Transitioning from rock to heavy metal

I promised MH would run this some time ago, a discovery he came across weeks ago of another zombie. Since I am traveling tomorrow, I am posting it this evening.

This time it is a musician who stayed a musician, but merely crossed the line from a rock band to heavy metal.

Here is the Wikipedia account of Duane Allman’s death:

“Allman was killed in a motorcycle crash only months after the release and initial success of At Fillmore East.[17] On October 29, 1971, while the band was on a break from touring and recording, Allman was riding his Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle at high speed on Hillcrest Avenue, in the western part of Macon. As he approached Bartlett Street, a flatbed truck carrying a lumber crane stopped suddenly in the intersection, forcing him to swerve sharply. He struck either the back of the truck or the ball on the lumber crane and was thrown from the motorcycle, which bounced into the air, landed on him and skidded another 90 feet with him pinned beneath it, crushing his internal organs. He was alive when he was brought to a hospital, but despite immediate surgery he died several hours later from massive internal injuries.”

I am of the opinion that the spooks at Langley have a whole department that does nothing but write fake accounts of fake deaths. Notice the detail! And all made up!

Duane Allman did not die. He simply became Lemmy Kilmaster, joining the group Motörhead. I’ll leave it to others to help us understand why this re-positioning was thought necessary.

Here are the photos:

Allman Kilmister Composite

It is a perfect match-up save some ugly moles on Lemmy’s face. What are those, caterpillars? Still, there is no doubt in my mind that Duane Allman faked his death, and became Lemmy Kilmister.

You can duplicate these results yourself using the suggestions at this blog post.

PS: If you look closely at the Allman photograph, it appears that the caterpillar mole on Lemmy’s face is there and in development, covered by beard.

  1. I’ve never been big into heavy metal, but I can only assume that it was created as an outlet for a subgroup of high testosterone men to release their aggression on the music and mosh pits, instead of The Powers That Be.

    It would seem that the face splitting technology is much better at proving the negative that two people are not the same rather than being able to prove they are the same beyond a reasonable doubt. I would think it is not like a fingerprint which is said to be unique in the world. I would bet there are many thousands of people would would match Duane Allman using this technology. Is that incorrect?
    In this case, the differences in the shape of the eyes and nose for Duane Allman and Lemmy Killmeister leads me to doubt they are the same person. Also, Duane Allman is said to be 6’1” and Lemmy Killmeister is 5’10”.
    I can easily believe that Duane Allman did not really die in 1971, but I think saying he is now Lemmy Killmeister is a miss.

    • Heights don’t mean much. Even in pro sports you’ll see players be 3 or 4 inches taller than their real height. Many things can make up for a few inches. Plus where did you get those heights from? How do you know you can trust those heights? They lie about height all the time and even fudge photos, with the Paul/Mike McCartney case as an example.

      Adding a nose ridge is a possible procedure. Eyelid resizing is called Blepharoplasty, I believe.

      Lemmy shows up on the scene around the same time Allman dies. I wouldn’t be so quick to call it a miss.

    • Also, it is extremely uncommon to get a facial matchup like this. If you scroll back in time through the posts here you’ll find one on the mathematics behind it all. In addition, factor in the odds that two people who look so much like die and reappear on the scene and are also top notch guitarists.

      We discussed the nose issue, and it is indeed very common to put in a nose ridge in plastic surgery. Lemmy looks like he has one.

    Lemmy was in a band called Hawkwind. Plenty of photos on the net with a young Lemmy in the band, before 1971. Not Duane Allman
