Got this from a brother who's more insane about music than I am, and he's never thrown me bad info before, so here goes for what its worth, do with it what you want......

one other thing, another taper from the
dickey show at mulcahy's the other night asked
him if he was gonna be at the beacon?

"i reckon so"

Couple this with Butch's pronouncement that there are no scheduled guests for 3/26, the actual 40th Anniversary of the band, and well, I ain't no rocket scientist, but the stars are aligning nicely for a truly epic night in ABB history on the 26th.....

I hope that you are right, but I read it like Butch was saying nobody but the current band would be performing on the 26th. Dickey would be a special guest.

I hope I'm wrong, because Dickey should be there on the 26th if he's available, but I'm guessing he'll be used just as we've see the other special guests for 3 or 4 songs and that's all.

I'm starting to think Dickey will show up some time the last week and if he does they ought to do Blue Sky, the ultimate tribute to Duane.

Well RK- folks interpret things differently, and my take on Butch's statement, is that there are no "scheduled" guests. Just semantics, but in my mind, Dickey is not a "guest" but the return of the prodigal Brother.....

I'd agree that it'd be a 3 or 4 song spot, but......I'm guessing that Dickey knows more than just a couple ABB tunes , so it may just be a set, and an encore.

Time will tell.....

I don't know when Dickey will be there, but he will be there for Duane.

I hope you are right, I really do. I just think the bad blood seems to run so deep that he might not be seen as the "return of the prodigal brother" and more of just "the fans would be upset if we didn't at least invite him" situation.

Again, I hope I'm wrong. I'd love to see one final full show with Dickey in the band with a 3 guitar attack of Dickey, Derek & Warren.

Think if this happens we may also see Thom Doucette (no rumors yet asbout him) since he's the only one left from the Duane era. Chuck L. would be a stretch timewise, but since there are no rumors yet about him who knows.

Set list - just from the first 4 recordings unless Chuck shows.

Me in the seventh row with my son - priceless

Have to say, I sure as hell hope this happens

Well, if it does happen, I hope they give him the whole night, or at least a whole set + encore. But if he does only sit in for a 3-4 song mini-set, I hope they don't only play the Dickey songs that the ABB has been doing the past few years - Revival, Jessica, Liz Reed - and instead make it an opportunity to play Dickey songs they haven't been playing, like Blue Sky, BWIAB, etc. I do hope it happens though, in some shape or form.

"Dickey would be a special guest". That line struck a chord with me in a weird way. Dickey "a guest" in the Allman Brothers Band. Sounds strange. A little Seven Turns, Blue Sky and Liz Reed. Gives me the chills just thinking about it. I hope it happens. Based on the reviews of a few of Dickey's shows recently, it sounds like he is very on top of his game after wrist surgery, and ready to dazzle the Beacon faithful. Cool.

I think he would be an extended guest - IMOER, Blue Sky, Whipping Post, Revival, Jessica (if Chuck Shows) Whipping Post. Don't think he could sit in for the whole show unless he rehearses the whole last week (he is off tour, however) and if he did that the world would know for sure

No matter what ya say, Dickey is a Brother and always will be. The one that may or may not show up for Xmas dinner, but if he does, he is welcomed with open arms. Love to see it and I think if he was to come on the 26th, my read is he would be there for the entire show, as a brother not a special guest...........Duane is working some magic from that big Beacon in the sky.

This sounds like a perfect fit for Dickey's return. To interpret Butch....no special guest b/c Dickey is always a member of his own band. Big question is how do we get tickets for this one.

They would still have to rehearse at least a little wouldn't they? Which could happen Wednesday 3/25 so maybe something definite will come out then.

if it happens...it will be the longest, loudest ovation the Beacon has or will ever hear. Dickey will feel the love, Duane will be smiling down, and all of us lucky enough to be there will remember it forever.

Hope Dickey makes it for the 3/26 show which is the actual 40th Anniversary of the band, but one other person needs to be invited, and that's Reese Wynans. Reese was the keyboard player for the Second Coming and was the keyboard player at the orginal March 26 jam that founded the Allman Brothers band. It would be cool if all four remaining players at that jam were at Beacon on 3/26. Btw, for those who you who don't know Reese later on found fame as the keyboard player for Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble.

Wow Pony Boy now that's a flashbacks from past days (maybe '98, '99) the year they did the double acoustic/electric IMOER. yehaaa! I gots my ticket for 3/26.
I also like the notion of Back Where it All Began flashing pictures of Duane on the screen. Lets set the clocks back abit and let her rip.
BRING DICKEY BACK!!!!

Folks it ain't going to happen...Hope I'm wrong but I was at dickey's show on the 6th and his crew says nope..They say its all Bull@%$# from Butch..Dickey will never be a guest.. He is the ABB.. Unless he gets a change of heart no ...Just imagine the ABB without Liz Reed,Revival,Southbound,NBLTRW,High Falls,Les Bres,etc,etc..
Ed
Without his songs just think of what they would be like..It would not be the ABB
