Photographer's Note

My previous picture showed you Duane Allman's gravesite, this is the man's bedroom.


THE BIG HOUSE is located at 2321 Vineville Avenue, Macon, GA. In January 1970, it became the house where members of the Allman Brothers Band and their roadies, friends and families lived until 1973. It was the focal point of gathering in those early years when the magic that is the Allman Brothers Band was taking shape.

The Big House now is The Allman Brothers Band Museum. Music fans can admire various vintage instruments and other memorabilia. Upstairs you find the bedrooms of both Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, the "oriental room" (for smokes and listening to music) and even the bathroom of the band.

For more info, check The Big House Museum

For me, the absolute highlight of my trip down south. More info in my previous post.


THIS PICTURE shows Duane Allman's bedroom in its striking blue walls and a replica of Goya's Maya Desnuda on the wall. Quite a surprise for me to discover that one of my favourite guitar players is a fan of one of my all time favourite painters.
