Three years ago today Woody left us on this earth to play thundering bass in the blue sky above. I miss him bunches, but I am very glad for all the music he left behind for us all to listen to and share with eachother.
I love the pic I posted here, as it reminds me of one of the silly moments there were so many of.
Love and miss you Woody!

RIP Woody - a great bassist and all-around nice person. One of my best musical memories is meeting the guys after a show at this little sh!thole club in Youngstown, Oh. (Nyabinghi Hall) 7-99. Woody's down to earth demeanor and sense of humor made a lasting impression on me. No offense to any subsequent incarnations of the band, but the original trio was a force of nature and the chemistry between Woody and Warren was a joy to behold.

Hard to comprehend how much has happened in our world (musically, or in a broader sense) in the last three years. I guess I'm exactly where I was three years ago when I read the news on the old site.

I only saw Allen with the Brothers once, although I do remember his presence on the stage. More clearly, I remember some of the great Mule shows I've heard him on, where he's getting a super-dirty and ultrapowerful sound from his bass, pulling everything along like a freight train.

waking it up...

was listening to Live @ The Roseland...say what you want, but that's one band that'll never be the same...the loss of allen woody was actually so reminiscent of ABB losing Berry....a tragedy beyond description by words alone...

I remember seeing Captain Al at my first mule show in September of 1999, and that's something I'll never forget.
R.I.P. Allen Woody, thanks for the wonderful music.

First Mule show was Nov.99. They played a real small club and Capt.Al moved my internal organs around for me.Saw 'em Sunday night and they still got it,missed Woody though and thought of him and the biggest bass sound when they did Thorazine Shuffle.I remember seeing the Brothers in 1990 - the Seven Turns tour,first exposure to Woody and recall thinking even if he can't play,he looks like he should the bass player for the Allman Brothers Band.Him and Warren and Neely were all great and I always say thanks for helping resurrect the band.

My first exposure to Woody was through the ABB. But here lately, I am collecting and listening to the older Mule stuff, catching up if you will, and he was such a large part of the Mule sound. I can see why they used so many wonderful players to do The Deep End sessions. It makes me miss him all the more.

Rock on Woody! God bless you brother!

I still get buzzy inside when I recapture the image and feel of the three men of Gov't Mule doing that thang. Although we saw them many times, a gig at the New Daisy on Beale St. in Memphis, and another night at a little dive on Marshall street were the kind of memory that is branded in your being. It is the kind of thing one witnesses and knows that there is a spiritual mystery when music is done right. I will not forget it. Allen, I'll be seeing you again, my friend. Thank you for giving us your gift.
