I believe the band closed out in a fitting way. I don't expect a regrouped ABB anytime in the future. Certainly Warren, Derek, Oteil, and Marc appearing as guests with each others bands is and will always be great.

My greatest hope is that there are some recorded shows from previous periods that could still be released.
I'd love to have a crisp copy of a show from 75/76, 79, 89, 95/96/97, Jack Pearson shows, and Derek and Dickey shows. Lots of them out there to trade for, I know; but I'm thinking about something like the 9/26/73 show from the Brothers and Sisters Deluxe release.

After listening to tracks from the 10/24 show, I do not think they should retire. Take a listen and then see if you can honestly say they should retire.

Most of us have listened to it Gina. Gregg pulled something from deep within himself to make this happen. He cannot sing like this anymore on any kind of consistent basis within the framework of the ABB. Yes it is time for them to move on and they went out in style. It is over.

I have been to approx 30% of all of the shows at the Beacon. To say I am going to miss them is an understatement. I for one am upset that this is the end. Not asking for a grueling touring schedule, why not play the beacon and a couple of festivals every year. Yes Gregg is older. He forgets lyrics. He misses ques, Newsflash, this has been going on for 8 years now, listen to the tapes. I saw a Dickey show in the 90's where he couldn't function, aweful. I used to sit in first 3 rows then. tickets were available. That seat was 7500 on stubhub for Tuesday night. This band and the ongoing legacey will never be reproduced and there is nothing close out there. The demand is there, Come on Warren, Derek, gentleman. It isnt time now to call it quits. They are still hittin the note, We will let them know when it is time.

20 shows a year, keep it going, Beacon, Florida, Atlanta , we will come everynight. they are still that good. 70 years old, glad gregg is still alive, He said he will still be playing until they take off stage in a box, I for one love when he messes up, we are pulling for him. No one makes the Beacon or anywhere else howl like he can

so sad............what to do next year???

Any suggestions

Agreed. The problem with this "Why don't they just do 10-15 shows a year" idea, is that Derek and Warren want out. They are bored and want to move on with their own thing.....

Itts the right time,.. But Gregs not going nowhere .He will be performing with Friends as always ..They will get together for reunions ,they will guest star for each other . Greg and company will now get boat loads of money for playing together . . You forget how Greg has no problem starting tours he don't finish .. Money as always will dictate the future . Its why the Stones keep playing its why the WHO is doing there 50th year tour.. They al need that retirement money

True. I wouldn't be surprised if the ABB gets back together for the money.
