This photo was sent to me by Elizabeth to share with y'all. It is reportedly of the first rehearsal of the band after Duane's death, sometime in November 1971 on the farm in Juliette, GA. You might recognize the porch as the one in all the Brothers and Sisters photos. God bless them, can you imagine what was going through their minds and hearts at the time?

Thank you Liz! And thank you Dave.

I am struck by no one in front of Jaimoe, we understand why. The stairs in a way seem symbolic. Now after looking at this for a while, look at the end of the red arrow. I see a face?

It's looks just exactly like a small child sitting under the porch playing to me. Most old porches had a plank floor with cracks/spacing, looks like the sun is shining through on top of a blonde headed child.

Vaylor, what say you?

It is widely known that slide guitar great saw the Allman Brothers when Duane was still there, but he also saw the band after Duane died but when Berry was still alive. I asked Sonny in an interview from last year about seeing the band then, below,


quote:
Gritz Music Magazine 2005

I was a little too young to see Duane Allman live, but you did get to see him pick. What was it like, and how did the experience influence you?

“I sure did, and after that night, man! My friends had been telling me about this band that had been playing in New Orleans at the old Warehouse, a venue down there, and unfortunately I missed out on the early days of that. I missed out on some really great stuff. The thing is, I was gigging all the damn time. They actually came up here and played in Lafayette. The university used to sponsor concerts up here in a God awful sounding arena, and they played and man, I’m telling you! I had bought the albums, they had their first two albums out then, but hearing him live, and watching him play, it was like a spiritual experience, really. He made me want to go home and crank it up, and that was an influence in and of itself. But he played so tastefully and so soulfully. I mean, they were great. Dickey Betts was great. The band was great. And that was the thing that impressed me the most, with all of these great individual musicians, they were a ‘band.’ That’s what impressed me the most. So on the one level, Duane inspired me individually to want to improve, and then on the level of the group it inspired me with a goal to set.”

How close were you to the stage that night?

“Well, I got pretty close. I went up pretty close, but my friends were back there, and I had a date so I had to go back and not overlook her and all of that, but it was great. The cool thing was, he came out and right off the bat he played three songs with the slide, he played bottleneck on three. He retuned his guitar, and never used the slide again. The rest of the set he just played flatpick. That is how they did the set that night. The thing that hit me was, his reputation was so much about the slide thing that he was like, ‘Look, there’s more to me than just that.’ Here again, he was about the band and what they did in the set. I’m sure in the early days he was probably offered deals at the label to do a power trio thing, but he wanted a big group, and as a leader he just really showed that to me that night.”

What was Duane Allman’s demeanor like that night? Did he play with confidence?


“Oh, absolutely. Total confidence. When those guys got on stage you could tell there was a vibe there, man. ‘This is our life, this is what we do, here it is.’ They wanted everybody to have a good time. He would cut up a bit. Finally, right before the encore he came out and started doing a muscle-man pose, putting his hand behind his arm to prop his bicep up, and he was goofing and said, ‘Look, we are skinny dudes, and we need our rest, so we can only play one more song. And, we got to get in that truck back there and drive down the road.’”

Did they play a long time that night?

“Not really. They didn’t let them play too long that night. But, I saw them again before Berry Oakley died and they must have played three and a half-four hours.”

Do you mean that you saw the band with Berry still there, but after Duane died?

“Yeah, I caught that in-between where Dickey just took over the whole thing. They didn’t have another guitar player. It was weird. I didn’t know what to think either, and I only had these two shows to judge anything by, but they just went for it. Because of the loss, there is no way that they felt like they could ever replace Duane Allman. So, they didn’t. They took the band as it was and they just stretched the thing. Dickey would launch into a five-minute solo at the beginning and after the song. But I got to say, man, some of it was here or there, kind of new, and then they would hit on something and it would just be genius. It literally blew me away, under those circumstances, you know what I mean? They were dealing with grief, a huge tragedy and a huge change, and you’ve got to be practical and get back out on the road, and I think they went to the music and each other as a means to deal with it. It’s the thing to do. I think it propelled them to push more. I mean, what are we talking about but grace in the face of adversity. I think that is a good lesson there.”

There is a big hole on that stage, but I love the guys playing through it...

I have to agree with you now, Libby - it does look like a little one under there - enjoying the music.

If you think about it, Vaylor looked to be 3 or 4, 5 tops on the B&S cover, so he would have been around 2 at this time. You sure that looks like a kid up under there? I don't think so.

Alright folks. Enough of the ghostly mumbo jumbo. Those "people" are piles of rocks that are the foundation that holds up the porch. Lots of early 1900's houses had rock piles for the foundation.

Sure did, especially here in the South. My grandmother's house has stone pillars under it and we spent hours under her porch playing and building forts in the dug out basement.

Ghostly images or not, thanks to those who share their memories here.
