Now that I am sober I'll retract my comment that ABB is not ABB without Dickey. They sounded pretty darn good last year at Wanee. Some of my friends feel that Dickey is an irreplaceable member of the band that played a big part in the ABB sound. Let's just say it's still ABB, just not the same ABB.

I do like Jack's playing better than Derek's though. That's based on seeing them together and separate. I think his slide playing is more tasteful. Again, one man's opinion going back to that guitar thread. Probably everyone in the audience disagreed with me.

Pete, it's ok to have your own opinion!! (even if it's wrong!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

JUST KIDDING!! there is no right or wrong. it's all personal...passionate, and it's all good! it's like saying dark chocolate is better than white chocolate...says who? I DO. but I don't think there is any KING CHOCOLATE who decides. there is only Count Chocula. and he don't make no cereal that tastes like white chocolate.

makes perfect sense, right?! :lol:

sat back and watched this evolve....it's been entertaining
and helpful to me in a way.... i never knew what to believe as a fan....i heard so many rumors...i guess only the ABB and Dickey know the whole truth...
bottom line to me is forgiveness...i hope inside the camp that forgiveness has been achieved.
some old wounds will take a lifetime to heal,, sometimes,
but as was said here and we hear often,we are humans and are capable of falling off our rocker,,,all of us.

i too try not to get so involved with the personal side of rockdome ( just made that word up) and try to stick to the rock that makes it roll....
..i appreciate the contributions Dickey has made musically.

it's really for the best to stay out of the personal side...I learned that from the Bryan Dondero split from the Nocs. it was horrible for me...took it all too personally, felt I needed to pick sides...when all along I am only hearing things second hand and also hearing from the Bryan Dondero camp. for some reason Grace never called me to talk about it! :lol:

I have talked to Grace on the phone twice though. :D
she was reminiscing about it I guess at the Haiti benefit..SHE REMEMBERED!!

:) See, that's the way I was when Jason Isbell was, suddenly, gone from the Driveby Truckers. The DBT camp acted as though all was amicable, while Jason's Myspace page said, differently. Then, the Truckers came out all snarley and s#%t, telling everybody that what happened was none of our "f!*king business". Ummm, excuse me folks, I've dropped more money on the floor of the venues you've played than most folks will EVER spend on y'all, and you tell me it's none of my f!*king business ?
Pray tell, what am I going to do with that tidbit, sell it to Entertainment Tonight ? You know what, your next cd might be none of my f!*king business, either ! Yeah, I was pissed. Rumors flew, that Jason and Marc Ford were doing heroin, all kinds of other s#%t too dumb to mention. Eventually, the truth came out, and it was, pretty much, what I had figured. But, not before I had raised hell on the official DBT website, becoming personna non grata, over there. :roll:
