Duane Allman

Duane Allman lives on in the hearts and minds of those he touched with his music. Duane was dynamic, charismatic, and very much alive. So much so that many of us feel his presence today when we listen to his music.

Ed Shane hosted Duane Allman in 1970 on a one hour radio broadcast he called The Duane Allman Hour (it was a one-time event). Duane talks about life, music, Clapton, forming the Allman Brothers, the first two albums, and many other things.

Later that year, Duane bopped into WABC-FM's studios in New York where he was interviewed (?!) by Dave Herman. Duane was -on- and this is a fun interview as well as another glimpse into Duane's philosophy of life. Darned perceptive 23 year old. The exact date of the interview was Dec. 9, 1970.
