Bought two tickets to this show the day before Duane died. The brothers were to begin a New England tour in early November and play Carnegie Hall on Thanksgiving night. They cancelled the first part of the tour and the first gig they played after Duane’s death was on this date. My buddy decided at the last minute he could not attend so I had an extra ticket. I sold it at face value. The days of being young and naive.
The show was great. They play their typical super long show with an encore. I read the other posts about the guest on the stage being J. Giels. My recollection is that the surprise guest was none other than Eric Clapton. He came out for In memory of Elizabeth Reed and played dueling guitars with Dickie Betts until one by one the band walked off and let Eric have the stage for the a few minutes. What a great night.
