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.

Dickey Betts to Tour in 2018
 
Posted on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 02:35 PM

Dickey Betts announced today, on his birthday, December 12, that he will return to the road for a select group of dates in 2018.

As reported in an exclusive interview in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Dickey said “Everywhere I go fans keep saying they want me to get out and play again ... I think the time is right.”

The 2018 concert dates will feature Betts peppering his setlists with songs written by Gregg Allman, whose credits include “Midnight Rider,” “Melissa” and “Whipping Post.” The 23-minute live version of “Whipping Post” from the Allman Brothers Band’s masterful, breakthrough album “At Fillmore East” famously features the dual lead guitar playing of Betts and Duane Allman.
“I think the fans deserve to hear a few of Gregg’s song as well, so I’m pulling out some classics,” Betts said.

“We really gave this a lot of thought as to how and what the show will be,” Spero said. “Even I can’t wait to see it.” 

The Dickey Betts Band hitting the road in 2018 will consist of Dickey and son Duane sharing lead guitar duties.

“Dickey is talking to some of the guys he has played with,” Spero said. “We should know in a couple of weeks who will comprise the band.”
