Although his name is an unmistakable part of the band's moniker, Chris Robinson doesn't see himself as the leader of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood. "I'm like the guy who says, 'Hey, let's go over here,' or 'Hey, why don't we try this?'" he explains. "But if everybody is in tune with one another and is communicating well, I don't really have to tell anybody what to do or what to play. The kind of musical expression we're after is something I want us all to find collectively."
