Warren Haynes Adds Guitar Wizardry To Many Bands [VIDEO]
Warren Haynes has added guitar solos to a wide variety of bands music including Gov’t Mule, the Dave Matthews Band, the Allman Brothers and The Dead.
The very in-demand musician turned 51 on April 6th and his career shows no signs of slowing down. Haynes’ first break came when he joined David Allan Coe’s band when he was 20 years old. After years of recording and touring with Coe, he left the band along with guitarist Mickey Hayes and they formed the Rich Hippies.
From there he met Dickey Betts and joined his band which led to his gig as guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band. In 1994 he formed Gov’t Mule with Betts’ drummer Matt Abts and Allman Brother’s bassist Allen Woody. Over the years he has been invited to play guitar with several solo members of the Grateful Dead including Bob Weir & Rob Wasserman, Phil Lesh & Friends and The Dead.
The Warren Haynes Band will release Man In Motion on May 10. The band features Ivan Neville on keyboards with help from Ian McLagan, George Porter Jr. on bass and drummer Raymond Weber. They’ll play May 24th and 25th at the Ogden Theatre in Denver.
Warren Haynes also co-wrote the country song “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a Full House” for Garth Brooks.
