Great article on band’s brief history:

[ http://marqueemag.com/2012/05/01/roadhouse-rebels/ ]

Per the above article in Marquee Magazine, all three surviving members of The Doors recently contributed to the song “Breakin’ A Sweat,” produced by Skrillex for the documentary film: Re:Generation [For a great short video on the making of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pT40_00AGQU&feature=related].  It was the first time since 1978 that John Densmore participated with Krieger and Ray Manzarek on a project. 

According to Krieger, they’ve recorded another track with Tech N9ne [per this linked article, not only will Densmore participate, but Jim Morrison’s voice will be dubbed in as well to provide all four Doors performing on the Tech N9ne track: http://www.examiner.com/article/the-doors-and-tech-n9ne]. 

Krieger and Manzarak will be touring Mexico, Israel and Europe, including Russia, the Ukraine and Poland in June/July with a couple U.S. dates in September [ http://www.rayandrobby.com/ ].  Look for the Roadhouse Rebels to reappear sometime soon, as well.

Rich Robinson, Steve Molitz, Joe Magistro:  THROUGH A CROOKED SUN (2011):  http://www.amazon.com/Through-Crooked-Sun-Rich-Robinson/dp/B005IY3A5U/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1338486869&sr=1-1  [“When the Black Crowes either broke up or went on indefinite hiatus (it depends on who you ask and sometimes when you ask), guitarist Rich Robinson spent a few months with his family at home, figuring out what to do next. There were some deaths in his extended family that just added to how strange it was adjusting to life without the Crowes, and how strange it was to be working on projects without his brother, vocalist Chris Robinson. He ended up building a studio in his Connecticut home and worked on his production chops. New avenues were opening, too, with Robinson composing the soundtrack for the 2001 film Highway while seriously working on his painting for the first time since the Crowes had formed.

In 2003, he formed the four-piece band Hookah Brown, which toured a bit before Robinson realized he couldn’t stand band politics any longer. Going it alone meant singing lessons, since the guitarist had never handled lead vocals. It took one lesson for Robinson to realize his technique was all wrong, but it built up his confidence and renewed his interest in releasing an album. Playing everything himself but the drums, Robinson soon had enough for an album. Joe Magistro took care of the drum parts, then guest appearances from ex-Crowes keyboardist Eddie Hawrsch and BR5-49’s Donnie Herron were added, and the album was done. Robinson released the result, Paper, in August of 2004 on his own Keyhole label. Shortly afterward in 2005, the Black Crowes reunited and had a successful run of records, beginning with an acoustic duet with brother Chris called Brothers of a Feather in 2007. The next year, the Crowes released the full-length Warpaint, which was succeeded by the double-album Before the Frost…Until the Freeze in 2009. Two years later, the Crowes went on hiatus and Robinson released his second solo album, Through a Crooked Sun.”  –jambase.com]

Known in part for his innovative approach to playing and programming vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers, Molitz has made several appearances at Moogfest (A Tribute to Bob Moog), and recently participated in the development and design of the latest Moog Synthesizer, the Little Phatty.  He also recently completed an interview along with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock for The Fender Rhodes Story, a forthcoming documentary about the Fender Rhodes Electric Piano.  Molitz’s music has also been featured in film and television, and recent highlights include his contributions to the score and soundtrack of the forthcoming Ridley Scott film, ‘Tell-Tale’, as well as the music he wrote and recorded for the Universal video game ‘Scarface: The World Is Yours.’”  –jambase.com]

They were best known commercially for their hit song “Weird Science” from the film of the same name and also on their fourth album “Dead Man’s Party”.
