Dickey Betts fell while playing with his dog in the backyard of his Sarasota, Florida home Monday night (9/17). The Sarasota Herald Tribune reported that the former Allman Brothers Band guitarist struck his head in a fall and was hospitalized for a brain bleed. His manager described his condition Wednesday as 'Stable but critical'. A surgical procedure to relieve pressure was expected to be performed Friday.
Dickey has been through plenty of trials and tribulations in his life and career. We hope he can rally and pull through this one. He's still one hulluva guitarist.
