Dickey at Rock Hall Benefit

On Friday, March 21, 2003, Dickey joined Spencer Davis, Gary U.S. Bonds, Reggie Calloway, Peter Frampton, Bill Haley's Comets, and others at a benefit concert in Cleveland for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Education Department. Backed by the evening's house band, Dickey opened with "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed." While Dickey obviously provided the guitar highlights, he also showed great leadership ability. Although playing with a somewhat unfamilar group, he gave them plenty of room to step out during the song, something they clearly appreciated and responded to. The second selection, "Southbound," also gave the group some jamming room and had the audience dancing in front of the stage. Dickey closed his portion of the show with an energetic "Ramblin' Man," which included a nice keyboard solo and Dickey guitar solo between the first and second stanzas. Later, Dickey would join everyone onstage for the final "jam session," a rousing "Rock Around the Clock." Dickey clearly enjoyed the Comets' performance- five guys in their late 60s to early 80s who could still play. Of course, the Dickey Betts fans would have liked to have had him play longer, but the nature of the show necessitated adherance to the time-schedule. But overall, it was an enjoyable evening for seeing Dickey enjoying himself and catching some rare performances.

I was glad to read Joe Knap's review of Dickey's participation in the show helping out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, because I've seen Dickey in concert numerous times but not recently. In my experience, Dickey has always been willing to give the other mu- sicians on stage leeway to do their thing. He's able to accomodate his playing to all situations. Besides producing melodic solos, Dickey plays beautiful rhythm guitar. I always enjoy listening to him!
