The Black Keys are the dominant rock band of the moment, if the GRAMMYS are to be believed. So far at tonight’s GRAMMY Awards, the band have won a pair of awards, while Dan Auerbach has won an additional one for Producer Of The Year (and one of the albums that he produced, Dr. John’s Locked Down, also won a GRAMMY).
Dr. John’s Locked Down exposed the New Orleans legend to a new audience, and much of that was due to the album’s producer: Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Tonight it took home the GRAMMY for Best Blues Album.
Rock, hip-hop and electronic dance music will come together when Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker unites with Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, DJ Z-Trip, Chuck D of legendary rap group Public Enemy and rapper/show host LL Cool J for a super-group performance at the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
Dr. John and New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform at the GRAMMYs with The Black Keys this Sunday.
Bruce Springsteen nabbed three GRAMMY nominations Wednesday night, and the song that bears his name got two more. Meanwhile, “Springsteen” — the song by country singer Eric Church that name drops several Bruce classics — was nominated for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.
