yeh,Dickie's such a polarizing figure in NY,(I notice there's sorta like Dickies camp & ABB camp) which is why I thought it be perfect for him to show up at the Beacon.I agree,solo,he probably mostly sucks.But with the full on ABB he'd probably play his ass off once more..& he did create sum of the most melodic songs ever written.Its almost like he's 2 different people,(mean sob & creative genius).He needs to play it out 1 more time & I couldn't think of a more appropriate place to do it.He just needs to hop on a plane,swallow some pride & do it.(and yeh,hopefully its the creative genius who shows up)After all ABB was over 20 yrs of his life too.

if Dickey showed up, which won't happen, he might get a 10 minute, or longer, standing ovation

His name is spelled "Dickey" if you are going to post about the man at least spell his name right.

haha,like I said,Dick's a polarizing figure in NY.(Sorry,Dickey)
Maybe you're right..he'd never show up..but one can't help thinking people could get over things eventually.
And there absolutely would be a lengthy standing ovation in NY.

X2

After all these years on the site, it amazes me reading about "Greg" & "Dickie". Maybe Greg & Dickie will be forming a band.

I've seen Dickey do some pretty unpredictable things in the past.He may still have 1 or 2 surprises left in him.I for one would love to see him play "High Falls' 1 more time with the Allman Brothers and see where it goes...

About time someone figured out how to SPELL Dickey's name right. He's not showing up and believe me he won't make the first call. Not after all the **** Gregg and the little drummer boy has said about Dickey over the past 14 years.

Dickey spelled his name about four different ways in the early years, though I don't think Dickie was one of them.

Another thing to think about here is whether there's any honor for Dickey in coming on stage. Dickey led the band from 1972 until 2000. He was the man. Sometimes he was an ornery man. But he was the man. I think it would diminish him to be a "guest" at an ABB concert.

true,but hopefully Richard (Dickey) realizes that Duane was the only real Leader of ABB (through his inspiration & plans for the band)...& that he & Greg were put into an awkward position when Duane & Berry died.They all were,he may not have really wanted it anyway.

If Dickey didn't get called this weekend or did and just didn't show up with Gregg out then everyone can finally rest assure it is done and never ever gonna happen. Don't blame him but I was still holding out hope on Saturday and when I walked out of the Beacon I knew what I already knew. I will never see Dickey play in the band he helped take to the top of the mountain.
