Checking in with the Counting Crows

I think it's safe to say if it wasn't for guitarist David Immergluck, there might not be a Counting Crows.

Way back in the '80s, Immergluck introduced singer Adam Duritz to guitarist David Bryson, who went on to form a duo they called the Counting Crows. Immergluck himself played on all their albums, and joined the group full-time in 1999.

Here's a link to a piece I did on the band in today's paper. They're performing at Merriweather Post Pavilion Saturday with Augustana and Michael Franti and Spearhead ...

I asked Immergluck to pick the Counting Crows song that resonates with him most at the moment. He chose "Long December."

"It's just one of the more perfect Counting Crows songs," he said. "It's cheesy to choose it. ... We do a lot of different things, but if someone who had never heard the Counting Crows wanted an example of what the Counting Crows sounds like in one song, that would be the one I'd play."
