Librarians, be the first to get your hands on an early-read of this moving memoir, a must-listen on audiobook for music fans everywhere. On sale March 4th, PLEASE BE WITH ME: A Song for My Father, Duane Allman is read by author Galadrielle Allman herself, offering a hauntingly intimate experience to listeners and longtime admirers of music legend Duane Allman of the Allman brothers.
Galadrielle Allman went to her first concert as an infant in diapers, held in her teenage mother’s arms. Playing was her father—Duane Allman, who would become one of the most influential and sought-after musicians of his time. Just a few short years into his remarkable career, he was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of twenty-four. His daughter was two years old.
Galadrielle Allman’s memoir is at once a rapturous, riveting, and intimate account of one of the greatest guitar prodigies of all time, the story of the birth of a band that redefined the American musical landscape, and a tender inquiry of a daughter searching for her father in the memories of others.
