The Allman Brothers Band disbanded in 2014, but members of the last iteration of the legendary Southern Rock group remain active in other musical ventures. Oteil Burbridge was welcomed as a member of the Dead & Company. In a recent interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, the bass player drew some parallels between the two groups. 'The Dead tends to be the avant garde side, a little more freewheeling, with a wide breadth of different scopes of music. But they definitely have some similarities.' He also let fly some news that will be welcome to fans of his former band when he said, 'Gregg (Allman) texted us not long ago, saying: 'Hey, maybe we should start thinking about getting something together in 2017.' Burbridge says, 'I'm always waiting for that call.'
