The Black Crowes rocked the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Saturday night. Inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, they played a three-song mini set, closing with an awesome rendition of “Georgia on My Mind.”
Afterward, when he took the stage to accept the honor, front man Chris Robinson joked that Saturday night marked the first time in 20 years that the guys had all washed their hair.
As engaging as they were on stage, we hear it was a different story back stage. A couple of sources who had back-stage duties that night said the band was sort of particular.
There was to be no contact between the band and the various persons working back stage. No photos. No contact. One source said workers were told to not even look at the Crowes.
Hey, they’re rock stars, right? We suppose they’re sort of duty bound to be eccentric.
