To my surprise, founding member Dickey Betts was jettisoned from the band shortly after the Beacon run in 2000. I've just gotten tickets to the Allman Brothers with high hopes for a smokin' show in Milwaukee. Replacing Betts was Jimmy Herring from the Aquarium Rescue Unit. Although Herring is a great guitar player in his own right, the Herring/Trucks combo was bland and rather uninspiring. Herring left after the tour.
