Neal first saw Warren Haynes play with the Allman Brothers Band in 1989 and was blown away by his guitar playing. A few years later, Neal and Warren met and by 1995, Neal was opening for Gov’t Mule in support of his debut album, Fade Away Diamond Time. In this podcast episode, Highway Butterfly co-producer Dave Schools hosts a conversation with Warren about what it was like to play with Neal, how it felt to record “Free To Go” for Highway Butterfly, and more. The new Gov’t Mule album Heavy Load Blues is out on November 12th, learn more at www.warrenhaynes.net/.
