Or maybe not.

JC: I guess that especially applies to new songs?

BT: We would work up a tune that would make me learn a drum pattern I hadn’t played before. In the early stages, the pattern wouldn’t just fall into place, and I would start thinking about it. And the more I thought about it, the worse it would get. I finally came up with a trick. I would look at one person in the band I didn’t like – I won’t mention any names – and think about how much I hated his guts, focus 100% on that. The anger would flare up and my brain would shut down and quit thinking about what my body was doing. Then my body would just take over, the muscle memory kick in and I had all this rage. Duane [Allman] taught me as a drummer you can get angry and start flailing the drums, but it doesn’t come off as anger – it just comes off as power.

So, apparently Butch has hated Dickie from the beginning, and not just from when Dickey became the dominant and domineering leader of the band. Interesting...

This is very interesting information. It essentially says that the hatred of Dickey fueled his drumming, so therefore it was actually an integral part of the sound of the band and their success!

People can you feel it? Love is everywhere.
People can you hear it? Love is in the air.

I always thought good music evolved from the soul out of hate and animosity. Charles Manson wrote music!

Butch just can't let it go. He's spent his life playing the drums on so many Dickey songs and should be alot more thankful. He should really learn to just not say anything when it comes to Dickey. He's a great drummer but a very angry man. He's the only one with no post ABB career other than playing songs that he had nothing to do with other than being the drummer.

They say that forgiveness is giving up the hope of ever having a better past.

Sounds like Butch is still holding on....

It 's ironic that the only guy in the band to cop an a-hole rock star attitude is the eff'n drummer. Like he made all the difference. Sheesh.

Not much difference in Butch's sentiments and the stuff you guys are posting. What's with all the hate?

Just the effin drummer? Really? That's is a pretty ignorant statement. But I guess everyone is entitled to an opinion.

I happen to think Butch is a good drummer and knows when to play and when not to play.

I've played drums for a long time and really like the way he and Jaimoe play together. Not an easy thing to do without sounding heavy or contrived.

Well there's my opinion.

Fire away...

1.Butch just can't keep his angry,bitter mouth shut.Probably not healthy for Butch and unneccessary for the rest of us to keep hearing over and over.
2.that doesn't detract from the fact that his drumming is excellent,just the power needed to steer the freight train that was the Allman Brothers.
3.Dickeys silence has been admirable through the years.
4.Gregg is a wonderful musician and perhaps,one of the greatest blues,rock singers ever,but a follower content to trash Dickey in his book,but at least man enough,to publicly reach out to Dickey since the Brothers ended.
5.There are certain people here who trash Butch at every chance they get,even when he says or does nothing wrong.Just like Butch can't let it go,certain folks here can't let it go.But,at least Butch was in the band and directly involved-what's the excuse of the thrashers here who were never even part of the band who feel they gotta "represent" a position? That's really crazy...at least Dickey and Butch were involved...we're not....

Butch is a fine drummer. I like the way he plays too. He is not what made the ABB the best band in the land. I never left a concert listening the crowd talking about how Butch was really on that night. Yet he is the only one who has adopted the big rock star arrogance as if he's better than everyone else. He isn't better than everyone else. You never hear Gregg, Warren, Derek, Oteil or Jaimoe (or Dickey) speak with the vitriol Butch employs. He's a fine drummer. That's all.

LOL, well i don't think Butch is interested in changing the future so maybe he's looking for a time machine?

bands are not necessarily love fests between members. they are like coworkers, sometimes good friends, sometimes not. doesn't mean there's a good guy or a bad guy - just personal squabbles between each other. shouldn't detract from the work they do or music they make. i seem to remember another drummer that use to take out his hatred for one of his band members on the drums also...

Butch is no Mr Baker.

The only thing worse than Butch wanking on about himself is others wanking on Butch's wanking

Duane's stabilizing leadership was gone, the boys were left to their own devices
and it wasn't pretty. The bandstand only accounts for 2-3 hours of every 24.

I've always been thrilled when I meet my muscial heroes in person and they turn out to be exceptional people, Chris Whitley, Paul Rishell, John Jackson (RIP John!), and many others come to mind.

Then there are the **** s.

Seems stupid for y'all to go on about someone else's unforgiveness (cough cough)

If ya can't, this thread should go to the whippin' post.

NAILED it.

Having had the misfortune and displeasure of sharing an elevator (yes,the Butch elevator story again) with Butch the night the ABB played Blue Sky with Gregg singing it for the first time at the Fox in Atlanta in '04, I can attest to his "social ineptitude."

Anyone who wants to know more about that little elevator ride to hell can PM me....
