Counting Crows

Along with Kurt Cobain, Adam Duritz of Counting Crows will go down as one of rock's most recognizable voices of the '90s. Breathtaking in its range, his voice is more notable for its ability to convey nearly the entire spectrum of human emotion -- from elation to desolation. Eschewing fashion and production wizardry, the band's debut, August and Everything After, concentrated on powerful, intensely honest songwriting and timeless roots rock. It made a considerable impact on those within blasting radius of 20- and 30-somethings -- things just got a little more real. Duritz employs a dramatist's approach to songwriting -- in his work he takes on the personas of the damaged and the damned: the addicted, the lovelorn, the depressed. Remarkably, Duritz manages to handle his subjects with a compassion free of condescension; he makes their stories, as harrowing as they sometimes are, entertaining and inspiring.

    Counting Crows, and Adam Duritz in particular, have become renowned for the energetic, passionate nature of their live performances. Duritz frequently extends and rewrites songs live, adding extra verses or alternate middle sections and/or endings, sometimes fitting most of another of the band's other songs into the middle of the first. This intimate live performance gives the fans the chance to see the band perform their best hits.
     
     
  • Live at Soundstage

    Counting Crows

    Year: 2003

    Runtime: 53 min

    The Counting Crows know how to have fun. Lead Singer Adam Duritz rocks his way through an evening in which poetry seems to explode from the band's repertoire of blues/rock/country hits. Fresh off the release of their greatest hits album Films About Ghosts (taken from a line in the song "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby"), the band reflects on its 10-year history in a Soundstage episode that highlights the iconic "Mr. Jones," along with other up-tempo tunes including "Hangin' Around," "Rain King" and "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby." Duritz slows down in the mournful rendition of "A Long December" but reinvigorates the mood with the rootsy "American Girls." Other hits featured include "Recovering the Satellites," and "She Don't Want Nobody Near."
