Bonnie, Bekke and Susan, what a bunch!
They would have to change the name to the Allman Brothers & Sisters Band.

it was definitely the ladies night at the beacon
no slight to John Hammond, as is he seemed to put out another
fine performance, but the ladies just shined.

(Disclaimer, I thought the show was great and would have loved to have seen every song)

I thought the girls stepped on each others toes a bit. A bit to much call/response with the 'oh yeas', 'that's right', 'yea babies' (not talking about Susan). The Weight bordered on a train wreck.

But that's just me being critical.

I loved the show and can't wait for this evening!

Bonnie Bramlett was in the band for a couple of years in the late 70s-early 80s.

Ya just have to love the comraderie!! It's all about the love of the music ...playing together, having fun! They do it well!
I went to a DTB concert, and saw Susan for 1st time in Dec..am now a fan of Susan. It's been a long time I have seen a female musician I can say that I truly enjoyed listening to.

I agree though I don't think the song came off terribly wrong, just the lack of rehearsal and direction was evident, especially on a song so many people know.

You have a much better way with words than I do. HA! I didn't mean to sound negative it just looked like everyone wasn't on the same page, good emotion came out of the song though so that was a plus

I gotta say the girls killed it. I may have a crush on Bekka. Check out some pic of her on the web. Not too shabby.

Sounded great to me. I like the different arrangement the ABB do on 'The Weight' as opposed to the same arrangement everyone always does. I have heard that song soooo many times live by different bands and it gets a little old when played the same way.

Dude, you'd be surprised at how many on here don't really know who Bonnie is, or her connection with the ABB, her album on Capricorn where her and Gregg sung that song for the first time, etc, much less who Delaney and Bonnie were. There is another post on here talking about "Bonnie Brownlett, or something like that." As I read some of the comments about some of the guests since this Beacon run started, a lack of knowledge might be behind the lack of respect, the "current lineup is the best lineup" crap as the band harvests on the ground plowed by Duane and play 40 year old songs and the rest. But, whatta ya gonna do? I saw the version of the Allmans with Bonnie in the group at Legend Valley back in the day and they smoked it. The smiles on Gregg's face last night said it all.

I was timid to share my opinion but nice to know others felt the same way about the guests last night. I felt the ABB SISTERS really put a damper on what I thought was shaping up to be the best show of the run. I am biased as I have never been a fan of Bonnie B. but time certainly has not changed my opinion. I just don't get the appeal. She was almost annoying! They say opinions are like..........

I'm constantly gobsmacked by that fact.

I suppose I shouldn't take things for granted, don't want to sound like a snob, but being a Limey - and a lifelong fan (since 'The Original D&B' on Elektra) I'm always a bit miffed that many US fans aren't so aware of her background.

I agree about The Weight. It reminded me of a karaoke night or something.

Damn this is a tough crowd. As Derek from Cinncy put it Bonnie is ABB royalty. You want to rag a little on Bruce Willis hitting the stage I hear you but guys come on those three ladies are part of the history they all bleed peach juice. Cant agree with the trashin. You want perfect harmony and rehearsed "perfection" go south on Broadway about 10 blocks to the opera.

Bekka, Teresa Williams, Susan T. - now that would be a nice sounding (not to mention easy on the eyes) guest list!

It is amazing. At first, you wonder if it is an age thing. But, I still think it is the divide between what music and musicians the members of the ABB appreciate and certain segments of the fanbase which doesn't get it. All I know is that the period of 1966 to 1976 was as amazing, productive and innovative a time of new and diverse and evolving music being performed and originated as there ever has been, and the generations since then have stunk up the joint as far as matching it. Kind of sad, really. And, I want it to happen. Even punk and hip hop started within that time period. I interviewed James Nash last week, lead guitarist and front man for the group The Waybacks, about this very subject;

quote:
"When you think of towering influences in American music, when you think back of Duane Allman and Jimi Hendrix and Hank Williams and Janis Joplin, they all died before they were 30. It is amazing to think of the mark that they made on the world of music, and they didn’t live as long as I have. To me, its kind of staggering. I listen to some of this stuff in reverence at what these people were able to accomplish in such a short period of time. Most musicians struggle for 30 or 40 years to try and come up with a sound and identity, and very few people are as successful as those people have been and they pretty much did it when they were kids."

...........I think ‘Statesboro Blues’ was the first slide guitar I’d ever heard and I said, ‘I got to learn how to do that.’ I knew this guy that I took lessons from and I came to him and said, ‘How does he get that sound?’ When I heard that song, I didn’t even know what a slide was. I had really and truly never seen anybody hold a slide on their finger because I hadn’t seen a lot of people play. I just heard things on the record and I had no idea how to get that sound. He said, ‘That’s a slide.’ I said, ‘ A what?’ We were in the back of the music store where I took the lessons so this guy, Jerry Kimbrough, that I took lessons from in Nashville, he said, ‘Alright, we’re going to the front of the store.’ We walked up to the front of the store and he bought me a slide off the wall and we went back and he showed me how to use it. Of course, I’ve never figured out how to sound like Duane.

..............Led Zeppelin was under a lot of pressure to make it because it was their second record and, frankly, second records are frequently terrible from bands. You put out a first record that you’ve been working on for five or ten years and you get really famous and then your follow up is a ton of pressure. I think that what Led Zeppelin was able to do given that suddenly they were on top of the world and touring around and under all of this pressure to make another record, and then they come out with 'Led Zeppelin II' which, if anything, is better than 'Led Zeppelin I.' There are not a lot of bands that can do that. So, I look back in amazement at that period of time. And, really, there was a couple of years there where it seemed like everybody was on fire. There was Led Zeppelin, but look at what the Rolling Stones were doing, and look at what the Beatles were doing both together and separately. What Hendrix was doing, and Janis and Cream. I hope that I can see in my lifetime a time when there is that much really and truly inspired music coming out of that many people all at once."


We can only hope it happens.

As for guests musicians, that scenario by definition is usually not about the music being tight as can be, but about being loose and fun and respectful. There are times when the ABB by themselves smoke and are hot as a firecracker. Chicago of last year is a good example. Other times, however, like the Canandaigua, NY show which, other than "Les Brers," was blatantly lackluster at best, I'll take last night's show any day of the week.
