The Magpie Salute
The Magpie Salute is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame - guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien - alongside drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The Magpie Salute also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen.During an interview Rich Robinson stated:The name The Magpie Salute comes from a superstition based in the UK... There are many variations, but the version Im drawn to is the belief that if you see a Magpie, you would do well to salute it to ward off negativity, or to have a good day. The way you salute the Magpie, based on some traditions is to say Good Mornin Captain. The reason we salute is to show were unarmed, or what I like to say is we come in peace. The Magpie falls within the Crowe umbrella of species, figuratively and literally. Magpies can be black and white which represents the light and the dark. I figured all of these things touch on many aspects of my life and this experience.
