Saw them last night at teh beacon theatre. Live close to the venue walked down there got a 20 orch seat...12 row and dicky was great.
Question does anybody know who the keyboard player and the bass player are for dicky's band.....They blew me away last night. oh and the drummer on the right side of the stage was one of the best drummers i have ever seen.
I've been re-reading What A Long Strange Trip by McNally (for the 20th time or something silly!). And it gets to the part on Watkins Glen and Jerry was on stage playing with the Allmans and this was being told by Butch Trucks, Trucks said Jerry was being really competitive and just stepping all over Dickey, ripping him and soloing all over the place but then made the mistake of going into Johnny B Goode and Dickey kicked his ass! Made me laugh.
It shows competeitive jerry could be, he liked to push people on stage. But I know he and Dickey liked and repsected each other.
I lost the last bit of the then already waning interest in the Allmans when he went. I love his guitar playing, his timing and spacings are incredible and so fluid.
