Butch Trucks To Retire Dickey Bashing After Next Beacon Run

Founding Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks has confirmed that will offer his final rehashed criticisms and ad hominem attacks of Dickey Betts at the close of the group’s 2012 Beacon Theater Run. As previously reported, the legendary group has performed 200 shows at the New York Theater. Trucks—who has been at odds with Dickey Betts in the media since early 2000—will tour behind his Betts insults this summer. When asked about the Allman Brothers Band’s 200th show at the Beacon, Trucks replied, “We hope to break out some of our favorite Dickey jabs before bringing this thing to an end—have I ever described how he eats a danish?”
