THE BLACK CROWES
SURPRISE HOMETOWN FANS







CHRIS and RICH ROBINSON of THE BLACK CROWES rolled out a surprise for their fans Thursday night (May 5) at the first of four shows at the Tabernacle in their Atlanta hometown. The gig marked the return of THE BLACK CROWES’ original drummer, STEVE GORMAN, who has rejoined the band.

After having recently performed for 22,000 fans over seven sold-out nights in New York City, the group embarked on a leg of headlining gigs. These shows will run through May 29, plus a stop at the Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN on June 11 and a run of five sold-out shows in San Francisco at The Fillmore on August 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10. THE BLACK CROWES will also head out for a run of dates with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers beginning June 7 through August 30.

THE BLACK CROWES--Chris Robinson (vocals), Rich Robinson (guitars), Marc Ford (guitars), Eddie Hawrysch (keyboards), Sven Pipien (bass) and Steve Gorman (drums)--took a hiatus in October ’01, but have returned and are performing wide-ranging set lists that alternate every night, encompassing BLACK CROWES songs from their six studio albums, plus b-sides and unreleased material, alongside 19 special covers that illuminated the band’s rich musical heritage.

Sipe was never in the band to begin with. There was a new article and several reports that he was, but he never stepped on stage with the Crowes. Bet this explains why.

Good times in Croweville.

Well, I predicted in the thread announcing Sipe as the Crowes drummer that he would last about a week and was almost crucified for saying so.

I told you so.

And claiming that Gorman is the best drummer in rock is quite the overstatement.

He is very good. No doubt about that.

And anybody who can put with the Robinson Bros egos (ESPECIALLY Chris's) deserves a Medal Of Honor-no disrespect to our troops overseas.

I would say he is the best drummer for The Black Crowes, without a doubt. He's solid as a rock. There is no disputing that fact!

HaagenDazs, we ought to try to meet up at the show tonight. I'm thinking I'll be wearing my ABB t-shirt, or maybe my Gov't Mule shirt.

I talked to Jeff Sipe yesterday, and I want to clear up this admittedly confusing situation.

Jeff WAS the drummer for a few weeks, rehearsed with the band, learned all the songs, etc. After further consideration, the Crowes decided that they wanted to go with original drummer Steve Gorman, for reasons that have been elucidated fully in this thread.

Jeff has taken this with amazing class, which is no surprise to anyone who knows him. He said that the whole process was a positive one, and he gained greater respect for the Crowes music. He jokingly referred to the switch to Gorman as the band "going back to Plan A" and doesn't seem bitter.

I know how rumors can fly, so I wanted to make sure folks know what actually happened.

Rob, thanks for letting us know the real scoop. Jeff sounds like a class guy. I will have to look deeper into his music, as I haven't really been aware of him until now.

You going to any of TBC shows this weekend?
