Duane Allman ~ Ranked #9 Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Guitarists in 2011 ~ “Eric Clapton told me he knew working with Duane was going to take guitar music to a whole new place; they had a vision, and they got there. Clapton said he was really nervous about two guys playing guitar, but Duane was the coolest cat - he'd say, “Let's just get down!’ Duane died young, and it's just one of those things. You could tell he was going to get 50 times better. But God works it out like that, and that’s the legacy he left behind. In my iPod is everything Duane recorded. I listen to Allmans tunes every other day.” ~ Robert Randolph ~ 2011 © Rolling Stone

Boz Scaggs ~ Boz Scaggs (1969) ~ #24 Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time in 2012 ~ The stone-solid grooves on this underrated gem come courtesy of the Muscle Shoals rhythm section; the soulful guitar comes courtesy of Scaggs and guest Duane Allman. Together, they made "Loan Me a Dime" an FM-radio classic – more than 10 minutes of knockout blues pleading and wailing. ~ 2012 © Rolling Stone
