The Black Crowes
On the back of a hit cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” Chris and Rich Robinson struck it rich with The Black Crowes’ 1990 debut album. The band became one of the jam scene’s (and pot scene’s) most beloved bands, selling more than 30 million albums. But the Robinsons also became nearly as famous for their feuds as their music. Their scuffles have resulted in multiple breakups and at least one scrapped album. In 2010, The Black Crowes released a double acoustic album, after which it announced yet another “indefinite hiatus.” —Jeff Royer
