In other Gov’t Mule news, in early June the band announced bassist Jorgen Carlsson was leaving and would be replaced by bassist Kevin Scott. In a recent interview with Rock & Blues Muse, frontman Warren Haynes shared his first comments on Jorgen’s departure.
“Jorgen did an amazing job. His role in Gov’t Mule got better and better year after year,” Haynes says of the bassist. “He’s been quiet-quitting the last few years. We all knew it was coming, but it is heartbreaking.”
As for Kevin, he says, “Kevin is fantastic and we’re hoping it will be more than temporary … we’re all hoping that he’s here for a new chapter.”
