Now that the Black Crowes’ second hiatus is underway, the individual bandmembers have technically become free agents. During their 2002-2005 hiatus, Crowes frontman Chris Robinson took the opportunity to form New Earth Mud — essentially, a solo project. Well, as we all know, history repeats itself. Thus, when the Black Crowes played their final notes “for awhile” in December, Robinson wasted little (read: “no”) time in getting on with the next — the Chris Robinson Brotherhood.
