Duane Allman (born Howard Duane Allman) was the founder and leader of the Allman Brothers Band until his death. Duane is consistently ranked in the top 10 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. Duane was also a sought-after session guitarist both before and during his time with the Allman Brothers Band.

On October 29, 1971, he was traveling west on Hillcrest Ave. As he entered the intersection of Hillcrest and Bartlett, a pipe truck caused him to swerve and crash his motorcycle. He died a few hours later.

Duane is buried at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, GA next to his bandmate, Berry Oakley.
