One week ago today Warren Haynes sat in with the Dave Matthews Band at
the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia, continuing a musical relationship that dates back
20 years. Haynes emerged towards the end of DMB's long headlining set to guest on a cover
"All Along The Watchtower."
Warren plenty of room to turn out a fierce slide solo, which garnered a big smile from DMB
drummer Carter Beauford. At one point both the guitarist and the drummer play at each
and we get to see two masters at work. Eventually Haynes drops the slide and tears into a
frenetic run of notes that brings the solo to a climax, but not before he engages Tim
Reynolds in a call-and-response duel. When Warren is finished ripping it up, he heads to
mic to finish off the song with Dave joining in for good measure.
YouTube's ChesterCopperPot5 took multiple fan-shot clips of the guest spot and added taper audio to create the best video of the sit-in currently available. Check it out:
