      I'm at Disneyworld, so I can't post the detail that I'd like. But there is a song with what I believe to be a great example of the slide guitar. It's by a band called Jefferson Starship. I'll have to see if I can find a video, when I get more more time.

        Doh! I forgot about In My time of Dying! and apparantly, Jack White of the White Stripes plays slide too (and Edge of U2).

                  Dickey Betts is the Allman Brothers Band IMHO. Just like I won't see Pink Floyd live without Roger Waters, I won't see The Allman Brothers without Dickey Betts. When the Allman Brothers band was just getting started, Duane and Dickey played together. When Duane died, it was all Dickey Betts.

                  Dickey Betts is perhaps, the greatest Souther Rock guitar player ever, and I absolutley love his sound. I got to see The Allman Brothers Band live back in the early 1990's at Red Rocks, with the ever loving Dickey Betts!!

                      that's another great Zeppeline tune that they released well after the group broke up. I wanna say that they thought about including this song on either Zep 2 or Zep 3 but it got cut. Great song.

                        I'd like to see a comeback from Southern rock, soul, blues, rockabilly, hybrids, Texas soul, whatever. Anything but this wasteland of music since about 2000.

                          I'm not 100% sure if this is true or not, but I believe that between 1970 and 1971 all these fantastic talents died at the age of 27: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Duane Allman:

                          I remember the day he died... the radio was reporting "Duane Allman" and all the girls heard "Wayne Osmond" and started flipping out. It kind of shocked me that these 10 and 11 year old girls knew who Duane Allman was until I found out why they were crying... stupid girls!!!

                                I got your back DomCasual -

                                "Do you want to tell me that this isn't one of the greatest slide guitar songs of all time? This band is in the rock n' roll hall of fame. And this song (choking up a little here) - This Song! - well, I don't have the words. Many might consider this song to be their own personal anthem - the song that defines their own lives. And while I feel more partial to one of the many great songs in the Air Supply portfolio, I would have a hard time arguing with this choice.

                                I picture myself walking down a hallway, through fog, and the people that have been influential in my life start a slow clap. And when that clap ascends into a crescendo, this very song starts what turns out to be the highlight reel of my life.

                                When the Broncos win their next Super Bowl, I like to think that this will be the song they'll be playing between the final gun, and the awarding of the Lombardi Trophy. But that's just me. I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me. That's just something that I enjoy.

                                Anyway, enough with the poetry. Just turn up the volume, and let the next four minutes and fifty-six seconds transport you to another place.
