Jack Pearson Swaps Back With Derek Trucks

On Saturday, Allman Brothers Band guitarist Derek Trucks was standing up for a friend, serving as best man at his wedding. In turn, standing in his stead on stage was Jack Pearson who joined Warren Haynes on guitar for the Brothers at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL. Pearson is a longtime friend of Haynes, who facilitated Pearson’s two year stint with the group which began after Haynes departed the ABB in 1997. Pearson served as Dickey Betts’ guitar foil before returning to his own projects in 1999, yielding his stage slot to Derek Trucks.

It may be cool, but if I was there, I'd sure be disappointed

that's what I thought when I saw no Derek on stage, but at the end of the night, I was smiling ear to ear. The show really was that good. It's the third I've seen this year, and I gotta say I stick it in at 2, not as good as the 3/19 Beacon but better than the 3/18.

Jack is every bit as talented on slide as Derek. Different style but he is world class and as innovative as they come. Maybe Warren will have a wedding to attend and Jack can fill in for him. Now THAT would be a sliders dream concert.

Jack is good but a change from derek hearing that particular sound that Derek makes wth his guitar is something I really like to hear.

You can pick whichever sound you like an put it at this point.

"My favorite era was 97-99."
97 w/Warren & Allen, '98 w/Jack & Otiel, 99 w/Derek & Otiel.
Nothing wrong with that Chris! Those three years may well be the favorite years of many fans.
When I really listen to some of those shows (actually I don't have any from '97 but from previous Warren/Allen years), it sounds like the Allman Brothers to me -- same as now. I find the biggest difference to be the setlists -- the caliber of musicianship has always been there.

The setlists of the current lineup are the best ever. They mix it up so much. Each show has its own character.

Jack Pearson filling in would be a great show to catch. Warren and Jack play really well together. Love those shows Stephen was mentioning. He was kind enough to send me a copy a couple of years ago. Got me addicted to those few shows that Jack sat in for Dickey. Same setlist but Jack and Warren go in different directions every night. Jack didn't have time to learn every lick Dickey played so he just improved mostly. Which in turn brought Warren on the ride with him. I am sure the other night was the same.

I was at the Huntsville show and have to admit, after waiting for 20 years to get to see the band for the 2nd time, I was EXTREMELY dissappointed when they took the stage and there was no Derek.

Then they started playing and flat blew me away. What a show. The IMOER performance was worth the price of admission alone. I honestly didn't expect to hear it.

Surprisingly I have to say I enjoyed Skynyrd more than I thought I would. Might be because I've never seen them before, but it was a pleasant surprise. It was nothing comparied to what was coming though.

Herring and Pearson? Damn fine I can only imagine. i'd pay good money to see it.

If Jack or another player had not sat in there would not have been a Huntsville show. I love Derek and Warren but I would love to have been in Huntsville the other nite. Jack Pearson is just a phenomenal player in his own right. Listen to some of the Beacon Shows in 98. I truly believe he made Dickey step up or Dickey was gonna get blown away. I think some of Dickeys finest playing besides the 70's was with Jack. Dickey should have turned down the Marshalls

I've used this before but I describe Jacks playing as FLUID.

One of the best things I've ever heard was Jack playing "Highpockets" at the Cotton Club during GABBA last year. I'm still amazed everytime I listen to it.

I regret not going to Huntsville now.

Unless a bunch of people have been keeping secrets, Derek missed the one night and that was it. Jambands reported he was best man at a friend's wedding.

I'm a gigantic Derek Trucks fan ... but I feel like I was privy to something rare and special in seeing Jack with the band Saturday night. It was out of the ordinary, yet spectacular.

No, he will most certainly be there. Warren stated during the show that he was missing that one show and would be back the next night, which was Jackson, and he was there. No worries, people!
