Books Info:

Skydog: The Duane Allman Story free pdf "Play All Night!" details Duane Allman's childhood, adolescence, and adulthood (brief though it was), exploring his musical influences, his early bands, his relationship with Gregg Allman (his equally famous brother), his sessions as a sideman in Muscle Shoals and New York, his monumental work on Eric Clapton's "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs", his contributions to slide guitar technique and style, his creation of the Allman Brothers Band and the genre now known as Southern Rock, and his continued influence on music over 30 years after his tragic death. The book also examines the ongoing story of the Allman Brothers Band. Recently chosen by "Rolling Stone" magazine as the second greatest guitarist of all time (Jimi Hendrix being number one on the list), this is the first book ever written about this innovative musician, session player extraordinaire, and founder of one of the world's greatest Rock bands. First-hand interviews with Gregg Allman, Chuck Leavell, Muscle Shoals session musicians and studio owners Rick Hall, Jimmy Johnson, David Hood and others fill out this remarkable story.
