Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks to leave the Allman Brothers Band... a few thoughts.

Jan 09, 2014 -- 8:54am

Both Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks want to concentrate on their other projects. I just want to put a few suggestions to the involved and potentially involved parties out there in case anyone talks to them.

 

1.  Warren and Derek:  You guys are awesome.  What you brought to the band was nothing short of amazing.  Go with no guilt and continue to be awesome.  Gov't Mule, The Warren Haynes Band, Derek Trucks Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band....you guys got plenty to do.

2.  To the fans.  It'll be ok.  Really.  This is not a case of "musical differences" or BS like it.  They will share the stage again.  Probably a number of times.  

3.  To Gregg Allman, Dickie Betts, and Devon Allman.  Guys, this your chance.  Rip through 2014, and then have a chat.  Dickie and Gregg, it's time.  Even if just for a while.  The Band will be approaching it's 50th anniversary before too long.  A huge family reunion is in order.  Devon is an amazing guitarist, as you may know from his shows at the Boathouse.  You can see him Saturday night at Pirates Cove in North Myrtle Beach.  Think of it....The Allman Borthers Band with 2 Allmans and Richard Betts.  

Ahhhh.  A Fan can dream, can't he?
