Love is the Temple. Love's the higher law.

Possibly grunge, but there is no way they would do Rush. I'm a big old school Rush fan, but Warren would have to have someone(presumably Steff) squeezing his b@lls on stage during the set. Warren is amazingly talented, but singing Geddy Lee's parts would be impossible.

Certainly hope its not a grunge tribute.


mulehead13 - 12/9/2008 at 02:00 PM

Maybe they will perform the "Temple of the Dog" album in its entirety.

They already do Hunger strike > dear mr fantasy > hunger strike.

I love that album anyway. Eddie Vedder and especially Chris Cornell backed by what is now Pearl Jam. Matt Cameron was the drummer for Soundgarden at the time this was recorded.


bobbyr - 12/9/2008 at 02:19 PM

Ticketmaster lists 2 ticket prices for the Angel Orensanz show, $50 & 60. I thought this was GA. It says there's a balcony. What do you all have?
I'm going to try for tickets tomorrow!


Angelemerald - 12/9/2008 at 03:30 PM

I have the floor at 60. The balcony is 50. Good luck. Hope to see you there.


moemoe6434 - 12/9/2008 at 04:25 PM

I wish I was going.... the thought of Grunge Mule is awesome to me. I don't have plans, I just can't afford it this year.

I have the floor too. It's the floor that's GA and I think the Balcony is seated.


Angelemerald - 12/10/2008 at 02:16 AM

I've never even heard a song by Kurt Cobain.


downsouth - 12/10/2008 at 10:14 PM

If you're not familiar w/ Nirvana, a "light" intro to them would be the MTV Unplugged show of theirs. It freakin rawks. And if you're ready for the hi-test version, check out their first record, Bleach

ps- warren's mommy rode on dave grohl's bus out of nyc after the 9/11 attacks.


tbomike - 12/10/2008 at 11:40 PM

Isn't Mule playing at a temple? Highly unlikely on a Temple of The Dog performance. I don't even think Temple of the Dog ever actually performed a concert, it was tribute to Andrew Wood.

But the album they released is a great rock n roll album by any standard. Throw away the "grunge" stereotype. Warren is a fan of that era. He not only covers "hunger strike" but "indifference" by Pearl jam and "Creep" and "lucky" by Radiohead.

This is not to say they are going to do this, but it shows you the diversity of Warren's setlist. He just appreciates great music.


tbomike - 12/11/2008 at 12:32 AM

Oh I am a big fan of the Temple of the Dog record and an even bigger fan of Pearl Jam and am well aware of Warren's versatility in covers and agree with all you say except I do not believe that the "Temple" is a reference in this case to that record.

I see what you are saying, but there is a theme each year for the New years show and he does refer to the actual new years run.... You could be very right though, but the play on words is uncanny.

"These shows will be part of the "Temple of The Mule" New Years Eve run in New York City."

temple of the dog did a few shows together
like less than 7 but for awhile it wasnt uncommon for vedder or cornell
to get together with each others bands and do the covers live

i doubt mule would do an acoustic cover of the whole album but we can dream

id love to hear abb do a cover of reachdown

The first time I heard Warren do Indifference, I was stunned.

"ps- warren's mommy rode on dave grohl's bus out of nyc after the 9/11 attacks."

I remember hearing that story.


dougrhon - 12/13/2008 at 12:16 AM

Any idea when we can expect tickets with the show 2 weeks from tomorrow?


susea - 12/13/2008 at 01:33 PM

Doug, in the past I have received tickets thru Music Today even 10 days before the show. I have a feeling we'll hear something on Monday but you can always drop them a line too.


npjonathan - 12/13/2008 at 02:54 PM

The Mule has been doing really cool stuff the last few years for New Years Eve. Two years ago it was a Reggae set. Last year it was a tribute to 1967. It'll be interesting to see what they do this year. Can't wait for the release because I won't be making it this year.


moemoe6434 - 12/30/2008 at 07:27 PM

So it looks more and more like it is a grunge set having covered Nirvana two nights in a row now.... plus a song that Nirvana covered and made famous.


dougrhon - 12/30/2008 at 07:48 PM

That is definitely the theme. Not only have they covered three Nirvana songs already but the official teeshirt logo has a picture of the Seattle Space needle, a complete tipoff. BTW, I would say this is shaping up to be an historic MYE run but I say it every year so it is redundant.

I am not going this year...... I grew up on "grunge" and still listen to it daily, if only the $ was lined up. My wife and I have been there each year since we have began dating.

Can't wait to hear the bootlegs, have fun and be safe for those going!

Temple of the Mule. I though they did I Believe. I thought it was a grunge song. I lack such knowledge about such tunes. Live and learn. I always say. Warren and Mule just rock.

Can't wait to go on tour in 09. : - )

Great video. That was one of the highlights of the show. People who stereotype Derek as a jazzy player and Warren as a rocker should watch this.


plqmule - 12/31/2008 at 07:01 PM

I looked up the link between Warren and Jeff Young. It's Jorgen. Jorgen played on Jeffs last Cd. Red Clay did rock!

Here is the link to his My Space page:

stunning guitar playing on this by Warren--gotta love his tone

hope you ball are enjoying the shows & that NYE is great--be safe,have fun!


dougrhon - 1/1/2009 at 12:21 AM

Nobody has tone like Warren. His playing is sweet.


oasisfan35 - 1/1/2009 at 01:15 AM

The two shows I caught (27 & 30) were spectacular. 6 shows this year, 15 in all and each show just seems fresher and fresher... I wish I were there tonight, as a grunge theme would be essentially penultimate but as it goes I'll be watching the site and eagerly anticipating an audience pull shortly before a MuleTracks release.


KPRESTN712 - 1/1/2009 at 02:24 AM

Angelemerald, I believe the story was that Warren helped get Dave Grohl's mother out of New York after 911. David Grohl returned the favor but sitting in with the Mule sometime after that.

Holy Mother of God!!!!!!!!! I got home an hour ago, tried to go to sleep, but the Mule show I just witnessed has me so amped that I can't freakin' sleep. Just an amazing night of music!!!

Let me first say that after my first two encounters, I am totally impressed with Jorgen Carlson. He definetly has jelled very quickly with the band and is not afraid to step up and add his own spice. The bass was definetly louder in the mix than with Andy and I like it a lot.

Now to the show. They opened with a very strong 'Wandering Child' followed by one of the stronger 'Slackjaw Jesebels' I have seen to date. Also a killer 'Thelonius Beck' and a very strong 'About To Rage'. A great opening set. I can't wait for Mule to post the setlist. Because of my brain overload I'm blanking on the rest of the first set, but it was smoking.

Next came the NYE grunge set and is was nothing short of incredible IMHO! They played music from every band I expected them to and they killed it on every one. The first song was an EPIC take on Alice In Chains' 'Here Comes The Rooster'. Of the four bands that they drew from, Alice In Chains is my least favorite but they totally killed it on this one. The place was going nuts by the time that song ended. An awesome version of Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun'. From Pearl Jam they did 'Indifference' and a very cool 'Black'. They almost tore the roof off the joint when they did Nirvana's 'Lithium'. My neck was starting to hurt at this point from all of the headbanging. They also did two other Nirvana songs that they played on Saturday, 'All Apologies' which Warren messed up the verses on and 'Where Did You Sleep Last Night'. I'm probably missing something but I will tell you, this show was crazy good. I would reccomend it to everyone on Muletracks.

I forgot to mention that they actually had the guitar player from Chris Cornell's band sit in for the grunge set. Warren couldn't have gotten anyone better for the job than someone who actually tours some of the music they were playing.

Just when I thought things would slow down, they opened the third set with something I had been really wanting to see, a three peice old school 'War Pigs' and it was everything I was hoping for. A very strong 'Bad Little Doggie' which I never get sick of and maybe the best 'Brand New Angel' I have witnessed so far. They did a very cool jazz number that sounded in parts like something from DTB. Then at the end Kevin Kinny came out and they did his song 'Im Going Straight To Hell' which I saw him do with Mule at the Irving Plaza show a two or so years ago. Then they finished with an amazing 'Rocking In The Free World' and an outstanding 'Can't You See'.

This show will stay with me for quite some time. I already wish I had another Mule show in my sights, but this will have to do for now. Can't wait to see the full setlist tomorrow. Now that I have ranted for thirty minutes, maybe I can fall asleep now.

Good night or should I say good morning to all and have a Happy Mule Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dougrhon - 1/1/2009 at 04:47 PM

This sounds absolutely unbelievable. Besides the amazing middle set I have ALWAYS wanted to hear War Pigs and Can't You See. Maybe some day. What an historical run. I think that Jorgen is going to turn out to be a tremendous addition. I am looking forward to the future with the Mule. I can't believe no more Mule for me until May.

Too bad they couldn't get Jerry Cantrell to sit in again. That would have just been over the top. I can't wait to hear it. As much as I wish I were there, I can't say there's anywhere I would have rather been than a block away for My Morning Jacket
