Speaking about the events, Robinson (via Rolling Stone) said, “Growing up in the 1980s, REM was the leading band. Their music has had a huge impact not only on the Atlanta music scene, but also on me and my brother. I’m so happy that I was able to arrange this celebration for a band that means so much to us and to music, and Chronic Town is starting it all.”

In July, REM guitarist Peter Buck and Kim Thayil of Soundgarden surprised The Black Crowes when they took the stage during their second concert in Seattle.
Buck will go with the band as a guest on the song Someone I Love and on their rock ‘n’ roll with Tay’s interpretation of the Velvet Underground.
