Black Crowes- A Conspiracy- London 1994

One of the reasons I could forgive Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson his "always on" opinions on everyone and everything was because he had a great live band, and here is another example straight off the Air London studio floor, no overdubs,…

Cry of Love- Peace Pipe- August 1993

With a band named after a Jimi Hendrix album, and  sounding like  Free meets Lynyrd Skynyrd, how could I not love this band? Great guys too in Cry of Love, including the true heart guitarist Audley Freed who grew up  idolizing Southern Rock…
