Happy Birthday Warren Haynes: Covering Metallica With The Dead

Hardworking guitarist Warren Haynes turns 56 years old today. Known best for his work with The Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, Phil Lesh & Friends and his solo efforts – including his recently formed Ashes & Dust Band featuring drummer Jeff Sipe and ChessBoxer – Warren has long been a well-respected force on the jam rock scene. For his 56th today, here’s a look back at another project Haynes has been part of, from a 2004 Summer Tour performance by The Dead.

Featuring Haynes alongside Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart as well as Jimmy Herring and Jeff Chimenti, the ensemble of talented veterans appeared together at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York on August 13, 2004.
