Not much action here on the DA page. So I thought I would throw something out there. What would Duane be doing these days? Who he be playing with? Who would he be listening to? We will never know but its fun to contemplate.

Well... If Duane did not die on Oct 29, 1971, Berry would not have died a year later. Gregg, probably, wouldn't have gotten so into drugs and alcohol and may not have developed liver cancer. Dickey Betts would, probably, not have gotten to be such a detriment to the ABB and would, probably, not have been fired. Butch Trucks would have been in a different position and, probably, would not have blown his own brains out. So... I have come to the conclusion that the Allman Brothers Band would have been making amazing music all these years and would, probably, still be together in 2020.

Probably a lot of jazz. He had the band perform the Coltrane-influenced "My Favorite Things" at Gatlinburg and once for an audience who'd never heard of them ( http://allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&file=viewt hread&tid=29768#pid ) ; "Dreams" was his homage to Coltrane; his bird sounds were a salute to Charlie Parker ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpA-qrdc6bg ); he recorded an album with Herbie Mann.

Listen to the radio program where he played some of his favorite music, and how he enthused about Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Go to https://duaneallman.info/duaneinterviews.htm and pick the second interview (easy to find!)

I don't think he would have abandoned his other roots, but I think he would have featured jazz much more in the band's music.
