I am not so sure now that he is leaving the band. If he was, why wouldn't he have made a statement the same time Derek and Warren did? The timing would have been perfect, especially after Gregg misspoke about him?

I am pretty sure Oteil will probably move on, but I do find it interesting that there has not been an announcement made from his camp?

Maybe he never had any illusions about what he was, a paid session musician? Where Derek and Warren have bigger fish to fry?

I am sure Oteil will probably move on to Zac Brown, but I am a little surprise that if he was leaving, that he didn't throw his name into the hat when Derek and Warren did?

I suspect he made a decision to play with the ABB in 2014 and is just keeping his options open after that.

Why does anything happen in Allman-ville at this point? Who is planning anything? If the band is active after this year, I wouldn't count on Oteil sticking around.

He made a statement on January 1 on his website:

"Wow, what a surprise to wake up on the first day of 2014 to a wildfire in the rumor mill!

For the recordÖ. It was an amazing experience recording and playing with the Zac Brown Band and with Dave Grohl in November. It was an awesome time and a reunion of sorts for me with old friends Chris Fryar, Penn Robertson, and Eric Pretto (the drummer, bass tech and guitar tech for ZBB, respectively) who Iíve known for over a decade. I am proud to be part Zacís record.

2014 will mark the beginning of my 16th year with the Allman Brothers and as we celebrate the bands 45th anniversary, it reminds me what a huge part of my musical life this incredible band has been. Iím really grateful and proud to be such a big part of the ABB history. And we ainít done yet!

I certainly hope to work with the Zac Brown Band again in the future. They are incredibly talented and great guys. Wherever I land in the future, I hope my fans understand that my primary concern is for the wellbeing of my family and will continue to bring you the highest level of groove and improv that I can muster.

Peace, Love & Happy New Year!"
