Gov't Mule

Gov't Mule mixes 1960s-style, guitar-driven psychedelia with smoking southern rock. It's no wonder they do it so well -- they've started out with guitar virtuoso Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts and Allen Woody (now deceased) of the Allman Brothers to power their scorching bottleneck jams, making this more than any old side-project (Haynes was Duane Allman's second replacement on guitar and Woody played bass). After Woody was found dead in his New York City hotel room on August 26th, 2000, Gov't Mule decided to record their next album with Flea, Bootsy Collins and Mike Gordon from Phish filling in, instead of immediately finding a replacement. Gordon made a documentary of the process, originally titled On The Banks,(now called Rising Low) which helped propel Gov't Mule into further appreciation by fathoms of jam rock fans. Andy Hess officially replaced Woody when it came time to tour and the band added keyboard player Danny Louis to their lineup.

  • Live At the Mountain Jam Festival, Hunter NY

    Gov't Mule

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 3 hr 8 min

    With 2 million paid song downloads through their site MuleTracks, seven critically acclaimed studio records already released, a handful of DVDs and live albums, plus an ever-expanding fanbase and sold-out coast-to-coast tours, Gov't Mule could easily rest on its laurels. Yet when they're one of the hardest working bands in rock history.

    Haynes explains, "We want By A Thread to be a surprise, so we've made a point not to play any of them live until our fans can get the full impact of the new material."

    The Band Closed off Saturday night at the Mountain Jam Festival with their first show scheduled in 2011. Frontman Warren Haynes promised the crowd a crazy night, and didnt disappoint, leading off with Railroad Boy and Thorazine Shuffle. Mule played a lengthy number of covers in the first set, including ZZ Tops Nasty Dogs And Funky Kings, The Whos Wont Get Fooled Again, and closed the first set with Black Sabbaths War Pigs. The second set also featured several covers, including the lead-off Money and Have a Cigar by Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones Angie. The highlight of the night was a lengthy 32/20 Blues, which featured Cody Dickinson on electric washboard, Luther Dickinson on guitar, and Hook Herrera on harmonica.
