Gary Collaborates on New Song with Warren Haynes
Gary, no stranger to songwriting collaboration—he was Grammy-nominated
for Joan Osborne's "Spider Web", and co-author of Jeff Buckley's "Mojo
Pin" and "Grace" (which incidentally has attained anthemic status in
France, where "Grace" is ritually played at least once a day on hip
Parisian-based Oui FM)—recently united with former Allman Brothers slide
guitarist and Government Mule mainman Warren Haynes, for a hot new track
on the upcoming double release due in the fall from Government Mule, one
of the nation's premier jam bands.
The track, entitled "World of
Confusion", appears on Government Mule's new two volume album The Deep
End, out mid-October on ATO, Dave Matthews' new label through RCA/BMG,
and is scheduled for worldwide release. Gary and Warren co-wrote the song
and Gary guested on the recording session, contributing some intense
psych-guitar on what is one of the most rocking collaborations he's been
party to in a while.
The double album is a tribute to sadly-departed Gov.
Mule bassist Allen Woody, and features contributions from virtually every
name bass player alive, including John Entwhistle, Bootsy Collins, and on
Gary and Warren's song, Peter Gabriel/King Crimson bassist Tony Levin
(who guested on an album Gary produced in the mid eighties, Peter
Gordon's "Innocent", for CBS Masterworks).
