Sunday Service With The Black Crowes
It indeed felt like going to church....for a music fan. Last nights concert was one of the best shows I have ever been to. Almost every style of music was represented in the show. Rock,gospel,soul,country was all mixed up into a 3 hour blast of fun.
Its really hard to put into words what last night was really like. I guess the best way to describe it was, after 5 songs I looked down at my arms and the hair was standing up. Chris Robinson is a total rock star. Works the mic. stand like a young Rod Stewart, struts around like a hybrid of Mick Jagger and Robert Plant....and yet is a total original. The rest of the band is playing better than ever.
Below is a setlist of the show....I will give some short comments by some of the songs.
STARE IT COLD -Great song to kick start the night off.
STING ME - One of my favorites...great Stones like riffs
