I have to give a big thumbs up to the Black Crowes. Last night in Miami they were definitely hitting the notes! I know the Crowes arenít popular here, but you should give them credit for at least trying to put on a legitimate show and for keeping the tradition of rock and roll going.

The two guitarists blend well together and they donít play the same songs every night. Also the crowd was excellent. You donít often find a nice friendly partying crowd here in South Florida.

I love the Crowes and have seen them about a dozen times. Unfortunetly, with so many other shows I had to pass on them this time around. I hope Luther is still in the mix next time they tour. I really want to see him with the Crowes.

I like the Crowes. Really enjoy Chris Robinson's voice with the addition of Luther Dickinson on guitar and slide he adds a nice edge. Warpaint, the newest release is worth purchasing IMO. They do sound like they ripped off the Stones in part though....

They are a great band....one of only a handfull that play actual rock n blues today, you just have to listen to an entire album or something.

Anyone notice this new channel "Palladia" on thier TVs? They have like 24/7 music stuff, from documentaries to concerts. The Black Crowes appear on an "Unplugged" show for an hour, and its really good, Luther adds a lot. Hes an awesome slide player. The channel also has DMB w/Warren at Piedmont Park, maybe Melissa w/Gregg too, I didnt watch the whole show. Also, if you have it, check out the Rothbury 2008 show. Its sweet.

I caught them last Friday in Charlotte. Great show- they rocked and they funked it out. Chris sounded great- and they played some excellent covers- including "Poor Elijah" from the Delaney and Bonnie live record they did with Eric Clapton. They also played a really obscure tune from '71 called "Stoned Faces Don't Lie" by the Sir Douglas Quintet, and for the encore they did Ray Charles' "Let's Go Get Stoned". Oh, and Rich Robinson sang on a cover of Neil Young's "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere". Good show.

You must not be able to think of about 90% of their catalogue.

What do you mean? They also played 5 or 6 tunes from Warpaint, including "Whoa Mule" with Steve on a Djembe out front. They played a jammed out version of "Downtown Money Waster", and they played "Thorn in my Pride" with a usual tasty jam in the middle that resulted in a ZZ Topish kind of bluesy riff in the middle. They played nothing from Three Snakes and One Charm, Nothing from Lions or By Your Side, they played "Sting Me" and "Remedy", "Seeing Things", and the coolest original they busted out was one of their unreleased tunes that just came out on their two albums that they had in the closet- "Diry Hair Halo" from the Tall sessions. It sounded great. I would have liked to hear some Three Snakes material, but I don't get caught up in what a band doesn't play- I just go to soak in what they do play. Thanks.

Jparadise,

My bad man. I see what you were responding to now. And I agree with your earlier statement- homeboy must not know 90% of their tunes. Jealous about you seeing the Crowes in Chicago. That's a great venue.

I'll be seeing them at the Ryman in Nashville Sun. night. Have seen them there before. Great Vibe in that building.

They played "Close up the Honky Tonks" that night. Was 2005.

I love Amorica and Three Snakes.

the brothers robinson can bring it, and with luther dickinson in there, rip it up. i'm all about the southern harmony line up, but when these guys are on, watch out, they can rock the house.

sometimes salvation!!!!!

No problem with an opinion sir. The Crowes are one of my all time favourites though and i'd urge you to have a listen to a few of the following a couple of times, and if they still don't appeal, then we tried:

Ballad In Urgency>Wiser Time (from Amorica)
Descending (")
Cursed Diamond (")
My Morning Song (Southern Harmony and Musical Companion)
Thorn In My Pride (")
Title Song (Tall)
Feathers (Tall)
Another Roadside Tragedy.

Some great tunes, with a real vibe. Fingers crossed.

Love the Crowes. But I always thought they sounded way more like Humble Pie than the Stones. I don't really ever feel like they're "ripping" anyone off too. I always felt like they were a great homage to all great guitar-rock bands that just aren't around anymore.
