His paintings and drawings persistently resist being photographed accurately and are an anathema to our Insta-everything contemporary culture. Duane Zaloudek was born in a boxcar in in Texhoma, Texas. He lives and maintains his studio in the East Village of Manhattan. For more information and private viewings contact us via email! I didn't even know he had a daughter.
I'm on the fence about this 'memoir'. Duane died when Galadrielle was 2. At that age, there is not much you remember about anyone or anything. All of her memories consist of outings taken with her I'm not a die-hard fan of the Allman Brothers, but I know and enjoy a few of their songs. All of her memories consist of outings taken with her mother to concerts and such, or stories through another's experiences.
When I was reading the stories she had heard from other people, I wondered how much of the telephone wire game came into play. Somehow little things always change. Over the years people remember things differently too.

For me, it was hard to buy into the stories. Even if they were entertaining. So that's my advice. If you just want to be entertained, and treat it more like fiction, it could be a great story. If you are a lover of personal memoirs, like me, you might be put off by the second-hand accounts too. Then again, maybe not. To each his own, right?! Jun 27, Jeff rated it it was amazing. Even though I have read a lot of books about the Allman Brothers and know the stories, this feels more intimate and somehow makes the stories more interesting than the first time I read them. Aug 28, Mary, Mary, Just a bit contrary rated it it was amazing Shelves: , music-icons.
This is departure from the usual music bio in that it's mainly the story of woman trying to find the famous father she was deprived of knowing due to his tragic death. She finds him, warts and all. I really liked how this read almost like a novel and not just a biography author spitting out facts. I'm sure the personal connection Galadrielle has with the subjects is a huge part of that. Having much older cousins and siblings that babysat me as a kid, I was exposed to the Allman Brothers you Wow.
Having much older cousins and siblings that babysat me as a kid, I was exposed to the Allman Brothers young and always loved them. Some of the stories in this were very familiar to me because I recently read My Cross to Bear by Gregg Allman, another book I highly recommend to music fans. May 20, Dalen rated it liked it. I'm an Allman Brothers fan but this book was pretty painful.
I'm being generous with my rating only for the Allman Brothers facts and history. I know this was a daughter's quest to connect with her father but the writing style could have used some help. Duane Allman was an incredible artist and it's a real shame he didn't live longer. Feb 20, Vincent rated it really liked it. It was nice to learn about one of the most influential guitar players of my lifetime. If you're interested at all in music Jul 11, Brian Walter rated it really liked it.
Do they know where they take us, only to leave us to find our own way home, back from the depths of their dreams? Seek that somewhere else. Though a wealth of information is provided about what Duane did and when, this is a tale of a woman searching to discover the father gone from her life before she could even remember. It is i "Do muscians know what they give us? It is in her desperation of unwrapping that mystery that these pages shine. Galadrielle Allman peels back the folklore of her famous father in an attempt to see who he was, what pushed him through life, how he did what he did and ultimately why he had to leave them.
Yes, there's some of the infamous drunken Allman Brothers orgy stories, but a lot more of the quiet times Duane spent creating the music which would come to define him. Personally, as horrific as it sounds, I feel there are some stars that shine so brightly that they cannot last forever.

They are here for us, to shine such a profound light on things that they are never seen the same again. Duane didn't simply add a chapter, he rewrote the book. It's a tragedy he couldn't survive longer, but along with many other influential artists he did a lot with the short time he had. This book is manditory for every rock n roll library. I grew up hearing bits and pieces of The Allman Brothers Band as it was part of my parents music collection. Not enough to claim to be a "fan" but enough to recognize some of their more popular stuff Midnight Rider. So naturally I didn't know anything about the history of the band.
When I saw this memoir by the daughter of one of the band members I thought, this will be good, two of my favorite things: memoirs and music. I had no idea what I was getting into, not to mention that YouTube rabbit I grew up hearing bits and pieces of The Allman Brothers Band as it was part of my parents music collection.
I had no idea what I was getting into, not to mention that YouTube rabbit hole I was falling down. This was like a musical tour of history. It was beautiful, and it was sad. I looked up a lot of the stuff Galadrielle mentions in the book on YouTube and there is no doubt that Duane was something special. I try to make myself feel better by telling myself that sometimes talent like this just can't be contained. The story was sad not only because we lost an extremely talented musician, but because Galadrielle lost her father before she could really get to know him.
Galadrielle takes us with her on her journey to get to know her father and she does it so gracefully and without sounding like she wants to tell us all about her famous dad and why he is so great and that she has all the details because she's his kid. This journey was emotional and made me weepy several times, the kind of story telling that can only come from a talented artist. All that being said, I'll be heading over to my parents house later today to go through my dad's record collection because I'm sure he has to have some ABB in there somewhere.
Sep 24, Davidcrumhorn rated it it was amazing. As a musician, I enjoy reading about those whose work I have admired much of my life. Duane Allman has always been my favorite. Lists of "The Greatest" are pointless, but Duane's unique genius is impossible to miss; and like many of his ilk, it burned too brightly to last long. His daughter combines the unvarnished story of his all too brief life with the tale of her struggles to grasp her own experience of living a life as a child of a legend she never knew. The last chapter speaks of the wisdo As a musician, I enjoy reading about those whose work I have admired much of my life.
The last chapter speaks of the wisdom she gained in her journey, and it alone is worth the price of her book. And Galadrielle Allman is a great writer. Keep writing, Ms Allman, please. Apr 18, David rated it it was amazing. It led me back to discover some of Duane Allman's earliest guitar work and I did further research while reading the book. Galadrielle is an awesome writer and makes the reader feels they are right there in the story.
What an act of courage to research and interview al of her subjects in order to learn more about her father - who died when she was 2 years old. This book is truly an act of love and I am better for reading it. There are no words to describe Duane Allman. He is one of the greatest and probably the best slide guitarist of all time. This is a highly recommend book if you love music, guitars, or the Allman Brothers. Jul 10, Knemlich rated it really liked it. Interesting read for any music fan who grew up listening to the Allmans.
While I read this, I had my phone nearby with a Spotify account, so any musical references made that were unfamiliar, I could quickly pull up and listen to. I was fortunate enough to see Duane play with his band and many of the bands surrounding him, including Delaney and Bonnie with Clapton. This book r Interesting read for any music fan who grew up listening to the Allmans. This book really brought back those great memories. May 21, Mark Westmoreland rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , narrative-nonfiction , biography , audio-books. I was pleasantly surprised.
I appreciated how she presented her dad in a neutral light and let the reader decide what type of man he was. She also made me an even bigger fan of his music. Jun 13, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: ebooks , biography-memoir. Although I liked songs by the Allman Brothers Band, I was too young to understand and appreciate the talents of Duane Allman before he died. This book taught me what I didn't know in the compelling voice of his daughter, who was two when he died.
The results of her efforts to learn more about him, beyond the public figure, are laid out in this biography which is truthful and heartfelt, and sometimes heartbreaking but never mawkish. Mar 25, Sam Motes rated it it was amazing. So much more than the the average biography of a Rock God. It is the desperate search by a daughter for the man, the myth, and the legend who was not only the Rock God but her flesh and blood father with all his amazing talents and soul destroying demons.
Chasing glimpses of memories from her young mind when Duane was in and out of her life as well as the ghosts of stories told to her through the years. It is an intimate deeply personal look into the tragic brief life of Duane Allman that shreds So much more than the the average biography of a Rock God. It is an intimate deeply personal look into the tragic brief life of Duane Allman that shreds the heart strings.
