Warren Haynes is undoubtedly a great guitarist. By the early 90s, when he was admitted to the Allman Brothers he stood out so much that pale fear fell upon some old members of the group. Dickey Betts clearly stood out, despite the fact that twenty years before he was considered a great instrumentalist. Guys came to terms, however, so that Haynes does not dominate the group, brought as much as he had to pay, with excellent effect anyway.
However, when the Allman Brothers produced less and less music, Haynes, much younger than the veteran team, had no place to go wild. He summoned two other musicians and formed Gov’t Mule, which recorded like crazy (15 albums in 15 years, dozens of covers, countless concerts). As if that were not enough, Haynes recorded with other musicians and produced solo albums.
Haynes bands were great. All members have had some influence on the final music, and each part was bring something positive.
