Dickey Betts is a former member of the Allman Brothers band and is a composer, singer/songwriter and guitarist. Dickey Betts built his net worth through his years with the Allman Brothers, the many songs he composed, his solo performances, as well as his own band, The Dickey Betts Band. He was born in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Forrest Richard "Dickey" Betts (born December 12, 1943) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, and composer best known as a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. He was inducted with the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and also won with the band a best rock performance Grammy Award for his instrumental "Jessica" in 1996.

In 1969, Duane Allman had parlayed success as a session player into a contract with former Otis Redding manager Phil Walden.
