2) Sting Me

4) Soul Singing

"I don't have the motor skills to play the guitar."
Why is it, even after seeing the man play very well with my very own eyes more than once, do I still break out into hysterical giggles whenever I see Chris Robinson holding a guitar?  Probably just showing my age.

Gimme weed, whites, and wine
I have had this song stuck in my head since yesterday. It's called Willin' originally made famous by Little Feat in the 70's, but has been covered by everyone from Linda Rondstadt to the Black Crowes (THANK YOU, PHOEBOS APOLLON. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.) I've always had a soft, drooling spot for folk rock, and I reckon I always will.

Every time I listen to a new Crowes show I've downloaded, I am constantly amazed at the creepy coincidental evolution my musical taste has taken since I saw them in 1991 at my very first rock concert. With each album, the band just kept getting better. I know that By Your Side might be considered a monkey wrench, and aside from Horsehead and Virtue and Vice I would have to agree. However, even the greatest bands are granted at least one detour, and if By Your Side is the worst they can do, I'd like to be that awful.

Kinda like how all those Beatle 'fucking around in the studio on a bad day" bootleg takes are ten times greater than many other musicians could produce on their best day. Whenever anyone asks me why I don't play music much anymore, I give them that excuse. By now you're thinking to yourself, "That's one of the most pathetic cop-outs I've ever read."

Yes. Yes it is.

Great news!
I saw the following over at amorica.org:

"Tomorrow night The Black Crowes will be recording their performance at the Fillmore for DVD release. For this performance they have rescinded their generally accepted taping policy. All other performances at the Fillmore this weekend and next are open to record as normal."

Request
Hello. Hopefully somebody can help me out. I have been trying to find an mp3/flac of the Crowes covering the Stones’ Can’t You Hear Me Knocking. Looking at the crowesbase, they covered this song six times during the '01 tour. Does anybody have a copy of one these that they would be willing to send me through e-mail (amorican@bellsouth.net), or yousendit.com? I would be forever grateful.

I'm listening to the Crowes at Bonnaroo. Wish I could be there, but this will do just nicely. God, they are beautiful.

Hell yes.
I just read the best quote on the New Earth Mud boards by someone who met Chris walking down the street in Asheville not long ago.

Chris: I only read the Bible and Star Magazine.

(In response to some woman who had the Crowes confused with Christian music)

I saw the Crowes last night... here's a link to my post about it if anyone is interested... it was amazing! I had seen them once before with Jimmy Page, but it was so great to get to experience them solo as well.

Wow, am I the only other person here?

I just wanted to share the fact that today, I saw Chris and Rich Robinson walking down King Street in Charleston, SC. And I'm going to see their show at the Plex on Tuesday. KICK ASS. ;)
