Chris Robinson Opens Up About Black Crowes Break-Up

The Black Crowes are officially no more.

In a conversation with HuffPost Live on Friday, frontman Chris Robinson confirmed that the band has "broken up."

This comes on the heels of a January statement made by his brother, Rich Robinson, where he claimed the group was dissolving due to unfair financial requests made by Chris.

While Chris said that he "would've preferred to have just left" the band as it was, he admitted that he and his brother had always been strained.

"We never had much of a relationship," he said.

When host Ricky Camilleri asked if the band had given him as much joy as he'd hoped, Robinson replied, "No, not really."

But still, Robinson is grateful for the experiences he had with the Black Crowes, and looks back at that time fondly.

"I was in the Black Crowes for 20-something years," he recounted. "That was fantastic. What a rare, unique opportunity ... It was great. It was cool. All the bad stuff, all the good stuff. It is what it is."
