"Duane Allman is the only person I consider a major Dobro influence. He could play Dobro any way, and in fact played it his way. I wasn't aware of that until we were doing the Layla sessions, and there were a couple of ballads where he decided to play straight Dobro. It was the only time I heard Dobro that wasn’t strictly confined to being country Dobro – meaning lap-style Dobro, very regimented."
