Now in semi retirement after 50 years of being the one asking hte questions, Larry King is hitting the road in the new stage show "Larry King: Standing Up." Starting with his life growing up as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn to tales from his storied career as the greatest interviewer of all time, Larry King's style and wit will give audiences an evening to remember. Live audiences will also have the rare opportunity to turn the tables and actually ask Larry King questions. For those that can't make it to the live show, you can do the next best thing by following him on twitter.

You wouldn’t know it from listening to Warren Haynes play, but there was a time when he was much more into the Motown sound than guitar. It was only after being turned onto Eric Clapton by his older brothers that he picked up the six-string. Not long after discovering the pleasures of guitar playing, Warren found himself performing at local pizza parlors that had been converted into nightclubs. Haynes would go on to make a lot of friends in the industry, which led to him joining the Allman Brothers for eight very good years and five even better albums. Turns out that playing for just one band just isn’t enough for Mr. Haynes who went on to found the group Gov’t Mule, as well as release a few solo albums. Warren is currently a member of the Allman Brothers Band, Phil Lesh and Friends in addition to being the lead guitarist and vocalist for Gov’t Mule. Warren Haynes recently released a new solo studio project titled Man in Motion. Follow Warren on twitter and facebook.
