How sad that he is no longer part of the Allman Brothers tradition. If I had my druthers, I would wanna see a sober and happy Dickey up there instead of Warren.

Don't get me wrong - Warren is great, and his contributions to the band have been many - but so much of what I love about the original Allman Brothers spirit lies in that feel-good country vibe that Dickey brought to the band. Some - not all, but some - of the ABB shows I've seen ended up feeling like too much Warren.

There was nothing like it back in the old days when Dickey would step up and let loose.
He was the man for sure!
Sadly as he is now they are better of without him.
I saw him in St. Pete last spring and he was a shadow of his former self. My guess he was drunk and he was just off. If showed up at Wanee sober and ready to rock it would be the highlight of all the years, but we pretty much know its not gonna happen :cry:
