In a brief statement released Tuesday, the band said: “For the time being, Chris Robinson is pursuing a solo career. Steve Gorman has left the band for personal reasons.”

The message, also posted on the band’s Web site, told fans to stay tuned for news about Rich Robinson, who is Chris Robinson’s brother.

No further details were released.

The band wrapped their last tour in 2001 after a landmark stretch on the road. Along with headlining their own tours in 2000 and 2001, the Crowes did a string of dates with guitar great Jimmy Page and had a very successful outing with Oasis – the Tour of Brotherly Love.

Instead of descending into fistfights and acrimony as predicted, the Crowes/Oasis co-bill enjoyed a number of sold-out shows and was a hit with the fans.
