Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon... and Alan Niven presents former Black Crowes drummer, Steve Gorman (recorded June 2020) Before we get to Steve, Alan Niven explains why he passed on the Black Crowes back in the day. Here's a hint, it had absolutely nothing to do with the band! We also discuss Guns N' Roses 1988 tour with Aerosmith as well as  David Lee Roth & AC/DC rescinding supporting slot offers.  Steve Gorman discusses his new book 'The Life And Death Of The Black Crowes - A Memoir', the summer return of hockey & baseball, David Coverdale, opening for Robert Plant at The Montreal Forum, Guns N' Roses, Alan Niven turning down the Black Crowes, hanging out with Robert Plant on tour, his new band Trigger Hippy, corporate sponsorship and creating a great PR moment, becoming more of a jam band, remembering Eddie Harsch, Jimmy Page and much more.  Quotes:  "We would listen to Guns N' Roses and we took a lot from... not their sound - we never wanted to be as hard as they were, but just their attitude."  "The Beatles made me love music, but R.E.M. made me play music."
