Duane Allman: Age 24 | Cause Of Death: MOTORCYCLE

Allman Brothers Band

(b. 20 November 1946, Nashville, Tennessee, USA, d. 29 October 1971)

One of rock’s most inventive and respected guitarists.  On 29 October, in an effort to avoid a collision with a truck, Allman crashed his motorcycle and died following three hours of intensive surgery. This tragic accident robbed music of one of its exceptional talents whose all-too-brief legacy reveals an individual of rare skill and humility. Duane Allman Books
