Is it a bad luck or merely bad news? You decide. Hard rock jam band The Black Crowes lost two of its members. Last week, the group's keyboardist Eddie Hawrysch, who had played with the band since 1991, exited the band for "personal issues". And on Wednesday September 6th, just one day before the band set to kick of their massive fall tour, guitarist Marc Ford also called it quit.

On Ford's resignation, the man's spokesperson claims health issues as the reason the musician called it quits, saying "All the difficult work he has done to gain his longest period of sobriety ever was in jeopardy while touring." On the other hand, Crowes manager, Pete Angelus, claimed Ford's departure as less than amicable for the guitarist was "immediately terminating his agreement" with the Crowes without giving 12 weeks notice required by his contract.
