Duane and Gregg Allman Portrait by Jimm Roberts 1970.
I took this portrait of Duane and Gregg Allman during the "Idlewild South" album cover photo session in Macon, Georgia 1970. This was the band's 2nd album on Capricorn Records. The cover photo of the entire band is the only studio portrait ever taken of the original band. Shortly after this session, in 1971 Duane Allman lost his life as a result of a motorcycle accident. In 1972, only blocks away from Duane's accident, Bassist Berry Oakley also lost his life due to a motorcycle accident.
