This was a long time coming. Thanks to Warren for the hospitality, and to all who are a part of Team Haynes in NYC. At nearly 3,500 words, the interview is comprehensive and fun and even includes an ABB forum member or two.

Great interview Derek. Liked the part about everybody at the Jam watching Dr Ralph. When did Warren play with Bela Fleck? I'd like to find some of that.

Fantastic Derek!!!! I love this...

quote:
Looking back on his time in the Dickey Betts Band in the late 1980’s, Haynes has good things to say about that experience.

“That was a great band,” says Haynes. “Me and Dickey, and Johnny Neel and Marty Pervette and Matt Abts were a hell of a band and we made some great music. That is a really good record, but sonically it is a little dated. Records were being made with a lot more reverb and stuff like that at that point. That was in 1988. A few years later the production started going back toward drier, more organic sounding records. So, I’d love to hear that record remixed. There was a lot of good music being made during that time period. That’s for sure.”

“I learned so much from that opportunity,” continues Haynes. “We wrote a lot of good music together, played a lot of good music together. It was one of those opportunities that was impossible for me to turn down. Even though, when I got the offer from Dickey to join his band it was coinciding with the first opportunity that I had to sign a record deal and make a record of my own, which I put on the back burner to join Dickey's band. With no regrets, because it was a great opportunity.”

I'm glad he had no regrets cause that was one HOT number they had going!!! I can't tell you how many times I saw them but it was a lot!!! They smoked and kicked butt!!!!

quote:
“My oldest brother had an acoustic guitar that I started picking up when I was 11 and I started playing it more than he did. I was playing it to the extent that I asked my Dad for an electric guitar for my 12th birthday. My Dad had a beautiful voice, or has a beautiful voice. He was very shy and didn’t sing a lot in public, but he could have chosen that path because he was always a great singer. It was a musical family in the way that everybody loved music, and there was always music being played in the house whether it was on a record or people playing guitar or whatever.

NICE!!! I never knew his dad was such a great singer!

You did a great job Derek!

I know Bela is on the Deepest End DVD from 2003 Jazz Fest, playing on "Lay of the Sunflower" and "Patchwork Quilt" if I recall correctly.

I believe Bela Fleck played 'Liz Reed" at the Beacon a few years ago.

Great write up bro. I'm glad to have been part of the Madison show. It was a different Mule that night, but one of the best shows I've seen them play in over 25 shows. Warren is not only one of the best guitarists ever...he has a huge heart with a passion about everything he's part of.

I thought it was really cool to hear him talk about his family. You don't really hear that much!

He also sat in on an acoustic "Come on in My Kitchen" (which by the way appears on Top Droog's favorites, volume 5) the same night, 3/15/03.

Great interview/article, by the way.

Buffalo Smith posts on here every once in a while. Met him a couple times at a Dickey show in Charlotte and also he had a lot to do with the Jam for George in Spartanburg.
