I'm new to this board so you may have discussed this already. I got the new ABB @ Macon City Auditorium cd and love it. And I know it's a concert by the 5 piece version of the group, but during "You Don't Love Me" at around 2 minutes and again at around 18 minutes through to the end of the song, there is a second guitar. Anyone know who it is? Did someone sit in that night on that song? Thanks.

You'll have to dig through this thread and the guestbook, but you're right, that was discussed. If I remember correctly, no one is quite sure who that was. Even Red Dog was not sure.

I was speculating this past weekend if it might have been Berry playing up on the neck of his bass

I swear I heard Gregg mention Alex Taylor's name early in the show...

It's definitely not Berry (it's a second lead guitar, in the opposite channel to Dickey, IIRC) and it's unlikely to be Alex Taylor, who wasn't a soloist as such.

I forget who was playing lead in Alex Taylor's band at the time (it's probably in the "new archive release" thread, or whatever it's called), but the chances are that it's him - whoever it is does a damned fine job, but doesn't get enough chances to shine, unfortunately.

If I remember correctly, the speculation on the thread here back when it came out, and on a couple of other discussion sites, produced these possibilities...

Alex Taylor
Les Dudek
Johhny Winter.(he played on Atlanta Pop)
Tommy Talton(he played on Greggs live solo double LP)
Elvin Bishop
Paul Butterfield

Or perhaps even Gregg - you will notice that when there is a second guitar playing there is no co-incident keyboards

On the 2nd guitar mystery some of the other "possibles" to add on to D29s list would include Jimmy Nalls who played guitar in Alex's band which was touring and opening for the Brothers, Ricky Hirsh from Wet Willie, Dru Lombar from Grinderswitch (although didnt sound like him) Scott Boyer (Tommy Taltons partner from Cowboy) or even Larry "Rhino" Rhinehart from Capt Beyond (& Iron Butterfly) as far as possibles go, who were most likely available in that Macon/Capricorn stable environment during that time frame. I think Ole Coot verified it wasnt Les Dudek some time back. My personal opinion is still Jimmy Nalls.

One thing for sure....it's a great CD of music from the Brothers, who were doing the absolute best they could in the wake of the loss of Duane. The playing was just as tight as ever, the loss of Duane was very evident, but you have to give them kudos for playing their hearts out in the fallen brother's memory. You can FEEL the emotion from the surviving five....

I wonder if anyone has asked Gregg, Dickey, or Jaimo who it was?

I dont recall Gregg ever playing lead. I know he has played rythmn electric guitar sometimes, and he is a pretty good acoustic guitar fingerpicker.

Gregg played a taste of Mtn Jam Solo on a Telecaster (I think) during Johnny B Good on the Dick Clark All Star Band in the late 70s. Blew the crowd away Well it did at our house anyway!
