I talked to Chris (Dereks Father) last night at the dTb show in Buffalo for awhile and we got to talking about the Beacon this year. He told me that Derek is working on getting Eric Clapton to come this year. NOT SET IN STONE but looking really good he told me and ALSO Aretha Franklin is in the Works but as of right now she wants BIG $$$$. He wouldnt really tell me anymore but said that its going to be BIG this year. We also talked about Wanee and he said as far as he knows theres no dates set yet.

Review for dTb show at UB in Buffalo last night. Show was Excelent! New songs are Great cant wait for the new CD in Jan. AND SUSAN WAS ON HAND for back up vocals on 7 or so songs!!! GREAT SURPRISE! Talked to them a bit after the show. Susan said she just missed Derek and wanted to see him so flew in to spend the day with him and jam for us!

Wow!.. That's pretty big news. I too have had the opportunity to speak with Chris a couple of times and have found him to be engaging and extremely passionate about his son's music. Imho, If Chris is speaking about the possibility of E.C. being at the beacon this year, well then, damn... It is a possibility and one to be excited about. Make it so, no.#1 son, make it so.

I also heard the EC possibility second hand from a HTN guy we all now & love.

Derek seems pretty sure he'll do it.

Last beacon tour that was canceled, Clapton rearranged his schedule to make an appearance for the last night. since he was also in area. He is arranging his tour next year, since he is down under in March, around beacon dates, so although nothing is written in stone, lets just say, anything is possible.

You can add Boz Scaggs to that list.

On 2 November 2008 Derek Trucks was interviewed before his concert with the Derek Trucks Band at University of Buffalo Center for the Arts. 2009 will mark the 40th anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band. About their annual Beacon Theatre Run in 2009 Derek said the following:

One of the ideas is to have some of the musicians sit in with us that played with DUANE ALLMAN over the years, people that influenced him and people that he influenced. The band is reaching out to artists like ERIC CLAPTON, ARETHA FRANKLIN and BOZ SCAGGS, obviously scheduling will play a part in it but even if half the musicians can share in the event it should be pretty amazing.

Yes, Dickey Betts was one of the guitar players who played with Duane. Even more than Boz Scaggs.
