Blues-rock rivivalists The Black Keys have been on a steady climb to the top. In 2010, the band saw mainstream success with their sixth studio album Brothers (Nonesuch). From Billboard Top 20 singles and commercial placement to constant radio play and GRAMMY wins, The Black Keys have been everywhere! On their eighth full-length release, Turn Blue (Nonesuch, 2014), the duo once again teamed up with longtime producer Danger Mouse. The album boasts 11 solid tracks of catchy blues infused rock that remind us how great Danger Mouse and the Keys work together. The band was just recently nominated for Best Rock Song ("Fever") and Best Rock Album (Turn Blue) at the upcoming 2015 GRAMMY Awards.
Patrick Carney recently spent time with two very lucky fans (pictured above) at Amoeba Hollywood, picking out some of his favorite records for them as part of a radio contest for Alt 98.7FM. He tells a hilarious story about hearing Led Zeppelin for the first time after buying a Vanilla Ice record, how trying to rip off a Can beat led to the band's first hit record, and so much more. Watch the full episode below for all of Patrick's picks.
