Tedeschi Trucks Band Covers “Whipping Post” In The Allman Brothers’ Native Macon, GA [Videos]

first_imgOn Friday evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band continued their ongoing winter tour with a stop at City Auditorium in Macon, GA, the ancestral home of the Allman Brothers Band–a group to whom TTB is inextricably tied.  Guitarist Derek Trucks, in addition to being the nephew of longtime Allmans drummer Butch Trucks, played with the band from a young age through their final shows in 2014, an extended residency at The Beacon Theatre in New York City. Keeping with that tradition, Tedeschi Trucks Band has co-opted the tradition of extended Beacon residencies (this year, they celebrated their 25th Beacon show, and followed that up with two more for good measure).With a scheduled performance in Macon on their list of tour dates, many wondered how the band would acknowledge the Allman connection on Friday night. After a thrilling if standard performance, that question was answered with a standout “Whipping Post” set closer, the Macon crowd roaring in approval as Derek wailed away.You can watch a clip of TTB’s “Whipping Post” closer in Macon below via YouTube user EBlaier:“Whipping Post”You can also watch an assortment of other audience clips from the performance below:“Sugaree” “I Pity The Fool” via EBlaier“Bound For Glory” Tedeschi Trucks Band continues their tour tonight with the first of two shows this weekend in Asheville, NC.

Difficult for Lionel Messi to remain with Barcelona: Father Jorge Messi

first_imgBARCELONA: It will be difficult for Lionel Messi to remain at Barcelona after he made public his desire to leave the Spanish club, his father and agent Jorge Messi said on Wednesday as he arrived in the city to negotiate his son’s future.After flying in on a private jet, Jorge Messi is expected to meet club president Josep Maria Bartomeu later on Wednesday to discuss his son’s future, Spanish media reported. A club spokesman declined to comment. The six-times world player of the year insists he has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave on a free transfer – a claim disputed by Barcelona and La Liga, who say the Argentine can only leave if a rival club is willing to pay a 700 million euro ($830.20 million) buyout clause. “I don’t know, I know nothing,” Messi’s father told Spanish TV channel Cuatro when asked if the 33-year-old would leave the only club he has played for professionally. But when pressed if it would be hard for him to remain, he said “yes”. And asked how he sees Messi’s future at Barcelona, he replied “difficult, difficult.” He dodged questions on whether Manchester City would be a good option for his son. A move to Manchester City would allow Messi to link up with his former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola. “I don’t know, there’s nothing yet,” he said, adding he had not had any discussions with Guardiola, who enjoyed trophy-laden years as Barcelona manager with Messi in his pomp. Messi did not show up on Monday for the first training session of the season under new coach Ronald Koeman. Meanwhile according to a report on Wednesday, Messi is set to join Manchester City in a massive five-year deal worth 700m euros. The 33-year-old preferred the move to City over other top clubs was the chance to play in the English Premier League and also reunite with former Barca coach Pep Guardiola.(Agencies) Also Watch: Watch: Patient Being Taken to Hospital in Hand Cartlast_img read more
