Simple. Don't show up.


Thanks for your advice but instead I think I'll just take a piss while the grown ups let them noodle around.

Ok, this make not be worth anything, but a guy I work with told me that tonight's guests (Thu 3/12) will be Trey and Page from Phish...he also told me that the guy who gave him this info got his info from someone else a few weeks ago...see below...given that this "source" was right on for the first two nights, it will be interesting to see if his other info is correct as the run goes on...note Clapton is slated for not just one but TWO nights(!!!)...here is what I was just sent...if nothing else it is more grist for the rumor mill I guess...

My original source has now posted this:

The guy sent me this info two weeks ago and he is right on so far. Here are the other sit-ins:

3/09 - Levon Helm, Taj Mahal
3/10 - Johnny Winter, Los Lobos
3/12 - Trey & Page
3/13 - Boz Scaggs
3/14 - Chick Corea, Lenny White, and possibly Stanley Clarke
3/16 - John Hammond, Bonnie Brownlett (or something close to that)
3/18 - Sheryl Crow
3/19 - Clapton
3/20 - Clapton
3/21 - TBD
3/23 - TBD
3/24 - Billy Gibbons, Sonny Landreth
3/27 - Gary Rossington, Ivan Neville, possibly Kid Rock
3/28 - Weir & Lesh

LOVE HOW 26 IS EMPTY. FOR THE TWENTIETH TIME I DON'T REALLY THINK IT WILL HAPPEN, BUT IF DICKEY SHOWS THAT'S THE NIGHT

if this runs true to prediction, I have no qualms about saying that I am totally underwhelmed.
With the exception of Eric Clapton, I'd rather just hear the Brothers rip it up w/out any special guests. "Kid Rock" would be enough to make me leave. Weir and Lesh are like watching concrete dry, and somebody tell me what Trey Anastasio has to do with brother Duane.

I can't wait for the West Coast shows, where I can just close my eyes and listen to the band transport me to another place, without all the fanfare.

I understand the ICON value of Clapton and all, but for a great time, I would think that Billy Gibbons and Sonny Landreth onstage with the ABB could be pretty freakin' firey!!! The RTF guys might make for a real interesting night too -- I'd love to hear an Afro Blue and In a Silent Way -- or EGYPT -- with them.

Actually, Phish has been playing ABB tunes as early as the mid '80s. As far as a connection, most of the 'modern' (which I guess means ~45 yrs old, bahah) players have generally played with Warren in the past - and I feel he's the pull here. There's a excellent video with Trey and Warren together on youtube....an ~8 min. discussion of improv music, and then some really nice musical interaction. Phish is not up for discussion here, but 2 of their most accomplished musicians are - no noodles this weekend in Hampton, and Page was clearly the MVP during their 12 hours of performances - I'd love to see either of them tonight or later down the road.

You know, BIGV, I thought I would be the only one to think that. I know there are a lot of shows left, and Taj and Levon were nice surprises (which I unfortunately missed by a day), but with all of the hype about guests, this list doesn't seem any more incredible (save for Clapton, if that does happen) than any other year. That could be just because they have always managed to get great guests over the past few years, but I was expecting the Muscle Schoals rhythm section, Talton/Boyer, the Kingpins again or something, not Cheryl Crow and Kid Rock. I'm just speaking about the guests, the shows are still about the band, that's why I bought tickets and I'm still looking forward to them blowing the roof off of the place.

A) Allmans + Phish = Cringe

B) Allmans + Phish = Jump Off Cliff

C) Allmans + Phish = All The End Of World Prophecies Were Right

I can't decide.......................

Personally I would take the guys from Phish by a landslide over Gary Rossington and Kid Rock. At least Trey and Page can flat out Jam. Also, although I do have lots of respect for Johnny Winter, he has been one of the few Beacon guests over the years that actually brought the energy level down a notch or two. He may have been a good player in his prime, but his best days were long ago and can no longer hang with guys like Derek and Warren. Johnny and Dickey might be a good fit, but he's not good with The ABB. I feel very badly for his condition, but he just doesn't cut it in a high-level Big band situation like the Brothers. I would gladly take a few songs with John Scofield, Robben Ford, Jimmy Herring or Larry Campbell waaaaaay over Johnny Winter at this point.

"The 80's?".... ""Warren is the pull here"...I was under the impression that this run was to honor Brother Duane!

The Eighties?...Once again, Somebody explain the connection of Trey (the noodler) Anastasio To DUANE ALLMAN

....probably the same as other guests during these few weeks - not much. A tribute to Duane, yes, and I think it would be ridiculous to think that there's going to be zero degrees of separation to that point during the course of events. Boz and Clapton are no brainers. Trey - not so much, but I think he stands as a pivotal guitar player for the current generation, and understands the history.

I wouldn't put TA anywhere near Derek or Warren in regard to being a pivotal guitar for the current generation. Phish are a marginal cover band at best.......

That may be, but as an Allman Brothers Band fan since 1972-73. Trey Anastasio has as much value to me as the Peso. Zip. Nada. "If" I wanted to see and hear this "pivotal guitar player for the current generation" as you put it.."noodle"..I'd fork out the $$$ and go see Phish.

And I know, It's more room for you....lol.. But if Trey came out after I had paid to see the Brothers... I would boo, then exit.

Sorry to be a kill-joy , but the special guests seem to be drawing more interest and speculation than what dusty gem might be revived and worked back into the set lists . Don't misunderstand , I'm a fan of almost all of the guests , and realize that they show up at the Beacon because of long-running association with the ABB . But I'm hoping the whole "Who's gonna show up tonight ?" thing has lost all of it's steam by the time Wanee rolls around .

I guess I consider myself to be an ABB purist , and look forward to what THEY might do to excite the crowd rather than bring someone in to make things interesting .

Someone walking out to play with the band on nearly every song has lost almost all of it's appeal to me . It's almost become a distraction . Sure , if I were a musician asked to join them for a number I'd jump at the chance ! But I'm not . I'm the dude saving my pennies right now to get through the gates at S.O.S. Music Park on June 5th .

I'm a big fan of improvisation , but not so much top-notch guys like Haynes having to direct traffic while on stage . I'm 100% sure no one cares for my .02 , but these are just some thoughts I've had since the who's who hype started some time back . Allow me this ... Would you rather hear All Night Train again , or The Weight w/ so and so on 3rd or 4th guitar ?

I would love to see Trey - I think he is a MONSTER player, and Phish is certainly the most iconic of the jam bands that were so inspired by the ABB and GD.

That being said, I'd still prefer Mick Taylor.

'nuff said 8-)


From my favorite Boz album!

Along with "...Dime", I'm hoping for "Time"!

Or even the sweetness of "Sierra"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDeTu6rpN-4&feature=related

IMO, Boz is one of THE GREATEST vocalists of our time, with a voice as smooth as silk!
