I love it.

How about we all just pay tribute to this legend named DB who we are lucky to still have around? If you are so upset with the youtubes you have seen then just don't attend any shows. If you want to honor DB and the fact that he is still getting up there thrills you, then go and listen respectfully to whatever it is he has left to give. Let's treasure the enormous gift he has given us.


Yeah, I don't really understand why anyone is upset by this tour. I haven't heard anyone who went asking for their money back. Macon sounded like an amazing moment for fans, a big family reunion. But a bunch of downers watching from home seem to know what's best - what is it to them? Just stay home, don't go.

Man, that's a strange name for a dog. I wonder if people call the cops when he loses his dog and walks around the neighborhood calling his name.

EXACTLY! Thank you for that observation.

Yeah, looks like there has been some pm harrassment going on, noticed another member with same complaint.Shrug it off man. The web tends to bring out the worst in us, probably because we aren't accountable.

Btw I read the Alan Paul Guitar World article where Joshua Jacobson mentioned you introduced him to Betts, who then recorded on his record. Pretty cool! A guitar player's dream break.

First time post. Long time lurker. Fan since ‘71. This is late, but here’s my Macon trip. Drove a good 5 hrs to Macon for Dickey’s show. Had a full itinerary on show day, starting at Rose Hill Cemetery. What a serene, historic, moving place for not only a Brother’s fan, but anybody who likes history. The headstones and mosoleums are incredible. Seeing the Bond tomb, Liz Reed Napier, Little Martha & 3 of the Brother’s graves in person was pretty overwhelming. Gregg’s site was covered w/flowers, trinkets of every description, Headed to The Big House. It was crowded that day, but we still saw everything and felt that rush of nostalgia, which primed us for a visit to Grant’ Lounge in the afternoon for attitude adjustment. Johnny Neel was at the bar, BD Oakley, Chris Anderson (former Outlaw’s) & rest of the band were there doing a sound check. They played a couple tunes. As we were about to leave, in walks Pedro. Super nice dude! Everyone was accessible and friendly. The vibe in town was that everybody was stoked and about to witness something historic. The bars, streets were overflowing w/fans from across the country. We met people who had driven from MO, OH, FL, even CA. Macon City Auditorium Is a beautiful old venue and the vibe in the room can only be described as ELECTRIC. The anticipation to see the guy again (likely the last time) who meant so much as a player, writer and (IMO) the savior of the band after Duane died, was palpable. You all know the set list, so I won’t reiterate. Dickey had a compression bandage on his right index finger, which seemed to give him some trouble (edge kept unwinding). Just to hear him sing and play again was definitely something I never thought would happen and I would make that trip 10 times over, if I had the chance. His son Duane has really come into his own and his solo on Whipping Post was really great, Devon hugging Dickey onstage & playing Midnight Rider was a highlight, as was Devin playing his Uncle Duane’s gold top, borrowed from the Big House that day. Jaimoe came in and played, which was great, but for those who wanted a Gregg & Dickey reunion before he died, it was bittersweet. The night was for the fans who have begged Dickey to come out one last time, and they cheered him at every turn, listening with their ears AND their hearts. Having it start in Macon was GRAVY and the pilgrims were definitely in the house, along with so many musicians & friends of Dickey’s. Even Sandy (Blue Sky) & their daughter Jessica were there to support Dickey and hear songs written for them, one last time. Afterward, we went back to Grant’s Lounge & heard Oakley’s band. Pedro, Duane showed up & I heard Devon came too, but we left around 2:30 am.. They were rockin’ the house. Chris Anderson was a killer! He and Jack Pearson were backstage w/Dickey checking out his new guitar. All told, it was a celebration of epic proportion and I’m just glad I had the sense to get down to Macon. Seeing Dickey onstage one more time, in Macon, of all places, surrounded by family, friends/musicians, fans was pretty damn epic. Sorry this was such a long ass post, but it’s hard to describe what a lasting memory this will be. I’d like to get to another show, but for God’s sake, Dickey, can’t ya play again south of NY or PA...maybe on your way back home? We will be there!

Hey, you’re welcome, pcb. I actually feel bad for any Brothers fan that didnt get to go to Macon. There won’t be anything like that ever again. I’d say if anybody hasnt gotten their ass to a show, do it now before it is too late, The Rose Hill trip was a big reminder. There are 3 brothers in the ground, and countless roadies, managers, crew, plus Truck’s ashes elsewhere. That was enough to make me wake up, buy the damn tickets and start driving. The Beacon should bring on some pretty nostalgic moments, too, for those that can make it. Not fond of that drive to the city from down South, so I will wait to see if there is one last show just a tad closer. If not, I’ll continue to catch “the offspring” when they tour close enough for a 2-3 hr. drive and just be damn grateful I made it to the Macon show. Nothing is ever gonna top that experience in this day & age. Also saw where some of this tour money is earmarked for various charities. Dickey and his band donated some of the Macon proceeds to The Big House. Maintenance alone on that place must cost a mint. So...it’s a feel-good ticket all the way around for me.

Exactly the kind of respectful post I was hoping to see here from someone who was there. That is one hell of a first post.........thanks for taking to leap from "lurker" to "poster".

Really wish I could have gone to the Macon reunion, couldn't get out of a prior commitment. There likely won't be anything like it again. If the Boca Jam goes down in October, I should be able to bear witness, though it won't be quite the same energy as Macon, no doubt.

Rob...thanks. Cant see faulting a guy I’ve spent my best years appreciating his contributions to music. Just to see him stand there, try his best, at his age, and then see the outpouring of love in that venue told me I was on the right track with my review. All I have to say to anybody who wants to fault him is “where is YOUR Liz Reed”?, let alone all the other great songs he wrote and co-wrote. That one song alone is a effin masterpiece and if it doesnt still move an ABB fan, then ya might as well have your ass planted in Rose Hill, too. LOL

Bob..,I’m still on the fence about Fla Jam, although come early fall, if there are a couple tickets to be found, I may just make that trip. If not, I’ll be lookin’ for your report!

Thank you Southernfan what a pleasure to read
Someones truth . It brought tears n chills to read your post
It means so much to the ABB/DB fans .
It’s what I wished I could have experienced n then written about . I’ve got tons in my own private collection of shows
It was the best band ever and the musicians in it
were extraordinary to say the least .
Pedro and Duane are the best , they are welcoming
and dig the profession they are in
Thanks so much
Blue Sky day to all n let your soul shine

I wish I could have made it to this celebration but it just wasn't in the cards for me now that I have two little kids. I made my pilgrimage to Rose Hill in March 2000 and will never forget it. "serene, historic, moving" ..definitely. One of these years i'll make it back and make my pilgrimage to the Big House.

Congrats on having Dickey Betts appear on your album. How did he end up playing on “Pistol Packin’ Papa”?
I met Dickey through a mutual friend who Dickey calls "Luke the Drifter." Luke called me years back and told me he was cooking for Dickey at his Myakka River party [in Florida] and told me if I ever wanted the chance to meet the cat, this was it.

I flew down and Luke called Dickey at home to tell him he had a friend coming who plays “all of that Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell stuff.” Dickey told him to come on over, and we showed up with a 5-gallon bucket full of Bud and my old Stella 12-string.

I finally saw some video of the Macon show. First, I’m a HUGE Dickey Betts fan. I’ve seen the Allmans over 50 times, but only got to see Dickey play with them once, which was my first ever Allmans show in 1999, along with Derek I believe. Nobody was better than Dickey. I think it’s obvious to everyone with ears that he can no longer play, but that’s not the point. I think it would be kind of foolish to buy a ticket to see him and then be shocked that he doesn’t sound like Live at the Fillmore. I’m still thrilled that he’s playing, for nostalgia reasons. If he’s doing the tours as a farewell, I’m on board with going to see him, which will be in July at Peach. I say he should play until the good Lord tells him otherwise.

Yet this abject fawning does him and his legacy a disservice: better he just held court at The Big House Museum, sort of like a book-signing


After watching video of both the "Practice" show and the Macon performance, I thought the same thing. Now, the videos are out there and well, I hope someone close to him cares enough to speak the truth. I choose to remember the Dickey I saw at Winterland, with the Bros. and as Richard. The "WLD" Tour or being at the KMET Live simulcast w/Great Southern in 1977. The ABB I saw numerous times in 1979 and again in 1980. The Dickey Betts band where I first heard and saw Warren Haynes in 1989 just before the band's relaunch that same year when I was in the crowd at The Shoreline Ampitheater...and on and on....But this was not even close.....

He can still play. I watched him up close playing rhythm and also saw some moments of brilliance at other times. I couldnt help but wonder what was going on behind those solemn eyes while he was there, He must have had nerves of steel to tamp down the emotions that came with that particular venue and being only 1 of the 2 surviving band members...then to be paying tribute to Gregg by playing a couple of his songs he hasnt played in 18 yrs. If it was overwhelming for most of the audience, just think about what it was for him, looking back at all of it as a senior. Like somebody else here said....if you cant take anything into consideration other than ticket price and your desire for him to live up to your overblown expectations for a 75 yr, old., then do yourself a favor and stay home. Dont disparage the man and make a point of trying to ruin it for everybody else. Anybody who actually expects him to be the axe slinging, renegade of his youth deserves to be disappointed, because they havent grown up yet themselves and experienced what comes with age. His catalog alone gives him the right to say a hardy f-you to any of his detractors. I do, however, miss the days when he would probably drop-kick your ass across the room if you said something stupid.

I haven’t really gotten this involved in yrs but

Well I love reviews from people at shows and even then our interpretations of what we see n hear are different . Sounds are different in the locations of the theater as well .
Do you really think that DB doesn’t know that he’s 74 on the heels of 75 ... that he’s not what he once was ???? he said it in an interview . Did you miss that . Why must people bring up when he was 34 44 54 64 etc None of us are what we were when we were young .. stop
You look ridiculous when you make comparisons from then to now .
If you don’t like the man stay off the topic create another one that interests you . DB interests most of us on the ABB site ... ya dig
I’m fan of his I will support him forever .
He reaches right in there where some of us live n breath n touches a musical cord no one else can . I’m sorry for you if you haven’t experienced that . That could be why your so bitter
Blue sky’s baby let your soul shine

No one knows what these original men meant to each other . Only they know ... the connection between Gregg n DB was healed n that makes me very happy .

Maybe you should go to a show , see a musical legend in the caliber of DB n ask him to sign your precious guitar .
Loved to see you post a picture of that.
Geez

Thanks again to Southernfan

Agreed. I'm not sure what some cranks get out of repeatedly ragging on a concert that they weren't even at. They are totally missing the point.

Good post.

For those who want to bring "truth" to the forefront...c'mon. It's highly doubtful that DB doesn't know that his playing isn't like it was 10, 20, 30, etc. years ago. So what. For those who want to enjoy and pay tribute to someone who has inspired many, then let it be. Let DB give us a few shows w/out being overly analyzed. I've seen the vids & would still go see him. I don't see the need for some to compare him to yesteryear or versions of the band from years ago.

What is surprising & laughable is that some "critics" seem to want to make Dickey's shows and their criticism of his playing to be more about them than Dickey. It's like some big letdown to them. Got news for them - it's not about you; it's about Dickey. Let him enjoy himself and play for his fans.

It was a nice thread discussing the legend that is Dickey Betts, and some people have to go and type stuff like this. What a shame.

At the end of the day, these guys are in their golden years, and have just a few left. Why spend them at home doing nothing? If it's a bucket list item for him to get out there and do it one more time, I'd like to see it. I do hope he gets into better playing shape, but if he doesn't, I'll be having fun watching a legend. He was up front and admitted he can't play anymore recently, so the quality of playing isn't the point. He's someone who is going to do what he loves doing and doesn't care what people think, and again, I'll enjoy watching that aspect of it.
