For starting it all. For coming up with the idea of starting Gov't Mule. Without you Gov't Mule would have never existed. You left us way too soon but your legacy lives on in the music you gave us and the band you left behind that was your brainchild. I will always be greatful to you for planting the seeds that sprouted Gov't Mule. You will never be forgotten!

Great thread Pete!!!

For me it all started since the Birth of the Mule! Woody was a good guy and our group in and around the Boston area just adored him!! Lots of very fond memories from those early years.

















Sweet Jill with Woody and our friend Kenny behind her. Jill and her husband used to run the t shirt booth in and around the Boston area for the Mule in the very early days!

Indeed, Steve. There's no escaping it.

I was very fortunate to have seen Mule with Woody in 2000, for either 3 or 4 times. I think 4. One show was in Elmira, NY, where there were maybe 20 people there! They rocked out...of course...even to the two dozen of us.

I can still see Woody's crumpled up face while he played. His head bobbin' just a little. Like it was yesterday, really. "Thank ya, folks"...

Sure do miss that guy.

Great pictures Sue! I wish I had seen Woody more with the Mule than I did, but at least I got to see him many times with the ABB. The Woody intro to 'Whipping Post' used to rattle your rib cage. He may just be the most unknown and underrated bass players ever.

Great pictures. Reading this thread and viewing these images reminds me of the first time I saw Mule in Utica, NY just after Mule was released in late 1995. There's a point in the show where Woody starts bitching at the roadie for giving him a pink colored pick. The venue was called "Captain Tripps Rainforest Preserve with a maximum capacity of maybe 100 people. It was a very intimate setting which made Woody's rant easy to hear and very comical. He clearly wasn't really pissed but was more busting the roadies chops. I have a sound board copy of the show and it's always a gas to hear Woody.

Incidentally, this show was held the night before they appeared on Conan O'Brien's show on NBC for the first time. It's also memorable for me because Warren was hanging around the front entrance about 45 minutes before the show began. My gang and I were about five feet from him and were way too "burnt" to speak to him. We were afraid we'd start rambling so we just sort of whispered to each other "Wow, that's Warren"......Ah the memories. Brings me back to a part of my life which is now gone (early twenties, just out of college, no worries). I miss Woody. RIP, good brother.

Hard to believe he's been gone so long. I'll never forget my first Mule show in 96. I've never been the same. Got the chance to chat with Woody a couple of times and will never forget how gracious and outgoing he was. I remember exactly where I was when I heard he died.
RIP Douglas Allen Woody.

Dickey tells a great story about when Allen showed up to audition for the ABB

RIP Br'er

RIP Woody.I remember the first time I saw him walk on stage with the ABB and thinking well , at least he looks like an Allman Brother and then hearing him prove that he was the real deal. Another memory of him was seeing them in a tiny club at concert hall volume - Woody was actually moving people with the air coming out of his rig.
