Two years after their trippy 2008 album with Danger Mouse, the Black Keys went back to basics and released their self-produced, blues-fueled breakthrough.
“[Miller] said, ‘The whole process was unpleasant,’” Dan Auerbach said. “And for Pat [Carney] and I, honestly, the most unpleasant part was being around him.”
Byrne, the Roots and Kimbra performed "Fame" in honor of the late Bowie, while the Black Keys and Kendrick Lamar introduced new inductees Steve Miller and N.W.A.
It's about a record label owner who makes a long journey and encounters a pair of musicians who play "a raucous brand of doom-laden country blues."
Apparently, Dan Auerbach spent his holiday the same way many of us did: binge-watching 'Making a Murderer.' Unlike the rest of us, he wrote a song about it.
Danger Mouse will introduce listeners to his new label 30th Century with a compilation that includes the Arcs' "Fools Gold."
Nick Alexander worked with several bands on the road, and many of those artists have paid touching tributes to the late merch manager.
“I’ve woken up feeling very out of sorts,” Auerbach said. “Why the hell did it happen there and not where we were playing?”
The band, who were in Paris during the horrific terrorist attacks on Friday, have called off the event as a result of the tragedy.
Dan Auerbach's the Arcs have announced 'The Arcs vs. the Inventors,' an EP with Dr. John and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo, for Record Store Day Black Friday.
