The ABB Mourns the Loss of Kofi Burbridge
 
Posted on Saturday, February 16, 2019 - 10:16 AM


The Allman Brothers Band Family lost another member last night, Kofi
Burbridge.

Kofi a master of keyboards and flute came into the family through his
brother bassist Oteil.

He died in Atlanta on February 15, following complications surrounding
treatment for an ongoing cardiac issue.

He regularly sat in with the Brothers, over 20 times listed on ABB web site,
but there were more shows not listed.

His warm smile, subtle personality and expert music skills made him a
welcome addition every time he was at a show.

Kofi had a standing invitation to play, some times he just came to watch, or
wandered off.

His flute solos on Elizabeth Reed were unique and memorable. His keyboard
contributions were masterful.

Our broken hearts and grief go out to the Burbridge and Tedeschi Trucks Band
families on the loss of Kofi.

His memory, talent and contributions to music will be with us all forever.

Posted on Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 05:00 PM

The Allman Brothers Band have lost another member of its’ family today.

Earl Francis died peacefully in hospice overnight at a VA hospital in Wilkes Barre, PA.

Earl Francis joined the family in 1989 as a lighting rigger and grew to be lighting director through 2014.

Earl also worked many Gregg Allman tours as well as continuing his long time employment with BML/Blackbird Theatrical services.

Known to many as Pappy, he was always the first to load in and last to load out, willing to lend a hand or his expertise at any given moment.

Earl always had a kind word even when he was being irascible.

A Vietnam Veteran and a survivor of the Rock & Roll wars.

He will be missed by all that worked with him and knew him.

A loyal Brother until the end.

See you and the rest of the guys when we get there to join you on the stage of after life.

ALLMAN BROTHERS ICON DICKEY BETTS EXPLAINS HIS DECISION TO RETURN TO THE STAGE IN THIS EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK AT AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF THE BIG INTERVIEW, AIRING TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18 AT 9pE/6pP

Los Angeles, CA (December 13, 2018) – Dickey Betts—the acclaimed guitarist, songwriter, and founding member of the seminal Southern Rock outfit The Allman Brothers Band—joins Dan Rather for an all-new episode of The Big Interview, airing Tuesday, December 18 at 9pE/6pP.

In this exclusive preview, Betts discusses what drove him to return to performing after hanging up his guitar in 2014. He explains, “I missed it. I just done it so long… I really started missing being on the road and, you know, getting out and doing things like this. Meeting people.” He likens his return to that of another legend, who enjoyed success after a brief hiatus, saying, “I feel kinda like Tiger Woods coming back. [After] four-and-a-half years, I’m really trying to play par, ya know. I don’t think you ever quite feel like you’re there, but I’m getting’ better at it.” Watch it here.

Also during the discussion, Betts examines his role in keeping The Allman Brothers Band’s tremendous legacy alive; reflects on the ups and downs of his relationship with the legendary Gregg Allman, with whom Betts was able to make peace before the singer’s death in 2017; and details his creative process in writing landmark hits such as “Ramblin’ Man” and “Jessica,” to name only a few, which were widely responsible for the band’s meteoric rise.

To see more of this insightful episode, tune in to The Big Interview on Tuesday, December 18 at 9pE/6pP, only on AXS TV.
