I would draw your attention to Bill Thames' article about Paul Hornsby on the home page. The article is dated May 5. Also the Rolling Stone article naming Duane as the #2 greatest guitar player of all time. To paraphrase that article, Duane would have been rated as high had there been no Allman Brothers Band due to his role enhancing the careers of others as a studio artist. In 1968 Duane's fame was established and growing throughout the industry. He had a good deal with Liberty. He could have done things like Liberty told him to do, continued his studio work, and lived comfortably financially. He made the decision to walk away from it all, follow his heart instead of his wallet, take his band through grueling tours playing gyms and armories, living on the road. And it has made all the difference.

As a result of his decision, he died almost penniless. And as a result of his decision, we have had a lifetime of wonderful music for the soundtracks of our lives. As a result of his decision, all the current and former band members have been able to make a decent living in the business. The same is true of the offshoot bands and musicians, past and present. This October we will again gather together in my hometown of Gadsden, Ala. to honor the life and legacy of Duane Allman. Please join us.

The itinerary for this year's celebration:

Wed. Oct. 20: Skydogs, Chestnut Station, $2 cover.
Thurs. Oct. 21: Derek Trucks Band, Gadsden Center for Cultural Arts, tickets $17.
Fri. Oct. 22: the GB's own Lefty Collins (leftyblues) and the No Mercy Band from Chicago,
Gadsden Cultural Arts, 8-10:30, $4 cover.
Fri. Oct. 22: Jimmy Hall and the Prisoners of Love featuring Jack Pearson, Chestnut
Station, 10:30 til--(no curfew), tickets $12 advance, $15 at the door, on-sale date
Aug. 7.
Sat. Oct. 23: The Jam for Duane, Gadsden Cultural Arts, 1PM-1AM. The event is free, a
$5 donation to our children's museum requested. Players and fans welcome, Jimmy
and Jack are expected, along with several others TBA.

The Hampton Inn is the host venue. Rooms are in tight supply due to a national fishing tournament here that weekend.

Please join us in honoring the life and legacy of Duane Allman.

True enough! I brought my djembe a few years ago and sat in on Mountain Jam. Due to scheduling conflicts, I probably won't make it to the Jam For Duane this year, but I heartily encourage everybody to go if they can. My wife Tammy and I really enjoyed our visit in 2001, and I still wear my Jam For Duane shirt with pride!

For those who don't know, "Skydogs" is the band with Brent Sibley as guitarist/vocalist, better known to y'all as skyponydogboy. He is the real deal, both as a musician and as a human being/friend. I'm hoping like heck that the people who Clay was referring to show up so I can watch him/them drop their jaw over Brother Brent's playing, and I have no doubt they will.

Also, as far as I have ever read around here, I'm the only regular participant here who has seen Jimmy Hall and the Prisoners of Love. We saw 'em in Huntsville one night in a tiny club waaaay off the beaten path. Maybe 40 people there at the most. It was like a personal concert for just me and my wife almost. But those guys still just SMOKED the place. Jack is as low-key-while-burnin-the-house-down as ever, and Jimmy is an absolute fireball!

The Jam is one of those events that's worth the effort to get to all by itself, but this year it's shaping up to be an almost week-long, non-stop exercise in musical intensity training! Really, if you've ever traveled for a weekend of ABB or DTB or DB&GS, you will not question whether a trip to this gig was worth every bit as much.

Thanks Randy for giving this wonderful event a new home and a super-charged shot-in-the arm! See ya there!

Tom S.

It's a blast. I didn't make it to NYC this year, but '03 was way cool! It was great singing with Lam, Buka, Jimmy and Michael!
