When I interviewed Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts back in July of 1991, the band had just released its Shades of Two Worlds album, its second to feature the amazing Warren Haynes as a fully fledged member.

As on the previous year’s Seven Turns album, Betts and Haynes had written or cowritten the vast majority of the songs, and when I asked Dickey about that he brought up Gregg Allman‘s struggles with writer’s block.

Have a listen:
