Watch Warren Haynes Set Fire to MSG with Dave Matthews Band on “Cortez the Killer”
“We gotta lot of friends in New York,” Dave Matthews said as he welcomed out special guest guitarist Warren Haynes during Dave Matthews Band’s second of two nights at NYC’s Madison Square Garden last week. Then, Haynes and the band proceeded to deliver a fiery performance of Neil Young’s classic, expansive tune “Cortez the Killer.”
DMB have released new, pro-shot video of the collaboration, which begins with Haynes and DMB guitarist Tim Reynolds trading slide-guitar solos before Haynes crunches into Young’s chord progression. He and Matthews shared vocal duties on the verses, with Haynes ripping solos in between—and drummer Carter Beauford taking it all in with his signature beaming smile.
Watch the MSG magic below. Next up for DMB is a show tomorrow night in Boston, while Haynes will host his 30th annual Christmas Jam this weekend in Asheville, NC.
