Locust Street

  • Frontman Chris Robinson (from The Black Crowes Bootleg Project): "'Locust Street' is a song for everyone's who's lost. Don't forget in this squeaky clean world that sometimes you lose, and there can be songs about losers and where that can take us. Everybody goes through these things. There's a 'Locust Street' in every town in America, at least east of the Mississippi."
