Right off I'm a big Allman fan but also a pretty heavy listener to Bill only era Dead. As much as I love the Allmans rhythm section rarely if ever have I dug other dual drummer bands. That's doesn't just apply to the Dead. Also some of the other southern rock groups that took that up at the time. It just seemed unnecessary for some of the stock rhythms they were playing. Anyway my main question was if anyone had ever heard Butch expound on his thoughts on the Dead's double drumming. You can see his reaction in the first 12 seconds of this clip when they're mentioned.
