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.

Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution Exhibit coming to St. Petersburg, FL
 
Posted on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 01:30 PM


Bill Graham holds a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to let you know that the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg is hosting the Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution exhibition from August 18, 2018 through February 10, 2019. A Gibson Les Paul owned by Duane Allman will be on display along with memorabilia, photographs, archival concert footage, historical and new video interviews, ephemera, and psychedelic art.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution is both a deeply personal reflection on Graham’s life and an exploration of how Graham helped transform rock music into the immersive, multi-dimensional, and highly lucrative phenomenon of rock theater that persists today. Treasured photographs and artifacts from Graham’s early life and career will be on loan from the Graham family, many on view to the public for the first time. Also for the first time ever, preparatory drawings and the original artwork of several iconic Fillmore concert posters will be on museum display, revealing the signature visual styles and creative process of poster artists Bonnie MacLean, Wes Wilson, David Singer, Greg Irons, and David Byrd.


This exhibition explores the extraordinary life of Bill Graham (1931- 1991), a renowned music promoter who helped launch and promote the careers of countless rock & roll artists. It also traces the indomitable spirit of a man brought to the United States as an eleven-year-old Jewish refugee fleeing the Nazis, fueling a lifelong passion and advocacy for social justice.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution opens to the public on August 18, 2018 and will be on display through February 10, 2019 at The Florida Holocaust Museum.

The ABB Mourns the Loss of Floyd Miles, Long time Family Member and Brother
 
Posted on Friday, January 26, 2018 - 03:27 PM

The Allman Brothers Band are saddened by the recent passing of our long time friend Floyd Miles.


Floyd was a childhood friend of his Daytona Beach neighbors Duane and Gregg Allman. As a member of The Universals, a seminal local 60’s soul band, he was the singing drummer who schooled the Allman boys in blues, soul and R&B music. He was the friend who took them to the barber shop across the tracks to buy the discs that became the musical foundation that spawned the Allman Brothers Band. In later years he toured as a member of the Gregg Allman Band, regularly singing his song “Back To Daytona” The Allman Brothers Band family and crew will miss this family member and brother, our sincere heartfelt sorrow go out to the Miles family.
