Great news that you'll be "on the road again". Think about adding in some guests on your tour. One of my favorite things you do is jam. Just ran across an old you tube of you and Django rheinhardt playng at the iridium nyc. That was legacy stuff!! See you soon!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!??
Absolutely thrilled beyond belief to recently learn that in 2018 and hopefully beyond, we will all enjoy the sweet and soothing guitar and vocals of the cat in the hat.....Mr. Dickey Betts!! I thought that the last time I saw Dickey Betts & Great Southern on 11/01/2014 at Robart's Arena in Sarasota, Florida that it would probably be the last time that I might ever see him perform in concert again. We lost alot of great musicians in 2017 and diehard, life long fans of Dickey Betts feel like we need him maybe now more than ever before. I also long for the day when Dickey and Warren might play on stage together once again. I always felt like they had an outstanding chemistry live in concert and in the studio. I hope and pray that everyone has a healthy and Happy 2018. Perhaps the road does go on forever. Thank you for creating and sharing some of the best music the world has ever known. Thank you for taking care of your loyal fans! Happy New Year!! Chris

Happy holidays! May your spirit fly,flow and soar!!!
Can’t wait for the tour dates and locations to be announced, sure hope Birmingham is on the tour. Iron City Grill would be a great location for the show.
Happy Birthday old man. We had a little bit of time together in Philadelphia back in the early 90's - we handed a Les Paul back and forth, you playing with mostly three fingers, me playing it how I learned it. You talked about your dad being a fiddle player - sir - you gave me a great memory, thank you. Seen you many times with the brothers and with Great Southern. So very glad you decided to take it on the road again. see you soon. JF
Happy Birthday, Dickey.
Thanks for inspiring me as a guitar player in 1970. I have played every day since then and you are a great inspiration. I hear your playing in my head all the time. Hope to see you again in the NY area, i have my Live at Fillmore you signed for me hanging in my kitchen! Cheers!

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
Again,thanks for giving! I always loved how the tours With great southern always took us to different places around the world and country! I always tried to make it an adventure and dann if it didn't work! Meeting new people and seeing new places and the music was on fire,you know it! Love ya!!!
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
Forest has money in unclaimed property in Fla. The state is holding money for you Dickie! Good luck collecting!!!!!! JJ from Chambersburg Pa.
Thanks for giving!!! There is another bend in the river!!!
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.

"Duane Betts This is the stuff real stuff is made of,my friend!!!" Oh yea. Duane sure did his daddy proud at Peachfest. His playing on Jessica was so... Betts.
