CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson hasn't heard anything from his brother Chris or any of the other guys in the band since the release of his latest solo album, "Through A Crooked Sun."
"No, nothing," Robinson said, sounding not at all perturbed. "I don't think I will. We're on a break and all just doing our own thing."
On break and on his own, Robinson will play "Mountain Stage" Sunday night, performing his own material, which doesn't sound completely dissimilar to the music he's made with the Crowes.
The Black Crowes have a bluesy rock sound inspired by bands like The Rolling Stones and Humble Pie. "Through A Crooked Sun" sounds an awful lot like a Black Crowes album, but without Chris' swaggering vocals.
Robinson's solo album is perhaps more plainspoken than a Black Crowes record, but it also seems more personal.
