Steve Gorman of the The Black Crowes will be at Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library to sign and sell copies of his memoir “Hard to Handle: The Life and Death of The Black Crowes.” This memoir is the first account of the band’s story.
Below is the publisher’s press release about Gorman’s fascinating book:
“With hits like “Hard to Handle,” “She Talks to Angels,” and “Remedy,” The Black Crowes topped the charts and reigned supreme over the radio waves for more than two decades. They were on the cover of Rolling Stone, MTV played their videos 24/7, and Generation X re-discovered the power of classic rock and blues by digging into multi-platinum classics like Shake Your Money Maker and The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.
However, stardom proved fleeting for The Black Crowes, and their success slowly dwindled as the band members got caught up in the rock star world and lost sight of their musical ambition. Despite the drinking, drugs, and incessant fighting between Chris and Rich Robinson (two of the angriest brothers in rock and roll), the band continued to tour. On any given night, they could be the best band you ever saw—or the most combative. Then, one last rift in 2013 proved too insurmountable to overcome. After that, the Black Crowes would fly no more.
