The Black Keys are good!

My wife and I had the immense pleasure of watching Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach tear up a very small stage in Los Angeles once. After they played, like a goon I went up to them and had them sign my copy of Magic Potion. They were cool about it. They were also cool about the fact that in such a great big city, the turnout for their performance was definitely less than stellar. They gave 100%

Anyway, once we got home the first thing I did was grab my guitar, plug in my amp, place the knob on volume ten with the drive meter cranked up all the way and.....

...completely sucked in comparison to the guitar mastery of Mr. Auerbach. There isn't a modern guitarist I know of besides Jack White or a drunken Ben Wolcott that possess such shredding skills.

Download this album. It's called Chulahoma. It's a history lesson in awesomism!

Attention fellow music nerds: It's officially debate time...who is the greatest modern guitarist in your humble opinions?

Greatest modern guitarist? Well, over the last 25 years, it's gotta be Johnny Marr...

Jack White is the best I've seen (as far as live performances go)

I've never agree with anyone more! Cheers to you Joe Decie!
