That time Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes told me who his biggest influences were on slide

By Steve Newton

Oh man, I freakin’ love the sound of slide guitar. And I especially love it when it’s being created by somebody like Warren Haynes.

In case you didn’t know, Haynes is the player who took over the slide duties when the Allman Brothers reunited back in 1989.

I did my first interview with Haynes back in 1994, when the Allmans were touring behind their Back Where it All Begins album, and at one point in the conversation I asked him who his biggest influences were on slide. I wasn’t the least bit surprised when he mentioned Duane Allman, but he went on to add a few more bottleneck greats to the list.

Have a listen:
