Marc Ford Career

He started out playing the Southern California|Los Angeles underground rock scene in the mid-eighties in bands such as Citadel, which later went by the names Citadel Ltd & Head. Also, Ford played guitar on the self-titled 1984 EP by Jack Grisham’s post-T.S.O.L. band Cathedral of Tears, on which he is credited as “Mark Ford”.

Marc played in the Los Angelos side-project band Stronzo which featured Mickey Finn of Jetboy, Sami Yaffa of Hanoi Rocks|Jetboy, and various other musicians playing shows outside of their main bands. In 1988, he played guitar for Michael Monroe at the Scream club, also with Sami Yaffa on bass, which was the first-ever L.A. show for the former Hanoi Rocks singer.

He played with early Dogs D’Amour|L.A. Guns man Robert Stoddard, and around this time was in Orange County band The Scarecrows.

In the late eighties, Citadel Ltd|Head evolved into the blues-rock outfit Burning Tree, a power trio featuring Ford on guitars and vocals, Mark Dutton on bass and vocals, and Doni Gray on drums and vocals. Burning Tree released their self-titled debut album on Epic Records in 1990.

The Black Crowes

He sat in a couple of times with the Black Crowes in concert, performing The Allman Brothers Band’s classic hit, Dreams. When the Black Crowes severed their relationship with their original guitarist Jeff Cease, he was asked to fill the vacancy. Ford accepted the offer, and a few days later was asked by Slash to join Guns n’ Roses. Ford refused. At the time, Guns n’ Roses were in the middle of a huge stadium world tour; Ford said in 2017 that he would probably be dead now, had he joined them.

Ford stepped into the Crowes’ lineup to record their 1992 sophomore album, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion. The album reached Number 1 on the Billboard charts and earned a double platinum certificate for sales.

Ford performed on the next two Black Crowes releases, Amorica in 1994 and Three Snakes and One Charm in 1996, and is also credited for tracks from the band’s two unreleased albums (1993’s Tall and 1997’s Band, later released together as The Lost Crowes).

His Achievements

Marc’s addition to the Black Crowes sound, which consisted primarily of slide guitar and southern twang, helped define the band at the time. His ability to adapt to core songwriter Rich Robinson’s music and crunchy rhythm guitar sound solidified him and Robinson as the preeminent guitar duo of the 1990s.

During his time in the Black Crowes, he played slide guitar on British band Thee Hypnotics’ 1994 album The Very Crystal Speed Machine, produced by Chris Robinson.

In late 1997, he was dismissed from the Black Crowes, following the band’s stint on the summer-long Furthur Festival tour. Black Crowe’s leaders Chris and Rich Robinson cited Marc’s excessive drug use as the reason for his firing, a reason that was confirmed by the guitarist entering a rehab facility soon after his dismissal.
