Not only can he play, sing and write... but he’s also a great human being. I’ve met him a few times and he is always kind, polite and willing to chat with fans. Gotta love that.
that's a killer guitar tone...is that the Soldano?
Agreed, that is an ideal tone. Anyone know the answer to this?
Did not know that. I always thought it was a blend of the two.His core tone 15+ years ago was the SLO and he still has one onstage, but most of the time you’re hearing that red Diaz head as his tone foundation. Most of the time the SLO is there too if he needs it. I have seen a ton of recent vids where the SLO isn’t plugged in..
My understanding is the Diaz is his "clean" tone, and the SLO is for heavier gain (like on a lot of the early Mule stuff). He uses each amp separately.Did not know that. I always thought it was a blend of the two.
Massive fan. Might have seen him 200 times among all the bands he's been in. Seems like a good guy as well the brief times I have chatted with him.
We brought him a puke green National to try out and sat in the Mule bus just chatting away. Great guy. He passed on the National (but the late/great Allen Woody bought a Maton bass from us). We talked cars (he was following the bus in his used BMW with "DEDHED" plates), road food, etc..Not only can he play, sing and write... but he’s also a great human being.

Not sure they have an opening band for the remainder of the tour. They usually play two 90+ minute sets and an encore or two (time permitting).Me and Mrs. Fat will be seeing the Mule on Oct. 1 in Knoxville (part of a mini-whirlwind "...ville" vacation to include Greenville, SC + Asheville, NC + Knoxville, TN.) Would like to work Nashville in there but probably won't. It has the makings of a Cash "I've Been Everywhere" style song.
Back to my original reason for being here; does anyone know who's opening for Gov't Mule currently?
And hopefully not too mushy but a great guy, welcoming all kinds of collaberations and guests on stage with him. The one disagreement with an obvious jackass? Still no comment from Warren but he wrote a song about it: "mr high & mighty". A perfect response from a singer/player/songwriter. The man's a badass.Warren is the complete package
Saw him with ABB back in the early 90s. They really rocked!
We saw them maybe close to 15 years ago. Time and other factors have conspired to make remembering much about the event (including set length) a big challenge.Not sure they have an opening band for the remainder of the tour. They usually play two 90+ minute sets and an encore or two (time permitting).
If this is your first Mule show, it will not be your last. They bring it live.
Cris Robinson of the Black Crowes promised a collaberation, album, tour, not sure which but after it was all set up, CR just turned his back on it. There must have been something in the way he did it to prompt Warren to put it to song. Pretty damn cool IMO.
