    Dickey Betts will not be down for breakfast.

    Amazing guitarist, amazing songwriter. Not a day passes that I don't listen to the Allman Brothers.

    Aw shit.

    The amount of musical talent to come out of the Allman Brothers is just incredible. Next time I pass through Macon, I'll tip one back in Betts' honor.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Awww shit, another great one gone. He had his demons as most artists do. My sister had him on flights when she was with Delta, said he was a polite soft spoken gentleman.

    Thanks for the notes Dickey.

    I always liked his sound, btw he was 80 which is not a bad run in the rock star business, all the old rockers are getting to that age

    I'm bummed. The end of an era. Good thing is that his son will carry the torch. RIP Brother.

    Glad I got to see him wail @ Red Rocks back in the 90s & stoked I saw his son a few weeks back here @ the Cap.
    has definitely been a big part of the soundtrack of my life.

    Hope him and Duane are playing 20 minute jams together in Valhalla

    Fkna. Good run for Dickey. His solo stuff will forever be under appreciated. Shred in peace. Just Jaimoe and Leavell left now.

    Dickey Betts will not be down for breakfast.

    Today, I went from a stressful and jaw clenching work day, to banging my head on my desk as windows updated and a deadline slipped, to learning about Dickey Betts death and being super bummed, to listening to the links in this thread while my computer updated, to now smiling while I scramble to not let my deadline slip more. Betts’ music makes me smile.

    RIP Dickey Betts
