Yahoo! Live Highlights: Week 17 - Gov’t Mule

Sometimes when Gov’t Mule breaks out the song “If Heartaches Were Nickels,” fans mistake it for a Joe Bonamassa cover, since that fiery guitar hero has made it a staple of his set ever since he recorded it in 2000. Gov’t Mule didn’t begin playing it on tour until 2013; even now it shows up in their sets only about once a month, on average.

All About Jazz Review Sco-Mule

Since the news came out that Gov't Mule—the power trio that began as a part-time side project for then-Allman Brothers Band guitarist/singer Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody but which, along with drummer Matt Abts, was so well-received that the southern-roots jam band ultimately took on an unexpected life of its own—was finally releasing Sco-Mule, a collaboration with broad-minded jazz guitarist John Scofield, there's been plenty of speculation and anticipation.

Warren Haynes, A Man of All Seasons and Many Reasons

To blues fans, the dissolution of the Allman Brothers Band is a monumental milestone on the musical calendar and a huge loss to the genre. Forty five years after first putting their souls on the line with improvising guitar flourishes between the late Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, the current iteration of the group brought the curtain down at a final concert at New York’s Beacon Theatre a day before the 43rd anniversary of Duane’s death on October 28, 2014.

Relix Magazine Review: Dark Side of the Mule & Stoned Side of the Mule: Vol. 1

When one artist covers another artist, particularly on some fairly seminal works, there are two schools of thought. Should the songs be played close to the vest, adhering fairly tightly to the originals, or should the remakes be wild and expansive, using the originals as foundations from which to jump into the unknown? Gov’t Mule manages to apply both dimensions on Dark Side of the Mule (Pink Floyd) and Stoned Side of the Mule (Rolling Stones), sticking close enough to each original for happy recognition while adding the distinctive touches that make everything uniquely Mule.
