Allman Brothers Band Address Lineup Speculation
Allman told Rolling Stone that bassist Oteil Burbridge had left the band, saying "Oteil's not with us anymore. I don't know if he'll be back to the Beacon or not. He's gone with Zac Brown."
Burbridge released a statement on his website to clarify the situation. "Wow, what a surprise to wake up on the first day of 2014 to a wildfire in the rumor mill!," he wrote. "For the record . It was an amazing experience recording and playing with the Zac Brown Band and with Dave Grohl in November. It was an awesome time and a reunion of sorts for me with old friends Chris Fryar, Penn Robertson, and Eric Pretto (the drummer, bass tech and guitar tech for ZBB, respectively) who I've known for over a decade. I am proud to be part Zac's record."
"Oteil was offered a gig with another band but he turned it down," added drummer Butch Trucks. "He is as much the bass player with the Allman Brothers today as he has ever been." more on this story
