After 7 years away, Drivin' N Cryin' head back out on the road
Seven years after their last album, Southern rockers Drivin' N Cryin' are back with some live dates. But will there be a new record?
Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ were formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1985. Sharing bills with Neil Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sonic Youth and Soul Asylum, their southern-skewed rock generated modest chart success during the following decade, although the restless nature of frontman/guitarist Kevn Kinney would prove an Achilles’ heel. Kinney checks in ahead of some rare UK dates.
The story goes that at twenty-four you’d all but retired from music and were working at a sewage plant when you met your eventual bandmate and manager Tim Nielsen.
Tim was a popular musician in Atlanta. He saw me play, we hooked up and our first show sold out. Which was very encouraging as I was getting tired of playing to five people.
