The Black Keys' Auerbach Worked on New Dr John Album

(Gibson) The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach is keeping his schedule pretty tight these days. For one, he recently dropped a new disc with the Black Keys: the chart-topping, garage punk set known as El Camino. In addition, he and Keys bandmate Patrick Carney are traveling the U.S., playing arenas in support of the release this spring.

But, somehow, Auerbach still finds time for some kooky collaborations, and a shining example of that is his recent venture with New Orleans icon Dr. John a.k.a. Mac Rebennack to record Dr. John's latest album, Locked Down.

"Watching him come up with parts was just so awesome. Mac is fearless," Auerbach told Rolling Stone of the collection of songs, which he produced. "Like that Farfisa solo on 'Revolution' that's a first-take solo. He just goes for it, man. He told me he hadn't played a Farfisa organ since 1969 when he was with Doug Sahm, and he killed it." more on this story
