Trucks Plays Duane Allman's Goldtop at Final ABB Show

On October 28, the Allman Brothers Band played their final show together at New York City's Beacon Theatre. In many ways the show was a tribute to departed co-founder Duane Allman. "I think Duane’s presence is part of the moment by moment journey that this band is still on, both musically and from a vision standpoint," said guitarist Warren Haynes to the Wall Street Journal before the gig.

Derek Trucks also saluted Duane by playing the late guitarist's 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Les at various points during the show. The band also chose to start the three-set show with Duane Allman's instrumental "Little Martha." The 26-song gig ended after midnight on what was the 43rd anniversary of Duane's passing. The Allman Brothers Band wrapped up the show with the first song they ever played together, Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More."

Although this marks the end of the Allman Brothers Band's 45 year long career, the individual band members will still be busy with various projects. Derek Trucks fronts the Tedeschi Trucks Band, and Warren Haynes is keeping busy with Gov't Mule.
