The Black Crowes


The second band on my “Top Three Fave Bands” list is The Black Crowes. (and really, they are more like 1B.) I have been a fan since their very first album and I have seen them live 37 times. (updated 11-8-13) Prior to 2010, Chris Robinson was the last person on my list of “people I really, really want to meet before I die.” Never say never, right?!

On March 20, 2003 I had the chance to see Hookah Brown, Rich Robinson’s solo band at the time. They played an amazing set and I was able to meet the band afterwards. You can read all about that here.

I did get to talk to Chris after the 12-18-10 Black Crowes Fillmore show in San Francisco, but it didn’t quite go down like I had it planned out in my head. On December 18 and 19, 2010, I was also able to talk with most members of The Black Crowes after the Fillmore shows in San Francisco, CA.

On 7-26-11 My Dream FINALLY Came True! I met Chris Robinson after a Chris Robinson Brotherhood show in Milwaukee and it was THE best experience.
