Dickey Betts’ Taste of Tesla
Dickey Betts brought his current group to San Francisco last night for a gig at Slim’s. The current incarnation of Betts’ Great Southern includes his son Duane on second guitar and occasional vocals. However, last night’s gig also witnessed the participation of another family member. Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon, who is married to Betts’ daughter, attended the show at Slim’s. He emerged during the second set to join his father-in-law for a version of ‘Southbound.’
Next up for Great Southern is a performance in Aspen at Belly Up on Thursday. Hannon will return to the road with Tesla later this month.
