I just got here so forgive me if this has been talked about before. I think it's time to get Dicky Betts back in the ABB where he belongs!

THIS IS NOT TO BADMOUTH WARREN OR DEREK, BUT THEY EACH HAVE MANY IRONS IN THE FIRE. I think Warren's writing and playing (on record) has suffered these last few years because he is spread to thin. (And how about this singing record he has talked about? Check out his work on the Memphis Horns lp.) It is possible to see that less can be more and better!

If this site is like most boards, I expect to be drawn & quartered but I had to ask the question,

Many will agree with you.

Many will not, believing things to be better than they've ever been (post-Duane).

Many will say things are not perfect, but are the best we can expect under the circumstances.

Many will argue for days on these very questions.

Welcome to the forum.

Edit: A handful of fools will get indignant about your misspelling of Dickey's name . . . oh, oops, sorry Wharfrat, I didn't see you standing there . . .

Yeah, most people are either going to ignore your post or get on here and be really mean...

I will not do either. You are entitled to your opinion and there are definitely others who will agree with you. I am not one of them, but I know where your coming from and respect that.

I'm sorry, but what you are hoping for is just not possible at this time. And most likely will never be possible. I'm not even sure Dickey coming back could even meet the expectations of anyone who would want to see it.

One thing that I point out everytime I get in this discussion is that Dickey was not "fired", he was mutually "suspended". It was HIS decision to not work with the band again. He was the one who said "I'm not coming back". So it's not really up to the band to "bring him back". First he would have to want to come back and then the band would have to agree that the problems of the past were resolved.

That being said, there are plenty of shows, tapes, albums, etc. to live in the past with.

#1. Obviously someone who has been here before but decided to register under another screen name just for today's discussion...fine if that's what you want to do, but why?

#2. If you are really THAT big of a fan you would know his name is spelled D-I-C-K-E-Y...pretty simple really. In fact it's written correctly all over the website. A little research goes a long way. As Rainy said, out of respect.

#3. Read Droogies post, that pretty much says it all.

#4. You do realize it's all out of our control don't you?

#5. I don't really have a #5 right now. LOL!

Oh yeah, Beacon Theatre '08! Has a nice ring to it...

That was just a friendly swat at my good brother and good friend Wharfrat, my Sister. I consider no one a fool.

"Dicky" played on Eat A Peach.

Never did figure that one out.

You think his record company could spell his name.
