Ok, we've all seen the rumors about Derek "leaving the band", or taking an extended break from touring....etc. Personally, I believe its overblown, but it has got me thinking about what I would LOVE to hear Derek do if ABB and DTB were put on hold.....

1. Acoustic album with Warren (with a few guest appearances from Susan of course)
2. Jazz record (similar to his work with Mcoy Tyner, Flecktones etc)
3. Power trio with Rico and Oteil (it'd be interesting to hear Derek play in a stripped down setting....no keys, no rhythm guitar)

Your thoughts?

Jazzy instrumental record would be amazing!

Not a fan of Already Free and it has me a little worried on the direction the band is going in.

Oh! and please leave "Doyle" on tour with Clapton please...

I would have to agree with your comment about Doyle. I just can't seem to figure out what Clapton sees (or hears) in him. His voice is nothing special, and neither are his guitar skills. He can handle the rhythm guitar parts, but when it comes to playing lead...the few shows I've heard with Clapton/Doyle/Derek.....Doyle doesn't even come close. Maybe I'm missing something...but the two songs Doyle sings/wrote on Already Free are my least favorite, and the only two I skip over when listening to the album.

Soul Stew is probably the most "accessible" music that Derek makes. If they were to somehow establish relationships with the powers that control airwaves, they could achieve commercial success on a grand scale.

Here in Birmingham, Kings of Leon are booked for the Birmingham Jefferson Coliseum (site of recent ABB/Panic show). Not to knock the 'Kings, but Derek (and SSR) play circles around these guys! Maybe arena-sized success is waiting for Derek!

Could you elaborate on that? I love Already Free. Just wondering what turns you off about it.

I'm a fan of the instrumental side of the dTb. Already Free really veers away from that and is headed in a more "popular" direction, so to speak. I'd like to hear more of what the dTb does best and thats JAM!

With that being said I think the record has great sound and production.

It would be nice for them to get the recognition they deserve, but I dont think they are after "commercial success". I'd much rather see DTB in a 2,000 seat auditorium vs. a 8-10,000 seat arena. I do actually like Kings of Leon...but I can only imagine what types of crowds they are bringing in after a little bit of radio play, and coverage in Rolling Stone.....probably not the type that would fit in at a typical DTB show. Derek has taken his time and built a strong fanbase the right way...I dont think he's in any rush to compete with Miley Cirus or any other pop stars that are filling arenas.

Heard he's going to head into the studio and begin work on a truly groundbreaking tribute album.....that's right Derek is going to put down his guitar in favor of his new instrument the KEYTAR!!! Mike Lawler will joining his new band..The Keytar Brothers Band, they will be playing all of the ABB's greatest hits with nothing but keytars. Get ready for the world tour.

I wasn't suggesting that he become a sell-out or anything. I just think it would be justifiable and deserved if he achieved the same level of success as the ABB.

The last time Kings of Leon played here (less than 1 year ago) - they played at WorkPlay ( a clubatorium -seats a couple hundred). Again, not to knock those guys, but I think Derek Trucks is more deserving of the higher level of success.

Didn't Susan T., in a recent interview that was posted on Derek's HTW forum, mention they had plans for recording a new CD in their home studio? Not clearly stated that it would be a SSR release.

do you mean to tell me that Wikipedia lied to me?

that thing looks awesome though. looks like a snakeskin-wrapped body? i did not realize snakeskin was a resonant material - perhaps it's for damping?


Has a skin ( body top ????) on the face.

My first choice would be an instrumental album going back to the jazz / Eastern influence. A combined effort with Rudresh Mahanthrapa would be cool (alto sax player of Indian descent, influenced by Eastern music and Trane). I don't see him going that route, though.

I'd be excited to hear him do an album with Susan.

Whatever he decides to do musically, I'm sure that I will enjoy it.

Sounds cool to me. And I'd love to hear Derek play with Jimmy Herring some more. I love the dTb and if there's going to be an entirely new band, I hope the group isn't on the shelf for any extended period of time.
