Happy Birthday Duane Allman | Live At Fillmore East 1970

Duane Allman would have turned 68 today had he lived and after all these years we still think there are few guitarists better than "Skydog." As we've mentioned there's sadly little footage of Duane available for viewing, but the few clips there are show off why he's at the top of many "best guitarists" lists.

The Allman Brothers Band's September 23, 1970 performance at Bill Graham's Fillmore East was recorded for a PBS special. A 30-minute segment of the amazing footage circulates and includes Graham's intro, "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'," "Dreams," "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post." About two years ago a cleaned up version of the video was posted to YouTube featuring the best quality of the footage we've ever seen. Check it out:
