Happy 2008 everyone.


Quite frankly, I think a show that lasted five hours that I paid $75 dollars for was more than worth it. I don't know what you expect but it seems slightly unreasonable.

The show was great. The crowd was great. Just a few weirdos here and there. Weirdos were a perfect fit actually. I mean it was a throw back to 67.

Overall, I think the set list did the era some justice. I was very impressed by the Hendrix choices and the Vanilla Fudge and Cream were both tasty treats. Then there was the soul/r&b numbers and the Beatles ... Lucy in the Sky . . . Let's not talk about drugs.

Jessica , I believe you are in a very small minority that didn't enjoy that show!I don't what your expectations going in were? How and where you spend your entainment dollars is up to you. If last nights show didn't make it for you , maybe you should look elsewhere "to support the machine".

For the rest of us the show was awesome & we'll defintely are looking forward to more in the new year & beyond!

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Sorry, but the show was awesome and a bargain to boot. Your posts are always pissy but blame yourself for thinking that because Warren Haynes or any other rock star who smiles at you from the stage means that he's in love with you. Believe me my girlfriend is almost as bad as you are as a result of one show two years ago where Warren Haynes spent the entire second set flirting with her and another girl in the front. So get a grip and enjoy the music because that is what it is all about and have a grate 2008, JessicaA.

I know what you mean. Warren smiled at my daughter Mule Girl (9) at Mt. Jam and now she LOVES him. She also loves G. Love who smiled at her as well.

I surely hope you are freakin' kidding me. If you are that ungrateful you should just stay home. That was 4 1/2 hours of music. Where else are you gonna get a show that long for that price. I think you need a brain transplant if you feel that way.


Showered by litter. What kind of A-Hole are you. Maybe you drank a bit too much or something you spoiled little brat. Go pay $300.00 to see the Stones for two hours or $150.00 to see the Who or the Eagles.

I don't know what you were drinking or smoking, but you should just stay home next time and let some real Mule fan have your seat.

As for me I would like to thank Warren, Matt, Andy, Danny and everyone involved for bringing us so much joy. And bringing it to us for a more than reasonable price.

Yeah, I've loved Warren ever since he smiled at me too.

Most of us have joined the Women for Warren My Space site.

A place where it's ok to drool over Warren.

LOL.

Seriously, I love all the guys in the band. Last night's show was enjoyed by the vast majority of fans. Criticism is cool too, but I do want to echo 68's appreciation for the band.

Every bit as good Effie. You will love all three of these shows on Muletracks. Hopefully they will be up in a couple of days. How was your NYE Effie? Hope it was great.

I think it compares but Bonaroo may actually have been better in terms of both the Zep stuff and Hot Tuna. But I will say that the three show run overall is the best I have ever heard of anything period. The Friday and Saturday shows were stupendous. Yesterday's show was sort of like three different shows. First set was your standard outstanding set of classic Mule songs. 2d set was of course magical and unique. Third set was very jazzy, stretched out and even experimental. The addition of "Expressive" and the inclusion of Come Blow Your Horn from Mighty High gave it a real experimental feel and even Mule and Blind Man were much jazzier and trippier than usual. The encore of Sad and Deep as You brought the power level down and seemed almost designed to straighten everybody out for the trip home. When I get the Mule Tracks and really listen, I will get the many many nuances. Anyone who wasn't there, this is definitely a must have, very different.

Doug

Well, you've all quoted me enough to memorialize my words forever. This is the darkest hour of my life. Did I mention I turned into a vampire in the midst of all this? That's the worst, because I am completely alone and hungry and no one I know can tell me anything about it. Life goes on, I guess, but I wish I could turn back the clock. I'm not sure if I did something to receive this curse or if it was fated. Forget Warren Haynes and my own stupid mistakes on that level. I'm just dying to get my story out. I'm tired of doing all this crap on my own.

Well, I tried to delete my post because no one really has a clue where i am coming from. Yeah, I guess people pay lots of money for concerts. i guess I have high expectations. I love the music the band does, and I wasn't smoking or drinking at all until the end when I realized I had to wait around the city for four hours until the next train. So i was disgruntled. And I know that there were other things going on for a fraction of the price that included breakfast and a toast, probably nowhere near as good as music, but done with love and truth. here's the deal.....

Why did they not even acknowledge 2008? It was many minutes after the clock struck 12 when they dumped litter on us, and still afterwards the screen on the stage said 2007. And I know what the dead chicken means. Who else does? i am very grateful that I am free to write this. I am not the only person who thought the show ended on a sad note. it's a sad, sad song. And if the way the show ended is any indication of the coming year, I feel like rebelling, for that is my nature and I'm surprised so many have yet to figure it out. I love how you called me an a-hole whoever you are. I'm glad the musicians will never starve due to loyal fans like you. You have no idea what I know and what I have been through. I have kept quiet for love, for respect, but really, I receive nothing for keeping my mouth shut and it gets to me. How many of you are followed around 24/7? And that fact has been made clear by the army and CIA themselves. How many of you go to concerts and have people doing hand signals all around, trying to suss out your situation? How many of you have woken up to the fact that we are all dead chickens? I know state secrets. I know heaven and hell. No one is looking out for me as I weave and unweave this tangled web. I've been used by this country. I saw Warren Haynes from afar and felt I was in love with him. I can never explain how deep it is. I'm glad women see his beauty and prowess, but I am not interested in a website for it. And trust me, I know the musicians have the power to convince the fans of anything. It IS the machine I speak of. I've got to do something, even though none of you has the capacity to understand. Because I could be dead tomorrow, that's the edge I am on. It's misery. I wish I just continued on the path of truth without everything else getting in the way. This is a cry for help, but I know they'd all prefer me dead anyway. It's a lot to deal with and I just want to be happy.


OMG
Can anyone here translate that for me , my head is spinning.

I knew when they closed the looney bin in my town they had to release some of the patients, but I didn't think they would turn up here.

Jessica,

If you are truly crying for help, I'll feel bad about all that has been posted here. I wish you luck with the things that trouble you. I wish you peace in a new year. Hopefully things will work out better for you in 2008.

PEACE!!!!

Sad and Deep as You as an encore is what put you off, even with this killer set? Wow. You think its a downer to start a year? Have you listened &/or felt this song for what its about? Yeah, I believe he muffed the lyrics a bit, but he muffed it in your favor. The relief of the song, the payoff and why its a beautiful song, for those of us who get it and cheer, is for, "the smile as warm as summer sun, a smile that gets you through," was repeated several times, perhaps even too many times. What an incredible show.

You should not go to the Mule anymore though. Even though it was sincere and full of beauty, people crying, getting goosebumps and kissing and hugging in the hopes of a winter and a year of love inspired by the most incredible music possibly ever in hopes of true peace without war as mentioned by the great Dr King, you still have paranoid negative ideas about this show.... there are times when the Mule will try to blow your ass away into an oblivion, this was not that night. Furthermore, that flexibility is what makes them more than a boring hippie band, it makes them the most well-rounded and truly sincere band there is and what makes the payoff that much more crucial and impressive. But like we used to say on Dead lot, if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand. Honestly, you should abstain from anymore Mule shows, seek out orchestral music, that may be more your speed.

Plus, you bitch about the cost??!! Were you not the one to snatch the tickets from someone generous and kind enough to trade a Tshirt from the show for the tickets???? That cost you all of $20-30 due to someone's more than generous offer and you still have the audacity to gripe. The nerve of some will never ceas to amaze. Realize that you are the problem.

Since lonomon decided to insult me, I will erase this one, too. Show's over folks. pearls before swine is never a good idea. I wish God would send me a good idea before I do something truly regrettable. Please, please, please forgive me. It's not easy being in this world all alone.

You sound like the little girl from Beetlejuice.
Maybe you need a friend. Or a good psychiatrist ...

I'd say I definitely need a friend. If the psychiatrist is a vampire, maybe she could help. I am the biggest idiot for thinking anyone on this forum could have a clue of where I am coming from and i apologize for that mistake and will try to keep my fretting hands away from this website. i do wish you all the best.
