Warren Haynes’ longtime and beloved guitar tech, Brian Farmer, died Sunday, August 24, at his home near Nashville. Farmer died peacefully in his sleep. He was 53. "He was a close friend, a devoted worker and a lover of life,” Haynes said. “We traveled around the world together and shared many experiences—mostly while laughing. He will be missed by a huge circle of friends and family."
