Warren Haynes says that playing guitar with Derek Trucks comes naturally, “like drinkin’ water”

I love talking to Warren Haynes. Apart from being one of my fave guitarists, he’s just such a cool, cool guy.

I did my sixth interview with Haynes three months back, when Gov’t Mule was playing a show at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre.

At one point in the interview I had to bring up his former bandmate in the Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks, ’cause Trucks is one of my faves too. So I asked Warren if he ever yearned to get the younger picker’s slide guitar into his music again.

Have a listen: (and please ignore the part where I get their “respective” bands ass-backwards.)
