CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Ventilator Blues - Gov't Mule


NPR tipped me to this band a long time ago...now that is wierd...finding out about a band from NPR... but there is Warren Haynes belting out Grinnin In Your Face... I was hooked. That was a long time ago
Gov't Mule (pronounced Government Mule) is a Southern rock jam band formed in 1994 as an Allman Brothers Band side project by Warren Haynes and Allen Woody.
The band released their debut album Gov't Mule in 1995. Gov't Mule has become a staple act at music festivals across North America, with both its members and frequent guests boasting members from other notable bands, adding various funk and blues rock elements to the band's sound.
When The Allman Brothers Band reformed in 1989 in response to the popularity of their Dreams box set, Warren Haynes was added on lead guitar and Allen Woody joined on bass guitar. The two shared a love for 1960s power trios like Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, the James Gang and Mountain.[1][2] Haynes, Woody, and drummer Matt Abts, who played with Haynes in the Dickey Betts Band, came together as Gov't Mule during Allman Brothers breaks. They released their debut album Gov't Mule in 1995. Live from Roseland Ballroom was released in 1996, consisting of their 1995 New Year's Eve set opening for Blues Traveler.

When The Allman Brothers Band were not forthcoming with any new material, Haynes and Woody left to concentrate full-time on Gov't Mule in 1997.
