This from the ABB's Rock and Roll HoF induction in 1995 right after the band's killer 1994 "Back To Where It All Begins" year.The evening was notable for a few things, including where Gregg was at, etc. But I noticed this last night - key on Dickey's rhythm playing at about the 1:50 mark. It is absolutely top shelf. Great riffing.

Even with Gregg sh!t faced, this is an incredible performance!
Warren lays some sweet licks on top of that fabulous rhythm playing too.
Really miss this version of the band.

gregg sh!t faced maybe but sad we have to reflect almost 20 years into the past to find some good dickey material.


Its not debatable that Gregg was drunk that night. He admitted it publicly, said he never remembered the performance and said he was embarrassed by his performance. He credited that negative with helping himself turn his life around.

COULD NOT, disagree with you more with that statement.

Honestly, I am not seeing it.

At and around the 1:50 mark Dickey is playing what he usually did on this tune and, maybe because I was focused in on it, it sounded a little choppier than usual. Always love a Dickey/Warren One Way Out (or just about anything from that lineup) but that seemed like a pretty standard/solid OWO.

My favorite rhythm from Dickey is LAFE Liz Reed, the organ solo for Stormy Monday and Southbound on Brothers and Sisters.

Not the rhythm part anyway, it is his lead playing that smokes. Man, sorry to say....Warren just plays the same slide riffs all the time, over and over, not impressed at all, sounds like a poor imitation of Duane here...

Gregg might be drunk, but sure looks like he was packing away the Winchell's jelly glazed...

Dickey is definitely on...focused and keeping good time. Gregg, on the other hand...wow! I saw them in '94 and '95, and although I didn't have the best seats, I don't recall Gregg ever appearing that puffy. He must have really gone on a bender in Winter '94/'95. I like this quote beneath the video:

"Dickey was very composed during this peformance. I thought he was really good. Gregg on the other hand not so much. Gregg Looks like Big Enos Burdette from? Smokey and the Bandit. "

LOL


And then Gregg straightened out and Dickey went down the **** ter. Talk about role reversal.

I always liked the rhythm playing on Dreams but I guess that's Duane not Dickey -- learned that through MCTB, that Dickey wasn't on hand for the Dreams session -- he was still credited, but Gregg was still quite specific that all guitar work on Dreams is by Duane -- but real nice rhythm playing

Both Duane and Dickey were excellent rhythm guitarists. I've admired a lot of Dickey's rhythm playing behind Duane - he plays a lot of stuff that helps pull it all together and if you see him on the older videos doing this - he's TOTALLY into it!

I am one of those people who doesn't know his ass from his elbow when it comes to playing an instrument. I am the guy, like Derek says, who won't even notice if the band fcks up.

However, after watching this, how can someone like Butch go on and on about Dickey not having the greatest of chops? Seems like some objectivity has been lost with all the bad blood.

I can't get enough of Dickey's rhythm playing. Thanks Derek.

Goes directly to what made these two so good. Mutual respect. "Not only will I play competent rhythm for you, but I do so learning from you and knowing you will do the same for me"...

If you play guitar and have jammed with others, you have a story about the guy who either can not or will not play rhythm. He is content to noodle away, while you get cramps. You have a tendency to not call him again and ask if he "wants to jam"....

Dickey is one of the best rhythm players and is underrated for that ability. Both he and Duane had such great comps, fills, and riffs to compliment the music. I always enjoy listening to what he and Duane were doing behind the leads. Especially in the EAP Mtn Jam...filled with little gems.
