That's a pretty cool watch. Always enjoy watching and listening to Warren Haynes playing Cortez, especially with the Dave Matthews Band, with the Central Park performance a particular standout (pretty sure I first saw it here on TW).

I came across a good video of Bryan Ferry and his band playing Like a Hurricane a couple of weeks ago on Youtube. It's from a few years ago - Nuits de Fourviere Live in Lyon. I knew Roxy Music used to play Hurricane live back in the eighties, but was surprised to see him still performing it with his current band. Not sure if it would be to everyone's taste but I quite enjoyed it and they give it their all.

Warren Haynes is a monster guitarist with tons of talent. I saw him in The Allman Brothers Band several times, one of the loudest shows I have ever attended.

My wife and I caught him playing Cortez w/ the Dave Matthews Band at the Washington’s Gorge Ampitheater on 9/3/2011. We were up close and it was spectacular!

Here is a video link:

That's a good performance and watch too - thanks Alan. Must have been great to see live!

Whilst watching I saw a link for a performance of Down By The River, also by Warren and DMB, at Camden. It features a trumpet and some other horns too - a bit different but very good too.

I have only ever seen videos of live Warren Haynes performances and haven't listened to his recorded output. All the videos I have seen have been excellent. He is a real master of his instrument, and I quite like his vocals too.

I knew he performed with the Allmans but did he record with them too? I have Eat a Peach and Brothers and Sisters in my album collection but nothing more recent. I will have to make some time to explore their later catalogue.

@ Ron : Yes, the excellent “Where It All Begins” features Warren Haynes, as does 2 live albums : An Evening With The Allman Brothers, Set 1 / Set 2 (2 different live albums). WH added a lot of Horsepower to late career Allman Brothers band.

Yes, seeing Cortez at the Gorge was insanely excellent, a spectacular performance. Tim Reynolds is a fantastic guitarist as well.
It seems to have better sound quality than the recent video of Dino Jr.

I just noticed the Allmans have a bunch of early live albums released also, Fillmore, etc. It would be nice to have more Duane Allman slide playing to enjoy. Maybe next Christmas. Santa said he had to draw the line somewhere for 2023.

@ Alan
Thanks for the recommendations - I will check these out.

Back in the 70s the 'At Fillimore East' live album was well regarded by many of my friends. I didn't have the funds to add it to my collection but enjoyed listening to their copies. I note there seem to a lot of other live albums from that period available now too.
