Although the Allman Brothers Band members are all busy with their solo careers and side bands, guitarist Warren Haynes remains hopeful for a new studio album. Haynes, who just wrapped his successful Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration concerts, hits the road with the band later this month, and feels that the Allmans have what it takes to record their first new album since 2003's Hittin' The Note: "Y'know, that's a possibility -- and maybe even a better possibility than it was a year ago, I don't know. We, we're not ready to go in anytime soon; but we are a lot closer than we were. I don't know if that's gonna happen or not."
