The Skydog Woody Project

Skydog Woody is a recording project featuring two of the
world's most famous guitars; Duane Allman's 1957 Gibson
Goldtop Les Paul & Allen Woody's Gibson Thunderbird bass.
The Goldtop was used on the Allman Brothers' first albums
and Eric Clapton's Layla. The Thunderbird was also used on
numerous Allman Brothers' records. With Joe Davis on
vocals/guitars, Garry Harper on bass, and Patrick Daniel
Trombly on drums, the trio intends to showcase the guitars'
legendary status to reignite the magic that these guitars
possess. With the blessings and approvals of all parties
involved, the band is taking on this project with a lot of love
and respect for these guitars and where they come from.

Duane Allman (Nov 20, 1946 - Oct 29, 1971) was the
founding father of the Allman Brothers Band, as well as one of
the most respected session musicians of all time. He
performed with artists such as King Curtis, Aretha Franklin, &
Wilson Pickett. Duane Allman went on to record Layla and
Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominos. This
album quickly became part of American rock history and a
staple of any guitar lover's collection. Rolling Stone magazine
ranked him #2 on their 2003 list of the 100 Greatest
Guitarists of all time, second only to Jimi Hendrix

Allen Woody (Oct 3, 1955 - Aug 26, 2000) joined The Allman
Brothers Band in 1989. He is best known for his tenure in this
band, as well as Gov't Mule, The Artimus Pyle Band, The Peter
Criss Band, and Blue Floyd. He owned a large collection of
guitars, including the Gibson Thunderbird used on this
project, and remains an important influence to many bassists
to this day. The movie Rising Low was filmed as a
documentary about bass players and was dedicated to Allen's
