Dickey Betts returns to performing following brain surgery

Dickey Betts ended an exciting year of ups and downs on a high note heard by rock fans around the world.

The founding Allman Brothers Band member celebrated his 75th birthday surrounded by loved ones at home on Little Sarasota Bay Dec. 12 and then about a week later appeared as the featured guest on the hit AXS TV show “The Big Interview With Dan Rather.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer concluded the month with a surprise performance, his first following successful brain surgery in September, during a New Year’s Eve show at the Grand Opera House in Macon, Georgia.

The Devon Allman Project performed with special guests Duane Betts (Dickey’s son) and Berry Oakley Jr. (another Sarasota County resident). The three Allman Brothers Band offspring were then joined by Dickey for a performance of his classic instrumental “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
