.o0O~ What Is This?
We. Love. Music. Especially live music. That adrenaline you feel building all week up to the day of the show and peaking as the lights go dark. And when it finally kicks in and you feel the drums and bass right through your chest and guitar like lightning striking you down to your toes. The Black Crowes, CRB, Magpie Salute, Trigger Hippy, NEM, Hookah Brown. These are bands that provide the core soundtrack in our lives. We come from different places and backgrounds but share that vibe that amoricana music brings us. We have been friends for years and fans of The Black Crowes for even longer. We love to discuss our favorite performances and hope to bring together discussion and a whole lot of groove that other fans will enjoy as well. Below are some of the folks that you might hear on Overtime@Ringside:

Tall Taper has pulled more live recordings of The Black Crowes than anyone. His tapes are probably in your TBC music collection right now. When he's not surreptitiously surveilling the next target, he loves to golf.
