Congratulations to Andy Hess for being named the new bass player for Gov't Mule. I've seen the Mule with many bass players but never with Andy Hess. Can anyone comment on his playing and how they think that he will fit in with Mule.

You know he played with Britney Spear's "band" a while back don't you....

More recently with the Black Crowes...

Not quite as funky as a George Porter Jr.....not quite as powerful as a Dave Schools....but he should be all right.....

ive been listening to alot of the feb03 shows after hearing andy got the spot and i think they made the best choice. andy can handle the heavy songs as well as the funky stuff like birth of the mule, devil likes it slow and afro blue. now im looking forward to varied setlists unlike with george. dont get me wrong, i think george is great but the setlist was always the exact same with him.

He also plays bass on The Black Crowes live album that came out last year.And I saw him with the Mule back in 2002 and he ripped it up with them. Lookin' forward to seeing what he brings to the band.

And as long as we're on Britney (don't you wish, you old bastiges), I took my little sister to see Cyndi Lauper touring for her 2nd album (I guess it was, after the whole girls just wanna have fun thing), and guess who's next to her on stage playing lead? Mr. Rick Derringer. Can't hate on a dude for grabbing the cash now and then.

Yeah, after I posted that I got to thinking, he probably had one of the best views in the house!

I can't believe he actually played with Britney, err I mean played with her, um...
...Played in her band I guess is what I was trying to say.
I wonder what Woody would think of that one? Poor Captain AL...

Seriously, I guess that was a cool decision although I was secretly hoping with Widespread Panic taking a year off, that Dave Schools would have gotten the gig. There is nobody that comes closer to Woody's style than big bad Dave Schools. The dude can flat out bring it! He has power, speed, finesse and chops. The only problem would be that when Panic ends their hiatus Warren would be right back in the same boat...looking for another bass player, so I guess Andy was for the best.

peace

The 1st time I saw WSP I had ordered tix over the phone and was supposed to pick them up at "will call" window day of the show...well when I got there they didn't have any record of my order. The girl in the booth felt bad for me and ended up giving me front row tix, right in front of Dave Schools. I was totally blown away by his playing, it was incredible.

Schools has blown me away more than once...Having seen Panic since 1991, I used to see them in very small places and many times I was leaning on the stage right in front of Mr Schools...He's absolutely one of the best and I don't say that about just anybody.

He'd probably say something as dirty and funny as Randy and Eddie P's posts combined.

Marc did indeed work with J-Lo, I think someone saw him playing behind her on a Good Morning America appearance or something like that.

I always hoped I'd be surprised, but I had a feeling Andy Hess might get the nod when they started bringing out older songs like Game Face, Larger than Life, and Devil Likes it Slow when they were touring with him.

Rick has a smooth jazz album out now. i think it is SJ versions of
songs he played on rock tracks. Jazzy Koo is one track.

Just was on Letterman promoting it. (sat in with the band)

Back to mule:

I like Dave Schools also but It seemed like with mule he was
not sure how much Woody to put in and how much Dave. In the
end that was less interesting than his playing with WP.

Andy seemed like the best fit of the guys I saw since Woody died.

Oteil was good also but I don't think Gregg would smile on Warren stealing another guy
from ABB for Mule. And Mr. Porter laid down some funky mule.

I guess John Scofield is looking for a new bassist.

Peace
John

The Stone Roses Fools Gold (1989) Bass

What is the source for this? I am a Stone Roses fan, and I always thought that was their regular bass player on that track. If that is Andy, then he deserves props, because that is one of the best bass lines ever, by anybody.

I am still disappointed that George Porter didn't get it, but I am looking forward to NAPS. This is the project George and Brian Stoltz of the Funky Meters are doing with Matt Abts and Johnny Neel. Should be some good stuff!

I doubt Gregg would care, they're not leaving the band. But Oteil has his own side band - two, actually - and I'm sure he's not giving that up. The music he does is very different from the Mule and the ABB.

I would have loved to see GM bring in Audley Freed as a permanent member as well. He and Warren mesh quite well on stage and in the Studio. Look for Mule to start playing sheds in the near future.
