Bassist Jorgen Carlsson is joining the band in a permanent role. Carlsson replaces Andy Hess, who played with the band since bassist Allen Woody died in 2000.
“We were faced with the daunting task of replacing a one-of-a-kind musician, which I’m sure was intimidating for Andy, who did a wonderful job and brought his own personality into the music,” Gov’t Mule guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes said in a statement. “Jorgen’s style is somewhere between Woody’s and Andy’s. He brings some of Woody’s aggressive spirit back although he is very much his own man.”
Gov’t Mule’s new 2-DVD set, A Tail Of Two Cities, is now out.
