Yes Warren, you are right. The very early 80's was with David Allen Coe. 80-84 and it was David that introduced Warren to Dickey and Gregg... When they were doing the Pattern Disruptive album and touring is what I remember the most from my beginnings of Warren!

It wasn't long before Haynes was playing in a band called Ricochet that developed a good regional following. One day, Haynes got a call from David Allan Coe, and it was a major break for the 20-year-old Haynes. He played with Coe from 1980 to 1984 (traveling all over the States and Europe) and played on nine of Coe's albums. Haynes also met Dickey Betts and Gregg Allman through Coe, and when Coe's band opened for The Allman Brothers at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Betts sat in. Four years later, Haynes moved to Nashville to do session work, but the Allman connection was still there. Betts was doing some demos in Nashville and called someone to put together a group of background singers. As fate would have it, Haynes was one of them. Later, he called Haynes and invited him down to work on some songs. Those songs turned into Betts' solo album, Pattern Disruptive.

At the same time, Allman decided to record "Just Before the Bullets Fly," which Haynes co-wrote, as the title track to his 1988 album. It's no wonder that when The Allman Brothers reformed for their Reunion Tour in 1989, Haynes got a call to join. That tour turned into two studio albums and two Grammy nominations for Best Instrumental Rock Performance (in 1990 for "True Gravity" and 1991 for "Kind of Bird," both of which were co-written by Haynes and Betts) and then a live album in 1992 An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band. Haynes' songwriting, singing and playing helped make Seven Turns, Shades of Two Worlds and An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band, the Brothers' most critically acclaimed albums in years. Many critics give Haynes credit for putting the fire back in The Allman Brothers Band.

In addition to those Grammy nominations the Allman Brothers won a Grammy for Jessica from the 2nd Set cd sometime in the mid 90's.
And i "think" they got a nomination for Instrumental Illness from HTN.

Does anyone know which 9 albums of Coe's Warren plays on? I've been searching the forum but I think I'd have better luck finding life on Mars. Any help? With the coe albums that is.
