Derek, Eric and the Beacon
Yesterday we reported on the Allman Brothers Band 2007 Beacon Theater run. Since the dates fall during a leg of the Eric Clapton North America tour and Derek Trucks has been gigging with that band, a number of our readers sent us emails inquiring who would join Warren Haynes on guitar for these shows (a question we raised ourselves a number of weeks ago). Given the music coming off the stage at the Beacon in 2006, we are happy to report that Trucks will be back with the ABB for its spring run. As for future commitments, at present, neither Clapton nor the Brothers have confirmed any dates beyond April of this year.
