Word is coming out all over Facebook that Brian Farmer has passed away. No official word from the Mule camp, but I have heard from a couple reliable sources it is true. I am hoping it's a bad joke.

I saw a Facebook post where it sounded like Kirk was saying that, but I was/am hoping I misinterpreted what he wrote. Here's hoping it isn't true. If it is, my condolences to the ABB and Mule families and to his own family and friends.

WE HAVE NO OFFICIAL WORD FROM Gov't Mule YET - Brian Farmer, Warren Haynes' guitar tech and friend to all of us, has passed away. We will share more information as we receive it.

If this turns out to be true, the irony is it happened on the anniversary of Woody's passing, which was 14 years ago today.

Very sad.

I just saw him Saturday night at the Mule show in Chattanooga. We were laughing because people were yelling his name while he was setting things up. Amazing the number of people in the audience who know who a guitar tech is, that says a lot about the man.

I hate to hear this. Just awful news.

Incredibly sad news for the entire famABBly. Condolences to Brian's family and circle of friends.

I have had several very brief chats with Brian through the years. He was always kind enough to stop and chat and share information with a mere, common fan.

His presence will be missed, his absence felt.

Sad, sad day.

Devastated, don't know what to say really. A genuinely all round nice guy who was a font of knowledge about everything to do with putting a band on the road. R.I.P Brian. Thanks for the memories.

RIP to the man behind Warren Haynes' guitars. I hope they bury him with his I'm Not Him t-shirt. No one else could wear that like Farmer.

This is sad, sad news.

RIP Brian.

He was also nice to me. Always took a moment to answer a question. Always returned a hello.

RIP.

A message from Warren on his website:

"He was a close friend, a devoted worker, and a lover of life. We traveled around the world together and shared many experiences-mostly while laughing. He will be missed by a huge circle of friends and family." - Warren Haynes

I saw it first on Facebook this morning, then came immediately here because I knew there would be a thread. Warren must be in shock. I'm sure he'll issue a statement before long. Can't remember any of my many Mule shows where I didn't see Brian getting Warren's gear ready for him before he came out. Thoughts are with Brian Farmer's family..............
