Black Crowes guitarist, Rich Robinson, has stated this week, that the band has broken up. He alluded to his brother Chris wanting drummer Steve Gorman to relinquish his share of the band and for Rich to give up his equal share of the band, too. It was something Rich said he couldn’t do. It doesn’t sound like they will be doing anything together anytime soon. They all have solo projects: Chris has the Chris Robinson Brotherhood; Rich has his solo projects; and Steve is in the new supergroup, Trigger Happy.
Speaking of break ups, supergroup California Breed has split after one album and a tour. Jason Bonham left before the tour started and he was replaced by Joey Castillo (Queens Of The Stone Age). But guitarist Andrew Watt announced it first on Facebook and that he has new music coming out. Nothing from Glenn Hughes at the moment. But he can’t catch a break with being in supergroups. Black Country Communion didn’t last and now California Breed.
