.  How'd he start playing a slide ...?  By using a "pill bottle" as an experiment while he was "laid up" in bed from falling off a horse.  Now THAT'S a story!    So on this day, Duane Allman fans, I definitely salute you!   Call me today and tell me what Duane Allman song you'd like on the punch out at 5:00 ...
