The Black Crowes Announce New Web Series
The series premiere coincides with the release of Croweology, their first-ever double album of all-acoustic material with new arrangements of their best-known songs and deep cuts.
Throughout the month of August, the band will release one webisode per day via their website, www.blackcrowes.com. It's all here: the highs, the lows, controversies, the arrests, feuds and more. "20 Years of Tall Tales" was directed and produced by John Vanover and filmed earlier this month at Robinson's Los Angeles home.

- Why was the band really fired from the Aerosmith tour before being reinstated?
