It's been a month since someone posted in B.O.'s forum, so let me do the honor showing him some love and respect.

Exactly jfnoise --
there's an interesting post written by Mark Greenberg on Dickey's website -- it's not just the chops a musician brings to the stage, but what kind of person he is inside, Mark writes, that helps determine how he sounds -- BO was a product of his times, someone who was a musician, but also a brother -- no better or worse than the other nine guys he traveled with. That spirit is what helped define the sound that resulted in those early albums and the Fillmore live set -- as Red Dog said in his book, "all for one and one for all."
As an article in Bass Player magazine said about Berry's playing, "It was his attitude, coming through his fingers."

There's a story that Duane wanted Berry so badly for his band he announced he'd steal BO from The Second Coming. Someone told him it was impossible; Berry and Dickey were as close as brothers. Duane replied, "Then I'll just steal Dickey, too!"

I'm glad he did.

You're very kind to have shared this wonderful family photo Jerry -- thank you.
That's the shortest I've ever seen Berry's hair before.

in the life of a musician there are many influences but none more deserving of accolades and respect than berry oakley. as an influence on the band leadership and the music through his personality and playing and serving as a bridge between rock and roll/ r and b to jazz, he remains one of the handfull of rock and roll bass players that helped me chart a course towards more than "standard" accompaniment(i.e. playing very close to what the bass drum pattern is all the time).

(reading that berry was a altar boy and geniunely good person fills me with joy since i've had a lot of grief over the years for being a "dope smoking heathen", as i also grew up serving in my church as torchbearer, crucifer, jr and sr servers assisting during communion with the wine and wafers. whoops, drifted off topic there but boy, how cool is it to find out one of your heros and influences was an acolyte too!)


anyways, a great musician, a great man and a great influence on many, i just wanted to say that from the day when (as a stoned 16 year old) that i finally "heard" what he was doing on "rambling man"(and boy, was that something i couldn't explain, being drawn to the bass line of a song i'd heard so many times like that) to my epiphanies about bass lines through the work on "dreams", the fillmore album, "les brers" and the eat a peach mtn jam solo, my life was and continues to be changed and there ain't no going back.

so i say thank you, Lord, for the blessings that are the allman brothers band music and the musicians who created it. berry deserves his place as an important bassist like paul mccartney, john entwistle and jack bruce do, because they earned it making music, not putting on a circus show. real musicians play music and that feller sure did bring a lot of jazz to the table! whoooo hoooooo!!!

there's some love for ya on a fine spring day. r.i.p. B.O.!!!

Jerry, you got a date on that photo? Like Stephen said, I've never seen Berry's hair that short, with the exception of the one early photo of him with the Guilld bass and Kim Payne sitting on the side of the stage.

Looks like Dickey on the horse, and maybe the blonde hair belongs to Candace, or is that Big Linda?

Berry was one of my earliest favorite bass players, and he remains at the top of that list. So imaginative! My band recently decided to try "Revival", and I always get a whole new level of appreciation for Berry when trying to figure out--or even get close to--his bass parts! Thank you, BO!
