Black Crowes Confirm Breakup

The Black Crowes are no more. After 24-years the band is permanently finished.

Founding member and guitarist Rich Robinson has confirmed the demise of The Black Crowes. “It is with great disappointment and regret that after having the privilege of writing and performing the music of The Black Crowes over the last 24 years, I find myself in the position of saying that the band has broken up,” he announced.

Robinson reflected on the achievements over the years since he formed the Black Crowes with his brother Chris Robinson in 1989. “I hold my time with the Black Crowes with the utmost respect and sincerest appreciation. It is a huge swath of my life’s body of work. I couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished and deeply moved by the relationships people created and maintained with my music. That alone is the greatest honor of being a musician. I love my brother and respect his talent but his present demand that I must give up my equal share of the band and that our drummer for 28 years and original partner, Steve Gorman, relinquish 100% of his share, reducing him to a salaried employee, is not something I could agree to.”

Robinson concluded his statement by thanking everyone for supported the band across its two and a half decades. “There are so many people who have helped and supported us along the way. I want to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our fans, our friends behind the scenes, and to everyone who was a part of The Black Crowes,” he said.

The Black Crowes formed in the Robinson Brothershometown of Marietta, GA in 1989.

Their first album ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ delivered the hits ‘Hand To Handle’, ‘Jealous Again’ and ‘She Talks To Angels’.

The band’s second album ‘The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion’ was a no 1 album in the USA and generated another hit with ‘Remedy’.
