What Black Crowe's Band Member Are You?
The Black Crowes (or the Crowes) are a blues-oriented hard rock jam band that has sold over 20 million albums and were hailed by Melody Maker as "The Most Rock 'n' Roll Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World". In 1990, the readers of Rolling Stone named it the 'Best New American Band'. The band has toured with acts such as Aerosmith, Jimmy Page, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, AC/DC, The Grateful Dead, and Neil Young. The Crowes are listed at #92 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".
n 1989 Mr. Crowe's Garden changed their name to The Black Crowes. They were signed to Rick Rubin's label Def American, and released their debut album Shake Your Money Maker. With the success of their album they went out on tour to support it. They played several dates supporting ZZ Top. During this tour Chris was criticized for talking to the audience about his opposition to corporate sponsorship. This led to ZZ Top kicking The Black Crowes off the tour. In the media, Robinson would openly discuss his use of marijuana. The Crowes played The Atlanta Pot Festival in 1992 which would ultimately label them as a "stoner band".
