Regarding Dickey:

"I canít ever see a situation where we would even feel obligated to invite him again. Itís enough. Thatís run its course. Thatís not going to happen again. "

Ouch.

Oh well.

Nothing new, although most of the public name calling has come from Butch's direction. I don't recall Dickey publicly throwing any of his old band mates under the bus. And don't get me wrong I'm not taking sides here.

See Luke there are a lot of things we agree on.

Once again, we see that Butch Trucks is just a class act. Oops, sorry, I meant to say ass hat.

hey guys,

even as a huge dickey fan, i don't mind butch's comments. butch has never changed his stance, opinion or statement about DB. and the reason we get these quotes is because he's man enough to address it every time he gets asked. i may not agree with it, but i respect that he answers a tough question with a like it or not statement. i wish all artists were so honest.

and he's right - DB was invited and declined. i can't think of another reason to invite DB unless it was a finale tour.

I would not take exception if Dickey was slinging mud too. I've looked and I can't find any incidents of Dickey taking public shots at anyone in the ABB, certainly nothing even close to recent. I wouldn't have a problem with Butch answering a guestion when asked, but he seems to manage to always slip in some comment about Dickey having "serious problems" and even worse, as in this statement. Bottom line is that Dickey is certainly not the only current or former ABB member to struggle with substance abuse problems. But those are things that should be kept private. Butch has slammed Dickey on multiple occasions in just the past year or so. For whatever issues Dickey may have, he certainly seems to handle the subject of his departure from the ABB with dignity and class. Butch continues to use every public forum to go beyond simply answering a question about whether Dickey was invited to the 40th anniversary shows to slip in a personal dig at Dickey. Butch would be wise to follow Dickey's example and just STFU. He just comes off looking like an old, angry a$$hole.

I agree.....Besides, Butch doesn't seem to be the only one who states the obvious about Dickey. I think it's pretty well known that Dickey's a pain in the ass to live with (which is what life on the road is like for an active band).

I agree weallen ... I also think Butch's biggest problem with DB.. is how Dickey is still a partner with the ABB and makes quite a bit of $$ money $$ ( oh la la ) on those DB compositions , and has invested it wisely... maybe Butch hasn't been so sharp in that dept. I know I won't be moogising.... But, I sure as heck will buy anything with Dickey Betts name/music attached to it. If Butch would have kept his mouth shut and dealt with his personal problems with DB like a man , he would't have send out a hundred emails subjecting people to borderline harassment on getting in on moogis, he would not be able to keep up with the subscribers for his moogis had they buried the hatchet, they would have all benefited from it. Dickey Betts is a very smart man and has chosen to walk away with his pride and dignity in place , regardless what most of you believe , that DB has all kinds of drug and alcohol dependency problems... that is coming from the person who is the most bitter in this split and he shows it in every opportunity he gets... He can not help him self. Even now..

I think Butch feels he has to defend the decision to keep Dickey out of the band. when the topic arises, it puts Butch on the defensive because the presumption would be that Dickey as an original member should be in the band. So there has to be a reason to keep him out and Butch feels obligated to put it out there.

You know if he didn't "sling mud" the rumor mill would come up with reasons far worse.

I think the problem doesn't lie with Butch, but with interviewers who continually revisit it, and posters here who continue to beat on it. Butch could just say, no comment, we've addressed all this before, but that's evasive and uneccessary.

Haven't been posting here lately because I finally decided it was hypocritical of me to. I had rationalized posting prior by telling myself this was an all inclusive, all era ABB site. For the most part it is purely a Post Dickey era atmosphere where not preferring or, My God, not particularly liking this latest and evidently last ensemble called the Allmans is not well recieved and that makes sense really. So no big deal, I am not out to offend.

Not out to offend

Why can't Butch try that attitude?

Since Dickey retired, I could almost accept to a degree a post Dickey lineup, but you know, maybe it is the old hippie values thing... but I need to believe in a band. Even if this lineup was my cup of tea, I would never, in my life, get behind a band whose self appointed new spokesman is Butch, full of vile attitude, hate, and bad mojo.

Makes me miss more the Duane era, when Duane was the leader and spokesman, and he was SO full of class and proper manliness and dignity, and brotherhood, and consideration for human beings.

had to write something, BT's words made me just want to come on here and cuss him, but I try manners for a change.

Thanks Butch, I needed a bl;ood pressure rise on an otherwise great day

"Weíre spending a fortune on lawyers to do this, but weíve been at this too long and been screwed for too long, and if we have to play a few extra shows to pay for the lawyers, so be it."

See, lawyers can bring about something positive, more shows.

I really though all of these bull$hit threads would end with Dickey's retirement but I guess that was wishful thinking. Dickey is retired people and hopefully enjoying his retirement whether sober or not. The ABB are still rocking out at an incredible level. Those who want to deny themselves the joy of the current band don't have to go and don't have to subscribe to the bargain of Moogis which I am very grateful to Butch for. Time to stop all of this nonsense people. It has been documented over and over again. For what ever reasons Dickey and the rest of the original members of the ABB do not like each other or get along. They are not gonna reunite and shouldn't be expected to perform with someone they don't get along with. Forcing people onto a stage to play with eachother when they don't want to won't create the atmosphere for making good music IMO.

I do wish Butch would just give a 'no comment' when asked about this from now on. No need to keep pi$$ing on Dickey now that he is retired and 10 years have passed.

Good luck to Dickey in his retirement and long live the Allman Brothers Band!!!

I'd argue that making the same complaints over and over again would be what seem bothersome to most, and I am not saying that you do that. I am a big fan of the Rolling Stones, and I irritated the **** out of many Stones fans by constantly complaining along the lines of "No matter what anyone says, these guys don't sound as good without Mick taylor." Eventually people were able to get through to me that I was saying the same thing over and over again, and that I was basically signing on to a Stones site to complain, complain, complain, rather than have insightful discussions about a great rock band.

I think an insightful discussion of any of Dickey's playing would be fine here as long as it did not become a thread about "how lame the current line-up is," etc. I imagine everyone here loves AFE, EAP, etc., no? What's not to love?

Yes, you have, and always in response to another episode of Butch attacking Dickey publicly. And we continue to hear the same crap from Butch again and again and again. Dickey hasn't been in the band for almost a decade. When Butch decides to stop the public personal attacks on Dickey, then it will no longer be fodder for public discussion. Until then, it remains open for public discussion. Butch seems to be obsessed with keeping it festering. I don't hear any of the other members taking shots at Dickey, only Butch. It appears that the one with "serious issues" is Butch Trucks.

I know... isn't that how you act out when your in love with someone who no longer loves you and has moved on.. The one still in love... is still bringing it all back to the top. Has to rehash it all... and show , why he is the worthy one to love... Oh Dear... my , my..

Saying nothing .. always is so much more interesting , Butch... I might actually listen to you.. if you would Please be quiet around Beacon time... keep all your private thoughts about other / former members of the band to yourself. It's a winning combination, you really should try it.. after 10yrs and all the same stories... your boring...
