Guitarist Rich Robinson was in one of the most successful bands in the 1990’s in The Black Crowes, In the last few years, Robinson has enjoyed a successful solo career releasing such albums as “Flux” and “Through a Crooked Sun.” Since the end of 2016, Robinson got together with Marc Ford (his old guitar player in The Black Crowes) and formed anew band called The Magpie Salute. The band has been building quite a buzz playing a few shows in 2017 and up through this years NAMM show. At NAMM was the first time I ever saw them and I must admit, I was taken aback by their overall performance. After this show, the band tucked themselves away to work on a new record that will be released on August 10th called “High Water 1.”
BackstageAxxess caught up with Robinson to talk about the upcoming shows the band has in NY (including stops in Buffalo, Waterloo and Peekskill.) We also talked about the new record and the process that went into creating it. We also dabble into other subjects including his thought with the current state of music and young aspiring artists trying to break through. In addition, we talk about his thought if The Black Crowes will ever see the light of day again.
Enjoy this conversation with The Magpie Salute’s own Rich Robinson!
