At least Derek thinks so, but what does he know?

Starting February 6, the Derek Trucks Band will begin a cross-country tour that will open in Portland, Maine and eventually carry the band out to California in April (with European dates rumored to follow). The tour will consist of two legs, with Trucks spending much of March at the Beacon Theatre with the Allman Brothers Band. Speaking of the ABB, in the current issue of Relix magazine, Trucks not only discusses his current release but also places odds that Dickey Betts will return to the stage with the Allman Brothers during its 40th Anniversary run at "even money or better."

Wow, that would be great! I hope they can get past their difficulties. It seems a shame to let that get in the way of some great music.

I hope so. With all due respect to Derek and Warren - ABB has just not been the same without Dickey.

A quotation from Butch Trucks in the latest Rolling Stone says that Dickey will NOT be with the Allman Brothers.

Yeah, I saw that quote. They probably started that rumor just to sell tickets..:-)
