Gov't Mule gives Haynes time to shine away from Allman Brothers

By Tom Boyd

April 9, 2008 —  The memory of Allman Brothers guitarist Duane Allman will live forever, never mind that he died more than 35 years ago.

Thatís a good thing for the memory of the rock virtuoso, but itís not always good for Warren Haynes, who took his place when the band re-formed in 1989 after a half-decade hiatus, because every time Warren Haynes takes the stage with the legendary jam band, even 35 years later, there are those who will always see Haynes as Duaneís replacement.

Not so with Govít Mule, where Haynes will take his lead role Thursday night at Dobson Arena for a night of guitar-heavy jam rock as part of Vailís Spring Back to Vail extravaganza.

With Mule, Haynes has created a vehicle for his own rock tour-de-force, and his subsequent fame from joining the Allman Broís has helped make Govít Mule one of the most well-liked bands in the jam circuit.

Which makes the fact that I havenít seen them a crime Ė one which I intend to correct Thursday night at Dobson Arena.

And when I get there, I'm not going to be looking back at Allman Brothers' past - I'll be cheersing to Gov't Mule's future.
