The Black Crowes are showing some new activity on their Facebook page, and it’s only adding to the rumors that brothers Chris and Rich Robinson have made up.
Presented, without caption, is the new profile picture, which is artwork from the band’s 1990 single release of “Twice As Hard.”
Rumors of the Robinson brothers making up for a tour under the Black Crowes name have swirled for some time now. They were given extra credence when former Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman alluded to the buzz while doing interviews in promotion of his new book Hard to Handle: The Life and Death of the Black Crowes — A Memoir.
Gorman said on Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown, “And [Chris and Rich Robinson] will probably be on the road soon together with a whole new band calling it The Black Crowes, and that’ll be fine if people want to go and hear ‘Hard to Handle’ every night. That’s totally cool, but that’s not the band that I gave my life to for 27 years and that a lot of other people did, too. That’s just two guys in their 50s who painted themselves into a corner going out and playing music. And again, they have every right to do that…I don’t think either one of them wants to do it. In a perfect world, I don’t think they’d ever be in the same room together again. I just don’t think they have a lot of options right now.”
