With as checkered a career as the Black Crowes have had (fistfights with each other and management, personnel spasms, getting signed and eventually fired by a label that wanted them to wear overalls and straw hats (they said no and the label wouldn't do anything for them after that, but after they hit the big-time, the formerly limited-release album they recorded for them suddenly appeared on the market with the head of the label listed as executive producer...a lie, say the Crowes), getting kicked off a tour opening for ZZTop because they wouldn't acknowledge a sponsorship and they said so on stage, making a whole album about drugs and then not ever having it released, becoming rock n' roll spokespeople for NORML and using the big leaf as their stage logo on tour, busting up the band partnership and going through deox, rehab, jail, divorces and tabloid-fodder escapades in Hollywood, but they're still together...whereas the Georgia Satellites had already broken up and gone on to day jobs and other bands by the time "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" became a hit. They had to look up those guys, get 'em back together and make 'em do a tour. Word on the street was they broke up again after their one-hit wonder deal...but damn, that was a great song...Cheers, WC1
