With former Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts for a father, and guitar god Duane Allman for a namesake, it’s no surprise that Duane Betts picked up the electric guitar.
Born in Sarasota, Florida, Betts grew up on the road with The Allman Brothers Band and got to play with them for the first time on stage at age 16 in Vail, Colorado and just a few years later on stage at the Woodstock ’94 music festival.
