Bob's guest this week is legendary guitarist Warren Haynes of The Allman Brothers, The Dead, and Gov't Mule. When he became part of the Allmans, Warren had the surreal experience of getting to join his favorite band, and we've been fans of his music ever since.
They discuss the Allman Brothers shows Warren played at Madison Square Garden just days before the Covid shutdown and what he's working on with touring life on hold. Warren also the roots of Christmas Jam, the annual benefit concert he hosts in his native Asheville which has raised millions of dollars for Habitat for Humanity.
Finally Bob and Warren turn to the upcoming election, Warren's work with Headcount, and why he believes voting should be mandatory.
