The Black Crowes and Shake Your Money Maker: “We never made a perfect record again”

Metal Hammer

“We still laugh about it now,” says The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, relaxing at his home in California. “We were one of those local bands that really wasn’t very popular. If we wrote a riff at sound-check then we played it that night, we’d play the song on the spot, just throw it in there. People weren’t so keen on that sort of thing.” 

Even their A&R man stumbled upon them by accident. George Drakoulias was in Atlanta scouting other bands for the A&M label. He happened to be nursing a drink in a bar when he asked the stranger next to him if there were any rock bands in town worth hearing.
