One night in March 2004, Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz sat in a hotel room in Australia, wondering what to do. The day before, his mother had called with sad news: His grandmother, Selma Feldman, had died. Her funeral was being held half a world away in Baltimore, where Duritz was born. Torn between his love for his grandmother and his duties with the band, Duritz struggled to make a decision. Should he stay on tour with the Counting Crows, or fly back to Maryland for the funeral?

After the Counting Crows released their fifth album, 2008's “Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings,” singer Adam Duritz had had enough - not of the spotlight or the road, but of himself. “I got kind of sick of myself at that point,” Duritz said on the phone from his home in New York recently. “I got tired of just emptying [my] guts onto the page every few years for people. I think I needed a break from it.” So the 49-year-old Baltimore native - who will return on Friday with the Crows to headline the Black-Eyed Susan Day concert at Pimlico Race Course - shifted his focus creatively.

After writing such a morose and introspective song as "Raining in Baltimore," you might expect Adam Duritz to have a downbeat take on the city. But the Counting Crows' lead singer was all smiles Friday at Rams Head Live for an acoustic performance at Carson's Feel Good Fest. The concert raised $260,000 for the John M. Freeman Pediatric Epilepsy Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The concert was inspired by Carson Harris, an infant suffering from a rare form of epilepsy, and named after the song "Feel Good" by Gorillaz.

FOR SEVERAL agonizing months now, I have been agonizing over the agonizing question of whether or not I should run for president. If I had to describe this agonizing process in one word, that word would be: "hard." I have wrestled with many agonizing questions, such as: Do I have any views? If so, what are they? Can I stand harsh media scrutiny? What if Bob Woodward of the Washington Post starts poking around in my past and finds out about certain incidents that I would rather not see rehashed, such as the 1961 explosion, never fully explained, of a boy's-room toilet at Harold C. Crittenden Junior High School?
