Seems like a good time to bump this idea up.

The Allmans are not going to get back together now that Butch died.

Before Butch died there was some possibility; but even if they were going to reunite they would have just used Jack Pearson and Warren. Betts is not in good health and Derek had a festival that was local to Dickey, invited him to play and Dickey did not show up.

At their ages, I don't think there's been any hatchet there to be buried for a long time now -- TheNewt how recent is that info that "Betts is not in good health"?

"Man, in the scheme of life we ain't got no contract"
RIP, brother Butch

For a long time now.

This interview is very difficult to watch. 🙁

Current, that interview is not

haven't heard/read anything else to suggest Dickey is healthy, active & enjoying a hard-earned & well deserved retirement -- all good

Jaimoe is still around, so is Oteil, Marc, Warren, Dickey and the people in Dickey's band. There will not be another ABB here on earth, but there could be some of these musicians playing in different configurations.

Up in heaven Duane is playing with Danny Toler, Berry, Butch, Gregg with others sitting in. Think about it, ABB has an eternal band, since it is heaven, what else would those musicians be doing? And there's no concert curfews with fines if they play too long.

This life we live down here is for us to become the best we possibly can, once we achieve that or God realizes we will never achieve that no matter how long we are here, for various reasons, he calls us home. That's how it works.

I was in a seance the other night and we contacted Duane Allman and he said he has recently joined up with Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra.

You heard it here first!
