I remember seeing the cover of Amorica in the racks when I first started buying CDs and being mildly curious, but I’m fucked if I can even name a single Black Crowes song, let alone know what it sounds like.

I can name two Black Crowes songs, She Talks to Angels and Hard to Handle. The latter is a Blues Brothers-esque take on Otis Redding and the former is a still popular with muzak programmers for some reason. That's one more song than I can name of the Spin Doctors, so there's that.
(Also, the Amoreca cover was originally a Hustler cover in the 70s, so they can't even have credit for that.)
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE

Seems like Black Crowes fans are the kind of people who assume that they can speak authoritatively for the likes and dislikes of The Silent Majority. Uh huh. So, typical Shites. So yeah this planned mega-tour reunion bullshit will obviously end in (unsold) tears. Do they think they're as big as The Backstreet Boys?

I'm a big Stones fan, so there's a lot of crossover there. Crowes fans get their noses way out of joint when someone just dismisses them as also-rans or a footnote. It's pretty hard to not egg them on. For whatever reason, I seem to like Magpie Salute, which is the guitar player brother's band with an ex Crowes guitar player, Marc Ford. It's not groundbreaking or anything but I think they're pretty good. If they're done now that the brothers are back together it won't ruin my life, though. I've got two Magpie Salute albums and I feel like that's enough. I can't be catalog on everything.
