Last month, Billboard.com featured a nice Q&A session with non-stop guitarist Warren Haynes. In the interview, he discusses recording the new Gov’t Mule album and touring with Mule, the Allman Brothers, and the Dead:
We did a few Mule shows prior to the Beacon with the Allman Brothers (in March), and that started out a busy year. We went straight from the Beacon to Dead rehearsals, and then bounced back and forth all year between the three bands. I just feel like the opportunities I have now are amazing. They’re opportunities that I’d never turn down. So if that means I’m busier than I thought I would be, or away from home more than I wish, that’s just part of it. I have the best job in the world, so it would be ridiculous for me to complain about the few negatives that go along with it.
