Since we only hear news of our favorite band these days via rumor and social media, I thought it might be fun for us fans to create mis-information on our own. I'll start.

I just heard that Oteil is joining the NASA program and will be the first musician on Mars. The US government is so impressed with Mr. Burbridge that they are creating a new title: Basstronaut. They are even considering changing the acronym of the space program to BASSA - if it's okay with all the fishermen of the world.

Gregg phoned me to ask if I'd like to sit in on guitar for a few shows next year. Details to follow as they become available.

Since Derek & Warren broke up the ABB, I heard Butchie & Dickey are putting together a Vegas act.

Isn't this thread what every thread on here evolves into anyway?

I did hear the new lineup for the band next year is actively looking for a keytar player.

I just got this from a source close to the situation...Gregg will be joining Piers Morgan as his sidekick on CNN.

Remember, you read it here first! Dickey to confront Butch on an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil. Topic: cyber-bullying vs real life, honest to gosh bullying in the 21st century.

Gregg and Butch will open a public relations firm post-ABB. It will be short-lived.

Rumor has it that nobody is leaving the band.
It was just a marketing scheme to sell tickets faster and make lots of dough in 2014.
They'll all be back next year - same line up, same ABB!
I can dream, can't I?


Also, there will be multiple autograph signings every night before each Beacon show around 6:30 pm at the Fairway market across the street from the Beacon. This will include the guests of the evening. (contact absnj for details)

I guess I am wondering how Derek & Warren leaving would get announced in any more formal way than a press release? I don't agree it was a rumor that surfaced that one. In fact, I'd argue there were few/no rumors about it in social media which is why it came across as a shock to many.

Warren and Derek realized it would be a big mistake to leave the ABB so will be staying indefinitely. Public announcement will be made after additional Beacon shows have been announced and tickets are sold out.

I thought this was a thread about creating mis-information.

Tim, the first words heard by most on this site came through DerekFromCinicinattis' original post. Very soon after that, we were directed to an announcement by Warren on his page. There has yet to be any announcement on the home page of this, the official fan site of the Allman Brother's Band.

But that's all good ... now. The information has now been spread via various media outlets. But the first, and the most word(s) about ...whatever is happening with the band has come largely via word of mouth and internet.

Like I said, it's all good. It's even starting to border on hilarity! Thusly, I thought it would be self-entertaining if we just ... entertained and amused ourselves at this point.

It's just a joke. Maybe not a great one, but a joke.

Sorry to be the bringer of more bad news:

March of 2015, Cirque de Soleil will be back at the Beacon
starring Pee Wee Herman
He will be wearing a tu tu for most of the show and riding a bicycle on a high wire.
He also drops his pants at the end of each show and moons the audience.

Rumor has it, anyway.

I heard this one! Afterward, PeeWee will reveal his hidden talent as a slide guitar ace - joining the thought to be defunct Allman Brother's Band for one final Beacon set. Guests to include Dickey Betts, Eric Clapton and the resurrected ghost of Elvis hisownself.

Unlimited FREE BEER!
will be given out at all ABB shows in 2014, including festivals, courtesy of the band as a thank you to their loyal fans.

Expect bathroom lines to be long and uncomfortable.

Or, at least that's what THEY say.

Fine print on each ticket to read: restrooms closed during majumbah (or whatever that title was).

LOL - Ja-Bu-Ma (Jaimoe, Butch, Marc) ** pissing in the aisles is also not permitted unless you re-use the beer cup and put a lid on it.

It just recently came to light that 20 years ago Gregg had sex in a van before an ABB show with an extremely hot Latina model from Veracruz, Mexico who spoke no English. Her son from that liason, Jefe Calderon, has turned into an extremely hot Latin rock and blues guitarist. Gregg owes her untold hundreds of thousands in child support. Since Gregg is looking to change the direction of ABB anyway, he decided to strike a deal. Calderon can take them off in a more Latin rock direction, mostly because of the influence of Carlos Santana's Father who Calderon started playing with at the age of 14. In exchange for Jefe's new ABB position, his Mother, Serena Calderon, has agreed through an attorney to drop all demands for child support.

The SIT-STAND-DANCE debate has been settled.

The ABB silence sounds like a plan
