Butch Trucks Wants Allman Brothers To Wrap Up At MSG

Tonight, the Allman Brothers Band kick off what's expected to be guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes's last Beacon residency and possibly the bands as well. There's been lots of band member interviews flying around in recent days and following yesterday's revelation that the group plans to tour this fall comes more details about the plan for the rest of 2014.

In a just-published interview with Jambands.com, drummer Butch Trucks shares the following about a possible Allman Brothers Band finale at Madison Square Garden, "The schedule now is that in October we’ll do a run where we hit some bigger venues and then if this is going to be it and, if we can work it out, we’ll wind it all up at Madison Square Garden."

Trucks also addresses the group's future beyond 2014, "There is a possibility that we will continue in another form. The band as it is now is not going to continue. The changes that we’re talking about would be incredible but it would be different instrumentation, a different sound. It’s like what we did with Chuck Leavell after Duane and took it in another direction for a little while."

Would a post-Derek/Warren version of the band be similar to what Phil Lesh and Bob Weir did with Furthur? Only time will tell. Head to Jambands.com for the full interview.
