my favorite ABB is when allen woody was playing bass. i would think dickie betts is crucial to what i like about the allmans. i checked out a bit of derek trucks, but he wasn't doin it for me.
i think people are willing to pay alot more for jam bands because you never know what your gunna get. going to see jam bands is always taking a chance. me being in a jam band myself, not all of our shows are good, but sometimes we'll play a remarkable set that shocks us all. the people who appreciate that concept are willing to pay a couple extra bucks, not to mention, all the jam band concerts are where the best drugs are-lets be honest with ourselves here
