Allman Brothers Guitarist Dickey Betts Hospitalized After Fall
(Sarasota, FL) — The Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts is in a hospital in critical condition after a fall at his Florida home. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune says that the 74-year-old fell and cracked his head while playing with his dog in his backyard on Monday. His manager describes his condition as critical, but stable. He’s scheduled for surgery Friday to relieve swelling on his brain. Just last month Betts suffered a stroke that forced him to cancel tour dates, but he had been responding well to treatment.
