yep, inhale is the key....personally an apple martini would serve me better. Who is the barkeep around here?? Rainy, thank you.
All equally great posts.. Luke, southsider and RickT...and TennKev... and all who post here all make me think... as greggswoman said on ABB...GB sad, all so very sad...:(
What concerned me about Claude's post... He obviously is very sensitive about his relationship with Duane. Over the last year or so, Butch has referenced his relationship with Duane in a defensive manner, as if to say his relationship with Duane was "different" or perhaps tighter. If you research it, you will see what I am talking about. Im very concerned that Butch would make this all about him. Here is a man that has a life-threating illness, needs uplifting, and the purpose and focus of Butch's post was to defend his relationships and business ventures. Butch, let me give you a piece of advice. The only defense to a lie is the truth. Like you, most of us older cats have tried business ventures before that have failed for one reason or another. You did not look back, and you survived it and moved on. FSU in your case probably stood for "FU*** Signed Letters of Understanding", and they didnt even Name the Studio after you or have an Allman Brothers picture or signed drumhead anywhere...who knows. Those bastard academians....budget cuts my ass. Anyways, the way it comes across is "Daddy loved ME more than he loved YOU" and he knew his children all had flaws....including you. All you band members want to write and rewrite history. Everyone has an asshole and they all stink in this little deal. So, Duane could have easily have said one thing to you and another to RD. Would not surprise me in the least...shit, y'all did the same thing to each other so why not? SO, every iota of what you posted may be factual, and every iota of what RD says may be equally factual....that blended truth sounds more like it. After all, we are only human when it comes to relationships.
Heck, I wish you will leave it up Luke. I know it would fall on deaf ears, but I wish you would post it on the blue site as well. Dickey, and now RedDog catch waaay to much undeserved crap over there. NONE of them are/were saints or saviours. As I said before, it's good to get another side of the story every once in a while.
Love your post, Southsider.:cool:
One thing i heard in Macon at Buffalo's gig down by the river ,has always stuck in my mind.I overheard Trucks saying(very loudly) that he was glad that m-fu-king redneck Betts didn't come up.Said he'd of had to kick his ass & it would have been in the Telegraph the next morning. Dude that was totally uncalled for man.And from spending numerous times around Betts,i don't think you'd have the balls to get in his face.Cause i truly believe Dickey would be all over your ass like a buzz saw on jet fuel. Most likely i'll take this post down after a while.Cause it doesn't need to be a permanent fixture.Just airing a little gas ya might say. SOUTHSIDER,ya hit the note on that one man!
Back in 2000 after the firing of Dickey someone posted on the old ABB site the 4 remaining members should all go out in the woods to a cabin. They should leave all their alcohol, drugs knives and guns outside and then go in and discuss their differences. Someone then posted that would only last about 30 minutes as Dickey would kick the crap out of the other 3 within that time frame. I think he could do it!! Peach.
:beer:Great stuff southsider.
So I guess now is a bad time to ask if there'll ever be a reunion of the original surviving members??? Just kidding, settle down!!.... Seriously tho'....It is pretty sad to see how thoroughly fractured the various ABB relationships have become....I, like many of you here always had this idealistic vision I carried around about what the so-called brotherhood was like back in the day and how great it must have been....When you are young, you are full of idealism, but when you get older and get your ass kicked by the world a bit, realism takes over....And it looks like ABB is about realism these days, not some idealistic "brotherhood", no matter how hard it is to swallow....I have this reoccuring dream about Gregg, Dickey, Butch, Jaimoe and Reddog getting locked in at Rose Hill after dark and all seperately meeting at the graves of Duane and Berry, much to the other's surprise....At which point, lightening flashes and thunder rumbles and the ghosts of Duane and Berry appear before them as they all tremble in their shoes....Then, the ghosts of D and B do a simultaneous, Three Stooges slap across all their foreheads and tell 'em to get their S@#% together before it's too late....
Butch may not care what I think... But.. lips sure does.... I think she might be stalking me.... 😮 hows that for reality.... at least I am on the side of the* truth*..
😀 I better split before the whole shit-house goes up in flames... I'll check back later....
LMAO. Time out for TennKev and Mr. King. Naughty, naughty.
