Duane Allman

“Skydog”

Long overdue, This painting of Duane “Skydog” has caught the attention of his many dedicated fans. I had many great hours painting this to capture his spirit.

Howard Duane Allman (November 20, 1946 – October 29, 1971) was an American guitarist, session musician, co-founder and leader of the The Allman Brothers Band.

A sought-after session musician both before and during his tenure with the Allman Brothers Band, Duane Allman performed with such established stars as King Curtis, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, and Herbie Mann. He also contributed heavily to the 1970 album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominos.

The Allman Brothers Band was formed in 1969 and based in the Southeastern United States. In the early 1970s, the band had major success with the line up of Duane, his brother Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and “Jaimoe”. Allman is best remembered for his brief but influential tenure in the band and in particular for his expressive slide guitar playing and inventive improvisational skills. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Allman at #2 in their list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time, second only to Jimi Hendrix. His tone (achieved with a Gibson Les Paul and two 50-watt bass Marshall amplifiers) was named one of the greatest guitar tones of all time by Guitar Player. I’ve painted him with his famous Les Paul GoldTop.

Duane Allman’s skills as a guitarist were complemented by personal qualities such as his intensity, drive and ability to draw the best out of others in making music. He is still referred to by his nickname “Skydog”, thus the name of this painting.

Duane Allman died at the early age of 24, only months after the release and initial success of the album At Fillmore East. He is dearly missed.

      Hi, The price listed does Not include a frame. Trying to ship a framed/insured peice with glass gets way too expensive for you. Plus it makes more sense to frame it locally and match it to your Decor. Shipping the print in a tube is roughly $8 in the US, and I believe $16.50 international. I hope this helps. After you order, you’ll have it in your hands in 2 days.
