Thread: dickey is the man

T-Sizzle - 10/10/2005 at 08:31 PM

hey guys, if you think dickey is the man post here i saw his in summer 2005 with the dickey betts band and he was amazing a little drunk haha maybe more than a little but he was great

gina - 10/10/2005 at 11:14 PM

Not just THE man, but still a Ramblin' Man too.


eyezoftheworld7 - 10/11/2005 at 10:45 PM

Hell yeah he's THE MAN!!!


rainy - 10/28/2005 at 01:24 PM

He is by far " The Man " there's no one who can take that title. To me he is the greatest guitar player... alone or in any band...I feel privileged to have witness some of the greatest music making from Allman Bros. with Dickey Betts. It certainly is different without him and I'm a sentimental fool about things like this. A few years back I really thought a reconciliation was possible, but as time has worn on and everyone has there place within the two bands I see that as an unlikely ... dream of mine...hey it's just MO. I really love Dickey's Band DB & GS and all the guys he has in it..it's a great ensemble. Let's enjoy all their music, whether it be together or separate.

peace to all

Dickey is such a talent! Everytime I here him do the jam in Blue Sky,for one, I can't sit still.
I'm going to see him this coming Fri nite in Philly, Can't Wait!!!
Anyone know if his son Duane is playing this tour?

never give up entirely on the possibilty of at least one last short run together....
(maybe 3-5 gigs in '07)

it is what Duane would have wanted, IMO


susea - 6/20/2006 at 10:23 PM

Ok greggswoman, you and I are on a roll. Here's a picture I took the same night as the "Gregg smiling picture" this was a hot spot in the mid 80's when it would be The Dickey Betts Band then The Gregg Allman Band then both bands would come out and jam together.


susea - 6/20/2006 at 10:26 PM

BTW, it's the Living Room in Providence, Rhode Island, 1986. The place was tiny and I always sat on the edge of the stage. That's why the pictures are so close. I know the quality isn't great but hey it was 20 years ago!!


eyezoftheworld7 - 6/20/2006 at 11:33 PM

Grate pictures everyone, thanks for posting!

susea, Dickey's son Duane makes that exact face now when he plays!


greggswoman - 6/21/2006 at 12:53 AM

Great pic Susea!! Gotta love The Cat in the Hat!


susea - 6/21/2006 at 10:33 AM

It's hard to tell, or see but that's Matt Abts on drums!!


susea - 6/21/2006 at 11:24 AM

How about this! When both bands came out together! Thing of the past unfortunately.


greggswoman - 6/21/2006 at 09:18 PM

MMMMMM...Yummy lookin' blonde! Ooooops! This is Dickey's forum. OK. Susea, great pic of the Big Blonde Behind the B-3 and the Prince of Dixie! Maybe someday.....

Stephen - 7/4/2006 at 06:04 PM

Boy what a treat it is seeing these photos.
Mr. Betts must have been devastated at Joe Dan's tragic untimely death in that Jan. 2000 plane crash in Macon. They were lifelong friends, from way before Dickey became famous through their days traveling with the ABB and right up to the end, as greggswoman's picture depicts. Now that's a solid friendship right there -- through thick & thin.
Rest in peace, brother Joe Dan.

Awesome shot -- great one.
Thanks to Greggswoman for doing this -- it reaffirms (especially these black & white ones, the contrast in b&w photography is so cool -- must be why I prefer b&w movies too!! ) -- anyways it reaffirms that, whether he's there or not the ABB is as much Dickey's legacy as the current day ABB -- or Duane or Berry for that matter too.
Well, at least (I would guess) the ladies don't need as many towels looking at the Dickey photos
Great one indeed -- Bro. Dickey feeling it.

I've never heard that one before Susie -- I used to have that cutout album that had it, but too many years ago now to remember It was awesome when the Melissa that was on that record (the Hourglass demo, w/Duane) was included on One More Try though -- had forgotten how great that was -- I like it almost just as well as the EAP one now -- the Win Lose or Draw demo on One More Try, is incredible too, with Gregg, the Duck (Johnny Sandlin) and Bonnie Bramlett -- really one of the best things Gregg's EVER done IMO.
Doesn't Duane play the sitar on that Norwegian Wood? Man -- with Gregg's voice & all the demos that are so great, I'll have to get reacquainted with it again!!

Great pics (as always) greggswoman & Neil -- that's the first I've seen a different photo of the same shoot from the Win Lose or Draw tour -- at first I thought it was the same one as in the tour book, because Butch & Dickey have nearly identical expressions as in the famous one we all know, but it's obviously a different one.

Stephen - 7/12/2006 at 04:01 PM

Sen-freakin-sational!!
Locking in during the twin-lead part in the latter part of Southbound perhaps?
Dickey and Dan play a similar part in Madness, a short, BLISTERING twin-lead guitar part that IMO KILLS & helps make it one of the best unknown (to all but those in the know that is ) ABB songs there is.
This has GOTTA be one of the best shots ever -- the facial expressions say it all.
This expression can't say it enough though -- YOU ROCK, SISTAH MITZI. Thanks for posting these (where the heck do you find them anyway) -- they're awesome.
Missed the one of Dickey & Berry posted a couple of days ago by DBetts1, bumped up by Susea -- all I can say is (& to echo what Doug said in the Duane forum the other day) I love this place.

Hi Mitzi, Hope you had a nice weekend!
Pretty cool -- in addition to one I've never seen before & a perfect color reproduction of an older photo, I'll be darned if I can figure out when & where this is -- the Warehouse maybe, at their 12/31/71 or 72 shows? Or maybe their final Warehouse gig in 73? Or maybe Dickey's Great American Music Tour?
Fantastic.

Indeed -- 3/19/83 Stonybrook -- one of my favorite boots -- EXCELLENT show -- "Stonybrook revisited!" (Dickey welcoming the crowd) -- lot of rare songs like Lorraine, One Track Mind, Pick A Little Boogie, Stop Knockin' On My Door, CADILLAC TRACKS (an awesome cut), and they do a wonderful, laid back version of Rain sung by Jimmy Hall.

susea... ya know it's funny that you mentioned that about the hair thingy.. I was thinking about all these pictures and also seeing Dickey through the yrs from 1972 til right now... how many different hairstyles he's had... alot... I've seen him very hippie... to very clean cut and shaved to today with the hippie look revamped with the native Indian appeal which has always been a passion I believe to him... I do like him clean shaved and hair just a bit shorter... but actually it's all good...

Me too -- big time!
In addition to seeing all these pics for the first time, it's fun to speculate as to the when/where -- I am intrigued by the photo Gaston posted at 1:08 today of the outdoor gig w/Gregg & Dickey in it -- man what a photo. If I didn't know any better I might guess 7/28/73, by the way the crowd stretches away in the background, also the shirt Dickey's wearing is similar to the only other photo I've seen of the ABB at Watkins Glen, the well-known one of the band playing that was published in the Dreams booklet & several other publications.
It totally amazes me at how little has ever been written or photographed of Watkins Glen -- a magical weekend that slipped off into oblivion -- but, as Kirk West once said about 6/26/71 -- "it's all up here, it's all up here!" tapping his finger on his head.
Sorry, going off on a tangent as usual --
really enjoying these great photos.

Stephen,
I believe the first picture is from late 1972. In 1973 Dickey's hair is shorter.
I don't know if it's real, but the second picture could be from the Watkins Glen show. The original name of the pic is "db730727". That's a day before the show. There's a recording out there of the soundcheck...

Here's a picture of August 30, 1972...



[Edited on 8/12/2006 by Gaston]


Stephen - 8/12/2006 at 12:24 PM

Fuckin' A bro -- you may have uncovered a gem -- IIRC the Brothers were the first to do the soundcheck, they came on in the afternoon, as this photo would indicate, and played RMan, OWOut & IMOER -- then The Band came out & played a few songs, then the Dead played one of their seminal all time gigs -- played for the next several hours, past nightfall. Part of the Dead's soundcheck is on their So Many Roads box set of a few years ago.
Hopefully Mark Smith will take a look at this, he was there & knows a lot about that weekend.

Stephen - 9/24/2006 at 11:29 AM

Great ones (as usual) -- can't figure out who that ghostly face is in the first B&W one Gaston posted -- Frankie T maybe, althopugh it doesn't really look like him. Dickey looks so cool in that one -- guitar hero without trying to be.


susea - 9/24/2006 at 02:53 PM

Yeah..he did that a few days ago. I think Lana stepping in kinda gave him a kick start. Somebody had to. I pm'd him and suggested that he post something in the GB over there. He finally did. So far the only thing I've noticed is that he put the music back on. That's a start. We'll see if he does all the things he has promised.

Stephen, both pics are from 1977, Dickey Betts & Great Southern...
The drummer is Jerry Thompson... or Doni Sharbono.

You're right about that. Not too many people are happy with Adam. Me included. But we'll see if he does anything. So far the only positive thing I've seen is Lana stepping in. Wish she could take it over, but you know she's terribly busy. We'll see what the Spero kid does. LOL!

Totally agree there. It seems the ruckous that I stirred up a couple of weeks ago has developed into some changes. I had hoped that it would. But I really regret all the fighting that occurred because of it. I surely didn't intend for that to happen. And because of it some of my good friends here were caught up in it. But I'm trying to see the positive here and so far DB's site is seeing some good things.

Just want to clarify that I'm not taking credit for the changes. But it seems that the stir pot I created did get folk's attention and made more people complain about the stagnant site. If at all I can take credit for stirrin' it up! LOL!

I love the way Richard looks in this one. He looks like Jesse James! LOL!











Soooo cooooool!!



































Dickey and Dan hittin' the note!!


By far my most favorite picture of Dickey Betts!!!

So...there ya have it, folks! And these aren't all the pictures I have. Just a sample. I just love the Cat in the Hat!!


susea - 9/26/2006 at 10:17 PM

That last one is my fav too!


Stephen - 9/27/2006 at 12:50 AM

I meant to mention when it was posted before about that last one too -- right in the middle of playing the strings with his open hand, & how he's positioned & the sharp reproduction for sure make that a SLAMMIN' photo -- you know it's Dickey even though all you see is his hat!
Great spread Mitz -- 36 years of greatness.


rainy - 9/27/2006 at 03:07 AM

OMG Mitzi.... what a smorgasbord of pictures... it's a Dickey Feast.... lets see my favorite oh the 1st no-no, the 3rd no-no, the 10th, no-no... the last one ... it be the one for sure.. actually LUV 'em all

gina - 9/28/2006 at 12:19 AM

Ronnie probably would have a look like that hearing the others play. Duane, Allen and Steve Gaines, with Berry and Leon playing off each other, what that must sound like!

Gina good to see ya! I have no idea what you just said...but it's good to see ya!

Man -- sensational images -- love the 10/15 Picture of the Day -- must've been taken during a baseball game, by the look of those spikes. All the ones posted since, especially the two today, are awesome as well.
GREAT STUFF!! Thank you Mitzi & Gaston -- gosh I guess the first G in the GPG can stand for Gaston as well as Greggswoman!!
Forrest Richard "Dickey" Betts -- a true original in music -- nowhere more appreciated & respected than right here. What a pleasure to see these photos.

Hey Rainy, seeing double?? LOL! Too funny. Especially after the comment you made on Gregg's Thread!!

We can thank Gaston for that picture he found. I was thinking about it last night and if memory serves me right, I think that picture was in Rolling Stone Mag back in the early 90's. Not the 80's like I originally thought.


greggswoman - 11/3/2006 at 05:31 PM

That's either 1989 or 1990. I want to think 1989.

Well, Dad, that's a good question. We don't know because a certain administrator of Dickey's site won't give us any news. A bunch of us over there, me and Rainy included, have been tryin' to get the little $%^&* to tell us somethin'. Yet to no avail. I swear...I think we're gettin' the run around over there.


Stephen - 11/14/2006 at 01:59 AM

Dickey usually isn't too active during the winter months -- for the past several years (well, since the fax) he's toured from about May-September.
Nice touchups on Rainy's Roosevelt Stadium pics for the GPG Mitzi! -- they are sharper.


greggswoman - 11/14/2006 at 03:23 AM

Hey Stephen!! I can't take credit for the touch ups. Our buddy Twhitten5901 over at DB's site did the handy work. I just helped him get 'em posted.


rainy - 11/14/2006 at 03:31 AM

as far as Dickey going out again.. tour... can not wait... as Mitzi said , we have no info from the DB site...

Mitzi ...love the sharper images on pictures....Tom did a great job and thanks sweetie for re posting them... you are a living doll...


dadof2boys - 11/14/2006 at 07:20 PM

greggswoman--is it a management problem or is it a dickey issue?perhaps there are band or personal issues!? WHO KNOWS???!! i just hope they go on tour soon & that they sound as good as they did this summer @ beacon & @ the show from atlanta with phil lesh--dickey's set with phil's band is blowing me away!!!Also,while on a dickey riff & rant--wasn't he supposed to tour &/or sit in &/or play with willie nelson--i hazily recall that dickie may have sat in with willie once.........any info. would be most welcome!!

Don't get me started about his management. They are in a state of flux (or they're a bunch of f***s!). ROFL!! Either way, we're not getting any info. from the new site administrator (aka Dickey's manager's SON). Get my drift? So we don't know what's goin' on at all.

Dickey has often talked about working with Willie, they are very close friends. Willie did induct the ABB into the R&R Hall of Fame (and, the same night, made my Gregory realize he needed to get sober...Willie the Miracle Worker). I just don't know if Dickey has ever worked with him...recently anyway. I just don't know anything anymore...since the new site administrator is never around!


dadof2boys - 11/14/2006 at 10:19 PM

well,thanks for takin the time to reply


greggswoman - 11/14/2006 at 10:25 PM

Yeah...it's too bad. Dickey said he was going into the studio this fall, too. I'd like to know if he has or not. That would be awesome! Some news from the studio...a few pics...but I can only wish.

Stephen - 11/25/2006 at 11:04 PM

What pinch-hitting! (so to speak...) -- these are great ones blueskyJ -- is that Donna Godchaux in that group one? Boy what a great bunch that is -- how cool is it that Phil & Dickey hit it off like they do onstage -- Phil & Friends is every bit the talent of the ABB live -- bands like the Brothers, P&F, Panic -- it shows that music in the right hands is like fine wine, it gets better with age (of the musicians).
This website ROCKSROCKSROCKS...it's sort of like the Brothers -- when Warren or Derek can't make a gig, Jack Pearson steps in & the band not only doesn't miss a beat but in some cases (to these ears) takes it to another level -- Mitzi's computer is down but Rainy & blueskyJ step in w/these!
Thanks so much for sharing.
Hurry back Ms. Mitzi -- it's still not the same without ya!

This may have been somewhat awkward for Jimmy, being the one who replaced Dickey in 2000. But you know Dickey assured him that none of that had anything to do with him, and let's go have some fun (on stage).

greggswoman - 2/18/2007 at 07:50 PM

This is a quote from Dickey that I saw on his homepage. LOL!!

"We've always tried to remain a band of the people in terms of the way we dress and conduct ourselves. And that's worked out well for us; now that we're middle-aged, we're actually very fortunate that we've never had to rely on sex appeal. I'm over 50. I'm a good, strong man, but it would be ugly if I had to get out there in a pair of tights."

That's ok, honey. We'll take you just like you are.

Wonderful pictures as always -- the one of Dickey & Otiel is terrific -- & Dickey having a PBR!? The same brew that put such a pissed off look on the roadies' faces on the Fillmore East album cover.

The reason I am posting this picture here... is cause I can't remember where I wanted to put it... Someone made a comment regarding Duane Betts and I've looked and looked back to find it and I can't ... so I'm posting it here...
I have gotten great photos of Dickey through the years... but never one with him.. I did however manage to meet and get a picture with his lookalike son Duane.. a sweeter person I could not have imagined.... Great guitar player but has a lot of comparisons being the son of Dickey.... He has been playing with Puddle of Mudd ...hopefully he will be out with Dickey when tour starts up ... looking forward to that... My dream would be to have a picture with Dickey and Duane and of course me in the middle..

rainy - 3/28/2007 at 12:22 PM

Actually this Sat 31 is my first and only show at Beacon this year... I had to many other commitments going on during this time frame.

I am also getting ready for DB&GS... he'll be at Mohegan in May.... and also Westhampton in May, so it looks like I'm doing those shows... Not sure if he's playing Westbury.. and if he headlines I'll go...

Have any DB shows plans where your at ??? Hope so... wish we could meet one day at a show... How fun would that be


Stephen - 3/28/2007 at 01:42 PM

That'd be the coolest -- hopefully DB & GS will play at Hampton Beach Casino again this summer, that is a fantastic seaside venue -- same with the Cape Cod Melody Tent & the South Shore Music Circus -- I think last summer was his first time there (SSMC, which is in Cohasset) -- if I ever hit Megabucks (which I won't since I don't buy tickets! ) I'd pack up my mtn. bike, skates (rollerblades) etc and make a trip of it too all three venues -- I'll bet the places they play down your way are real nice too.


rainy - 4/2/2007 at 11:57 AM

Saw ABB on Sat 3/31..... I love the name of this topic and I'll leave it at that... I did make a comment on the Lamar thread Show Lamar some love... During an ABB's show they have always had a screen up whenever they can and show psychedelic's, mushrooms , colors etc..

During NO2RW they showed alot a pictures of Woody, Duane and maybe 2 or 3 of Berry and none of Lamar.... oversight ??? Lamar was great.... I think they need to add his picture up there... show some love and respect

A friend o'mine sent me a dvd, it's a compilation of Lynyrd Skynyrd (current band) videos.
There is a short segment of the 2005 Grammy's, Dickey Betts with Lynyrd Skynyrd and others, some kind of Southern Rock medley.

Dickey played Ramblin' Man, with Skynyrd!

And not only that, Skynyrd did Sweet Home Alabama... and Dickey sings the second verse!!! "In Birmingham they love the governor..."

And what a lineup that was! I know Andy and Pedro are still in.


heineken515 - 5/4/2007 at 02:05 PM

Allow me to apologize if this is not the place for this...but, I'm listening on Wolfgangsvault to Dickey Betts, Winterland 12.14.74...41 minute Liz Reed...anyhow, their writeup on the man and the band is pretty good, so here it is:


Dickey Betts - guitar, dobro, vocals
Jeff Hanna - guitar
Spooner Oldham - organ
Vassar Clements - violin
John Hughey - pedal steel guitar
Oscar Underwood Adams - mandolin
Stray Straton - bass, vocals
Bonnie Bramlett - vocals, percussion
Jerry Jumonville - alto sax
David Walshaw - drums, percussion
Jerry Thompson - drums
Leon Poindexter - acoustic guitar
Walter Poindexter - banjo
Frank Poindexter - dobro

By 1974, in large part due to Dickey Betts, Capricorn Records and the Allman Brothers Band were experiencing a success more lucrative than anyone could have dreamed. Betts, as a result, found himself free to pursue almost anything he desired musically, without having to worry about finances in the least. The situation allowed him to record his first solo album, Highway Call, and to perform with countless great musicians for the pure joy of playing, without any expectations of making money in the process. Over the course of the previous year, Betts had found a true, authentic voice, and had begun to distinguish himself within the ABB as a unique stylist, blending his love for country, bluegrass, western swing, jazz and rock into a style utterly his own - and one that would soon prove highly influential on all the Southern Rock bands that followed in the Allman Brothers' wake.

Betts’ Great American Music Show featured many of the players from his solo album, including the greatest fiddle player of his generation, Vassar Clements. Both the Poindexters and the legendary Spooner Oldham were also on board, and all these musicians combined to create a show that authentically traced the history of American music.

Betts begins this Winterland show by showcasing his more acoustic side, with plenty of tight harmonies, sweet picking and relaxed communication between the musicians. Several of the best new songs from Betts’ solo effort are included, including "Rain," "Long Time Gone" and the superb "Hand Picked." The classic instrumental "Hideaway," as well as Allman Brothers' favorites "Blue Sky" and "Southbound," are given this new treatment with great success.

Betts, Clements and the Poindexters then venture into historic American music and straight bluegrass for half a dozen songs, beginning with vintage material like "Old Joe Clark" and "Salty Dog," and closing with Vassar Clements raising the roof on "Orange Blossom Special."

The set's closer, for which the ensemble goes electric, is perhaps its most interesting and exciting moment. This 40 minute version of "Elizabeth Reed" has to be one of the most expansive versions ever played, and is almost beyond description. Everyone in the ensemble gets several chances to shine on this unbelievable jam. All the elements that influence Betts’ music are represented, from jazz to rock to bluegrass and back. This version literally has it all, and stays amazingly cohesive and inspired throughout. The audience demands more, and the band returns for an encore consisting of the obligatory "Ramblin Man" followed by another of Betts’ most requested numbers, "Jessica." This lovely instrumental showcases the inventive playing of this large ensemble, and ventures into new areas only hinted at in versions with the Allman Brothers.

This is one of the finest examples recorded of musicians playing for the sheer joy of music, with no egos or financial concerns getting in the way. Touring this type of show was destined to be a monstrous undertaking - and ultimately a financial disaster - but thankfully, for a brief time in 1974, none of that seemed to matter.

quote:
Allow me to apologize if this is not the place for this...but, I'm listening on Wolfgangsvault to Dickey Betts, Winterland 12.14.74...41 minute Liz Reed...anyhow, their writeup on the man and the band is pretty good, so here it is:


Dickey Betts - guitar, dobro, vocals
Jeff Hanna - guitar
Spooner Oldham - organ
Vassar Clements - violin
John Hughey - pedal steel guitar
Oscar Underwood Adams - mandolin
Stray Straton - bass, vocals
Bonnie Bramlett - vocals, percussion
Jerry Jumonville - alto sax
David Walshaw - drums, percussion
Jerry Thompson - drums
Leon Poindexter - acoustic guitar
Walter Poindexter - banjo
Frank Poindexter - dobro

By 1974, in large part due to Dickey Betts, Capricorn Records and the Allman Brothers Band were experiencing a success more lucrative than anyone could have dreamed. Betts, as a result, found himself free to pursue almost anything he desired musically, without having to worry about finances in the least. The situation allowed him to record his first solo album, Highway Call, and to perform with countless great musicians for the pure joy of playing, without any expectations of making money in the process. Over the course of the previous year, Betts had found a true, authentic voice, and had begun to distinguish himself within the ABB as a unique stylist, blending his love for country, bluegrass, western swing, jazz and rock into a style utterly his own - and one that would soon prove highly influential on all the Southern Rock bands that followed in the Allman Brothers' wake.

Betts’ Great American Music Show featured many of the players from his solo album, including the greatest fiddle player of his generation, Vassar Clements. Both the Poindexters and the legendary Spooner Oldham were also on board, and all these musicians combined to create a show that authentically traced the history of American music.

Betts begins this Winterland show by showcasing his more acoustic side, with plenty of tight harmonies, sweet picking and relaxed communication between the musicians. Several of the best new songs from Betts’ solo effort are included, including "Rain," "Long Time Gone" and the superb "Hand Picked." The classic instrumental "Hideaway," as well as Allman Brothers' favorites "Blue Sky" and "Southbound," are given this new treatment with great success.

Betts, Clements and the Poindexters then venture into historic American music and straight bluegrass for half a dozen songs, beginning with vintage material like "Old Joe Clark" and "Salty Dog," and closing with Vassar Clements raising the roof on "Orange Blossom Special."

The set's closer, for which the ensemble goes electric, is perhaps its most interesting and exciting moment. This 40 minute version of "Elizabeth Reed" has to be one of the most expansive versions ever played, and is almost beyond description. Everyone in the ensemble gets several chances to shine on this unbelievable jam. All the elements that influence Betts’ music are represented, from jazz to rock to bluegrass and back.

Thank you for posting the musicians list of this show! I have a copy of this, remastered by Capt Skipper... awesome!
Thanks again!

Yep, I Love Dickey Betts


heineken515 - 5/5/2007 at 02:45 PM

Yep, saw the show last night at Freebird. Someone else posted this setlist in another thread:

One Way Out
Long Time Gone
Liz Reed (with Duane's Tune intro ?)
Revival Blue Sky (don't know where it was in the setlist order)
Statesboro Blues
Ramblin' Man
Change My Way Of Living
Back Where It All Begins
Seven Turns
Jessica

and I believe this lineup is correct:

Dickey Betts
Frankie Lombardi
Pedro Arevalo
Duane Betts
Andy Aledort
Mike Kach
James Varnado

Duane is so cool...he deserves much cred for doing what he does. He can play a solo.

But the show is about Dickey, that old man can STILL ROCK. Blue Sky was awesome.

One Way Out too...man it was loud, glad I took my silly looking ear plugs.

I will go see this band any and every chance I get. The man deserves the living legend moniker no doubt. People can scoff or not treat him like the legend that he is if they choose, but it is not warranted, he is the man still without a doubt.

rainy - 5/5/2007 at 03:00 PM

Thanks 515... I 've been waiting to hear... The person that posted the setlist on another thread.. said that Liz Reed was great....but alot of others were train wrecks...WTF

I've been to opening shows for the ABB at Beacon and let me say not all are at top speed... They have got to get in the groove.. it all takes time... so although I want to hear how the show was for DBGS... being so critical right out of the gate......always concerns me... it just adds fuel to the negative attitudes about DB... I really hate that...
He's a Brother and your so right A LIVING LEGEND.... as Duane and Berry were.. but unfortunately they died... Dickey did not, Gregg did not , Butch did not, and Jaime did not. We are lucky they are all still alive and making music for us to hear .
I will also go see DBGS any time I can..when I listen to that music it is The Allman Brothers ... Can't wait for my turn..

I particularly like the B & W pix....I'll ask an idiot's question - were these taken on a digital cam or on an old school cam? I was just wondering if they were taken as B & W shots originally or what. Terrific work, and as a side note, lots of cool pix of Andy from this show also. Good work!!!!

Thanks Jim! I'm using a digital camera (Canon) and I change lenses as well. I use photoshop to remove the color - sometimes the b&W looks and feels better, so I experiment!

Something DB had said .. from his site... musta been a while back..

I’ll tell you the God’s honest truth, I’m not mad at anybody, I’m just disappointed. I didn’t want to see The Allman’s Brother’s Band end its history that way. I hope that those guys do well. I wish them the best. I just wish things didn’t have to happen the way... Sometimes things happen for the best, so I just have to wait and see. Things happen and things change. If there’s one thing constant, it’s change. So, it’s kind of a new era for me. I’ve got a bunch of younger cats working with me and they say, “What do you think of this tune?” and I say, “How about doing it something like this?” and they do the same thing with me so the music becomes more dynamic than I'm used to. There’s just a lot of enthusiasm and I've developed a new liveliness to my approach and I'm real happy and proud of what we're doing.

Dickey has always been one of my favorite guitarists and I would love to see him back where he belongs, jamming with the Brothers.....the music just ain't the same without him, although I do love the music from the current ABB lineup and Dickey's solo band. These guys aren't getting any younger and it would be nice if they could all bury the hatchet and get together again to make some music.....don't wait until it's too late and you regret it!

Not only that, Dickey wandered out to meet his fans several times between shows to pose for pics, sign stuff and shake hands. Glad I decided to make the trip

As I get older my birthdays seem to be more of a day of reflection than a day of celebration. So at the end of this day, my 48th birthday, I want to thank Dickey Betts for all the joy his lyrics, music, and shows have given me for 30+ years. Rock On Dickey!!!!

Today started off poorly. And the weather! Cold and gloomy. Running late, I jumped in my old pickup truck to take Jolie to day care and go on to work. I turn the CD player on and what was playin'?? Jessica. My spirit lifted...Jolie and I bobbed our heads in time with the music and we went on down the road...with smiles. Thank you, Richard.

i did
way back when the ranger was playin a prs and this was shot for an advertising campaign while dickey was endorsing them it was when betts was mad at gibson about something or other
it only lasted about a year or so and then he got mad at paul reed smith about some changes to the prs he was designing
i think he found a dot neck 335 that he liked about that time and was back on the gibson wagon
i think this was 94-95-96 i dont recall exactly
but that shot and several others were used in magazines and posters in guitar shops and music stores

heineken515 - 1/24/2008 at 07:46 PM

I was just listening to Dickey Betts Band 5.24.07 and during an organ solo, you can hear the crowd perking up and Dickey pipes up on the mike, something like "hey Mr. light man, we're trying to smoke some reefer up here, can you tone these lights down a bit"

I'm paraphrasing and I might have it wrong, but you get the idea.

Dickey is indeed still the man.

But I admit to being biased

Mitzi love all the photo's sweetie.. Oh and I read that Dickey apparently broke his wrist... and went on to play the show last night in Tampa.. What a Man...

Hey Rainy I'm doing pretty good these days. My knees are not doing so well, however. I'm seeing a new knee specialist Monday. So how are you, Rainy? Working hard, I guess. Something I don't do anymore.

Hello to all the Dickey lovers

It looks like Dickey and Devon are on the same bill for some concerts up in the NE area. Nice to see the names Allman and Betts together. Mitzi posted the shows on BD in the AG.

Last Friday night, Duane sat in with Leroy Powell and was off the hook. People were coming in off the street to hear him play - Harvelle's in Santa Monica was packed! Leroy has sat in with Dickey, so it was fitting to have Duane come and play with Leroy. I'll be posting photos now, and hopefully, a video later.

I do think that too.... Duane certainly has is own identity and style and chops to do it , have you seen him ??

The shadow he stands behind is huge , thou. He is respectful of his Dad and these last few years have been great learning tools for him , playing with his Dad... It's all history in the making.... Duane is on the edge of being explosive musically... he has been surrounded by great , great musicians all his life... but just in his Dad's band.. playing along side of Pedro, Mike Kach and now Andy Aledort.... it is just the very beginning of it all...

I wish him Good Luck in any future endeavors with music... I know he will be fabulous.. he's Dickey Betts son and named after Duane Allman...........

greggswoman - 9/27/2008 at 09:27 PM

Just sittin' here on the computer with the TV on behind me. All of a sudden...I heard that familiar piano/bass opening riff...and it was "Jessica". The movie is Field of Dreams. Been thinking of Richard a lot lately. I hope that wrist is healing...I really want to see him again, too. Kinda got da blues.

AWWW Mitzi.... I know what ya mean about havin da blues.. we all get'em... The good thing about 'em thou is once they pass.. you really appreciate Blue Sky days even more....

Yes, I think about Gregg and Dickey also... I wonder if they have ever spoken in these 8 years, privately just the two of them ????
It's all such a shame. Life is short , we are not promised tomorrow and today is just a gift... It's a simple thought with a Hugh meaning... Wished they would reconsider ..and do a few shows together ... Man, that would be sweet and prayers would be answered to all the ones who want that...

The Boston Horns with Barrence Whitefield take the stage at 4:30, Commander
Cody at 6:00 and Dickey Betts at 8:00. The event is scheduled to end at
11:00 pm.

The gates will open at 1:00. There will be a few venders selling crafts,

That's what it should be Sue (according to the weather forecast) -- not only that, but, the first snow might be visible on Lafayette that day!

Warren & Derek consistently challenge one another, maybe Dickey could add a guitar player that challenges him, someone better than he. Maybe then I would return to his shows.

Vince .... I appreciate your opinion on that... really I do.... But the Band he has together right now... is sooooooo good.. individual artists as well as a group banded together...
My wish is for you to see them ... when they are hitting the note... ya know , it happens to all artists sometimes ya do and sometimes ya don't... It's the same with the ABB right now.... not all shows are a 10.....


rainy - 10/31/2008 at 04:07 PM

dadof2 - 10/31/2008 at 06:43 PM

been listening to alot of Dickey stuff lately with ABB & GS,& Rainy,particularly the Blue Sky u-tube you posted & just to repeat what so many know--his tone & as EC says,his choice of notes,are truly unique.He has a certain blue sky sound,but then can get down & dirty,melodic,bluesy...most recently i've been paying attention to his jazz chords & the DB tone in that context...& of course,his acoustic playing is awesome--i realize most disagree,feeling it's a show "energy killer" but, i loved those acoustic sets at the beacon--if only people stopped talking LOUDLY through them so:YUP__Dickey is the man


lonomon - 10/31/2008 at 07:33 PM

dadof2 - 11/1/2008 at 10:57 PM

tonite,listening to cow palace 12/31/73--a monster show....& if ya love Dickey ...it's over at Wolfgang's Vault--clear,pure tone from the man--nice show


on Stormy Monday,the band is kick ass & Dickey's guitar sounds like it's slowly dripping out the blues

[Edited on 11/1/2008 by dadof2]


BIGV - 11/2/2008 at 06:13 AM

The Winterland show from Sept. of '73 has some of the most inspired playing I've heard from the Allman Brothers band, period. It is one of the nights where everyone in the band was, "Hiitin' the note"... Check out the interplay between Dickey and Chuck on the encore:

Blue Sky
Trouble no more>>
Whipping Post

Dickey's work on this version of WP makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up...to this day. At the end, I swear you'd think it was voodoo man, like they were trying to raise the dead. Dickey's guitar playing off the raw emotion of Gregg's vocals... give it a listen.


dadof2 - 11/2/2008 at 02:06 PM

listened to that one last nite too--i think i floated to sleep on the stunnig beauty of that 9/73 Winterland show...Dickey is off the charts...

Well now Dickey is a great guitarist ,but his actiuons as the band went further along were innappropiate. He is a frequent drinker and he has also broken Butch's nose twice. Dickey began to be a big problem that couldve broken the ABB up which is why they kicked him out. My point is made.

Most definitely! Lots of love to our Richard.

I had a wonderful dream last night. Don't worry it won't get me banned to tell it. LOL!!! Anywho, I was still living at my old house with my dad. My brother Walt came over one morning after partying the night before and brought some friends with him. I was in my room...still half asleep. LOL! My brother is quite a bit older than me. He's Dickey's age actually. ANYWAY, I heard him and his buddies talking in the living room and noticed that one of the voices sounded very familiar. I peeked out my door to see who it was......and there he sat on our couch...cowboy hat, sleeveless tee, jeans, boots...the Cat in the Hat himself. I got Walt's attention and called him over to my room, I was not presentable...bed hair and all. LOL!! I asked him, "Do you have any idea who that is??? That's DICKEY BETTS!! Do you even KNOW who he is?!?!?!" LOL! After that the dream really got weird...and I don't remember much after that. Something about an Italian restaurant. LOL! But I woke up in a good mood.

Love ^ for Mr. Betts

DB is the man! I went from 1975 to 1995 without seeing the ABB. I was ABB re-born that magic summer night, beautiful outdoor amphitheatre outside of Lincoln. Got it on tape. Dickey played his red 335 thru marshalls, the whole band that night eliminated any doubts I had wondering if they still had it.

Your welcome darlin'! I knew you liked that one.

has anyone here seen a copy of the DB & GS 5/11/09 NYC show....
i have sent many PM's to the one person listed as having recording the show but he has not responded at all in 6weeks of PMing).
I would love to find a copy for Honeyboy-Charles Otis (he's a friend of Jaimoe and a friend of Dickeys... Charles was backstage at this Dickey show)...... we would be tremendously grateful....

Always big ups to Dickey Betts
listened this morning to part of the Meadowbrook show from last week -- the guys sound fantastic, & in listening to it it's like -- I wonder if the band could sound like this with Dickey in it -- God only knows, but IMO had the guys approached him & said, let's hand it over to Gregg for this tour, let's arrange things the way he's hearing them -- Dickey would've been fine with it -- but again, who knows
Am Not Meaning To Start Anything -- the ABB sounds Very Nice in this Gilford show (thank you Jamie & wish I could've been there brother), & Always Big Ups To Dickey -- there is nothing bad to be found in this realm of Music we all love

Don't know the techy deal, but this one just blew me away..... was doing Sunday morning routine: coffee & internet.... was on the Les Paul Forum site, some silly thread about getting clean tones from a Paul, and some guy basically says screw all this talk, this is what it's all about and posts the link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1jpQu6qR1E

and it is 1991 Germany ABB Blue Sky

I file it in the holy bejeezus category myself....

the last couple of viewer comments were pretty cool.... one said the solo made them cry......


steadyhorse - 12/3/2009 at 03:12 AM

Awesome video Bird, thanks I've never seen that one before. Anyone notice during Dickey's solo that Greggs playing with a big old grin on his face about 4 minutes into the song.


Stephen - 2/13/2010 at 03:46 PM

That's what people would find out if he were at the Crossroads festival -- that Dickey is the man

This is a good read, it was written by Hank Gernhauser
It's headlined "ABB, Audubon Park, New Orleans, September 1971"

"I remember the Audubon Park free concert. It was one of many the Brothers performed after doing all-nighters at the Warehouse....
"It was the Sept. 1971 concert...that I distinctly remember Duane Allman marching up to the mikle and saying, "We're gonna play some country blues; and if you don't like that, you can march your ass right out of that door over there."

"I've seen, listened to and enjoyed many great guitarists. But I've never since seen two guitarists complement each other and so intertwined in the flow of music as Duane Allman and Dickey Betts were in those concerts. It was so free and so real. The appreciation of seeing them in the evolution of their artistic talent is a treasure to have witnessed."
