Dicky_betts Dicky Betts, former lead guitarist and one of the founding members of the Allman Brothers, rocked Maddie’s in Malvern in front of a sold out crowd last night. Dicky took the stage at 8:47 and the crowd went wild. Some 1st set highlights included Statesboro Blues, Stormy Monday (the girl singing had some great pipes) and an awesome version of Blue Sky.

Unfortunately my compadres were a little too loopy to make it past the first song of the 2nd set, but I kept on keepin’ on. And I was not disappointed. He jammed out Southbound and a great Elizabeth Reed just to name a few. I also got to see two hot chics making out. Maddie’s was about 80% guys and I think everyone’s attention was focused on these two at one time or another. It was hot.

For the encore Dicky gave us Jessica and Ramblin’ Man. Jessica was phenominal, he could have walked off stage after that and I would have been ecstatic, but no, he goes into Ramblin’ Man….unbelievable. The show ended at 12:12 with the crowd going insane. The guy is a legend.
