Being kinda new to this site and the forum's, I was wondering who in the band actually creates the set list for the show?
Is it just Greg or is it a family affair?

Warren is the main creator of the setlists. But from what I heard, Gregg has the final say.

Chad's been standing behind the curtain, cowbell in one hand and stick in the other, for thirty-five years, waiting for his cue . . .

(tonight's the night . . . I know it is . . . tonight's the night they do the Nazareth covers . . . tonight's the night . . . I know it is . . .)

I put my pants on just like the rest of you - one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records.

"I gotta have more cowbell, baby!" ZANG! EXCELLENT HAHAHA, one of the funniest skits ever

At the Daytona ('02?) show I noticed that they have the list posted for the soundboard operator. If you want to ruin the excitement, like I inadvertantly did, go take a peak. Surprisingly though, the band didn't follow the list.

The Whipping Post encore that night was the best I've ever heard. Warren brought it down and played it back up slowly like the classic version on Fillmore East. I had never heard the modern iteration of the band play it that way before or since.

Is there anyone that can estimate how often they've treated the song like this lately?

I can't estimate, but they've done it before. Check out One Way Out for a really terrific, 'Fillmore' Whipping Post. I think they started doing this at the Beacon last year.

Hophead and I were there for that WP! We talked to Warren in the dressing room at intermission and after the show - and we were like WOW - that was the best WP we've heard Warren play!

After the show we were bystanders when Warren asked Kirk to bring that tape to him 'cause he wanted to listen to it as well! He played that soft, mournful interlude at a number of performances afterwards - including Atlanta.

Whipping Post has definately come back as a great jam...there was a while where it almost seemed like they were playing WP at double time....but the standard speed one has definately come back with a roar.


As stated...Warren makes a draft, then Gregg vetos certain things based on if he thinks he can sing it that night...there are also certain combos that they watch and repeat during Summer, but the Beacon run always rarely repeats back to back.

Of course there are changes made during the show...Warren said once that him and Gregg can cue Butch to changes in his headphones.

The One Way Out version is from March 25th. They did do it at least one other time.

Funny that you say that - Butch commented that when he listened to the Whipping Post from the American University archive show, he realized they were playing it too slow. So they've sinced picked up the speed and intensity. But they are playing longer versions now.

There is a better version of Whipping Post from that summer, and it is from the Instant Live CD's, I think Charlotte or maybe Raleigh. Anyhow it's the one where Branford Marsalis guests on saxaphone and totally transforms the song, giving it that same gritty, almost demonic feel that Duane did with his elephantine solo on the Fillmore East version. Warren also does his soulful interlude, and finishes sounding like Duane, wow. The Charlotte recording was at the end of the summer, so the band had been playing together for several months after the Beacon recordings. Personally I think the ABB should have a sax ax as a regular band member!

Although thats true...the jams did slow down for a while...the intro and verses were just rocketed through for a while, mainly the end of the Dickey/Warren run....I have a show from 96, where the intro cant be more than ten seconds before Gregg starts singin'

They also did the jammed-out version of WP on 3/20/03 I believe. I'm a big fan of the 3/19/04 version. They don't jam the middle after Warren's solo, but they do jam on Will the Circle Be Unbroken at the beginning of Warren's solo. I was there and it was very powerful.

My favorite versions of Whipping Post are from 2 shows I was at 3/20/03 and 3/19/04. Never shorter than 12 minutes. If listen carefully, Warren breaks a string on 3/19/04 WP during will the circle be unbroken. Butch also loses a drum stick for a few seconds during Stand Back at 3/19/04 and picks up right where he left off.
