Dickey Betts in Aspen

Dickey Betts / Great SouthernSouthern rocker Dickey Betts and his band, Great Southern jammed at 8,000 feet tonight in Aspen.  Best known as a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Betts is one of the greatest rock guitarists in history.  He is ranked #58 on the all-time list by Rolling Stone Mag. His incendiary riffs are some of the most recognizable in R & R. For many, his licks define Southern Rock.Dickey Betts / Blue Sky

Betts who will turn 66 in December, attracted a rowdy crowd composed mostly of his contemporaries. "It's an over 50 show" quipped one of the partiers in the mosh pit.  AARP member or not DB can still "kill it" on the axe.  He played all his classics like Blue Sky, In Memory of Eliz. Reed and Ramblin' Man along with several sustained jams featuring his son Duane Betts on lead.  (Guess who the kid is named after?).

It was a return to action for AspenSpin, and it felt gooooooooooood.
