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).
