Steve Gorman, the group’s former drummer has been informed of a potential comeback, although he was not approached to participate.
Word on the street is that former manager Pete Angelus said that he is “aware of the deal” that Chris and Rich Robinson “made with Live Nation for a 2020 tour,” while another source that is “familiar with the matter” simply said that “there might be something in the works.”
THE BLACK CROWS have been inactive since they played their final show in December 2013.
Last year, Chris put together a band called AS THE CROW FLIES (pictured below)to perform primarily BLACK CROWS songs.
Joining the singer in the initial version of the group were fellow former CROWES members Adam MacDougall, Andy Hess and Audley Freed, plus Marcus King and Tony Leone.
Rich Robinson is currently involved with THE MAGPIE SALUTE in which he is joined by Marc Ford from THE BLACK CROWES, bassist Sven Pipien (also from the CROWES) along with lead singer John Hogg (HOOKAH BROWN, MOKE), drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua.
In a recent interview, Gorman said that Rich and Chris Robinson will “probably be on the road soon together with a whole new band calling it THE BLACK CROWES.”
