Warren Haynes: The Timeline Of Sco-Mule And Beyond

Warren Haynes: The Timeline Of Sco-Mule And Beyond

By all accounts, Warren Haynes is known to be an upbeat forward-thinking individual. In this recent conversation however, he is borderline ebullient. And why not? Last October he aided immeasurably in bringing the forty-five year career of the Allman Brothers Band to a spectacular close. By the time of that historic appearance at New York’s […]

Glide Magazine Reviews Sco-Mule – 9/10

In their campaign to revivify the power trio concept originated by Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Gov’t Mule always emphasized improvisation. Five years into that initiative, the band in its initial configuration of guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and drummer Matt Abts, began to alternately fine-tune and expand their approach to jamming by […]

Jan 26, 2015 When Gov’t Mule paired with John Scofield during Sept. 1999 for a pair of shows in Georgia, Warren Haynes acknowledges it “was definitely a head-scratcher” for the Mule’s then-burgeoning fan base. “I think there were some people in the audience that had no idea we were going to do that much instrumental music and that […]

Yahoo! Live Highlights: Week 17 – Gov’t Mule

Jan 23, 2015 Sometimes when Gov’t Mule breaks out the song “If Heartaches Were Nickels,” fans mistake it for a Joe Bonamassa cover, since that fiery guitar hero has made it a staple of his set ever since he recorded it in 2000. Gov’t Mule didn’t begin playing it on tour until 2013; even now it shows up […]

Jan 21, 2015 Since the news came out that Gov’t Mule—the power trio that began as a part-time side project for then-Allman Brothers Band guitarist/singer Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody but which, along with drummer Matt Abts, was so well-received that the southern-roots jam band ultimately took on an unexpected life of its own—was finally releasing Sco-Mule, […]

Relix Magazine Review: Dark Side of the Mule & Stoned Side of the Mule: Vol. 1

Dec 29, 2014 When one artist covers another artist, particularly on some fairly seminal works, there are two schools of thought. Should the songs be played close to the vest, adhering fairly tightly to the originals, or should the remakes be wild and expansive, using the originals as foundations from which to jump into the unknown? Gov’t Mule […]
