^^ Dickey playing Blue Sky, 5/15/2018.

Aside the sloppy playing, and the Bob Weir tempo, he totally misses his cue at 2:25.
:shock:

Alcohol will f!*k a man up, sometimes permanently. I know this from first hand experience; the stuff nearly killed me. It's so very sad to see. I love Dickey's contributions over the decades to the Allmans; they are giant and iconic.

It's the Gary Richrath story all over again.

Hot Lanta 5/15/18. Not any better. Dickey's solo starts around 3:00.

I feel bad for the band. They aren't bad. You can tell that they know it is garbage.

Remember how bummed we were when Dickey Cancelled Sunshine Blues fest, and we got stuck with Roger Creager instead?


Dodged a bullet there. :roll:

This is less bad. :?

The solo at around 4:30 mark is at least on time and in tune. Not exactly earth shattering notes, but less sloppy than that Hotlanta one above.


I think he just sounds so bad because Damon Fowler is so good...

Yeah, we'll go with that. :lol:

Yup. All the bum notes, the late cues, the missed fills... those are all Dickey's. The rest of the guys are working valiantly to drag him along. I've been in a support role on a gig or two like that, and it's like having someone drilling on your teeth without a strong anesthesia.

The other video(s) that were taken down were from right up front, and from that vantage, there was no mistaking who is on the money and who is unable to keep up. It's probably why they took them down.

Either he was shitfaced for this gig, which is bad enough and certainly irresponsible... or, he's developing a wet brain, which is even worse. Because there really isn't any coming back from that. That's a one way trip.

Dang it......hopefully it was just a rehearsal! But then again it should have been to tweak things, and it needed way more than a tweek ! Going to rain on the Boca show, Saturday the 19th. Wanted to spend the morning at the park next to the amphitheater for a bike ride , but it may be a wash out! Pretty unlucky because The Peace River Revival got rained out for Devon/Duane... and I was really looking forward to see Devon this week! Oh well “stuff “ happens? Taking the day off either way!!!

What gets me through is the memory of the Spring or Mag he played 10-11 years ago, and they killed it. I believe his son was with him and they were tight. I also saw Dickey with ABB in G'ville 25 or so years ago when I was a kid. Free show at UF and I got dragged there by my friend's mom. I will remember those, and try hard to forget what I just saw.
