Rich Robinson guests with Blackberry Smoke

Blackberry Smoke are seen performing the Black Crowes’ track Wiser Time with Rich Robinson in a live video.

It was shot at the Telluride Blues And Brews fest in Georgia last month, after band frontman Charlie Starr approached ex Crowes man Robinson about making a guest appearance.

Starr tells Rolling Stone: “If you’re going to play a song by the Black Crowes you need to bring your A game.

“Those guys were one of the best rock’n’roll bands of the last 20 years. Whenever we do a Crowes song I always think, ‘We better play it right.’”

Blackberry Smoke just added an extra UK date to their upcoming European tour.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history. He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
