Haynes discusses the end of the Allmans, jamming with the members of the Grateful Dead and his new solo album, “Ashes and Dust.”
Haynes first joined the band 25 years ago; Trucks has been a member for 15 years.
Instead of doing an album of duets, on “Shout!,” Gov’t Mule took a novel approach, removing Warren Haynes’ vocals from the record and replacing them with an all-star cast of singers like Dr. John, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Dave Matthews, Steve Winwood and Elvis Costello.
Gov’t Mule is almost finished with a new release that we’re hoping to have out in September.
Mountain Jam, held at Hunter Mountain in New York, is curated by guitarist/singer Warren Haynes, who is front man of Gov’t Mule, a member of the Allman Brothers Band, and a solo artist.
Warren Haynes keeps a busy schedule: He’s one-half of the guitar team in the Allman Brothers Band, he leads his own group Gov’t Mule, he has a solo band, and he occasionally plays solo acoustic shows.
