Adam Duritz Went Back to Tending Bar at the Viper Room After Counting Crows Hit It Big


Adam Duritz is the lead singer, a founding member and songwriter for Counting Crows. The band still releases new music as recently as their album Butter Miracle Suite One on May 21. Back in the ‘90s, Duritz was a bartender at the Hollywood club The Viper Room. As you’ll learn, Counting Crows was already a success back then, but Duritz wanted a normal job.

One of the show’s episodes is about The Viper Room, so McGrath shared a story he witnessed firsthand as a club crawler in the 90s. We’ll have more with McGrath as he tells stories from the ‘90s and new episodes of Dark Side of the ’90s air Thursdays at 10 p.m. on Vice.
