There is a lot of press and talk about the Black Crowes returning to the stage. It just showed up on my Google News feed. Well, at least it's a change from the usual weird Beatles-based 'rock news' stories they seem to think I will be interested in. I remember when the Crowes first started. We saw them at a mid-size club (the Omni) in Oakland CA. Jam-pack fun time. They were gonna be the new Stones - right down to the open-G guitars. Everybody loved them, but I kept trying to find any kind of hook or chorus that would leave an impression. They played well, and acted the part, but I think their material was weak. I had an album or two, but I can barely remember anything about their songs. Any fans here who can set me straight? Did they have popular radio hits? I admit, about that time I switched off listening to music on the radio.
