Warren Haynes Went For Late Night Feel On Ashes & Dust


(The Blues) Warren Haynes has revealed he made a point of working late into the night on solo album Ashes & Dust to ensure it had an authentic feel. The Gov't Mule mainman's record - a collaboration with Railroad Earth - was released last year, following his split with the Allman Brothers Band.

Haynes tells MusicRadar: "There were certain songs on Ashes & Dust that I wanted to record around midnight. I didn't want us to be too cerebral in our approach. I wanted it to be a stream of consciousness, to get that late-night feeling when you have less of a filter about the way you play."

He continues: "We'd do three takes - I like to do things in threes. Then we wouldn't even listen back. We'd come back the next day and see what had happened."

Some of Haynes' greatest influences have inspired him with their ability to achieve feel over thought. "I loved Jeff Beck, Peter Green, Billy Gibbons and Steve Howe - who's one of the most unique players I've ever heard," he says. Read more here.
