I'm starting to take this kind of stuff personal and all, being old and shit. Still I could die a hundred times and it wouldn't touch this.

I really dislike The Black Keys but that album he did with Auerbach, Locked Down, might be in my top 10 of all time. I saw him at a festival in Chi in the early 90's and he did not look healthy, but sounded great. He walked on gilded splinters.
