The Black Crowes Tell More Tall Tales Through August

As THE BLACK CROWES’ “Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys” tour gets set to start Friday, August 13-their last before the group takes an extended hiatus-the band has put together a web series of interviews with frontman CHRIS ROBINSON chronicling the multi-million selling band’s storied career.  The “20 Years of Tall Tales” webseries-available at http://www.blackcrowes.com/2010/ and via YouTube throughout August–is a candid look inside the band’s history.  In a recent webisode, CHRIS talks about the bacchanalian party the band threw upon the completion of the amorica album, replete with bizarre costumes, psychedelic mushrooms and cameras rolling.

 Eyes Set To Kill - Band PhotoThe webisodes debuted Tuesday, August 3, the street date for CROWEOLOGY (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records), their first-ever double album of all-acoustic material with new arrangements of their best-loved songs and deep cuts. In a four-star review, David Fricke of Rolling Stone proclaimed, “…the album is much better than a greatest hits affair, it’s a reason to go on (8/19/10).”
 
The web series has received attention from Ad Age. In a story headlined “Black Crowes Interview Series Shows How to Market Music,” the magazine described the series as a “a daily series of interview clips that, taken together, forge an oral history of the band.” The piece also noted: “What’s surprising is that so few performers have attempted to sidle up to their fans in a similar manner. Granted, there aren’t too many acts that can pull something like this off, whether owing to deficiencies in backstory or charisma, but I’m amazed by how few are trying (8/5/10).”
 
New webisodes are appearing over the next month, but check out these that have appeared so far…with more to come.
