THE BLACK CROWES lead singer Chris Robinson says even he doesn't know for sure if the band have officially broken up or if they're simply taking a break.

"It's like any relationship,'' he told Spin magazine for its January issue. "When it dissolves, no matter how it dissolves ... it's still raw.

The bluesy Southern rock band announced a year ago they were going on hiatus while Robinson, 36, pursued a solo career. His debut album, "New Earth Mud", came out in October.

"Last Halloween, when I walked away from the last meeting, it was kinda like, 'Well, see ya when we see ya.' Since then some people have quit," said Robinson, who formed the band with his guitarist brother, Rich.

"I love THE BLACK CROWES and I love my brother. He's one of the most unbelievably talented people I've ever met. It has nothing to do with loving him. But change is inevitable."
