This is the key. If you don't put the "best available incarnation" on stage, then it's nothing more than using the brothers' rights to the name to generate a quick buck.
Is there even an unmet need out there amongst the general public right now for more "Black Crowes" content? Are there really tens of thousands of people sitting around wishing they could throw money at a setlist that includes She Talks to Angels" and "Go Faster"?
On top of that, anyone who's read the book or even paid attention to this band for the past 25 years knows that there's no way that a band with Chris and Rich at its nucleus and no "voice of reason" like Angelus can keep it together for more than a few weeks.
: It won't be about the music. It'll be about generating money. I've no interest in helping the Robinson brothers pay for their latest divorces if they aren't interested in putting the best available incarnation of the Black Crowes on stage. Rich understands this - does he think the initial interest in the Magpie Salute was because of their clever name? No, it was because he got Marc and Ed (and Sven) to join. It's why he asked Steve to join. Chemistry matters.
: "The music knows."
