Guitarist Dickey Betts retired from performing in 2014, but 4 and a half years later the Allman Brothers co-founder got bored and returned to the stage. Betts thrilled the crowd at Long Island’s Great South Bay Music Festival this summer and was looking forward to hitting the road again in November until he fell in what his family is calling a ‘freak accident’ in his backyard this past Monday!
