Dickey Betts

Dickey Betts joined the Allman Brothers Band as second lead guitarist and singer in the late '60s. In addition to matching bandleader Duane Allman lick for lick, Betts also wrote such memorable songs as "Revival" (number 92, 1971) and the instrumental tour de force "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed." After Duane Allman was killed in a road accident in 1971, Betts and Allman's brother Gregg shared leadership of the band, with Betts writing and singing the group's biggest hit, "Ramblin' Man" (number two, 1973). Members of the band began solo careers in 1973, and Betts released his first solo album Highway Call, in 1974. The Allmans split up in 1976, and Betts formed Dickey Betts and Great Southern. The Allmans reformed in 1978, with Betts contributing "Crazy Love" (number 29, 1979), "Angeline" (number 58, 1980), and "Straight From the Heart" (number 39, 1981). But they split again, and both Betts and the Allmans were inactive for several years. Betts returned with the Dickey Betts Band and Pattern Disruptive in 1988, and in 1989 he and a couple of members of his backup band joined a second, more permanent re-formation of the Allmans. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

New Year's Eve warehouse in NOLa Eric Clapton showed up he and Duane you should have been there !!!!! 1970-71
Phenomenal guitarist

Love Dickey and his guitar style. He and Duane were such a great blend and yet very distinct. Dickey, from what I have heard and read is a difficult person. He can be very engaging and smart and then very quickly pissy, stubborn and violent. Alcohol and cocaine abuse have magnified these flaws. Until he sobers up and cleans up he will not change. I pray that he does.

I wish I could have seen Dickey & Duanne play together live .
A Dickey Betts greatest hits CD? Hell don't just start with '73 and end with '88. Revival, IMOER, Jessica, Blue Sky, Les Brers In A Minor, Southbound, High Falls, Louisiana Lou, Back Where It All Begins, No One to Run With and MANY MORE. Just don't let Butch Trucks find out about it. Name the album Best Betts!
bruce20069
'High Falls' is an instrumental on the Allman's album 'Win, Lose, or Draw.'
I can't seem to find one of Dickey's best on Pandora. The song is the title cut from the Allman Bros Album High Falls released around 1976. Anybody have any ideas??????
Red Guitar!
Great song...I dig it..

I was fortunate to catch the ABB when all were alive n healthy about 1970 in Santa Barbara I think, he and Duane were truly incredible together,.as in sync together as any 2 guitarists or musicians I have ever seen...I can still see and hear Mem of Elizabeth Reed forty years later - memorable? you bet it was! Sooooo lucky to see one of the best groups ever and see them at their very best. A great musical experience and memory.

Dicky still plays / tours constantly with a band of great young musicians, same size band as ABB. He's older now and a bit moody some nights, but still plays amazingly, and LOUD, every night. I've seen him twice in the last 4 years at the Infinity Music Hall in Norfolk CT great shows 2-2.5 hours long.
Warren Hayes? puleese all u need to know is that Guitar mag lists Duane as the 2nd greatest guitarist in rock history. Dickey was a completely unique individual craftsman with a completely original sound. Warren Hayes would be working in the highway dept if it wasn't for these guys. He-s nothing but a cover artist. These guys created a genre for chrissakes! Just listen to Duane's ending solo in Liz Reed. That's a gear, with completely unique riffs. I've never heard anyone reach - and he was 24!
yo dicky where you been time to fire that red guitar up you been away too long your the best i know you still got it . reember dickeybetts playin on that red guitar lets here from you bro
Ever hear the Allman Bros. without Dickie....No t the Allman Brothers>
EVER HEAR PONY BOY , TRUE DICKY
djbrady4
Simply one of the best guitar players of our time! A great song writer also with Ramblin Man one of my most favorite songs.
yo dickey where you beenlets get that red guitar strumming again your the bestlooking for you in north jersey soon lets raise the roof on some f***ing joint
that second solo in the Memory of Elizabeth Reed showed the world...I liked those two solo efforts in the 70's ..Dickey is a craftsman, and with the special magic that Lindsey Buckingham brings..Dick e y is a unique and is on a island of his own..!.thoug h maybe its all hype coming from me, due to the history...I believe there is tooooooo many quitarists around the world, that has just as many great credentials. .
yo jimi c i want what your smoking no way in hell is warren haynes better than duane or dickie

vintacco
OK so He drinks a bit! Ialways said, If Dicky didnt sing Rock Blues, He'd be one of the best Country singers EVER!!!!
bc_beach2003
Friggin Awesome
Either way, Steve's description of DB's playing is spot on LOL
@Steve Opilla

Warren is twice the musician Duane or Dickey ever was. Better knowledge of the instrument, better faster hands, etc, etc.
I have always tired of Betts' stratospheri c meandering through scales and half notes. We need a hero like Duane to surface. Not Warren, not Derek.
I love this song...but why isn't the Allman Brothers Band credited with it?? I had the Allman Brothers album...Eat a Peach...with this on it.
No matter what spin anyone tries to put on it (and I am a big fan of Derek and Warren), but without the country-blue s - s w e e t biting tones of Dickey's Les Paul, the band masquerading as the ABB is really just Gregg Allman and Friends.
meadowshire
Still love "Ramblin' Man" after all of these years.
victoryrider
see him often on chicago"s southside ,great romp, play on dickie allman's have trucked on and done real well with warren and others,but still- having dickie as well would have been even better

Dickey Betts was an integral part of the original Allman Brothers sound. His country-Texa s swing style perfectly complimented Duane Allman's gospel-blues style. The Brothers don't quite sound the same since he left. I think Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks are incredibly talented, but their playing styles give a little harder feel that somehow takes away that "Southern" sound they were originally known for. Personal taste,I guess... Rock on Dickey, saw you on Maui around 2002 at Ho'okipa Beach.
One of the greats puts on agreat show. Wish he would have showed up for the brothers 40 at the beacon what a shame.That would have been the time to bury hard feelings.Lon g live the allman brothers peace.
This is the Allman Brothers.
rooshin; according to Betts, Greg Allman called him up and told him he was fired. According to Greg Allman, Betts had a drinking problem that was effecting his ability to play. According to me, Greg Allman felt intimidated by Betts and cut him loose, but how can you get rid of a guy that created your sound? Not very smart on Allmans part, but he does have some pretty awsome guitar slingers now, both of which learned alot from Dickey Betts.
no the Allmans aren't the same W/O Dickey, but Trucks & Haynes fill in nicely.

Dickey has the sweetest tone, fine singer also.
What happened in early 2000 that led to Betts being forced from the Allmans? I have seen both bands since the split and neither has the magic they had when performing together.
Great music , as part of the classic allmonds bros ,he left his mark as a great influence in music....gre a t guitar hero........ . .
LONG LIVE THE CAT IN THE HAT!!!! DICKEY BETTS A GUITAR GOD!!!!! LIVING AMERICAN LEGEND!!!!!!

Thank you Dickey for your musical blessings!!! ! ! !
