For goodness sake. If E.C. is going to be there again tonight, Doesn't it make sense that Chuck should be there too?... Layla acoustic!!! with Chuck on piano!!!

Come in my kitchen. Gregg, Warren and E.C. harmonizing, Gregg, Derek, Warren and Eric on Acoustics....with Chuck on piano!!!

i was certainly pleased to hear the traditional arrangement-- anything else is simply a waste of Derek's amazing skills! Ive heard Layla peformed by Clapton many times, and last night's version was the way it was meant to be heard (same for Anyday, Key to the Highway, etc)

Based on last night's show, it appears the goal is to play the D&tD songs as true to their original (Duane) arrangements as possible for these shows, so nope, doubt we'll be seeing the "Layla Shuffle" this time out.

Chuck is too busy watching his trees grow. My company buys trees from him.

I think Chuck would show up if this were the scenario.

"Hey Chuck, we'd like to invite you up to the Beacon to be on stage with us when Eric is here"

From what I've read in the past there arn't good feelings between Chuck and Eric. It seems that Chuck wasn't paid correctly for the "Unplugged " stuff so I don't think we'll see Chuck with Eric.

Good info, and I'm glad. I'd hate to see Chuck overshadowed by EC. I want Chuck to be the star during the time he plays. He has to play sometime I'm sure.

I'd like to find out more about that...

I've heard Chuck laughing a few times about how many really popular hits he's been on that he didn't get paid beyond his "session" payment (I think Blues Traveller, Black Crowes & Eric Clapton were all mentioned), but he didn't seem angry about it. In fact he said "I have to start asking for more money!" and laughed... So if he's got beef beyond that with Eric, that's interesting.

Any word about Chuck showing up for the run at all? Would love to see him sit in again. Was the Big House show the last time? (at the Beacon, that is)

I figure Chuck is real busy, but maybe could get away for a couple days.

Last show I saw with him was at Great Woods, Mansfield, MA when Chuck was in town to kickoff the Stones tour.

Last summer Chuck said this in an interview:

quote:
AAJ: Would you consider hooking up with the Allman Brothers in a more official capacity during their Beacon runs or summer tours?

CL: Well, sure. Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Allman Brothers and there's already been some discussion about special shows that may take place. I don't know what scheduling may come up concerning the Stones or other possibilities, but certainly I'd like to leave some time to help celebrate their 40th anniversary. Having been part of the band and maintaining a strong relationship, I think it would be tragic if I didn't engage in some way, shape or form.

http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=30216#9

So he was planning on being there, maybe the Stones are doing something in the studio???

Chuck would have made this a near perfect event.

Yeah, disapointing it doesn't look like Chuck will be there unless it's just for one night, which would be a surprise. Didn't say in that article that he was planning on being at the Beacon, just that he was interested at some point during this year.

I had heard he wasn't going to be able to make it due to his work at the mother nature network. http://www.mnn.com/
