Gov’t Mule: “Thorazine Shuffle” Live with Allen Woody

A couple weeks ago we celebrated the birthday of the late great Allen Woody. On that day, we posted a question on our Facebook page, asking readers which of his bass lines they liked the best.

You all roared back with one of the baddest rock bass riffs ever: “Thorazine Shuffle”.

Here’s the original Gov’t Mule lineup featuring Woody on bass, Warren Haynes on guitar and Matt Abts on drums during a live performance from 1999.

While the video quality could be better, it does capture the band’s ferocity and has lots of close ups of the bassist and his black EB3.
