"...a BC / Plant cooperation"
Now that would have been something special - replace Chris with Robert Plant!
Well said. Chris even said he wasn't a fan of singing in Robert Plant's vocal style, and that he didn't like Plant's lyrics.Quote
I lost interest in the Black Crowes after the excellent TSHAMC, not so much because of what they did, just because my interests went elsewhere.
I thought BY YOUR SIDE was great.
But when I heard the material they were doing with Jimmy Page, my ears perked up - what a perfect combination! If the Robinsons were tired of being in a cover band they picked the wrong cover band to be tired of being in - and for what? A year?
What a load. If that's true. To go out and play those Zeppelin songs with JIMMY PAGE? COME ON. That is just NUTS. They should've ridden that train all the way to the station, gotten off and said Thanks! That was a blast! and moved on.
But nooooo. They had to be dicks.
The prices are bad enough given the band's pedigree. I mean, how big were these guys really in their prime??Quote
Prices aren't too bad either. All less than $150 in Atlanta
What happened on the Stern Show?Quote
Man, this “reunion” turned out to be as tawdry as Gorman warned. The Stern interview was painful. I’ll be interested to see if they can actually fill the sheds next summer. Maybe the market will be a lot stronger for them as they promise not to jam and play the “hits.” Whatever. I can’t see myself bothering to go.
Yeah, I assumed it would be something like that...hope I can catch the audio at some point.Quote
I never thought I’d live to see the day Chris Robinson made himself personally available for VIP meet-and-greet. I don’t think it’s too harsh to call out the hypocrisy; the anticorporate posture was very much his, not mine.
... nothing remarkable happened on Stern. The whole thing just felt forced and perfunctory and anticlimactic. Imagine how financially boxed-in Chris Robinson must be to explicitly promise not to jam and play the hits. And he claimed that his demand for a bigger share of the pie was an oblique way of breaking up the band. He didn’t really mean it. LOL.
bye bye johnny

They look quite happy and excited about this reunion...
So they're basically paying tribute to themselves with the ultimate retro nostalgia tour and no new music....
Sort of feel sorry for Rich who will have to put up with his douchebag brother, but I guess the same could be said vice versa.
how much more material do you want from these guys?
