Personalities | The Black Crowes | Nineties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1989–2002, 2005–present)

Musically, The Black Crowes were a throwback to the classic rock swagger of The Rolling Stones. Formed in Atlanta, Chris Robinson (vocals), Richard Robinson (guitar), Jeff Cease (guitar), Johnny Colt (bass) and Steve Gorman (drums) combined hard touring and compelling albums such as Shake Your Money Maker (1990) and The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion (1992). These laid the foundations for a long-term career and extensive chart success, despite a 2002–05 sabbatical.
