From the Dickey Betts & Great Southern Facebook page:

We are very proud and excited to announce that the Allman Brothers Band was been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be presented to the band at the 2012 Grammy Awards, taking place on Sunday, February 12. Dickey Betts will be on hand to accept the award along with the other members of the band. This will be an exciting and historic moment that you do not want to miss!

You know this would be a great occasion for Dickey and the other member of the Allman Brothers to "bury the hatchet" as none of the orginal members are getting any younger. Basically let "bygones be bygones", knowing full well that there is no way that Dickey will ever once again be a "performing" member of the Allman Brothers (the band is pretty much Warren's, Derek's and Butch's band) again (but nevertheless, in my mind, he'll always be an Allman Brothers simply because of his histroy and past contributions to the band which no "true fan" of the Allman Brothers should every forget). With all that in mind, it still would be a good thing if Dickey could "sit in" with the band from time to time and maybe even have him and Great Southern be a part of the Wanee festival. One can only hope.

I've got my fingers , toes , and butt cheeks crossed that this won't be a one song-one night thing . I know the reality of the situation , but allow me the dream of my favorite band letting bygones be and kicking the world's ass again .

Hoping for a performance with Dickey, but I'd settle for some mutual civility, lol. If they did play, I wonder what song they would do (?).


Ramblin' Man!!!!

As I recall, the deal w/ this thing is that the award will be presented at a ceremony 2-11 and the telecast 2-12 simply mentions that it has been given. I doubt they play at all, but please let me be wrong!

Even if Dickey never plays with the ABB again, the four surviving original members of the Allman Brothers Band together again would be something to see
