Derek Trucks Shows Us Three Top Axes from His Touring Rig

Derek Trucks’ playing and gear choices are truly judicious. Though he has a signature Gibson SG, live he typically prefers his Gibson Custom Dickey Betts SG, aged by Tom Murphy. That it was a gift from Duane Allman’s daughter lends it a sentimental value and a sense of familial connection.

Keep on Growing: Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Trey Anastasio & Doyle Bramhall II Discuss ‘Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN’)’

Although the audience at the LOCKN’ festival on August 24, 2019, knew that Trey Anastasio would be joining the Tedeschi Trucks Band for a set of music, they had no idea what was in store for them. If the opening song “I Looked Away,” with bonus guest Doyle Bramhall II didn’t quite give it away, then, by the time the collective launched into “Bell Bottom Blues,” most everyone realized what was afoot: a performance of Derek & The Dominos’ double album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. One of the most celebrated releases in rock history, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs features a guitar summit between Eric Clapton and Duane Allman, a year prior to Allman’s fatal 1971 motorcycle accident. Of course, the other players are magnificent as well—Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon had all impressed Clapton when they opened for Blind Faith with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends.

Neal Francis Announces New Album, ‘In Plain Sight,’ Releases First Single Ft. Derek Trucks

Chicago singer, songwriter, and pianist Neal Francis is ATO Records’ newest signing, and he has announced his new album In Plain Sight, due out November 5. After returning home from touring on the back of his 2019 debut album Changes, Francis went through a breakup and found himself living in a church, where he ended up writing a series of new songs about honesty and resilience. “I’m owning up to all my problems within my relationships and my sobriety,” he says. “So much of it is about coming to the understanding that I continue to suffer because of those problems. It’s about acknowledging that and putting it out in the open in order to mitigate the suffering and try to work on it, instead of trying to hide everything.”
