The [lastfm]Black Crowes[/lastfm] have revealed that they are taking an indefinite hiatus going into 2011, once they wrap up the last dates of their Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys tour.
After 20 years together, the band will reportedly take the break in December, following a six-night stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco.
“We are all in agreement that this is the right time to spend time with our families, friends, outside musical and non musical projects and of course, our personal lives,” drummer Steve Gorman said in a press release. “So, we’re going out swinging with all we got.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Chris Robinson said, “It’s been the three most fulfilling years I’ve ever had with this band. But if we kept going, we might be playing with fate too much.”
“It would be nice to have a 30th anniversary. But we should walk away from this while everyone’s in a good mood,” he added.
The Crowes’ Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys tour kicks off on August 13 at Milwaukee’s Riverside Theater.
