There aren't many people who can claim to have played in the Allman Brothers Band and in The Dead (the "rump" of the Grateful Dead) as well as in their own solo vehicles - such as Gov't Mule. In fact only one person can make that claim - jam band guitar supremo Warren Haynes. He's currently undertaking a European tour, with a short stop-off in the UK for five dates. With a sound that encompasses the best of the "heavy blues" band styles as well as great handfuls of Southern Rock as well as re-imagining various noteworthy Neil Young and Crazy Horse offerings there's much to anticipate in these dates. Whatever else it may be, powerful and impressive is on the cards.
