Hoping Betts decides to show.

Surviving Allman Brothers Band members Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones will reunite on March 10 at Madison Square Garden to celebrate 50 years of the landmark band.

According to a statement, founding guitarist Dickey Betts will not be in attendance for this landmark “The Brothers” gig due to “prior commitments,” but the lineup will feature familial blood like drummer Duane Trucks of Widespread Panic and old pals like keyboardists Reese Wynans and Chuck Leavell (In fact, in the past, Wyans was considered to fill the slot of the late Gregg Allman before he joined the band.)

“Hard to believe it’s been five years since our final show at the Beacon. We had all talked about doing a final show at Madison Square Garden which never came to fruition. What a great way to honor 50 years of music and fulfill that wish at the same time,” Haynes said in a press statement.

“I’m so glad to get the chance to pay tribute to 50 years of the enduring music of the Allman Brothers Band. I’m blessed to have been a part of their story. It’s gonna be a night to remember,” Burbridge added.

After I posted Garden show info - i looked back through the thread and came across the below quote.  

 

 

Nice interview with Derek:

 

Derek Trucks Reflects on Gregg Allman. . .

 

Has anybody reached out to you to say, "We're going to put the Allmans back together in some form"?

I've heard rumors about a show or something. If it's a show for Gregg and his legacy, that's a different thing. If it's anything beyond a show, I would think the intention would be wrong. You can't have the Allman Brothers without Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman. Those are just irreplaceable spirits. And you can't have an Allman Brothers gig without an Allman brother. I've heard people try to argue that you can, but I'm not buying it. If Duane's not there, Gregg certainly better be there. There are a few bands out there right now that are using names that maybe shouldn't be. That's another discussion.

Yeah, I am guessing Betts wouldn't want to stand side by side with Trucks and Haynes and play - but it would be great to see him on the stage, at least. 

 

Would love for him to at least come out a play a rendition of Jessica with Chuck.

I was at that Zak Wylde show at a Great Woods and I was pissed. Dickey had gotten arrested or something after the previous show in Albany. They should have cancelled the Great Woods show. Zak was so out of place, with his bullseye guitar and strange prancing heavy metal act. I felt so ripped off I boycotted the band for several years.

 

Zakk is a goon. i hate his playing style.

Since his dismissal from the Allmans, Betts has been a guest of Tedeschi Trucks Band during at least one of their Beacon runs, and sat in with the Phil & Friends lineup featuring Haynes a few times. He has no beef with either of those guys, and buried the axe with Gregg at the end. He has played with Jaimoe in recent years too. The beef was mainly with Butch, and I'd imagine there is just too much drama for him surrounding the whole Allmans thing.

I watched the webcast and thought it sounded great. Would love to see this lineup tour more, or any incarnation with Derek, Warren, and Oteil. Chuck was nice, not sure about his vocals on Blue Sky. Would be nice to have another singer in the band, but Warren was a natural on all the songs.

Yeah, I was surprised that he took lead on the that, but I thought it sounded pretty good. He has somewhat that same vocal timbre as Betts. Not to mention it seem like a nice shout-out to Betts, by having Chuck sing it.

There have been some I did not get - but thought about it:  The Final Note (Painter's Mill 1971), Warner Theater 2005, Down in Texas '71, and Syria Mosque (1971).  I have been by the place where the last one was recorded. It's a parking lot now.

 

I did get the re-release of Bear's Fillmore East show (1970) and the Fillmore West '71 cd.
