  • Warren Haynes Takes in Knicks’ Win

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    photoI met Warren Haynes Friday night at the Clippers-Knicks game — won by the Knicks, 95-91 — and he was kind enough to pose for this photo, taken by my man Scott Mandel of sportsreporters.com.

    For those who don’t know, Warren is a guitarist for The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead and his own band, Gov’t Mule. Rolling Stone ranked him No. 23 on the list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time.

    I’ve probably seen 30-40 Allmans shows in my life, many at the Beacon Theater during the annual March run.

    Warren said The Brothers would be back in NYC in March 2010, but not at the Beacon because the theater is booked. Huh? Booked after all these years of the Allmans?

    Anyway, they will appear for their ‘Peakin’ at the Beacon’ run at the United Palace Theatre on 175th St. That is also a great venue, which has recently hosted Bob Dylan and Neil Young, among others.

    Can’t wait…In the meantime, here’s Warren and Dave Matthews doing Neil’s ‘Cortez the Killer,’ one of the greatest anthems of all time…
