I'd rather hear Derek handle all of the slide. Period.

But as long as one of them plays all of the slide parts, that's cool...both of them doing it on the same version is a little too much, it isn't a contest.

To my ears, Warren plays it more in the spirit of Duane, and he defined it.

great question..tough choice...

I remember hearing Warren play slide for the first time and my immediate thought was"holy crap this guy rips and really has the spirit of Duane:...

I remember hearing Derek for the first time and my thought was "there is nobody that sounds like that"..

they bring different strengths to the song, for sure...

a little off topic, but man, am I the only one that believes that Warren saved this band twice ?

either is good...
and having to make that choice is a great problem..

Doesn't really make a difference to me. Both guys put there own stamp on Stateboro.

Frankly I've heard the song so much that maybe Gregg or Oteil on the solo would do something for me moreso than Warren or Derek for that matter.

I like it when Warren takes Duane's part. Feels much more like the original.

I like Warren especially on the opening because it incorporates Duane's licks. Derek seems to ignore what I hear as an integral part of the song. Other than that it doesn't matter as long as Warren plays the opening.

I generally prefer Derek on slide and straight guitar.

Warren definitely saved the band after Jimmy left. He was really the only one that could have done this.

In 1988 though Warren was just another great guitar player in Nashville and everyone knows courtesy of John Sebastion how many of those there are. The break for Warren was Dickey asking Warren to join his band. The next break for Warren was Dickey asking him to join the Allman Brothers. Warren built his career from this. Personally I think in 1989 the Allmans would have been just as successful, and maybe more so, had they brought Chuck back in on piano.

A toss up...love both Derek and Warren playing this song. (provided those are the only choices). Each of those guys have their own interpretation, both excellent.
Warren did not save the band. The 'Band ' saved the 'Band'.

I completely and totally disagree. It was the re-creation of the passion of the Duane era that Warren brought in 1989.

i like the version with dickey and warren from the great woods dvd. it was a nice way to mix up the song. it had a great new way to introduce the dickey solo too. allen really, really brought the thunder on that one.

I'm with ya Doug. Dickey knew he found a missing piece with Warren (and let's not forget Johnny Neel either for that matter.) Besides being a killer guitarist and pertfect foil for Dickey, Warren also brought Great background vocals, lead vocals, songwriting, and a passion and spirit that had been missing. All these talents would become much more obvious to the fans as Warrens carreer progressed. In all honesty Chuck's carreer is highlighted by the Brothers and Sisters album. I know ... I know ... Sea Level, BHLT, Clapton's Unplugged, but ... his tenure with the Stones, much like Ron Wood's, is a total waste of his talent. I guaran-damn-tee he's paid well but ... I truely feel that Warren has many more wonderful things to offer us although maybe a break would do us all some good too.

I really like the versions from the mid-90's with Warren, he really ripped it, but Derek really puts some new fire into "Statesboro Blues". Just like with "Dreams", if I'm at a show and Warren plays slide on "Statesboro" I'm a little disappointed that it Derek didn't because his take is so fresh and has more fire - I always feel like I'm going to hear something new, but Warren's licks on those songs haven't changed in 20 years.

I don't remember exactly why I picked up "Seven Turns" in the early 90s but as soon as "Gambler's Roll" played, I was hooked and have been ever since.

Nothing against Warren - when I first heard him in 89 or 90 I was floored, but I'd rather hear Derek.

I'd rather hear Warren do slide and Derek leave the band myself.

Lefty is right. Warren saved this band twice, without him we wouldn't be on this site.

I'll vote for the variety - old Duane versions are all killer, Warren lights it up, and Derek's approach is always fresh - a great tune made fresh each time!
