Band: Black Crowes
Drummer: Steve Gorman
Who are they? Seasoned southern rockers always keen to do things their own way.
Sounds like: Notorious blues-tinged rockers delivering album after album of spaced-out jam classics.
Why should you check them out? Because they won't be around for much longer. The Crowes have just released two-disc acoustic anthology Croweology and after a US tour will be putting themselves on hiatus, which you can read more about in our interview with drummer Steve Gorman.
Croweology is a perfect introduction to the band for newbies, with stripped-down renditions of familiar favourites filling the double-disc set. But, for those keen to get a real insight into Gorman and the Crowes, you'll have to dig back into their wealth of seminal albums - Shake Your Money Maker and By Your Side are particular Rhythm favourites.
