Adam Duritz sings as if he's talking. The Counting Crows frontman paces the stage, gestures with his hands, pauses as if in thought, issues words in bursts, shakes his head. It's as if he's telling a story, explaining himself, confessing. There's also that expressive voice, and his predilection for slowing familiar songs down and reworking their melodies, making them new again - all of it gives the band's appearance Tuesday at Wolf Trap an intimacy that made it feel more like a conversation than a performance.

Friday morning's torrential rain gave fans and handicappers at Pimlico's Black-Eyed Susan Day a much different race card than they had planned for. But by the time the showpiece Black-Eyed Susan Stakes ran under a clear blue sky Friday afternoon and the Counting Crows took the stage later that evening, the torrential downpours that Pimlico officials said dumped 2 1/4 inches of rain at the track were a distant memory. "The track is going to be fast [tomorrow]," Pimlico racing analyst Gabby Gaudet said from her trackside post Friday evening.

Counting Crows, The Fray and Annie Bosko will perform at Pimlico Race Course's Black-Eyed Susan Day on May 16, the Maryland Jockey Club announced this morning. The Crows are most famous for their radio-rock run in the '90s, when singles such as "Mr. Jones," "Round Here" and "A Long December" dominated airwaves. (Fans of the movie "Cruel Intentions" will certainly remember the piano ballad "Colorblind" as well.) Expect to hear "Raining in Baltimore," too. The Fray, which released its fourth album "Helios" a couple of weeks ago, is most known for the singles "Over My Head (Cable Car)"

The deluge forecast to soak the region Friday could make for a soggy, miserable Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course — though officials remain confident in a fast track for a sunny and cool Preakness Stakes on Saturday. A cold front was expected to bring storms overnight and into Friday morning, followed by a moisture-laden low pressure system, according to the National Weather Service. Heavy downpours are expected to dump 2-3 inches of rain, with higher amounts in some areas, flooding streams and small rivers, with a flash flood watch in effect through Friday afternoon.

As Adam Duritz tells it, Counting Crows never wanted overnight success. This may seem strange, considering how well the band is doing at the moment. After all, the Crows' debut album, "August and Everything After," is comfortably ensconced the Top 20 of the Billboard album chart, and the band is enjoying Top-40 success with its current single, "Mr. Jones." Not bad for a band that, as little as a year ago, was largely unknown outside its California home base."I wanted this for a long time," Duritz admits, over the phone from a tour stop in Washington, D.C. "But it's very easy for it to get out of hand, for [success]

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.

Guitarist David Immergluck has admittedly had a bizarre relationship with the Counting Crows. Though he wasn't an official member until 1999, Immergluck has been a huge influence on the West Coast rock band. Before he joined the band, he was a friend and session guitarist who played on their albums. He even introduced singer-songwriter Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson, who formed the group. Though Duritz asked Immergluck on several occasions to join the group before 1999, Immergluck politely declined.

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.

The other night in North Baltimore, a swarm of crows — hundreds of them — filled the canyon of high-rise apartment buildings along University Parkway, between Calvert and Charles streets, and for a moment I thought I had been transported to a surreal moment in a Harry Potter movie, all gold and black and macabre. It was about 7 o'clock, the third day of daylight-saving time, so there was just enough orange in the western sky to provide contrast to the large, black birds as they raced to the left and right, soaring and darting, twisting and diving — an aerial dance spasmodic.

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?
