Galadrielle Allman

GALADRIELLE ALLMAN went to her first concert as an infant in diapers, held in her teenagemother’s arms. Playing was her father —Duane Allman, who would become one of the mostinfluential and sought-after musicians of his time. Galadrielle was raised in the shadow of hisloss and his fame. She felt a strange kinship to the fans who longed for him, but she neededto know more. It took her many years to accept that his life and his legacy were hers, andwhen she did, she began to ask for stories —from family, fellow musicians, friends—andthey began to flow. Galadrielle Allman’s memoir is at once a rapturous, riveting, and intimateaccount of one of the greatest guitar prodigies of all time, the story of the birth of a band thatredefined the American musical landscape and a tender inquiry of a daughter searching forher father in the memories of others.
