Lecture 13: “Whipping Post” (1969) - The Allman Brothers Band 9/23/1970 Fillmore East (Official): Duane Allman, co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band along with his brother Gregg Allman, Dicky Betts, Butch Trucks, Berry Oakley, and Jai Johanny Johanson, bridged the gap between the early blues guitarists and the hard rock sound in the United States.  A motorcycle accident took his life in October 1971 - he was only 24 years old. His life was far too short, but his legacy is long and his influence deep. With his masterful slide guitar playing and incredible improvisational abilities, Duane Allman, more than any other musician, helped to define the blues hard rock sound, and in the process The Allman Brothers Band helped spawn a whole new genre, Southern Rock.  This is a 1971 live performance of “Whipping Post” from their first album The Allman Brothers Band (1969).
