Happy Birthday Skydog, Rest in Peace

Duane Allman was born Howard Duane Allman on November 20, 1946.   Although your time on this planet was brief, the musical contributions will live on forever.  The music you made with the Allman Brothers, Derek & The Dominoes, Delaney & Bonnie and countless sessions has withstood the test of time.  There are some who play in a similar fashion to you but there will never be anyone quite like you anytime soon. There is a reason why Rolling Stone Magazine named you #2 on the list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time!

As we approach the 40th anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band, just remember that Warren & Derek’s slide playing will always be Duane’s licks!

R.I.P. Brother Duane, the road goes on forever……

Thanks for all the years of great music, amazing live shows and your lifetime with the E. Street Band.  You have been the soundtrack to my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Rock on Bruce for many years to come!!!
