Black Crowes drummer updates band’s hiatus

Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman is sharing an update on the band’s current hiatus in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

"I've said in the past, 'I know we'll work again' or 'there's no way we'll work again,' and I've been wrong. But right now, the likelihood of us doing anything again is as low as it's ever been," says Gorman. "We could obviously all see things differently in a year, but I'll be surprised if the Black Crowes do something again. Ever."

"You know, 2015 is the 25th anniversary of our first album release and we're not working," he adds. "You could certainly make a strong case that we should tour next year, but we're all doing our own projects."

When the group parted ways following the end of their 2013 tour, the Crowes issued a statement confirming that they have no future plans for touring as band members will focus on solo releases and projects in 2014.

Singer Chris Robinson released the latest Chris Robinson Brotherhood album, “Phosphorescent Harvest”, in April, while brother and guitarist Rich put out his third solo project, “The Ceaseless Light”, in May.

As for Gorman, the drummer returned to American supergroup Trigger Happy, a lineup that features singer Joan Osbourne, session guitarist Tom Bukovac, singer/songwriter and Black Crowes guitarist Jackie Greene and bassist Nick Govrik. The band recently released their self-titled debut album.
