Hard to Handle is the first ever account of this great American rock band's beginning, middle, and end, told from the exclusive, insider perspective of founding member, Steve Gorman. As the band's drummer and voice of reason, Gorman tried to keep the Black Crowes together musically—and in one piece emotionally. In this memoir, he makes it clear just how impossible that job was. From the tumultuous recording sessions, to the coke and weed-field tours, to backstage hangs with legends like Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and the Rolling Stones, Gorman shares never-before-heard stories with great insight, candor, and humor. Here, it is obvious that they just don't make bands like the Black Crowes anymore—crazy, brilliant, self-destructive, inspiring, and, ultimately, not built to last.
