Warren Haynes, guitarist
Gov't Mule ~ Allman Brothers Band

Warren Haynes

April 6, 1960, Asheville, NC

From his start with country hell raiser David Allan Coe, to 16 years with the Allman Brothers, to the heavy and melodic improvisation of Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes has blazed a trail that draws on the best of American music. With the voice of an old-school soul shouter and the guitar prowess of a legend, Haynes is both a formidable band leader and a blistering sideman who cares deeply about music. ~ Gibson/Backstage Pass: Warren Haynes Interview ~ 2007 © Gibson

Q: Do you put any stock in being named the 23rd best guitar player by Rolling Stone? ~ A: Not really. I try not to put much stock into those kinds of things because they are just people's opinions. Music is not a competitive sport. It is not something that you can measure whether this person is better than that person. If something connects with you as a listener than that's what's important. It doesn't matter why. It is nice, though, to feel like you're being recognized or honored for all the hard work that you put into something. ~ Dallas Observer: Warren Haynes Interview ~ February 18, 2010 © Dallas Observer

Displaying controlled intensity, he's a meaty and masterful slide player, as well as a soulful singer and songwriter. ~ 2003 © Rolling Stone
