Longtime Allman Brothers Band guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks have announced their intention to leave the group at the end of 2014. The duo wrote in a statement, “We will be forever grateful for the opportunity and the experience, and for the love, enthusiasm, and support of the incredible fans. We are both preparing to dig even deeper into our various creative and musical endeavors and, as a result, 2014 will be our final year as part of the band.”

Following their 25 and 15 year respective run with the classic rock mainstays, Haynes and Trucks will look to 2015 to focus on their own musical projects and families. Haynes wrote, “I look forward to maintaining a vigorous schedule which will include many more years of touring and recording with Gov’t Mule in addition to my solo projects and to enjoying more family time as well.” Trucks added, “I feel that my solo project and the Tedeschi Trucks Band is where my future and creative energy lies.”
