    Allen was a friend and neighbor as was his father Doug. Years After Allen passed away a friend of mine received permission to record with Duane Allman's lost 57 Les Paul Gold Top and asked me to play bass on the CD. I came up with the idea of the possible use of Allan's bass being both were members of the Allman Brothers Band and went to see Doug and told him of the project we wanted to do. He loved the idea saying he was sure Allen would love the idea and Doug loaned me the bass. We recorded the CD The SkyDog Woody Project. When finished I went back to Doug to return the bass with a copy of the CD at which time he told me to keep the bass and that Allen would want me to have it. I have since had large medical bills and am forced to sell all my gear including this gem. twoguitars.jpg IMG_20190930_144326780.jpg
