Black Keys Star Asks How Is Rock Dead?
"I think that it's so lame of an argument, it seems so stupid," Auerbach said. "It's like the press needs something to talk about. Being 16 years old and getting an electric guitar is never going to get old. There's always going to be kids making music. There's always going to be kids in bands." He then added: "Everything is cyclical. It'll come back around and be popular. The Foo Fighters are like the biggest band in the world. They play stadiums. How is rock dead?"
Auerbach refrained from citing the Black Keys as an example, but he did point out that the acclaimed duo distills rock music to its no-frills essence. "We just do our thing, man," he said. "People come to see a rock and roll show. They come to see The Black Keys. We're not going to be like Cirque du Soleil on stage. It's just us playing music." more on this story
