Is nobody else as excited as I am too see the black keys. I personally think they're more entertaining than the white stripes for only being two members. If you have never heard of them, their defentily worth listening to for a couple of moments.
I really like the Black Keys as well but i've seen them a couple of times and probably wont go see them unless there's no one else i want to see playing at the time. Plus last time i saw them they mainly played there new album stuff and hardly songs off of old albums but there really good live so people should check them out if they've never seen them before.
I rate the Black Keys as can't miss if blues flavored alternative rock appeals to you. The band is one guy on guitar and vocals and the other plays drums. I have seen them twice, they come across better live than they do on CD. My favorite tracks are Your Touch, Stack Shot Billy, The Flame and Girl is on My Mind.
This is a 'new' band to me, that I am definantly going to check out. What I've heard so far sounds really good. Excellent bluesy guitar skills, great voice.
But its gonna be hard to convince me that these guys are better live then the White Stripes. I would put the WS in my top 10 concerts of all time; but then again I am biased. I was in the very center of the front row of their last show at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, CO. Amazing show, being only about 10 feet away from Jack and Meg, with thousands of fans behind me!
