Allman Brothers Band Not Splitting After All?
The band could now continue with new members.
Gregg Allman is reportedly now saying that Allman Brothers Band will continue after the departure of guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes.
Back in January, Gregg said the band would call it quits at the end of this year, after 45 years together.
Allman is now saying however that the band will instead find new guitarists: “As for the rumor of the brothers breaking up after 45 years, in other words, after this year,” Gregg told Radio.com. “That is a rumor. We are not breaking up. We are replacing Derek Trucks.”
Drummer Butch Trucks added: "We’re right at the top of our game right now so that argument goes both ways; if you’re at the top of your game then why quit but then if it’s time to quit then you may as well do it while you’re at the top of the game. We don’t want to turn into a nostalgia act, you know? There are enough of those out there.”
