About THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND : In 1994, the always-morphing line-up of the Allman Brothers Band consisted of the four living members of the original band – Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson – all who had reunited for their 20th Anniversary tour in 1989 – and added players including guitarist Warren Haynes (the new “hardest working man in show business”), bassist Allen Woody and drummer/percussionist Marc Quinones. Driven by strong play on AOR stations, the record ultimately went gold, but it turned out to be the last one that Mr. Betts would play on, with Mr. Haynes replacing him permanently in 2001. Derek Trucks soon joined the line up after Dickie left, and Oteil taking up Bass player duties after the sad passing of Allen Woody. The Band is recently celebrating its 40th anniversary performing to sold out crowds.
