Guess who’s playing with The Black Crowes

lutherAlthough it’s darn near impossible to tell from this photo, Luther Dickinson, the guitar virtuoso from the North Mississippi All Stars, is playing lead guitar on The Black Crowes‘ latest tour!

On Sunday (3/2), I was lucky enough to catch the first show of the tour and hear their entire new album played for the first time in front of a live audience.

Quite a show.
