In 1990, when journalists were lamenting the death of rock, as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, Atlanta's Black Crowes gave the genre a swift and much needed kick in the butt with Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles Jealous Again, Twice As Hard, She Talks To Angels, and the rollicking cover of Otis Redding's Hard To Handle, the band immediately took the rock world by storm, topping Rolling Stone's 'Best New American Band Readers Poll' in late 1990.
The Black Crowes went on to release eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way. They sold out shows around the world; had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member; got kicked off a tour with ZZ Top for insulting the sponsor; got screwed by bad record deals; got married and divorced, plus fought amongst themselves and the rest of the world, In other words, they've done everything a legendary rock group should do.
Brothers Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson reunited in November 2019 and hit the road again in 2020.
