"Dick" Betts? It just sounds strange

I enjoyed that greatly, but I couldnt help getting tickled every time I read "Dick says that" or "Dick usually doesnt..." etc.

I mean, he's been Dickey, Richard, Forrest, etc etc but NEVER "Dick".

I wonder where that came from??

What changed or rather what caused the change? You are right SmilingJack. It does surprise me when BigV posts a pic or a nice article about Dickey. Thanks BigV.

I have not seen anyone who seems to know about the name change. Anyone??????? I wonder if it wasn't a 'call me whatever you want' type of thing.

Actually, what I meant was what caused BigV to not be a fan any more. I can only speak for myself, but once I am a fan, I'm alway's gonna be a fan. Just curious, that's all. Anyway, it's a shame.

Yes... we do show our age around here... but it's not so bad .. I am in great company..

anyway, over on DB as well as abb homepages they post little "He said thoughts" from the band members and such ... and I always chuckle when this one pops up, so I thought I'd post over here... sorry , couldn't resist... LOL

And he said...

"We've always tried to remain a band of the people in terms of the way we dress and conduct ourselves. And that's worked out well for us; now that we're middle-aged, we're actually very fortunate that we've never had to rely on sex appeal. I'm over 50. I'm a good, strong man, but it would be ugly if I had to get out there in a pair of tights."

-- Dickey Betts
