The Black Crowes' Chris Robinson: "I Don't Like My Brother"

There will be no airing of grievances, no therapy session and no family reunion anytime soon, under any circumstances for The Black Crowes.

That's according to singer Chris Robinson who led the band with his brother, guitarist Rich Robinson, for over 25 years before breaking up the group in 2015.

“Let’s get this straight: I don’t like my brother, I don’t get along with him, I don’t want to be in a room with him and I don’t want to play music with those people in that band,” Chris told Howard Stern in a recent interview.

He added that even in the event that The Black Crowes were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Chris would refuse to attend. 

And another thing!

When the topic of the Grateful Dead's legacy came up, Robinson went after John Mayer.

“Everything that Jerry Garcia ever talked about or stood for – John Mayer is the antithesis,” Robinson said, panning the guitarist. “There’s nothing unique about his playing. Jerry was one of the most unique musicians in the world. Jerry never played anyone else’s licks and now here’s John Mayer playing everyone else’s licks.”

Chris joined Stern to promote the new album his aptly-dubbed new band, Brotherhood. The album is called Barefoot in the Head. It is due out July 21.
