So the other night, John Molo and I got a chance to sit in with the Allman Brothers on the tune “Southbound”. To sit in with those guys is intimidating, to say the least. There I was, trading guitar licks with Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes and hanging on for dear life. It was frightening…and about the most fun I’ve had with my pants on. I have to say that watching Derek play slide (particularly from that close), is nothing short of a religious experience. It’s unreal. The guy is fucking amazing. Warren is no slouch. He’s got the serious triple threat going: guitar playing, writing songs and singing. Not to mention he’s about the nicest guy on the planet. A true gentleman.
We just got done playing a show with the Black Crowes. Chris Robinson came up to sing and play “Sugaree” with us. He’s got some pipes, boy…. It was a great jam and he positively nailed the tune. He too, was very kind and very much a gentleman.
So that’s the update so far. A couple more Allman Brothers shows and then my band heads out for a few California dates. After that, PLF is off to New York City for a 14 – show run at the Nokia Theater!!!
