 Duane Allman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As a teenager in 1960, Duane was motivated to take up the guitar by the example of his younger brother, Gregg, who had obtained a guitar after hearing a neighbor playing country music standards on an acoustic guitar.
Duane used an empty glass Coricidin medicine bottle, which he wore over his ring finger, as a slide; this was later picked up by other slide guitarists such as Bonnie Raitt, Rory Gallagher, and Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Allman was generally considered a pacificist and was highly respected among his band mates.

 DUANE "SKYDOG" ALLMAN (21 November 1946-29 October 1971)
Allman began his career playing in the Allman Joys and the Hourglass, two promising bands that went nowhere but caught the attention of Fame Studios owner Rick Hall.
Hall hired Allman to play on Wilson Pickett's 1968 "Hey Jude" album and was impressed enough with the results to retain him as a session man. Allman's work was featured on records by Aretha Franklin, King Curtis, Clarence Carter, Otis Rush, and Boz Scaggs, but he had larger ambitions.
Allman's work with Derek and the Dominos (a quartet led by a then 24 year old guitar legend, Eric Clapton) is from the 1970 international classic two record set released in 1970, "Layla and other assorted Love Songs." Allman played lead and slide on 11 of the 14 songs on the album.

The Allman Brothers story is inescapably about the cultural forces at work in the American South in the post World War II era, the churning emotional climate responsible for the "New South" that emerged in the early '70s and culminated in Jimmy Carter's presidency.
Duane was able to figure out how to play even the most complicated technical tricks after listening to the record a few times.

 Duane Allman
Duane plays his most astounding lead work behind the vocals on "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad", and crafts a stunning solo for a few measures before Eric joins in: two fantastic guitarists at their absolute peaks.
Before this Duane had retuned on stage between lead and slide songs, although he continued to play slide in standard tuning in songs with both lead and slide parts (the only two Allman Brothers songs like this are Dreams, Mountain Jam, and very briefly Midnight Rider, which both feature Duane playing both lead and slide).
Duane's tone on the slide is unique due to a number of points that set him apart from his other contemporaries.

 The Allman Brothers Band: Stand Back -- The Anthology - PopMatters Music Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The Allman Brothers Band really lived two separate lives: its mythical formative years with founder Duane Allman and its subsequent reincarnation as a premier "jam" band kept fresh by a constant supply of young talent.
Duane's contributions went beyond his unparalleled slide guitar, although I cannot think of another rock guitarist who managed to command attention without ever being flashy, because his presence always spurred the rest of the band to give their all.
The Allman Brothers Band may have slipped a little in the studio, as did every single one of their contemporaries, but their late period songs show why fans cared enough to even show up at their live concerts.

 35 years gone, Duane Allman still among best - ROCK MUSIC - MSNBC.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The blues represents the fertile ground from which rock sprouted, and Duane Allman was on a mission from an early age to become a respected part of a tradition that included guitarists like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and B.B. King.
But it also allowed Duane to be discovered by more prominent members of the rock world, including Eric Clapton, who heard him wail at the end of Wilson Pickett’s cover of “Hey Jude” and just had to meet him.
While Clapton is exceptionally good on “Layla,” Duane Allman’s slide transformed the album from an earnest homage to the blues that would provide filler during a lull in Clapton’s career into one of the landmark works of rock and roll.
