This interview with Warren Haynes really needs to be in both threads, this and the Sumlin tribute:

[www.relix.com]

You had quite an extraordinary few weeks in February. You performed for the President, actually you performed with the President and then a few days later you appeared at the Apollo Theater for the Hubert Sumlin memorial benefit. This meant that you played with both Keith Richards and Mick Jagger over the course of a few days. Let’s start with the Red, White, and Blues event at the White House. How did that came about and what that was like?

We got a call one day saying that this was supposed to happen and would we be available? Absolutely. Which wound up for me—I don’t know what you know about my schedule that week—but I went from the Grammy thing which became ten days in L.A.—to being in San Francisco for rehearsals and that webcast with Phil. Then we did the four days in Denver with three shows. It would have been easier for me if I had just gone to D.C. for the next three days but I had a commitment in L.A. on the 20th. So I went to D.C. on the 19th for the rehearsal for the White House, back to L.A. to the 20th, and back to D.C. on the 21st. But I would never have turned down such a wonderful opportunity. I was extremely honored to be part of it and I thought it turned out great. I had to miss one day of rehearsal but I thought the whole experience was amazing.

Did you know the President was going to sing “Sweet Home Chicago” or did that come up spontaneously?

That was totally spontaneous. That was Buddy Guy. As the President was about to leave, he said “We heard you sing Al Green. You gotta sing with us.” And the President was going, “No, no, no” and Buddy’s going, “Come on, come on, you can do it!” He was genuinely not prepared to do it. It wasn’t planned. And he genuinely was saying, “No!” and Buddy was like, “Come on!” Then finally Mick Jagger gave him his mic and there was nothing he could do, so he had to sing. But that was totally impromptu.

There’s a moment, before he does it where Michelle Obama rolls her eyes as if to say, “here we go again…”

That’s right. That was all real.

There’s also a video of you performing by yourself in the White House. How did that come about and where exactly are you?

In one of the other rooms earlier in the day. They asked me if I would do something by myself and I said sure. So I chose “River’s Gonna Rise” because it’s kind of a political statement. And the way it all comes across is that the President is introducing me.

Did you have any interaction with the President in that setting?

In this case, it was just the show itself and everybody had their picture taken with him and all that stuff. But I’ve been very fortunate to have been there four or five times.

And Mick Jagger, that was the first time you performed with him, correct?

That was a first. That was the first time for me playing with Mick Jagger and with Jeff Beck. Then two nights later at the Apollo for the Hubert Sumlin tribute, I played again with Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons as well as with Keith Richards for the first time. So I played with Mick and Keith in a three day period, both of whom I had never played with before.

Don't think Mick was there. But Dave is right. Bruce was great last night.

Now L'Wren is out and about in London with friends and apparently without
Mick tweeting stuff like this:

Very good performance by Mick. I liked especially "commit a crime". Only the harmonica playing on Miss You indeed sounded pedestrian. We all know he's able to do much better than that.

Jagger is the best when it comes to live shows,noone can touch him.I hope the stones go on tour in 2013 and claim their title back with respect.
LONG LIVE THE STONES,THEY WAY OF LIFE. ITS ONLY ROCK-ROLL BUT WE LIKE IT.

Since the White House gig I've been hearing MISS YOU played a ton on the radio (in S. Calif). Almost like it's a new hit single. So that's one consequence of Mick playing MISS YOU at the White House.

LISTEN: Obama on Jagger
Back in Febuary, Mick Jagger led a blues performance at the White House featuring Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Booker T. Jones and other musicians. What President Obama enjoyed almost as much as the show itself was watching Jagger rehearsing the night before. "It was really nice to watch him just trying to work through the numbers with the house band, treating them with respect, and caring about the music," Obama told Rolling Stone editor and publisher Jann S. Wenner during an interview in early April in the Oval Office.

"Mr. Obama recalled watching singer Mick Jagger rehearse for his appearance during a February White House tribute to the blues and was impressed by the respect the Rolling Stones frontman displayed toward lesser-known and younger musicians. He said Jagger recalled the generosity he had experienced upon meeting blues greats like Howlin' Wolf and B.B. King, and displayed "the sense of him wanting to do that same thing, that it all comes full circle."
