I always felt that the Black Crowes had a tremendous amount of potential that they didn't QUITE fulfill.
"Shake Your Money Maker" backs this assertion up; that was early in their career, and gave us glimpses of where they could have taken their unique brand of Southern Rock.
I don't know; they kind of got caught up in the Hollywood scene (Kate Hudson, etc.), and maybe (more) drugs would've been a better path toward genuine musical focus and development. I think this is especially true for them.
They had the raw skills and talent to go a long way toward becoming a seminal group.
Really bummed the CRB was cancelled, I hope he plays a smaller venue down here, or just pops in somewhere.
Available on http://www.savage-souls.com! Mainstream source (iTunes, Google Play, etc.) release on Nov. 11th!
Portable Madness Productions did not do this video.
Saw these guys when they opened for Crowfield at the old Village Tavern a couple of years ago. That was the only time I've ever bought a band's cd the first time I heard them and I still play it frequently. This is a band that truly deserves recognition.
I have downloaded two of his songs and they are great !
If you don't know the Soul Rebels, you need to....
Wonderful job by Frankie. It takes real guts to get up in front of an audience and sing. And for Darius to join in is just icing on the cake!
I guess the "kids rock" business isn't as good as it used to be.
Oh, sorry. That was The Wiggles.
"It was a place called Club Dog Alley," Manfred remembers. "It was in an older part of town, and it was filled with character and characters. In some ways it was a bizarre alternate universe — a cool place."
It would be nice to have a column with memories of some of the shows taking place at Club Dog Alley or any of the older clubs.
Social Distortion played club dog around the same time, if i remember right, and played a lot of stuff off the first album. Now that is a memory.
Before it was club dog alley....
She's my favorite local artist, hands down. Incredible voice and outstanding original material.
Here is the story I was told "off the record" years ago! I have been in radio over 3 decades & if you get the right person, in the right studio, at the right time, in the right mood, and the interview clicks it is amazing what some honest folks will tell you. There's no sense in saying who said this and I am paraphrasing because it was too many years and stations ago. Chuck Negron's struggle with drugs is no secret and he told the hard to read details in his autobiography. There have been sporadic shows over the years with all three members but Danny Hutton is the guy that is locking Chuck out. If you followed the band and their sound thru the years it is no big secret that Cory easily had, and has, the best voice. Chuck was a close second in voice but easily the most popular & favorite among fans. It is 100% Danny Hutton refusing to allow Chuck to work with them again, the reason? Hutton essentially becomes a back-up singer again because Cory & Chuck sang the majority of the hits & without Cory Danny gets to sing more and be out front which is what he REALLY wants/needs! It has nothing to do with money or Chuck's drug issues from back in the day as he has been drug free for more then 20 years now! It has ONLY to do with Danny sick of being in the background!
During the end of their run they toured with The Beach Boys and the tour with ALL Three of the Dogs did very well with many sold-out shows. In the early 80's Negron said he called Hutton's house to talk to him about all 3 reuniting and going on the road with The Beach Boys again for their "Final Tour". When he called Hutton's house with the idea Danny's wife answered & Hutton refused to talk to him so Negron had to lay the idea out to Hutton's wife & Danny never called Negron back about the idea. Years later Chuck heard that Cory never heard about the idea but it didn't surprise Negron because apparently Hutton & Wells simply do not like each other & even though they do about 75 shows a year together Hutton & Wells STILL despise one another! Negron said, "They never got along. They’re unkind to one another, I guess. Cory is terribly disappointed in Danny and how he does business. Danny just dislikes Cory. He really dislikes him. So it’s just one of those things. And they’re out there on stage. They don’t talk to one another. They don’t look at one another. I can’t believe they’re working because I would think the word would be out that it’s just not a very friendly show They hate each other. They don’t talk. They don’t ride in the same car. They don’t fly on the same flight. In the hotels, if there is only one elevator, one guy stays on the first floor. They do everything they can not to see one another because they get into fights. Can you imagine two old men hitting each other? It’s comical! Now you know who to blame & it is NOT Cory Wells or Chuck Negron!
Caleb Bodtorf is Guy Fawkes reincarnate. He is actually quite dangerous.
There are just some bout dumb people out here. Think about this, what did they do to land in prison. Bet u be pissed if they hurt u ur Ppl ur FAM, or if ur shit got stole, or ur daughter raped. That's the thing its always free dem let them have their fun, but as the co said its not UR LIFE at risk when shit pops off. I been locked up. I seen the dumb bs inmates fight over n it could be one sign word or look. Ur in prison. Do ur time. Yes get creative write ur shit down not try to boost a career behind bars for what street cred. How many Ppl can say they know an inmate or co didn't get hurt BC dude didn't get his call to his girl n flipped. Think I'm playing? Shits real
