This whole development is fascinating. I don't want to take sides either as I enjoy what Chris has going on in CRB and as a die hard fan of the Black Crowes I think The Magpie Salute is the only band that can lay claim to the keepers of the BC catalog. At this point, John Hogg sings the material better than Chris currently can. Chris' voice was shot on the last few tours. the music he writes for CRB is much better suited for his current singing style.

I can't believe this is going to be anymore than a "one off". Otherwise he is going to look like a huge hypocrite.

kind of interesting that CR would do a crowes deal. in addition to his previous comments (as others have posted) he said this in a interview published last week:

quote:
The audiences at the CRB shows aren't really expecting any Black Crowes songs, are they?

Nobody's been asking for them. I don't even see any Black Crowes T-shirts in the crowd. But that isn't to say I'm not proud of the music we made as the Crowes. Those are some very good songs, and the time will come when I want to sing them again. But for now, I just want to follow the path I'm on.

That being said if it was a line-up similar to what ABBDutch said, i would enjoy checking it out.

Rich Robinson adresses this in this lengthy interview around the 47 minute:

Backstory Presents: The Magpie Salute Live from The Cutting Room:

(Thanks to Alan Paul)




Rich uses the term "glaring hypocrisy" during that segment, and I think that just about sums it up perfectly. Chris has gone out of his way on more than one occasion to needlessly trash Magpie. I've always loved the Crowes, but Chris' douchebaggery truly knows no bounds.

I caught the show on Wednesday at Irving Plaza. I saw them 3 times this year, once in January when they started, once in August at the Peach Fest, and then Wednesday night.

Seeing and hearing them grow as a band has been one of the highlights of 2017 for me. They are a band now, now longer a "project". Been seeing the Black Crowes for 25 years and I have never seen Rich smile so much on stage. And seeing Marc happy and healthy playing this music is so great.

I try not to get caught up in the drama, but if Chris and Rich are the parents, and the black crowes catalog songs are the children, and this is a custody battle, Rich and the Magpie Salute deserve full custody with no visitation rights. Chris has bashed the Black Crowes and the Magpie Salute at any opportunity he has been given over the last 2 years. For the record, I like CRB alot, but let Rich carry the legacy of the Crowes forward from here.

I cannot wait to hear what the Magpie Salute comes up with in the studio this winter. This band's potential is limitless.

Put me down for this. All of it.

I really enjoy The Magpie Salute, but I like Luther era live Crowes best - as much as I love Marc Ford, I like Luther better and he's only been improving it seems. Chris Robinson, with Luther, MacDougald, and maybe Audley Freed playing Crowes tunes even as a one-off sounds like fun to me.

Iím excited about the wanee lineup Two nights of Phil Lesh. The band Phil assembled over Halloween was amazing. I hear St Paul and the Broken Bones is awesome. Dark star orchestra, Chris Robinson, north Mississippi all-stars. Karl Denson and pink talking fish both doing the Allmans should be special. Pigeons playing ping pong will be a blast. Iíve always wanted to see sonny landerth and Walter Trout. Troutís last album is pretty solid.
New Orleans suspects are really good, and Big Something is one of my favorite. Les bros, Marcus King..... all amazing.

Anything black crowes related would be the next biggest band on that list after Panic & Phil Lesh. I suspect Chris was wanted to be in the limelight a little more than where heís been with his band and thatís why he opted for this spin off so quickly after bashing magpie salute. Phil would be a great guest, as would jimmy herring or Luther Dickerson. Audley is a bad fit.

Iíve never been to the 420 fest in Atlanta but I can hardly imagine a better place to see a music festival than the Spirit of Swanee Music Park - so I donít feel like Iím missing out on anything.

Where is Warren Haynes? Where is Devon Allman? I was certain devon would be playing with Duane Betts. Itís a shame I donít see Ben Sparacoís name anywhere. Would love to see him sit in with everyone.

You know Audley was a member of The Black Crowes, right? IMO, that man is such a pro that he literally isn't a bad fit anywhere you put him.

I was trying to be polite. If I had my pick Iíd prefer somebody like Luther Dickerson, Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes, Jack Pearson, Derek Trucks - even Ben Sparaco. No offense to Audley, he just doesnít do it for me.
