This tribute is to Dickey Betts a true musical Icon and Legend, it's also at tribute to his era with The Allman Brothers Band. He was a force as much as anyone in the band. I love Dickey and his music. I love the current version of the ABB. But there will alway be a special love for the "Dickey era" of the Band. Yes I would love to see him walk out on stage and Jam with them again, only time will tell if that will ever happen. It's a shame that things have worked out the way they have. That grown men can't sometimes put their differences to the side and work together again. But thats life and the way it goes sometimes. No to Guitarist played together like Duane and Dickey. I believe if Duane could he would look down and say" Alright you Cats, it's time to put the bullshoot to the side and get out there on that stage and play your a$$e$ off. Forget about the past and make those fans who love you happy even if it's for only one more time"

So this is my tribute to Dickey, I got the Bio from Wiki, i'm not sure if it's 100% correct. Thanks to Clay Pelland, SkyDogSys, ScotiaDave, and the others for the videos. I left out the negative parts from Wiki, I have heard enough of that. There is no reason to keep on and on with it.

Forrest Richard "Dickey" Betts (born December 12, 1943) is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter, most known for his work as a founding member of the southern blues/rock group The Allman Brothers Band.

Born in West Palm Beach, Florida, Betts's early experience was leading a band called The Second Coming, before he and other Florida area musicians met, jammed, and formed The Allman Brothers Band in 1969. Betts was the band's second lead guitarist, behind Duane Allman, and contributed significantly to their trademark dual lead guitar sound. He also wrote songs including "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Blue Sky" that became radio and concert staples.

After the death of Duane Allman in late 1971, Betts became the band's sole guitarist, and also took on a greater singing and leadership role. He went on to write such Southern Rock classics as "Jessica", and the Allmans' biggest commercial hit, "Ramblin' Man".

Betts's first solo album, Highway Call, was released in 1974, and featured the late fiddle player Vassar Clements. After the Allmans fell apart in 1976, Betts released more albums, starting with Dickey Betts & Great Southern in 1977, which featured the hit "Bougainvillea," which he co-wrote with actor Don Johnson. In 1978 he released an album entitled "Atlanta's Burning Down".

The Allman Brothers reformed in 1989 behind the release of their career retrospective boxed set "Dreams" and the growing populariry of Classic Rock radio. The reunion brought Betts back together with founding Allman Brothers members Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks and Jai "Jaimoe" Johanny Johanson. The band was augmented by Warren Haynes (slide and lead guitar), Allen Woody (bass) and Johnny Neel (on keyboards, though Neel left after several tours). This lineup of the band went on to release three acclaimed studio albums, with Betts, Allman and Haynes serving as the primary song writers, as well as several popular live albums throughout the early 1990s.

Betts had to be replaced on numerous tourdates throughout the mid 90s for "personal reasons" . Among the artists to appear in place of Betts were Jimmy Herring (in 1993 and again in 2000), Zakk Wylde (for one notoriously panned show), Jack Pearson and David Grissom. John Popper of Blues Traveler also sat in with the Allman Brothers in Betts' absence.

While the ABB continued to play acclaimed live shows during the 90s, they failed to release an album of new material following 1994's Back Where It All Begins. Haynes and Woody formed Gov't Mule with drummer Matt Abts (formerly of Dickey Betts solo projects) as a side project in 1994 and would leave the Allman Brothers for Gov't Mule full time following the ABB's annual Beacon Run in March 1997. Haynes and Woody would not associate with the Allman Brothers Band on stage again until after Betts' departure in 2000, though they would share the stage with Gregg Allman on several occasions with Gov't Mule.

Jack Pearson replaced Haynes on guitar and Otiel Burbridge replaced Woody on bass. Marc Quinones also had begun appearing with the ABB on percussion by this time. Pearson would tour with the ABB from mid 1997 through early 1999. Derek Trucks replaced Pearson on guitar in June 1999.

Betts was temporarily replaced for that tour by Jimmy Herring, formerly of the Aquarium Rescue Unit among other bands. Warren Haynes also appeared with the Allmans at three shows after Betts' suspension for the first time in over three years.

Betts quickly formed the Dickey Betts Band in 2000 and toured that summer. He now tours under the name Dickey Betts and Great Southern, which has recently added Dickey's son, Duane Betts, on lead guitar.

In 2005 Betts released the live DVD "Live from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame".

In the early days of the Allman Brothers, Dickey played a 1961 Gibson SG, which he gave to Duane Allman in 1971 to use as an all-slide guitar. Dickey then started to use a 1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. Dickey would become famous for using a Goldtop, naming it "Goldie". He has recently painted it red. Dickey has also been seen playing Fender Stratocasters occasionally, and has been an on-and-off endorser and player of PRS guitars.

Dickey's name and spelling has been disputed and changed throughout the years. Here is a chronology:

* 1969-Credited as "Dick Betts" in the jacket of The Allman Brothers Band self-titled album.
* 1970 1971 1972-Credited as "Dicky Betts" in the jackets of Idlewild South and Eat A Peach.
* 1973-Credited as Dickey Betts on Brothers and Sisters (although this may not have been the first time he was credited this way).
* 1974-Credited as Richard Betts on his solo album, Highway Call.

From then on he was known as Dickey Betts.

Was hoping to meet Dickey in Sarasota last week, but he didn't make it to the party. Met Duane Betts though.

Nice work Kenny.

Hey Kenney. I REALLY appreciate the effort you put toward this,and for recognizing Dickey's status as a legend in music,and especially with the Allman Brothers Band.
I hope and pray everyday I get another chance to see him play with the band he helped make great,and belongs with more than ANY other.
Thanks again.

Letterman says the "definitive American blues rock band".
Remember when that was true?

Many pleasant memories here. Thanks for the show. There was a very good vibe to Highway Call and Brothers and Sisters when people got together. This is in that same spirit.
