The Black Crowes: 'Warpaint' Unplugged Much has been made of the relationship between brothers Chris and Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes. When the two arrived separately, it didn't dispel the rumors, but it turns out they just needed to go different places afterward.

Over the years, much has been made of the relationship between Chris and Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes. So when they arrived at WFUV separately, well, let's just say that didn't dispel those rumors. But it turns out that they were going to different places after the interview, and travel just made more sense this way.

Chris arrived second and met Rich in the studio. They chatted and immediately started running through some of the new songs from Warpaint, as well as an old favorite from Amorica. Chris is a tremendous interview with plenty to say about the band's history and reunion, as well as the state of the music industry.
