The Black Crowes: Guilty!

Mat Snow, Q, August 1991

Guilty of making music that was going out of style in 1973. Guilty of flying the tattered flag of rock'n'roll idealism. Guilty, indeed, "of never kissin' anybody's ass!" The Black Crowes admit it all – and America loves them for it. "We're rocker hippies," they tell Mat Snow. "We don't live by other people's rules."
