Biography

Atlanta, Georgia, United States (1989 – present)

The Black Crowes are a -oriented hard rock jam band formed 1989 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States that has sold over 15 million albums and were hailed by Melody Maker as “The Most Rock N’ Roll Rock N’ Roll Band In The World” The band has toured with acts such as Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Jimmy Page, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Oasis and Lenny Kravitz. The Crowes are listed at #92 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of ”.

At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialize in was out of style. Only Guns N’ Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart while guitarist Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards’ lean attack with Ron Wood’s messy rhythmic sense. At their best, the Black Crowes echo without slavishly imitating their influences.

The Robinson brothers originally formed the Black Crowes in Georgia in 1984. By the time of their 1990 debut, Shake Your Money Maker, the group comprised Chris Robinson (vocals), Rich Robinson (guitar), Johnny Colt (bass), Jeff Cease (guitar), and Steve Gorman (drums).
