Eddie Harsch

May 27, 1957, Toronto, Canada

Eddie booked a flight to Atlanta to meet up with the Crowes on the set of a video shoot. On his first night there, “Nobody even talked to me. I was invisible. But on the second night, Johnny came up to me and said something like, 'Dude, you're that keyboard player? Wanna go for a drink?' So we went to the Gold Club, and some dude jumped on Johnny, sucker-punched him. A giant fight broke out, and I ended up on top of this guy, pummelin'. The next day Johnny went back to the Crowes with a report: ‘I don't know if this guy can play, but he can fight, and that's good enough for me!’” Eddie did have to play, eventually, but one quick two-song audition was all it took: “You're in.” ~ BlackCrowes.net: Eddie Harsch Interview ~ September 1996 © Keyboard Magazine

The Black Crowes

According to People magazine, after late night television host David Letterman heard the Crowes perform the single Jealous Again, led by the Robinson brothers - Chris, a captivating singer and the band's lyricist, and reserved, guitar-playing Rich - he summed up their improbably wanton success by asking “Isn't that rock and roll the way God wanted it to be?” ~ Musicianguide: Black Crowes ~ retrieved December 18, 2013 © Musicianguide
