Author and Grammy nominee Randy Poe offers a smoothly written, extensively detailed biography of rock music icon Duane Allman in Skydog: The Duane Allman Story. Covering Allman's life from his childhood fascination with music to his efforts to master the slide guitar, his recognition as an A-list player and his creation of the Southern Rock genre, to his tragic death at the young age of 24. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate life story, complemented by a discography of Allman's work with his own bands and on other artist's recordings, as well as snapshot summaries of the continuing lives and careers of Allman's friends and bandrates. A top-notch, involving biography of a truly passionate music maker.
