Duane Allman packed a lot of living into his twenty-four years. Before becoming the inspirational leader of The Allman Brothers Band, Duane was one of the most sought after studio guitarists, playing with such legends as Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Wilson Pickett and King Curtis. Duane was unable to read or write music, but he was blessed with perfect pitch. He taught himself to play the slide guitar by dumping the aspirin out of a bottle of Coricidin and using the empty bottle as a slide. The only song in ABB catalog written by Duane is the beautiful instrumental, “Little Martha”. All Duane ever wanted to do was jam, and jam he did.
