As a member of the busy Allman Brothers Band, Phil Lesh and Friends and Gov't Mule, guitarist-singer Warren Haynes easily qualifies as one of the hardest-working men in rock. Given a personality to match his enormous talent, it's easy to see why he's in such demand. But just last year, Haynes' musical future was uncertain. In August 2000 he lost his bassist and musical soul mate, Allen Woody, with whom he formed Gov't Mule (with drummer Matt Abts) in 1994.

The '90s are surely a curious time in music. Even as the forces of alternative rock and hip-hop dominate the headlines and a good portion of the charts and CD sales, many veteran groups written off as dinosaurs long ago have made the unlikeliest of comebacks. Of those, none has been more surprising than the return of the Allman Brothers Band.

It looks like the old Dead are gettin' on. Surviving members of the Grateful Dead say they'll regroup for a 19-city tour -- their first since 2004 -- beginning April 12 in Greensboro, N.C. The group, which now just calls itself the Dead, announced its plans last week. Original band members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann have toured sporadically since the 1995 death of guitarist Jerry Garcia but struggled to get along personally and artistically.

Jonathan Haynes stood in front of the scorer's table at Madison Square Garden a few minutes after Villanova won the Big East Tournament, hands acting as a visor over his eyes, looking up into the lights and the crowd on that side of the Garden for his parents. Haynes comes out of the Germantown section of Philadelphia, 133 W. Manheim, and he is a senior at Villanova, and this was the biggest win he had had in college basketball.

Last year around this time, the Allman Brothers Band reunion tour passed through town with a Greek Theatre show spunky enough to make even the most marginal fan wish it would stay reunited long enough to record a new album. It did. "Seven Turns" is the band's first record in nine years--with a leadoff song, "Good Clean Fun," that quickly made its way to the top of the album-rock radio airplay charts--and the group returned to a nearly-full Greek on Thursday in support of it.

For a few shining moments in the early-to-middle '70s, Dickey Betts was the American guitar hero, and never more deservedly so than when the light, lyrical twin-lead guitar lines of the Allman Brothers Band's instrumental "Jessica" were embedding themselves into the public rock consciousness. Betts was and is at his finest when he walks on the sunny side of the street with that original, upbeat and peculiarly Southern style of riffing.

Bands in flaming headdresses, bands led by wrathful wild men, demonstrations of bile drinking--those were some of the interesting sights at Irvine Meadows back when "Lollapalooza" used to stop there. But that famous attitude-rock extravaganza has skipped Irvine since its second run in 1992. In its place Saturday came H.O.R.D.E., a traveling festival where all the bands did was play. But boy, could they play.

Spencer Dryden, a drummer for the legendary rock band the Jefferson Airplane, has died of cancer. He was 66. Dryden, who died Monday at his home in Petaluma, Calif., had retired from performing 10 years ago, although he hadn't been working much before that. "I'm gone," he told the San Francisco Chronicle last May. "I'm out of it. I've left the building."
