Cool story bro.
Thanks JK. You stepped up on that one. Can't believe it's been that long. Dan
Thanks on the Moon Kitty care and update.
Miss ya - Dickey - you inspired my late start guitar playing style - I still play - God Bless!
Good job sir, for taking in Lizzie's kitty. That kind of Karma will come back to you. I suspect there was a grand ol time on the Rainbow Bridge. RIP Lizzie and Moon. (Why are they sending Steve Superior back to Gainsville?? I thought you were keeping him!)
To those who loved Elizabeth, her beloved MOON passed away Saturday....he was 18 yrs old and did not suffer.....I gave him an extra 3.5 yrs........😢
I don't want to intrude on privacy! I know what a brother means to a person! My condolences Mr Betts!!! I was just thinking how lucky I am that one of my musical heroes is taking a break but my search for musical bliss wasn't too far down the road!!! About twenty miles across the Albemarle sound from my stomping grounds on July 3rd,I went to the lost colony theatre in manteo nc and caught the dawes band with duane betts! talking about the musical rekindling of my fire!!! I never heard Dickeys actual licks played on this beautiful night but I knew when I heard the sound of that soft wailing guitar I knew where it came from! The sound that the band put on that night was out of sight!!! I'm a thankful traveling music lover!!! When I got there I walked to the sound shore and looked down the beach and there was a huge strong young eagle perched on a cypress tree! I had a good feeling it was going to be a great night!!!
spread yo wings eagle
anyone have any info on whether Dickey has expressed any interest in getting back out there and performing again? I know we all miss hearing that guitar and voice.....but does Dickey miss it?
Down home in Florida ya gotta believe Dickey often has his guitar in hand and is a pickin'. Shoot I'd love to just hear a home made recording...
Highway country side,feeling can't be denied,you ain't never been down there before!!!! This a great website, great videos!!! Thanks!!!
Mustaches For Betts is opening a local chapter near you!
People can you feel it , love is everywhere!!!
Duane Betts Joins the Night Train Music Club On Wednesday evening, Dawes guitarist Duane Betts sat in with the Night Train Music Club, a revolving cast of all-star touring and session musicians assembled by singer/guitarist Steve Postell for weekly performances at the Buffalo Club in Santa Monica, California.
