Brothers and Sisters, Just heard Dickey is making an announcement next week regarding a tour! Yeeehaaa! Hope it is true. KLBazur Dickey? Dickey Betts is as bad as bad can be" Duane Allman, radio interview, 1971
Dickey Betts to Make Announcement on Touring for 74th Birthday Dickey Betts, founding member and guitarist for legendary southern rock icons the Allman Brothers Band, will make an announcement regarding his decision on returning to the road next week on December 12, his 74th birthday, Sarasota, FL’s Herald-Tribune reports. Betts’ manager David Spero says that he and the guitarist “have had many discussions” about a possible return to the road in the past few years. In a rare interview earlier this fall, Betts told Rolling Stone that he considers himself a retired musician, calling the situation “a little bit of burnout, a little sour grapes, a little bit like a boxer who gives it up.” “After Gregg Allman’s passing, his interests were heading elsewhere,” Spero says. “Since the Rolling Stone interview, I have received interest from a few promoters which I passed on to Dickey. The fans’ interest has also had a big impact on him. We have agreed to make a decision on December 12, his birthday. See you then!” Adding to the tour speculation further, earlier this week, Spero posted a note on his Facebook that read, “This is a huge what if, but what if Dickey Betts decided to play 10 cities, what should they be?” http://www.jambands.com/news/2017/12/07/dickey-betts-to-make-announcement-on-touring-for-74th-birthday/?utm_source=Relix+Daily&utm_campaign=d9a203136d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_12_07&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_486e6e4b54-d9a203136d-26611769&mc_cid=d9a203136d&mc_eid=8a3c745d97#ixzz50b0zgI00

Hey Dickey, my name is Sally. I was wondering if you were Jim Ingram's cousin, and I also wondered if you are, can you tell me if Jim is still in the Land of the Living? He was a big part of my life for 4 yrs. many, many years ago. He was married to Judy. I also have another question, but first things first. I want to see if you even get this. Thanks, Sal

Don't know if Dickey looks sat this area much, but I'll never forget your Highway Call tour show in December of 1974 at the Santa Monica Civic in SoCal, if memory serves me right you kept coming out for more encores, after 4 encores the lights came on and we were suppose to leave, but a few of us kept yelling for more, you came out for a quick acoustic song with the lights on! Thank you for the memory.

It was the summer of 1965. My girlfriend and I were in a bar called the Golden Gate Lounge, Cassat Ave., Jacksonville, Fl. The band's guitar player was playing the hell out of a red Gibson. I always wondered if that was Dickey Betts.
How about a new t-shirt with Dickey and his Goldtop!!
Yes please someone update this page so we know how you are doing and your future shows. Also, guitar players want to know what your current and past gear setups are/were?
Dickey, give us another couple of dates! We need your music now more than ever. Peachfest? Scranton PA? The Chance, Poughkeepsie NY? Bearsville, Woodstock?
