Warren Haynes Ashes & Dust Band features Jeff Sipe of the Aquarium Rescue Unit on drums as well as Americana trio ChessBoxer. The Nashville-based ChessBoxer includes Matt Menefee on banjo, Ross Holmes on violin and Royal Masat on upright bass.
I listened to the first show (below) of this band configuration. Jeez Louise. Many of the tunes are upbeat and I caught myself weaving to this music. The Blue Sky was just beautiful. There are times that Warren does that slide thing when he takes it up really high and the crowd love it. Throughout the ChessBoxer boys show their mastery. During the intros Warren says Matt Menefee does things with a banjo you shouldn’t be able to do with a banjo. The violin player shines all through the show but really shines on Jessica. You have never heard Dickey Betts instrumental masterpiece played like this and I’d love to hear Dickey’s opinion. The violinist sounds like Warren on slide.

|Well I haven't been on the ABB site in a long time and I came to post something for somebody and the first thing I see on the guest book is the post about Brent's son. My sincere condolences to Brent and his family I will always remember those Jam for Duane's that I attended. It's funny but it was at those that I learned a lot about Duane and the ABB and then later a lot about those close to me in my life, some good, some bad, but always worth knowing and always a good vibe by those who really counted. So sorry Brent and I hope you know that we all care about you.|
We rarely get a chance to see another country's editorial about the USA
Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. The article was written by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title 'C'ntarea Americii, meaning 'Ode ToAmerica ') in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei 'The Daily Event' or 'News of the Day'.
~An Ode to America ~
Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.
On 9/ll, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers. Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about.
Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.
After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On every occasion, they started singing: 'God Bless America !'
I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.
How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being? Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy. What on earth unites the Americans in such a way? Their land? Their history? Their economic Power? Money? I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion... Only freedom can work such miracles.
It took a person on the outside - looking in - to see what we take for granted !
GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!

|RIP Lammie, Bup, Skip and Forrest. Four fine men gone way too soon. My thoughts and prayers going out to their families. Brent, special large hugs to you. There are no words. xoxo|
Just be fabulous!
|"it was the third of sept., that day I'll always remember," etc....actually the day I'm thinking of right now was one in august 2012 at chastain park, that was the last time I saw buppalo, hard to believe that was 3 years and a month ago. also thinking of brent and all those JFDs I went to, some of my best musical memories happened right there. what a great crowd every year! what a great event!|
|Was thinking of a night in Gadsden, when Bup was still with us, and a private little conversation we had. I dont think he would mind if I shared a bit of it here...|
...I remember Bup pulling me aside at a Jam For Duane, he felt compelled to tell me how much he loved Brent and how proud he was of him.
It was a glorious Alabama night, crisp and cool, we had just walked from one venue to another , when Bup grabbed me by the arm, saying he had something to tell me.
At first I felt a bit frightened, he seemed so serious, he had an odd look in his eye. I couldn't imagine what he was about to tell me.
Then he blurted out how much he admired Brent, he wanted others to know the kind of man , the kind of family the Sibleys were. It was very important to Bup.
He went on to tell me how Brent had been Daddy and Mama to the children, raising them as a single Father, and what a great job he had done.
I remember Bup waving his arm over the crowd, pointing out how many of the local folks had attended, for the love of the Sibley family.
We laughed together happily watching Brent welcoming a table of elderly ladies , delicate, fine women, with snow white hair.
They clearly had no idea who Duane Allman was, but were glowing while Brent took their frail hands in his , and bent down to kiss each of their cheeks and thank them for coming. They all asked after Forrest, Alabama's hometown hero. Brent was purely beaming with pride and love , as were the little ladies.
At the time it seemed a small, personal thing, but now I cant get it out of my head.
For those who have not had the pleasure of meeting Brent other than online, he is the real deal, as I know you all must imagine .
As I continue praying Brent can find peace at this terrible time, Im remembering how Bup told me Brent was everything to the children, and they were everything to Brent .
|oh no..Kevin and I love Brent so much. am at a loss..devastating news |
