    No.......he just blows now.

    I was a huge Crowes fan a few years ago until they kicked Marc Ford out of the band. That was their biggest mistake, little Rich "Dick" Robinson couldn't deal with being the rhythm guitarist in the band. So they fire Marc, so "Dick" can be the man.....& again he's nothing but a rhythm guitarist. Decent songwriter but pretty lame guitar player. OK, maybe not lame but he's no Marc Ford.

    Sorry, I drifted away from the original question.

    What happened to Chris was, they (Black Crowes) did that tour with Page. I think Chris was trying to sound too much like Plant & not enough like himself. I think that has affected the way he sings now, he's in that Plant/Coverdale mindset. He's losing his soul (not that Plant doesn't have soul), he doesn't seem to approach signing like he used to. His brother is bringing the band down....fast.

    Too bad!

    I listened to the new Black Crowes album on a listening post and something Weird has happened to Chris Robinson's voice!

    He's gone from having that brilliant gospelly southern kinda Rod Stewart/Steve Marriot vibe to sounding like David fuckin' Coverdale!

    Please tell me that my ears are deceiving me, what the hell has happened to him? Has he had throat trouble or something?

    I think the new Crowes album is quite good. Much better than their previous two efforts. It's just straight ahead rock and roll people, don't analyze it...just enjoy it. Cause unfortunatly there isn't as much of it as there used to be out there.

    Losing his soul. That's exactly it! It's a damn shame. If I wanted to listen to David Coverdale I'd ... kill myself.

    Just kidding, I mean I'd listen to whitesnake. I wanna head Chris Robinson sounding like Chris Robinson, and DC sounding like DC y'know?

    This thread is birdshit. The Black Crowes have a tri-fecta of albums that I'd put up next to any rockers these days...By Your Side,the Jimmy Page live album,and now tha great,"Lions." Lions is the greates' album this year! Don't even mention Coverdale and maybe he'll just get lost and stay there. Chris sounds great on Lions and the band is on top of the world...still puddin' down great music...check out "Midnight From The Inside Out"--a badass feedback drenched boogie rocker...and Young Man Old Man--that's funky chicken indeed!!!!"Greasy Grass River" is juss bad ass!!!! I made a beatific review o'er at the DLR ARMY y'all should check out one time!!!!!!Dontcha be a rheumatism totin' decrepit motherfucker,check out the 'Crowes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I want to know what Black Crowes songs you are listening to?? I have been a fan since before the release of SYMM and I think he sounds great on Lions... I love all of their albums, and Lions is DEFINITELY a great one...

    Well, if you had just spent the last year on the road pretending to be Robert Plant, you might end up sounding like the original Plant wannabe (and overall mindless cheeseball [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] )
