In a wide-ranging and freewheeling interview marking the 20th anniversary of their landmark multi-platinum debut,
1990's Shake Your Moneymaker, frontman Chris Robinson talks about where The Black Crowes, arguably
one of the most misunderstood rock bands of all time, have been and where they are now.
Throughout the month of August, the band will release via their website (www.blackcrowes.com) one webisode per day. It’s all here: the highs, the
lows, controversies, arrests, feuds and more. “20 Years of Tall Tales” was directed and produced by John Vanover
and filmed earlier this month at Robinson’s Los Angeles home.
• Did The Black Crowes, a band that has never played it musically or commercially safe and at times been crucified
for it, really spend $1,000,000 recording an album (Tall) that went unreleased for more than a decade?
• What really happened in that Denver convenience store that led to Chris’ arrest?
• Why was the band really fired from the Aerosmith tour before being reinstated?
• What really went on in the studio the night the band held a bacchanalia for the Amorica album?
• What really drives the relationship between Chris and his brother, guitarist Rich Robinson?
• How did the union of The Black Crowes and Oasis on the “Tour of Brotherly Love” actually cancel out the feuds of both bands’ brothers?
• And what about the band’s recently announced lengthy hiatus that will begin when their upcoming “Say Goodnight
To The Bad Guys 2010” tour ends this year with an epic six-night stand in San Francisco at The Fillmore December
