The Black Crowes are celebrating the 20th anniversary (!) of their debut album, Shake Your Moneymaker, with a two CD set of acoustic versions of their songs, a tour and then they are going on hiatus. Rolling Stone has the story, but this doesn't sound like a breakup, it actually does sound like a break. I think that more bands should go on "breaks," too often when bands are doing well, they are on a album/tour treadmill that doesn't allow them to live their lives and pursue other stuff that they want to do. I saw the Crowes on their reunion tour opening for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and they were really good, so I hope that this isn't their final tour.
