The boys from Akron, the Black Keys, had a great night at the Grammys last week, winning awards for best rock song and best rock performance for their single “Lonely Boy” and best rock album for ‘El Camino”.
They also provided what was clearly the best performance of the night, although it surely didn’t hurt that they were teamed up with the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band, with the great Dr. John on keyboards. Their performance of “Lonely Boy” tore the place up, waking up a show badly in need of a shot of adrenalin.
It’s a good way to send us into the weekend ….
