If you haven't, do yourself a favor and listen to Blue Sky. Thirty second of vocals and 5 minutes of guitars - dual solos. Two masters going at it. Duane goes first and Dickey second (Dickey on vocals).

Thanks for the recommendation. Beautiful sunny song. I’d only ever heard one song by them before (“Please Call Home”).

Loved their music. A great band. I have all their albums.

This one hurts as a Georgian. Not all of the members of the band were from Georgia, but they are very much of Georgia. I wonder if he'll be buried in Macon along with Gregg, Duane, Barry and Butch.

Such a great band that stuck together for so long yet ended with much acrimony and never got resolved before all their deaths. Betts and Gregg really were the heart and soul cause Duane died too early. Deserves more credit as a great guitarist and not considered in the shadows of Duane.
