In 1990, Atlanta’s Black Crowes released Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles ‘Jealous Again,’ ‘Twice As Hard,’ ‘She Talks To Angels,’ and the break-through cover of Otis Redding’s ‘Hard To Handle,’ the band topped 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, fought amongst themselves and against the rest of the world. In other words, they’ve done everything a legendary rock group should do.
While the Black Crowes have not toured Australian since their first incarnation, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood toured here, with the late Neal Casal, on guitar in 2015.
