Thanks for the rich update. I love the Barn. I haven't been there since Levons last show.
Chris Robinson and the Green Leaf Rustlers are playing at Levon's barn this Sunday.
Green Leaf Rustlers
Apparently, Rich Robinson has been or is at the same location producing Maker's album (thanks for that info posted earlier on this thread).
Didn't feel the need to say so but I will - this doesn't seem like a coincidence
I'm still pissed Chris canceled his local GLR show due to low ticket sales, that diva.
Just clicked on this thread while listening to Magpie.
Completely oblivious for a minute or so.......
Got that Mule lined up next.
I'm not saying they wont hook up. But Chris has a show and Rich is working with a band that opened for him.
Both are working. It just happens to be in the same place.
I'm not suggesting they are doing something together musically this weekend. I'm just thinking they may have a meeting or discussion of some kind about the possibility of working together in the future. It's not just the same town - it's the same building.
I've been worried ever since Magpie Salute went quiet after the end of their last tour dates. No new tour dates and the new album not coming out for some time (when all they had left to do was mix it).
As much as I liked them and was hoping to see them again soon, I wonder if attendance at their shows was low enough to the point that they can't go out on the road again. My theory was that the money from the Bad Company tour helped fund the 2017 tour and that an unexpected source of income is needed to move forward again.
Then, the CRB cancelled everything after July. Both Robinsons have schedules that look pretty open. My totally joking theory is that the Robinsons got advance copies of Steve Gorman's book and have found common ground in their hatred of how they are portrayed.
Whether it's at Levon's place this weekend or somewhere else, I'm guessing they will talk soon about possible future plans sometime soon. Doesn't mean they will actually do it though. Real common ground might be hard to find.
The attendance at Magpie shows was really disappointing BUT .... CRB got a multi-year head start on Magpie. It seems to me they are going through the usual new band growing pains. I think the lay-off after the last tour was probably always intended as a break. I will say Marc looked less than enthusiastic on the winter Magpie tour and I’m wondering if that was if he was unhappy or if it was just the beard. Lol
They may hook up! But I think it's just coincidence.
Most bands in that ilk would love to play and record at Levons. I sure as hell know I would like to.
Yeah, the first few CRB tours were even smaller venues than the last Magpie tour.
But at the Magpie show I went to in January, both Rich and Marc were really into it, and Marc looked especially happy. Though that was a hometown show for Marc, with his wife and close friends in attendance, but still.
not only does CRB have a head start they started right after the black crowes were gone so it became easier to draw a crowd. when I saw magpie salute there was barely a mention by the venue that it featured several members of the black crowes
Nice. Pictures are great. How was the show?
The show was superb. I have seen them three times now. Each of the members is truly amazing.
No Molo, though? Who played drums? I'm a huge fan of Greg, and would love to see him with Chris, but no Molo is no bueno. Ugh, just typing that out makes me angry, but it was such an easy pun!
I'm guessing it was a return to The Barn for Tony Leone per Greg's IG: Greg Loiacono on Instagram: “Strong gang right here strutting through Woodstock”
I like GLR. One of Chris’s better side ventures
It was Tony and he was wonderful.

Although still speculation, what I find most unfortunate about the Crowes and the members' individual legacies is the seeming atrophy of their original spirit. Things change and people change, yes, but, to me, the Crowes always stood for authenticity in the face of plastic commodity. This is a band that, despite its inner turmoil, always appeared to maintain personal and musical integrity in the harsh light of commercial adversity. The soul and swagger of this band, when found on a good night, is nothing short of an archetypal experience depicting the pain and glory of the human condition. It is equal parts majesty and humility.
I hope and wish the guys find clarity and compassion for each other, even if it be just as friends. I can't imagine the internal dialogue that they face within themselves after having had their lives in the public eye since their late childhood. It's easy to criticize their behaviour from the outside. It's another thing having lived their experience.
Steve Gorman interview May 14, 2019
Random song popped up on my iPod's shuffle during my commute this morning, live cover of Crowes doing "No More Cane on the Brazos", from Red Rocks, circa '05/'06, with Chris, Rich and Marc taking turns singing the verses (and of course Steve on drums and Ed on keys). It was so good! God, I miss that lineup.
Is there another song they've done where all three sing on their own?
Yeah. Hes not coming back lol
Don't Do it in 2005/6.
And what a cover it was! "My biggest mistake was lovin' you too much."
Also, once in 2005, I think they all took a verse on It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry.
